Oman Vision 2040 includes a robust new ICT strategy which includes expanding data centre service in the country. The national vision alongside increasing industrial digitisation, the rapid growth of digital technologies, and the increasing prevalence of the internet of things make this a growth area in energy and across many other sectors.
