A Prestigious Arab Technology Award Goes Again To The Electronic Transformation Programme (e-TP)
The award-winning Electronic Transformation Programme (e-TP) at Saudi Arabia's Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC) got yet another feather to its cap winning for the second time The Energy & Utilities Implementation of the Year Award at the Arab Technology Awards 2010.
Held every year on the sidelines of GITEX Technology Week, the Arab Technology Awards night is a flagship event of Arabian Computer News (ACN) magazine which is issued by ITP, a Middle East leading publishing group.
The Arab Technology Awards recognize the outstanding work of private and public sector companies in the field of information technology in the entire region.
Receiving the award at the gala event held last Monday at Armani Hotel, Dubai, in the presence of over 300 leading IT professionals, Abdullah Al Khedher, e-TP Director, said winning the award again amid fierce competition from local, regional and international hopefuls speaks volumes about e-TP successes and achievements.
"This achievement is the outcome of a collective team work", said Al Khedher dedicating the award to His Excellency Fehied Al Shareef, Governor of SWCC, for his unwavering support, and to the entire team at the e-TP Programme.
The e-TP Programme, which won the same award in the year 2008, was launched five years ago as part of the Saudi e-government project. The e-TP Programme prepares the corporation for a post-privatization era according to Al Khedher.
"The e-TP Programme is fully in line with the senior management strategic decision to introduce the latest technology." Al Khedher said the e-TP Programme improves system, raises efficiency, performance and productivity levels rendering SWCC into an example to be followed by private and public sector companies.
