"stc’s structured approach to building a telco cloud is supporting its digital transformation goal of becoming an agile software company that is able to deliver advanced digital services."



stc is the leader in the provision of 5G services in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Bahrain, and as such, it has a deep commitment to supporting Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030. The aim of Vision 2030 is to transform Saudi Arabia into an economic and industrial powerhouse with a strong civil society. stc expects to play a key role in bringing the vision to reality as a regional digital leader that provides innovative digital services and platforms to its customers and enables the digital transformation of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.

stc is undergoing an ambitious digital transformation strategy: digitize, accelerate, reinvent, expand (dare). dare is designed to turn the operator into a data-driven, agile organisation that is able to provide market-leading customer experience and new digital services for consumer and B2B markets. stc is also building an advanced telco cloud in order to deliver futureproof digital network infrastructure to the countries in which it operates. stc wants to exploit the cost-efficiency and fast time-to-innovate of the cloud in order to rapidly deploy a digital and differentiated network that supports the aims and services linked to Vision 2030.
