Google Cloud has joined the remote working initiative that was launched by the Communications Regulatory Authority (CRA) at end of March 2020, in co-operation with key players in Qatar’s Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector, it was announced yesterday.
The CRA initiative is taking a set of measures and providing offers and packages for technology services to help people in Qatar work remotely from home easily and securely during the precautionary measures taken to limit the spread of Covid-19.
Google Cloud will support businesses in Qatar to work remotely from home easily and securely by offering them access to a select number of free services, such as free access until September 30, 2020 to Google Meet’s advanced video conferencing abilities for G Suite
G Suite is an integrated solution that includes Gmail, Calendar, and Chat. It also includes high-fidelity video conferencing with Google Meet and telephony with Google Voice, as well as powerful ways to collaborate in real time with Docs, Sheets, and Slides.
In addition, Google is offering its Google Cloud learning resources, such as their extensive catalogue of training courses, hands-on labs on ‘Qwiklabs’, and interactive webinars for free for 30 days; registration should be before April 30, 2020.
“We are pleased that Google Cloud has joined CRA’s initiative, which supports the efforts of our other partners to contribute to limit the spread of Covid-19; information and communications technology is the ideal solution to reduce face-to-face meetings and facilitate the work remotely from home during this period.
“We all co-operate to support businesses in Qatar to facilitate their work remotely and ensure that they maintain their business continuity smoothly and without interruption and to grow at the same pace. I thank all of our partners for their efforts and their cooperation during this period,” said Mohamed Ali al-Mannai, president of CRA.
Businesses in Qatar can submit their requests for these products and services by reaching out Google Cloud Head of Partners in Middle East and North Africa [email protected] or by contacting one of Google’s premier partners; their contact details are available on CRA’s website https://www.cra.gov.qa/en/Consumer/Work-from-Home.
