MCIT Organizes Workshop on ICT Infrastructure for Entities Moving to New Administrative Capital



The Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) has organized a workshop on ICT Infrastructure at MCIT headquarters in Smart Village. The Workshop was attended by 109 heads of information systems and digital transformation units in 43 ministries and government agencies relocating to the New Administrative Capital.
 
The workshop is within the framework of the Digital Transformation Academy, launched by the ICT Minister. The Academy provides ongoing technical support to the personnel at the information systems and digital transformation units in the state’s administrative apparatus while focusing on the entities relocating to the New Administrative Capital.
 
The workshop stressed that the government agencies’ relocation to the New Administrative Capital represents a pragmatic shift to a smart participatory ecosystem. The workshop also pointed out MCIT efforts to create an enabling work environment that involves building a robust infrastructure, applying smart systems and applications, and building employees’ digital capabilities.
 
The Academy will involve more interactive seminars and workshops on digital transformation technologies and Digital Egypt systems. The coming activities will delve into the different technologies of digital transformation, most notably big data. Other capacity-building programs will target employees at the state’s administrative apparatus and entities relocating to the New Administrative Capital.
 
So far, the Academy has trained 33,000 employees and handed 40,212 certificates over. In addition, a range of specialized capacity-building programs was organized for 1,397 employees, granting 3,427 certificates. MCIT is also organizing 10 programs to train 1,651 employees by October 2021.
 
It is worth mentioning that MCIT developed a plan to provide technical support to information systems and digital transformation units. The plan comprises creating an organizational structure; organizing training programs, workshops, and seminars to build unit heads and employees’ capabilities; launching the Digital Transformation Academy, and developing a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for it.
