MCIT Organizes Big Data Workshop for Entities Moving to New Administrative Capital


The Digital Transformation Academy of the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) has organized a workshop for the heads and staff members—including data engineers and data and business mechanism analysts—of the information systems and digital transformation units at the ministries and government agencies relocating to the New Administrative Capital. The aim is to achieve operational excellence and maintain the sustainability of digital transformation operations.

The workshop focused on Big Data as one of the digital transformation technologies. The workshop introduced Big Data, its techniques and mining tools and reviewed real-life cases and examples of using it. Around 70 trainees participated in the workshop.

The workshop is one in a series of activities organized within the framework of the Digital Transformation Academy, which was launched by the ICT Minister Amr Talaat to provide technical support to the heads and staff members of the information systems and digital transformation units at the state’s administrative apparatus, while focusing on the entities moving to the New Administrative Capital.

The activities provided by the Academy bring the heads and staff members of the units together with local and international ICT officials and experts to build the former’s digital capacity in the areas of work of the units to maintain the sustainability of Digital Egypt operations.

Earlier this year, the Academy held a series of sessions and workshops on digital transformation technologies and carried out programs to build the digital capacity of employees at the state's administrative apparatus and government agencies moving to the New Administrative Capital.

It is worth noting that MCIT is following a comprehensive plan to provide technical support to the information systems and digital transformation  units in ministries, government agencies and governorates. The plan involves creating an operational structure for the units and organizing programs, workshops, and sessions to build the basic and specialized capacities of the units’ heads and staff members. This is in addition to carrying out activities as part of the Digital Transformation Academy and preparing a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) manual for the units.

So far, the Academy managed to train most of the heads and staff members of the state’s administrative apparatus on the knowledge, culture, and digital skills necessary to keep up with the work environment in the New Administrative Capital, delivering 43,860 certificates. The Academy, in addition, carried out a range of specialized capacity-building programs and handed over 5,423 certificates to employees.
