MOTC, Microsoft Team Up to Develop Remote Work

The Qatar Government has announced its partnership with Microsoft to implement modern workplace solutions such as Microsoft Teams to enhance productivity by empowering its workforce to work remotely. The move will foster communication and collaboration amongst government entities to ensure uninterrupted delivery of services to businesses and citizens.

On that note, Mashael Ali Al Hammadi, acting assistant undersecretary of Information Technology Affairs at the Ministry of Transport and Communications (MOTC), said, “The Qatar National Vision 2030 defines our strategy to pursue economic, social, environmental and human development while ensuring the wellbeing of our workforce, citizens and residents. Digital Transformation has been the cornerstone of this journey, which drives our passion to bring the best of technology in place to achieve our goals”.

She added that platforms such as Microsoft Teams are an ideal tool for us to bring our people and processes together and help us ensure continuity in communication and workflow amongst our workforce in a secured environment. And this is evident, in light of the recent decision to reduce the number of employees present at government workplaces to 20%. The precautionary measures are taken to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) and ensure the health and safety of citizens and residents in the country.
