The festive opening of the centre, the first of its kind in the region, was attended by a range of public officials and top executives from leading international and Saudi firms in the private sector.
During the opening, the Insights Center was celebrated as a next step in public and private collaboration to achieve the digital transformation objectives, as outlined by the Kingdom’s Vision 2030. The center will also play a key role in the development of digital talent amongst the Saudi workforce.
Dr Abdullah Al Fozan, Chairman of KPMG in Saudi Arabia commented: “Digital transformation is high on the agenda of both the public and private sectors. The government is aiming high with the ambitious Vision 2030 programme, and the involvement of the private sector is key for success. At KPMG, we are committed to be at the forefront of this digital journey."
The KPMG Insights Center in Riyadh joins a global network of 20 centers, through which the firm will be able to leverage on the latest technologies in the field of advanced visualisation and data analytics.
