Saudi Telecom Company (STC) and Tech Mahindra are to jointly roll out joint services to support Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030.
Through its enterprise focused business unit, STC Business, the Saudi telco will work with the ICT solutions provider to develop digitalisation solutions, built around the Cloud and IoT. These services will support future Smart City and industry specific needs in the public and private sector covering sectors such as health, oil & gas and transportation among others.

An aspiring ICT leader with robust technology infrastructure and strong footprint in the region, STC is a key implementation partner for Vision 2030.
“Digitisation is key to the success of Vision 2030’s transformation objectives, which is why we are partnering with Tech Mahindra to innovate around the cloud and IoT, and encourage innovation across the eco-system with the solutions and usage cases we develop together,” said STC senior vice president of enterprise, Dr. Tarig M. Enaya.
“As a global Digital Transformation leader, Tech Mahindra is driving technology-led transformation at many leading global enterprises and with STC as partners we have increased our capability manifold. We are very optimistic that with STC as our partner, Tech Mahindra can immensely contribute to the Kingdom’s march towards achieving Vision 2030,” said Manish Vyas, president, communications business & chief executive - network services at Tech Mahindra.
