Oracle To Collaborate With UAE’s Advanced National Research And Education Network

Oracle will collaborate with Ankabut, the UAE’s Advanced National Research and Education Network that connects academic institutions to global education networks, to develop one of the region’s top educational initiatives. During GITEX Global 2022, the two organisations agreed to a memorandum of understanding (MoU) defining their future collaboration.

By utilising Ankabut’s comprehensive portfolio of cloud apps and infrastructure, the alliance solidifies Oracle as a long-term technology solution provider and strategic technology partner. Oracle has been chosen by Ankabut as a partner in the development of the new educational ecosystem and cloud platform services. The two organisations will now collaborate to use Oracle to increase the current footprint, boosting the UAE’s position as a pioneer in educational services and quickening digital transformation in the process. Ankabut will be able to offer cutting-edge services to educators in the UAE and throughout the region thanks to the expanded Oracle cloud platform capabilities.
