Dubai telecommunications giant Etisalat will deploy its One Cloud platform to support the digital transformation process under way at ASGC, Construction Week Awards 2018’s Highly Commended Contractor of the Year.

The strategic partnership will see Etisalat delivering its enterprise-level cloud systems, combined with its secure-managed IP Connect service, to ASGC. One Cloud is an end-to-end managed cloud package that provides infrastructure-as-a-service, managed security services, managed backup, managed applications, and managed disaster recovery services. In a statement, Etisalat said One Cloud is “designed to satisfy the security, performance, and data location needs of UAE enterprises”.

ASGC’s chief information officer, Herbert Fuchs, said Etisalat was picked as the Dubai contractor’s partner since One Cloud “perfectly meets” the company’s needs for scalability, flexibility, reliability, and perspectives, as well as offers “the most attractive [returns on investment] among the cloud vendors” analysed by the company. 

Fuchs added: “Etisalat’s One Cloud platform represents one of the foundations in our digital transformation roadmap, which spans across all aspects of our business – ranging from IT [information technology] operations and service delivery to cross-departmental core business process automation, onwards to construction asset optimisation and labour productivity and safety.”

Etisalat’s vice president for enterprise sales, Ragy Magdy, said the agreement with ASGC contributes towards setting “a benchmark in the construction sector”.

“With Etisalat’s corporate strategy focusing on ‘driving the digital future’, we are working closely with all our customers and partners to transform their businesses by investing in digital services and solutions.”
