HOW IMPORTANT IS HAVING AN IT STRATEGY FOR A BUSINESS?
There is one constant in the IT business and that is change! So how would a business - regardless of size - get a grip on how to enact an effective IT strategy that would ensure business success?
To explore this and other issues, our club invited Abdulkarim Abu Jaber, Managing Director of Primus Bahrain to discuss this topic and share some of his experience to start the attendees on the right path of creating or strengthening their company's ICT strategies. Some of the topics to be discussed include:
* General IT industry Trends
* IT in business and personal life
* How IT can help organization grow and reduce cost
* Adoption of new IT trends
* How in the current economic downturn technology can drive innovation, as people and enterprises need new technologies and new products
* How can IT and technologies provide companies with a competitive advantage
* How running a business and overseeing IT is a tough task in the best of times. But in today’s environment—with consumer and business spending shrinking, budgets declining, the stock market sinking, and the pressure to adopt new tools and technologies growing—many organizations are finding themselves stretched to the limit.
* Software as a Service

When a young person's whole future depends on a certificate, should you care if it's recognised?
I'm sure that you care about your children's education and that too of the other youths in your society. Raring to "grow up" and get on with their lives. How harrowing is it then if at the cusp of their career they find that their toil for a number of years in a university has been worthless as its certification is deemed to be sub-standard and unrecognised?
This refrain has unfortunately become very familiar in Bahrain, with the snow-ball starting with Kuwait refusing to recognise some Bahraini "universities", a fact confirmed by the QAAET. Some universities have made serious attempts at correcting their situations of course, but still, a number of young graduates are between the proverbial rock and a hard place and staring into what seams to them to be a bleak future.
On 1st of March 2009 at our regular weekly meeting we welcomed Dr. Muna Al Balooshi – Assistant Secretary General for Accreditation and Evaluation who talked to us about this subject and answered some of our questions.
