    The project started in December 2006; the first phase was launched in October 2007. The project is based on daily updating the portal news by a team of journalists. The portal is hosted and technically managed 24/7 by a technical support team at MCIT.

    Goals:

    § Preserve the Arabic heritage for future generations
    § Enrich the Arabic content on the internet, compared with other languages
    § Encourage the Arabic e-content industry export
    § Compete in the IT international market
    § Develop digital transformation industry

    Achievements:

    The second phase of the project “developing and updating the portal” introduced new equipment like blade servers to implement this phase. The number of visits reached around 1.200. 000 weekly.

    The first phase of development included the change and improvement of the portal’s design, adding a video feature for the news and improving screens used by editors to upload news. The second phase included the addition of interactive services to the portal including direct interviews with officials and more new services like RSS.

    The third phase included hosting a backup version of the portal at the hosting center different from the hosting center at MCIT, which works on accommodating the increasing demand of the portal when needed. This is in addition to delivering source codes of the portal to the News section and training programmers at the news section on using those codes and developing them.
