Biography

  • An extensive and diversified experience for over 29 years in the fields of Education Management, Information Systems and Information Technology and Communication (IS&IT), comprising Information Strategy Planning (ISP), Project Management, Analysis, Design, Development, and Implementation of Information Systems, Computer Based Information Systems (CBIS), Project Management, Information Technology Consultancy, Information Services, and Information Systems Integration.

    Expertise applied in diversified business areas such as governmental entities including but not limited to: Leagues of Arab States, Ministry of Industry, Ministry of Trade, Ministry of Investment, Ministry of International Cooperation, Parliament, Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Defense, Ministry of Youth, Ministry of Justice, Ministry of High Education, and Ministry of Education, Banks, large scale Manufacturers, Education, Security, Health, and more.

    Has been comprehensively involved in the information strategy planning, consultancy, project management, analysis, design, development and implementation of CBIS Systems, document storage/retrieval systems based on imaging technology, Full Text based Systems, process control, Geographical Information Systems (GIS) Arabization, and CAD/CAM. The succeeding development environments were fully utilized in these projects: UNIX/COBOL, VMS/RDB, NT/ORACLE, ORACLE Designer 2000, Microsoft SQL Server, PORTAL Technologies and so forth. In addition to the simultaneous management of various work groups implementing several CBIS projects.

    Moreover, practice involved the succeeding activities since 1987: Information technology consultancies, large-scale projects’ feasibility studies, and development of existing information systems, construction of various requests for proposals (RFPs) for integrated CBIS solutions (hardware, communication, basic software and applications), bids & proposals evaluations, and provision of specialized consultancy services for several large organizations.

    Currently active as the Vice President for the Arabic Academy for Science, Technology and Maritime Transport for Postgraduate and Research affairs.
