Ooredoo has recently showcased how emerging technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI) can transform Qatar’s businesses with its third technology master class ‘Exploring New Technologies’.

Ooredoo Qatar COO Yousuf Abdulla al-Kubaisi said, “We hope this master class opened the eyes of Qatar’s entrepreneurs to the technology already available to take their business or idea to the next-level.

“In the growing digital economy, Qatar’s startups must harness innovations such as the Internet of Things and artificial intelligence to unlock new digital revenue streams, free up staff to focus on more creative problem solving, and to more quickly identify and predict customer trends.”

The ‘Exploring New Technologies’ session was the latest in a series of master classes held in collaboration with Digital and Beyond, a digital incubator led by Ooredoo and the Qatar Business Incubation Centre (QBIC).

Previous master classes included topics on ‘Getting Started as a Tech Start-Up CEO’ and ‘Identifying and Attracting Partners’. The classes aim to support Qatar’s innovation ecosystem and community and foster entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship.

QBIC CEO Aysha al-Mudahka said, “Adopting emerging technologies should not be done in isolation – startups and organisations should examine how emerging technologies can solve business problems, and fit into a wider digital transformation programme. Companies will also need to train and upskill their employees, in order to optimise how emerging technologies can augment their tasks.”
