The centre will reportedly be the first of kind created in the Middle East region.
The Arab Academy for Science, Technology & Maritime Transport (AASTMT) has signed a strategic partnership with end-user experience management specialist Nexthink to establish an Analytics Center of Excellence in the Middle East.
Collaborating through AASTMT's Academy Company for ICT (ACICT), Nexthink and ACICT will establish the new centre at the AASTMT Cairo Campus in Egypt.
Ahmed Daher, CEO, ACICT said, "We are glad to have partnered with Nexthink.
