Injazat inks ADFCA support services deal
Abu Dhabi, June 30, 2012
Injazat Data Systems has signed a two-year IT support services contract with the Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority (ADFCA) to ensure that the authority’s IT operations meet its mandate of developing a safe agriculture and food sector for the emirate.
Injazat is an industry-recognized market leader in the region for Information Technology, Data Center and Managed Services.
Under the terms of the agreement, it will provide ADFCA with co-location, internet hosting, enterprise server management and storage area network storage services via the Injazat Premier Data Center, one of the Middle East’s first Tier IV design-certified data center.
The other key IT managed services to be implemented by Injazat for the authority include a service desk, workplace field support and various application services.
The deal reflects Injazat’s strong commitment to strategically supporting major government agencies in the fulfillment of Abu Dhabi’s ambitious Vision 2030 economic development plans, said the company in a statement.
As one of 12 growth sectors specifically targeted under the Vision 2030 framework, health services is a field where Injazat intends to focus its IT expertise on further, it added.
'Our agreement with ADFCA is a landmark achievement in our efforts to channel our industry leadership to advance Abu Dhabi’s development agenda over the next two decades,' said Antonio Antonuccio, the chief operating officer of Injazat Data Systems.
'We assure ADFCA of consistently high levels of service and quality befitting our status as one of the UAE’s top managed IT providers,' he stated.
“Technology is a vital cog in ensuring that our services are delivered efficiently, effectively and securely. Through Injazat’s technical assistance we are confident that we will be able to enhance our technology-enabled ability to develop and implement cohesive and effective policies and regulations, uphold high quality standards, and promote broader research and awareness,” remarked Omar Al Neaimi, the ADFCA director (IT division).
