Supervisor Message

Our country is proceeding confidently towards carrying out its ambitious 2030 Vision under the leadership of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques; King Salman bin Abdul-Aziz and HRH the Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman. In pursuit of this blessed vision, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has paid a great attention to data management as a rich source for investment and a great support to developmental aspects. Therefore, the Royal Decree establishing the National Data Management Office, and data management offices in all government entities was the beginning for the work on founding data management offices in the government institutions, and building their strategies. King Saud University was proactive in leading higher education institutions in the Kingdome by establishing the Data Management Office and building its strategy, which gave it the opportunity to be a reference and guide for Saudi universities, and to achieve the national aspirations in data management, governance, security and investment. The office looks forward to building strong partnerships and cooperation with the university's various entities and units that own databases in order to achieve the university’s strategic goals, and Vision 2030.
