Aruba accelerates pace of Digital Transformation at GEMS Education

Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, has reinforced its long-standing commitment to providing GEMS Education with the latest cutting-edge networking technologies that will serve as a foundation for innovation and help the institution redefine the future of education.

GEMS Education is one of the oldest and largest kindergarten to Grade 12 and Year 13 private education providers in the world. Throughout more than six decades in education, the Group has been led by one mission: to put quality education within the reach of every learner. Right from inception, it has recognised the opportunities that the right use of technology affords and over the years has consistently invested in digital solutions and platforms to enhance teaching and learning.

GEMS Education is a technology leader in its field, setting new benchmarks and redefining the future of education. One technology partner that has a long history of collaboration with GEMS and has been a big part of its Digital Transformation journey has been Aruba.

Jacob Chacko, Regional Director for Middle East, Saudi and South Africa at Aruba, said: “Our association with GEMS goes back over a decade. We consider it a huge honour and achievement to be associated with the world’s largest provider of K-12 education. Over the years, we have been involved in creating a robust unified networking infrastructure through Aruba’s wireless and secure access management technologies coupled with HPE’s switches, enabling the Group to transition to a more technology-enriched and secure environment.

“I can’t thank GEMS Education enough for giving us the opportunity to be a part of their Digital Transformation journey and we reiterate our commitment to continue to support them as their plans for digitalisation further evolves.”

Shabeer Mohammed, Chief Information Officer at GEMS Education, added: “HPE Aruba is a powerhouse when it comes to cloud-centric networking. As a close partner with the vendor, GEMS Education has access to the latest state-of-the-art technologies that ensure that our students and faculty have anywhere, anytime and seamless connectivity that is reliable and secure.”

“With the Aruba networking infrastructure in place, we have the confidence to move ahead with a number of innovative technology initiatives that rely on the strong foundation that the vendor provides. They have excelled in always providing the right technologies to us on time, proving again and again that they are the right vendor of choice for GEMS Education. Digital Transformation is an ongoing exercise, and we appreciate the vendor’s commitment to supporting our future plans.”
