Octaware Gulf bagged a prized GIS project in Qatar with the Ministry of Environment. Inspite of some heavy-weight competitors in the market Octaware managed to acquire this project based purely on its technical strength and past experience in the technology domain which helped gain the client confidence.
The project is about implementing geographic information system solutions to various departments of the Ministry of Environment. It is to be developed using ESRI software and Silverlight platform on desktop and Mobile/Tablet platforms. This project is of great importance in terms on extending the penetration in the Govt. sector. This has been one of Octaware’s biggest projects in the Govt. sector and it is noteworthy that the company has been able to garner all requirements to win this project on its own without any local external support.
Qatar is one of the handful of nations which has implemented Nation Wide GIS implementation (across the country). It is encouraging to know that there are many ministries and agencies (Private and Public) in the region that use GIS for various projects and based on its technical strength and expertise Octaware is confidently looking forward to acquiring a lot more business in the region.
