Egypt’s Information Technology Industry Development Agency (ITIDA) announced the launch of its capacity building program in cooperation with Atos Origin, an international IT service firm, to raise the global competitive advantage of 100 Egyptian IT companies.
Atos Origin will lead an international consortium composed of Hewitt Associates, Arthur D. Little, the Indian QAI as well as Community and Institutional Development (CID) to offer consulting services to the selected 100 companies.
ITIDA Executive President Dr. Hazem Abdelazim said the three-year program reflects ITIDA's commitment towards building the capacities of Egyptian IT companies.
The selection of companies, he noted, is subject to certain criteria to be announced once set by the program's management. The selection terms and conditions, Abdelazim added, will then be examined by the committee in charge of the program implementation.
The committee will include representatives of all concerned parties from the ICT community to guarantee total transparency while choosing the companies, according to ITIDA Executive President.
