Abu Dhabi.. The Arab Federation for Digital Economy has issued a brief book under the title: “After the huge budgets, have the digital transformation projects achieved their goals?” It was written by Dr. Eng. Ali Mohamed El Khoury, Advisor to the Council of Arab Economic Unity, and President of the Arab Federation for Digital Economy.
The book analyzes the current situation of digital transformation projects in Arab governments, the four stages of transformation in the government system, and the most important obstacles and challenges that impede the process of development and progress. The book provides some brief and suggested solutions in this context.
The book explains that industry concepts are now pushing for enabling applications for machines to communicate with each other through electronic networks and to make decentralized decisions at levels that exceed human capabilities.
This is also prompting the emergence of business models for institutions that are similar to “smart factories” characterized by their automated capabilities for self-development, dealing with changes and sustainable learning.
The ability to develop service and production systems at unprecedented levels of efficiency, effectiveness and performance levels; And that institutions in the Arab region have no choice but to continue and keep pace with progress in implementing digital transformation projects.
It is worth noting that the Arab region and many countries of the world have witnessed in the past two decades thousands of initiatives and projects in the field of digital transformation, aiming to support its capabilities as a government responsible for making many decisions and providing services, and based on the vision of leaders in these countries to transform government services into electronic and smart services.
