STC is playing a key part in training the Saudi talents of tomorrow.

The programme aims to support Saudi talent in technology and innovation, to invest and provide innovative technology solutions, and to create an environment conducive to local talent to help make Saudi Arabia a strong competitor in the world of modern technology. A key part of that is the Dathathon Traffic Management Competition, which aims to raise awareness of the importance of big data and knowledge sharing by developing participants' skills to reach professional levels. One of the most important technical competitions in the region, it simulates reality and supports the access of participants to advanced data, as well as many training programs that enable them to access the advanced technical environment in the field of data analysis and utilisation.

And a key supporter of all this: Saudi Telecom Company, better known as STC. Says Dr Tarig Enaya, senior vice president of the business unit at STC: "The Future Solutions Platform is the first of its kind in the Kingdom to support talented young people to experience and develop innovative solutions that drive them to improve their skills. We are proud to honour the sons and daughters who participated in the competition and won the first places, and we are constantly seeking to achieve a high level of creating opportunities and the spirit of competition and digital innovation through introducing such competitions."

The competition had more than 195 participants from throughout the kingdom. STC honoured the winners with cash prizes.
