Benefitting government

Internet solutions and services provider, and subsidiary of Orascom Telecom Holding Company, Linkdotnet, will use its twelfth show this year to urge government decision makers not just to take all their services digital and online, but to intelligently integrate these in order to offer what the firm calls truly ‘citizen-centric' solutions.

Internet solutions and services provider, and subsidiary of Orascom Telecom Holding Company, Linkdotnet, will use its twelfth show this year to urge government decision makers not just to take all their services digital and online, but to intelligently integrate these in order to offer what the firm calls truly ‘citizen-centric' solutions.

"This is a key focus area for our company," explains Sherif Dahan, Linkdotnet's territory manager for the GCC. "That is, trying to urge governments around the region to go with an integrated approach - whereby the citizen can access all their government's services through one portal with one password - rather than via the kind of disjointed initiatives that can sometimes occur."

The team at Linkdotnet, which itself claims to be the largest integrated telecommunications services provider in the region with more than 1,000 consultants, web developers and support staff, will be keen on talking up for example their involvement in Egypt's e-government portal. This Microsoft-partnered solution was, Dahan claims, the first "joint top government" approach to e-goverment in the region, comparable to similar solutions in the UK, Singapore and Canada.

"Our primary focus this year will be government e-services, especially our new integration layer for connecting these," Dahan adds.
