Qatar is among the world-leading countries regarding openness to new technology adoption, innovation, and system automation. The Intetics team recently participated in Qatar STEM Education Summit, held by the International Business and Economic Forum.
Sergey Kizyan, Intetics Delivery Director, and Filip Koscuk, Software Business Consultant, share insights after two days of fruitful knowledge and expertise exchange with owners of local schools, universities, & business representatives, gathered to boost Qatar’s educational industry digital transformation.
Why Qatar is an Attractive Hub for IT & EdTech Businesses? Insights from the Intetics Team
The future belongs to countries that harness digital technologies for economic development and shift into knowledge-based economies. Qatar has made significant progress in transforming its energy-based economy into a well-diversified society to achieve this goal.
In the last few years, the country has stepped up in updating, building, and integrating its ICT infrastructure and capabilities for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. New hotels, stadiums, roads, and airports have been constructed for that purpose, including — for the first time — public transportation. Someone could think: is it about time? But the matter of fact is that in Qatar, everyone owns and drives a car, as the government heavily subsidizes fuel prices. Considering recent bank problems in the EU and US, the Qatar financial system, backed up with oil and government money, is as stable as ever.
The ICT sector, currently estimated at $4.4 billion, is listed as a priority sector in the national agenda, and is expected to increase, building a rich environment for U.S. businesses of all kinds to enter the national ICT sector.
Qatar government welcomes the following vital steps to country’s transition toward a knowledge-based economy:
- supporting educational institutions’ partnership with local and global tech companies.
- encouraging local and international tech startups and entrepreneurs to deliver IT solutions to challenges in the Education sector.
The Qatar STEM Education Summit, held on 14-15th March 2023 in Doha, was the place for inspiring collaboration between scientific community, universities, and private companies. Discover innovative EdTech solutions presented by the Intetics team to local private and public organizations.
EdTech Solutions for Qatar Educational Sector Digital Transformation
Sergey and Filip shared experience with summit participants acquired after implementing dozens of EdTech projects for our clients in Germany, South Africa, United States, the UK, etc. Explore some hot EdTech solutions discussed:
AI-Powered Data Analytics in Educational Apps
One of the major drawbacks of many educational applications and systems is the lack of a powerful analytical engine. While most educational platforms offer a plethora of features, they often need to provide detailed and relevant insights, allowing to monitor and evaluate the progress of app users, identify areas of weakness, and provide reliable data for decision-making.
Therefore, product companies should prioritize the integration of a robust analytical engine in educational technologies to enhance their efficacy and impact. Knowing EdTech businesses’ most critical pain points, we know precisely how to develop and integrate an efficient analytical engine in the education app.

All-in-One Learning Management Systems Development
Omnichannel eLearning platforms can provide a centralized platform for educators to create and manage course content, assignments, assessments, and grades. These systems can also provide tools for communication and collaboration between students and educators. When such systems perfectly match both business and users’ needs, the results are impressive: after learning system redevelopment, one of our clients, a leading global educational publisher, increased the number of activations in their two most popular educational technology products. Moreover, with complete access to learning analytics, the client has boosted platform engagement by 77%.
With the widespread use of smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices, educational institutions can use mobile learning apps to provide on-the-go learning opportunities. Educational mobile apps allow learners to access educational materials anywhere, anytime. Mobile learning makes it easy for learners to fit education into their busy schedules with the learn on-the-go approach.
With functional iOS and Android apps, in just 10 months, the leading German educational platform gained an interactive web environment that brought together students, businesses, schools, and parents.
Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR/AR)
VR and AR can provide immersive learning experiences that can help students understand complex concepts. These technologies can be used in subjects like science, history, and geography to provide virtual field trips or simulations.

Summing up, IT solutions integrated into the education process allow learners to pursue education regardless of geographical or financial barriers. By streamlining administrative tasks for educators, technologies allow for more time and resources to be invested in student support, ultimately benefiting learners on a global scale. Additionally, modern technologies facilitate personalized, more efficient learning experiences, which can improve engagement and motivation, leading to a more effective and efficient educational system.
