ZainTech, the ICT enterprise arm of the Zain Group, has signed a strategic agreement with UAE operator du to provide enterprises in the country with enterprise products covering IoT, cloud services and drone technology.
The partnership will allow them to pool resources, collaborate on go-to-market strategies and underpin ESG and sustainability values, the two companies said in a joint statement.
Under the agreement, ZainTech and du will provide a suite of ICT services to meet the growing needs of enterprise customers, including green IoT, application modernization, cloud infrastructure, drone-as-a-service and international connectivity, among others.
