MUSCAT, Oman, 14 April 2015 - Cisco will be a Platinum Sponsor for the sixth annual COMEX Oman Forum, where it will return to showcase innovation around the theme of “Smart Oman” development.
At COMEX 2015, the leading ICT event in the Sultanate, Cisco will showcase its technology solutions across three key themes: safety, security and the Internet of Everything; Big Data, Cloud and Application Centric Infrastructure; and Collaboration, Mobility, and Enterprise Technologies. Demonstrations will highlight how the Internet of Everything is driving innovation to create smarter connections, enhancing productivity, creating value and delivering citizen benefits.
Cisco predicts that the IoE – the linking of people, process, data, and things – is creating new capabilities, richer experiences, and economic opportunities, with a global USD 19 trillion Value at Stake over the next decade for both private and public sectors.
“We are delighted to once again be a Platinum Sponsor for COMEX 2015, giving us an opportunity to demonstrate how Cisco and our ecosystem of partners can help organizations in Oman leverage the power of the Internet of Everything to transform their operations,” said Iyad Alchammat, General Manager, Cisco Oman. “As Oman continues its thrust to be one of the best-connected countries in the world, the IoE has the potential to further accelerate the country’s pace of change and impact areas like government, healthcare, education, tourism and hospitality.”
Oman ranked fifth in the Arab world, and 40th out of 144 countries overall, in the Networked Readiness Index 2014 of the Global Information Technology Report, published by the World Economic Forum, making the country well positioned to move from traditional to digital and fully capture the value of the IoE.
