By: Tolga YalcinProgram Manager, Telecoms & Networking, Saudi Arabia


This IDC Market Perspective gives a comparative overview of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region's most recent digital policies and regulatory initiatives on key emerging technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, and artificial intelligence (AI). This overview is placed in the context of recent policy and regulatory developments at the global level. The report offers advice on how policymakers and national regulatory authorities can establish an enabling environment for all ecosystem players and ensure the protection of end users (consumers and businesses) while supporting digital transformation initiatives to transform countries' economies in line with national development agendas.

"ICT policies and the regulatory landscape in the GCC region are being transformed in line with global trends as we move toward digital regulation. However, traditional regulatory challenges should be addressed to support digital transformation, and affordable state-of-the-art digital infrastructure should be made available to end users." — Senior Research Manager Tolga Yalcin, IDC Middle East, Turkey, and Africa
