Bahrain's Information & eGovernment Authority (iGA) has implemented the 'Cloud First' policy, enabling system migration systems to the cloud following the best practices, while adhering to iGA's security standards and procedures. Bahrain was selected by Amazon to become the first regional centre for data in the Middle East and Africa regions. With such an announcement, the country is considered to have made another international accomplishment.
Mohamed Ali AlQaed, chief executive of iGA, said the 'Cloud First' policy is part of the National Strategic Plan and Government Work Plan, which allow ministries to provide more services to the public at lower IT operation costs. He said that so far, four integrated government systems have been transferred, those of the iGA, Ministry of Education, Bahrain Institute of Public Administration (BIPA), and Ministry of Justice & Islamic Affairs.
