The session will be organized as a workshop with ample time for question and answers, and will cover the following:

  1. The national strategy for standards-based interoperability in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
  2. Robust step-wise approach to setting standards, policies and deploying interoperability. The first 6 use cases.
  3. Establishing standards-based interoperability specifications, testing and certification for compliance.
