Bahrain’s Central Informatics Organisation (CIO), IBM and Gulf Business Machine (GBM) last week launched the region’s first e-government solution centre. The centre aims to help Bahrain government departments and other governments in the Middle East to establish and roll out e-government projects using open-standard solutions. “Standards based technologies offer unprecedented opportunities for modernization throughout society in our country and we believe that this is the best way to move forwards with e-government projects not only in Bahrain, but in the whole Middle East region as well,” said Sheikh Ahmed Ateyatalla Al Khalifa, president of the CIO. “We have a unique experience in that we’ve built our e-government infrastructure on open standards and I am proud to say that it has been a successful project,” he added.
