Pacific Control Systems (PCS) has announced that it will launch a Centre of Excellence for Government Digital Services and Lifestyle.
The centre is intended to partner with government organisations and other stakeholders across technologies and vertical sectors, to develop new solutions for digital government services. The centre will be located at PCS main Techno Park headquarters in Dubai.
PCS says that the centre will focus on technology areas including network infrastructure, cloud services, big data analytics, Internet of Things, social media, next generation digital enablement and other disruptive technologies. Development will focus on initiatives such as government cloud services, mobile government, shared digital enablement platform, Internet of Things for smarter communities, big data analytics, open data and web API, digital marketplaces, security and privacy, digital innovation and research and training and development services.
The company has partnered with other vendors for the centre, including Microsoft, Fujitsu, Intel, VMware, WSO2 and WSO2.Telco.
The Centre of Excellence will also leverage Pacific Controls next generation Cyber Security Operation Center (CSOC) to protect operations.
Dilip Rahulan, executive chairman and CEO of Pacific Controls commented: "Adoption of state of the art digital technologies is no longer an option for governments and businesses. Governments are transforming their businesses around the needs of citizens and businesses are taking full advantage of available and emerging technologies in order to meet the challenges of 21st century. The digital technologies domain is very vast, extremely complex and rapidly evolving and hence not within the competence of any one government entity to fully leverage to its advantage.
"It was imperative that an organisation brings together the full range of expertise and global best practices to support the government sectors and live up to the challenge of the digital age. It was with this spirit that Pacific Controls established the Center of Excellence for Government Digital Services and Lifestyle in partnership with leading Industry players, such as Fujitsu, Microsoft, Intel, VMware, WSO2, WSO2.Telco to facilitate benefits offered by rapidly evolving digital landscape," Rahulan added.
"The best way to achieve digital transformation in the shortest possible time is through Public-Private Partnership. We will continue to partner with other global technology companies to enhance the offering within the Center of Excellence for Government Digital Services and Lifestyle," he added.
