The digital transformation of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Government will proceed thanks to a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed by the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Information Technology Board (KPITB) and Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS).

The MoU will give the KP Government the opportunity to learn about and practice using cloud technology to increase productivity, dependability, and security at a cheaper cost.
In accordance with the MOU, KPITB will collaborate with KP Government agencies and AWS to determine pilot workloads that potentially profit from AWS’s services and to inform the agencies about the benefits and potential of cloud computing.

They will be able to utilize the broadest and most comprehensive portfolio of services, including analytics, computing, databases, the Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning, mobile and storage services, and other cloud technologies, by having access to AWS’s industry-leading infrastructure and security capabilities.

In addition to enabling organizations to provide new citizen services more quickly and cheaply, this will inspire the KP Government to experiment with new ideas.

According to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Minister for Science, Technology, and Information Technology, Atif Khan, “Cloud services will allow the KPITB and other government departments to strengthen their current IT infrastructure and provide a sustainable long-term solution for keeping the data on a secure and reliable platform.

This MOU with AWS is a component of our bigger plan to digitally modernize Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in order to provide citizens with quicker and better services.

Simultaneously, the economy of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and all of Pakistan is moving toward digitalization, and this innovation will call for a digital workforce prepared to satisfy the expanding need for cloud computing. According to an AlphaBeta analysis, the two most in-demand digital skills by companies by 2025 will be cloud computing and cybersecurity.

AWS and KPITB will work together to design a training program to upgrade government employees’ skills and deepen their grasp of cloud technologies in order to speed up innovation within the KP Government.

Furthermore, these training programs are designed to assist government workers in gaining the knowledge and skills necessary to implement cloud technologies at scale, improve the quality of their data-driven business choices, and create new services that will lead to better outcomes for residents.

Additionally, the KP Government and AWS will look at how to teach Pakistani underemployed and unemployed people for careers in the cloud through classroom-based training through initiatives like AWS re/Start, a 12-week full-time skill development program.

Individuals can acquire the technical skills required for entry- to mid-level cloud employment through courses and practical laboratories using real-world settings. In order to help learners prepare for job interviews, AWS re/Start also offers professional skills training, such as résumé and interview coaching.

According to Dr. Ali Mahmud, Managing Director of KPITB, “This MOU corresponds with the digital policy 2018 of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Government, which seeks to use information and communication technologies (ICTs) for job creation, connection, empowerment, and inclusive economic growth.”
“Moreover, our partnership with AWS, the most complete and widely used cloud platform in the world, will give our teams the know-how and tools they need to innovate in the digital sphere and digitize citizen services.”
Mr. Eric Conrad, Worldwide Public Sector Regional Managing Director of ASEAN, AWS, who oversees AWS’s Asia Emerging Markets business, said, “We are excited to collaborate with KPITB, our first official engagement with a government agency in Pakistan, to drive transformative innovation for the country.”
