During COMEX 2024, Omantel proudly announced its strategic partnership with two hyperscalers: Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Cloud.

Omantel and AWS will collaborate to establish a sovereign cloud services center and build and operate an integrated e-commerce platform in Oman, which is projected to be valued at OMR 24 million.

On the other hand, Omantel and Google Cloud will set up the first distributed cloud edge service in the Middle East, Turkey and Africa (META) region to provide generative AI and data analytics solutions.

Commenting on this recent milestone, Omantel CEO, Talal Said Al Mamari, said, “At Omantel, we always strive to have an outstanding participation in the premier and largest tech event in the Sultanate of Oman, COMEX. This year, through our participation, we announced strategic partnerships with global companies, Amazon Web Services and Google. This reaffirms our commitment to being an integrated provider of innovative technical solutions in the Sultanate of Oman and the region.”

The recently unveiled partnership between Omantel and AWS also includes the establishment of a cloud center of excellence (CCoE). Together, the entities aim to provide generative AI (GenAI) solutions, as outlined in a plan unveiled earlier this year during MWC 2024.

The establishment of the CCoE and sovereign cloud capabilities will expedite Oman’s strategic vision, which centers around digital transformation. This initiative will empower both public and private sector organizations to innovate more rapidly and enhance customer service through cloud-enabled solutions.

Sharing his remarks on the recent partnership, Mohamed Afifi, Head of Sales, GCC and Levant, Worldwide Public Sector, AWS, stated, “This collaboration marks a significant step forward in cloud technology, providing Omani organizations with a secure, scalable, and compliant cloud environment tailored to local regulatory requirements.”

Utilizing a sovereign cloud, businesses can confidently transition to cloud services, leveraging AWS' cutting-edge technology and Omantel's robust infrastructure. Moreover, reduced latency and improved performance will be achieved by keeping data and workloads closer to end-users.
