Saudi Geological Survey signs on Nexthink
The IT company will introduce advanced real-time analytics that will aid in empowering SGS’ workforce.
Saudi Geological Survey (SGS), an independent entity of the Ministry of Energy, Industry and Mineral Resources, has entered into an agreement with Nexthink to implement an advanced IT analytics solution.
Intended to deliver real-time visibility of its environment across multiple locations in Saudi Arabia, the new platform will also keep the council of Ministers up-to-date on the latest data.
Bander Al-Gahtani, director general of Information Technologies and Communications, SGS said, "SGS relies on a large number of critical IT applications to help us meet our business objectives and we need to ensure the best performance for our end-users. With Nexthink, we have a real-time view of our entire infrastructure that enables us to tackle issues as and when they happen. The IT team can now easily assist our employees even in remote areas at any time - efficiently and securely."
Serving as an independent entity, SGS is mandated in exploring Saudi Arabia's geography for rich mineral deposits, mapping potential development sites, as well as conducting a variety of geo-hazard, geo-environmental and hydrogeological studies.
The new analytics platform and subsequent strengthening on its IT environment will help facilitate remote connections and offer uninterrupted service to its growing mobile-workforce
Commenting on the implementation, Eng. Sameh Al-Nakhbi, manager of Network Systems Department, SGS added, "Nexthink provides the necessary information to instantly understand any issues end-users are having; enabling our team to proactively investigate and remediate issues before they can impact efficiency and productivity."
