Partnership with Injazat

Abu Dhabi’s digital transformation company, Injazat partnered with Oracle to create an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) dedicated region within Injazat’s data centres. This will enable the UAE’s federal government and Abu Dhabi’s local government entities to access Oracle cloud applications and infrastructure services while complying with regulatory requirements.

The partnership was signed by Ussama Dahabiyeh, CEO of Injazat and Nick Redshaw, senior vice president – Cloud Technology and UAE country leader at Oracle.

“In today’s rapidly evolving tech landscape, embracing partnerships with leading global technology providers, and enabling their localisation have become a key priority for businesses and governments,” said Mansoor Al Mansoori, chairman, Injazat.

“This partnership is a testament to our commitment to meeting this need while continuing to spearhead innovation in digital transformation for the UAE government.”

“We are proud to partner with Oracle to develop Injazat’s Dedicated Region to provide customers with key Oracle services they have depended on for years, now enhanced through a cloud platform that abides by local laws and regulations,” said Dahabiyeh.”

Partnership with UAE Cyber Security Council

Additionally, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between the UAE Cyber Security Council and Oracle at the event.
