The Digital Transformation Assessment (DTA) sessions by the Ministry of Transportation and Communication (MoTC) are continuing to support Small and Medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Qatar to meet the right service providers.
“MoTC is continuing online DTA sessions to accelerate the digital transformation journey of SMEs,” a tweet by MoTC said.
Yesterday’s session focused on ‘key payment trends – post-pandemic,’ the ministry said, giving details on its official website.
Today’s session will discuss the topic ‘social commerce in Qatar’ and it is aimed at creating awareness in social commerce segments, those sell items using Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram along with other social media platforms.
“This session will enable that segment to upscale their business by automating existing processes and become a part of Qatar National vision 2030,” the MoTC said.
The session on September 29 will be on ‘SD-WAN: Why, What and How.’ The aim is to demystify SD-WAN, the next-generation Wide Area Network (WAN) leveraging software-defined (SD) principles. It starts by describing the driving factors around the evolution of the enterprise IT landscape, which are pushing the limits of traditional WAN networks.
On September 30, the session on ‘SAP B1 (ERP for SME) best run on Azure’ is aimed at enabling small and business houses to go for SAP ERP solution on Azure. “This would give more value in cloud transformation journeys from different on-premises workloads to get the fast ROI,” the ministry website said.
DTA is held annually to assess progress and adherence to the relevant digital government guidelines for each government entity.  
This assessment will result in a digital transformation annual report for review by the Steering Committee and submission to the Council of Ministers.
The DTA questionnaire assesses four dimensions of digital transformation using a range of measures. The digital transformation of SMEs Programme focuses on web presence, e-commerce and cloud services.
The first Digital Transformation Assessment was held in May 2015.
