Unprecedented Strong Partnership with Arabic libraries
For over thirty years Naseej has been working with all types & sizes of libraries throughout the Middle East, hand in hand, to develop their services and their ability to serve their patrons and society, during which Arabic libraries were among the first civil institutions to adopt digital transformation.
Today once again Arab libraries are the pioneers of adopting cloud technologies and managed software, which allows them to allocate their scientific and specialized human resources to better serve researchers and patrons, by freeing them from the constraints of traditional library services. All while proving the vital role of the library in managing and dissemination of knowledge and empowering students and researchers.
It’s hard for a single organization to provide programming, operational, and security capabilities that compete with those provided by cloud-managed solutions providers, thus many organizations and enterprises (even big ones) now turn to managed services
