Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 is a long-term blueprint that sets out transformational strategies for developing “an ambitious nation, a thriving economy and a vibrant society”.
The ICT sector has been one of the major enablers of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030. Across industries - be it the national data management platform, the national identity and access management platform, the digitization of citizen accounts program or the human capital development portals – digital technologies continue to play a key enabling role in the Vision Realization Programs (VRPs) to help make the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 a reality. In this context, digital transformation is a continuous process in the Kingdom by which public and private sector entities adapt to or drive disruptive changes.
