The signing ceremony was attended by the Prime Minister of the Republic of Serbia, Ana Brnabić; US Deputy Chief of Mission, Mr. John Ginkel; Director of the Office for Information Technologies and eGovernment, Mihailo Jovanović, PhD and the Mayor of Kragujevac, Nikola Dašić.
The contract was signed on behalf of the Oracle Corporation by Kenneth Johansen, VP Technology Cloud and Regional MD North East, while Danilo Savić, CEO of Data Cloud Technology, signed the contract on behalf of the State Data Center in Kragujevac.
By signing this contract, a new perspective is created in the development of the information and communication technology sector in Serbia, simultaneously positioning our country as a regional IT leader. A large investment of the Oracle Corporation in this regional center opens additional opportunities for further development. Any business in Serbia will have the opportunity to take advantage of the performance, security, and lower costs of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), supporting the scale and growth of industries including healthcare, retail, and banking.
The partnership with the Oracle Corporation, one of the world's IT leaders, is another confirmation of the Government's results in the digitalization sector, and investment in state-of-the-art data center infrastructure, human resources and technical capacities. This is also a confirmation that Serbia is a regional leader in digital transformation and a good partner for foreign investments in the field of IT and new technologies.
