Rami Qasem, President & CEO of GE Oil & Gas for the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey, signed the MoU with Dr. Ismail Tag, Acting President & Provost of PI.

Rami Qasem said: “We are thankful to Petroleum Institute for the opportunity to partner in the educational program to further strengthen the skills of PI’s Emirati students. It reflects our commitment to support ADNOC in meeting their human resource development goals. The agreement underlines our commitment to build a pool of talented professionals who can take up diverse professional roles in the oil and gas sector. The various training programs, workshops and training sessions will be structured to promote a culture of innovation among the young talented Nationals, while providing them hands-on insights on how the industry operates in real settings.”

Dr. Ebrahim Al Hajri, Director of External Relations & Collaborations (ERC) and Assistant Professor for Mechanical - Engineering Department at PI said: “The agreement with GE Oil & Gas highlights our focus on promoting industry linkages to build the skills of our students. The experience of learning from the professionals will enable them to gain a stronger understanding of the industry.

GOIC signs a Memorandum of Understanding with Turkish International Cooperation Platform


4123The Gulf Organization for Industrial Consulting (GOIC) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Turkish International Cooperation Platform (ICP) to exchange expertise and cooperate in organising specialised economic conferences for five years. The MoU was signed at GOIC’s headquarters in Doha, Qatar yesterday.

The Memorandum of Understanding was signed by GOIC Secretary General Mr. Abdulaziz Bin Hamad Al-Ageel representing the Organization and ICP President Mr. Jenkiz Ozkenjil on behalf of the Platform. The event was attended by Mrs. Balja Kurdan Al-Ayuti, Turkish Deputy Ambassador in Doha, Dr. Afshen Hormozlo, ICP Consultative Committee Vice Chairman and Mr. Mohammed Al-Mukhaini, Assistant Secretary General at GOIC, in addition to a number of directors from the Organization.

Mr. Al-Ageel said: “The main objective of this MoU is to foster cooperation, particularly in the economic areas in light of Turkey’s unique geographic location which highly contributes in boosting gulf exports.” He added: “This cooperation will chiefly encompass international conferences and mutual investments. In fact, the Turkish experience in the different economic areas can benefit Gulf countries and Yemen, and GOIC can play a major role in this regard.”

Mr. Ozkenjil opined that Turkey and the Arabian Gulf share common grounds; he said: “We share almost more than one thousand years of history, religion and culture, yet distance set us apart in the last 60 years. Hence, it is very important to bring together decision makers from the Gulf and Turkey to develop various economic sectors. Thankfully, the first Bosphorus summit was attended by 20 countries, and the number of countries attending this event gradually increased to reach 51 countries participating at the 4th Bosphorus summit. In addition, we are expecting 70 countries to attend the next summit.”

Furthermore, Mr. Ozkenjil highlighted the Platform’s participation at the last two gatherings of the “Industrialists’ Conference”. He stated: “Our objective is to cooperate for the best of the conference and replicate the Turkish experience in the Gulf.” He hoped to see future Bosphorus summits held in the Arabian Gulf in coordination with GOIC to choose the topics, themes, panellists and participants.” Mr. Ozkenjil also hoped to extend the duration of the MoU to more than five years.

Mr. Abdulaziz Bin Hamad Al-Ageel is an honorary member of the Bosphorus summit. In this regard, GOIC started cooperating with the ICP to host the fifth Bosphorus Summit at the Four Seasons Hotel, Istanbul, Turkey in December 2014. The Summit will be entitled “Future Scenarios: Identifying Obstacles and Refining Dialogues”. Nearly 70 countries are expected to take part in this summit represented by presidents, prime ministers, officials and businessmen who will debate various political and economic topics.

MICROSOFT SIGNS MOU WITH NEW HORIZONS TO SUPPORT THE LAUNCH OF CLOUD ACADEMY


534Microsoft Arabia has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with New Horizons Saudi Arabia part of -Al-Khaleej Training & Education- to launch the Cloud Academy, which aims to provide a dedicated diploma-training program on Cloud computing technologies to IT companies, students as well as IT customers. Through this initiative, Microsoft & New Horizons aim to increase availability of skilled workers in the Saudi IT market and provide employment opportunities to Saudi citizens. The two companies have agreed to work jointly in developing the Cloud Academy program; Microsoft will support with providing training contents and technology updates while New Horizon will contribute training infrastructure including expert trainers and other resources.

The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was sealed at a signing ceremony and launch event held on February 25, 2014 at the Four Seasons Hotel in the Kingdom Tower, Riyadh.

“At Microsoft we are committed to helping our customers and partners embrace the cloud with maximum flexibility, and we are delighted to work with New Horizons, one of the premier training organization in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, to extend our reach in this effort.,” said Samir Noman, President of Microsoft Arabia.

Mr. Noman went on to say: “For this initiative, the Cloud Academy will provide training tracks for partners, enterprise customers and IT students. The introductory track will focus on Public Cloud, with future tracks planned for Private Cloud as well. We consider the Cloud Academy to be a key initiative by Microsoft and New Horizons to deliver on the government’s priority of nurturing a knowledge-based growth economy in the Kingdom based on a model of sustainable development.”

Phase one of the Cloud Academy diploma program will begin on March 2, 2014 and on conclusion, trainees will sit for exams to achieve certification.

Jean-Philippe Courtois, President of Microsoft International, who also attended the MoU signing, said: “The Cloud Academy will help Saudi companies of all sizes to take advantage of powerful cloud-based solutions, creating more productive, profitable businesses. Cloud skills are now an essential part of a modern, competitive workforce and this is a training program that underlines Microsoft’s long-term commitment to the cloud and to Saudi Arabia. Through our innovative solutions such as Office 365, we offer a seamless integration of Cloud Computing. Uniquely, Microsoft is the only company to offer customers private, hybrid and public cloud, along with a rich ecosystem of Microsoft partners to deliver the cloud to users on their terms. We continues to design and deliver cloud solutions that allow our customers to move to the cloud when they are ready and on their terms.”

Microsoft recognizes that the availability of skilled technical and sales resources is critical for partners to develop their cloud practices, thus increasing employment opportunities for young Saudis. Organizations are often challenged for resource allocation, which restricts their ability to take advantage of the latest technology trends. To overcome these issues, Microsoft partners can now take advantage of Cloud Academy to get the skills required to offer their customers the latest software that provides a scalable, flexible and cost-effective Cloud model.

Microsoft has already launched Office 365, its public cloud, in Saudi Arabia, offering the perfect vehicle for Saudi partners to provide small and medium-sized businesses with the latest software advantages such as the pay-as-you-go model and the ability to quickly scale at minimal capital expense. In addition, Microsoft is offering a host of programs as well as incentives to partners to help them develop their Office 365 business, including Fast Track Online partner support.
