In line with Bahrain’s ambitious Economic Vision 2030, the country’s organizations are well on their path of digital transform, said business cloud software firm Infor.

In a recently held event on Enterprise Asset Management (EAM), Infor highlighted how enterprises in the Gulf nation are keen to harness digital transformation as country leads GCC for ICT (Information and Communications Technology) readiness.

“Industrial digitization continues to upend the traditional monolithic approach to enterprise software in Bahrain and asset management is no exception. Organisations across all sectors are increasingly seeking to streamline the way they track and manage assets to improve their operations, raise customer experience and boost the bottom line,” the company said in a statement.
