The Data & AI and Cloud CoE by Tech Mahindra will accelerate the adoption of Data Analytics & Ethical AI, promote a cognitive approach across smart services, and contribute to Saudi Vision 2030's digital-led transformation goals. According to CP Gurnani, MD and CEO of Tech Mahindra, the world of Data & AI and Cloud is constantly evolving as the priorities of public and private sectors shift both globally and locally, particularly in Saudi Arabia. To keep up with this changing landscape, it is important to focus on developing new IPs and assets, promoting innovation, and investing in the training and upskilling of local talent. To achieve these goals, Tech Mahindra has partnered with MCIT to establish a CoE that can help address the digital transformation needs of Saudi Arabia. This initiative is in line with the Saudi Vision 2030, which aims to create a diverse and digital-first ecosystem. Tech Mahindra plans to collaborate with MCIT and local universities to create a robust ecosystem that can support these goals. Tech Mahindra will host design thinking workshops, hackathons around Data & AI and Cloud to nurture innovation and accelerate the Kingdom’s transformation to a digital economy. The partnership will provide training and development for 2500 Saudi nationals by providing project deployment programs that enhance skills and develop careers in Data & AI and Cloud. Tech Mahindra prioritises investment in emerging technologies and innovative solutions to facilitate digital transformation and effectively cater to the changing demands of its customers, thereby ensuring the best possible service.
