Meet Karim El-Siginy, Egyptian-Austrian IT savant who widely has hands on automation practices

CAIRO – 11 November 2017: Sharm el-Sheikh is safe and the World Youth Forum serves as a great platform to brainstorm potential opportunities to do a lot of work, Egyptian-Austrian IT consultant Karim El-Siginy told Egypt Today on Thursday.
Siginy currently works at business management consultancy Accenture, and he participated in the Egypt-sponsored World Youth Forum that recently took place in Sharm el-Sheikh under the auspices of President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi.
Siginy holds a bachelor’s degree in computer science and engineering from the German University in Cairo. He enjoys roughly eight years of experience in IT transformation, digitization, e-government and program management. He is currently working on his master’s in business administration at the Vienna Business School of Economics, Technical University of Vienna.
“The forum represented a great opportunity for me to get introduced to several in-the-field experienced people,” Siginy said, adding that the current government is eager to transform the whole governmental paper-based process into an automated process, as highlighted from his meeting with Immigration Minister Nabila Makram on the sidelines of the WYF.
Egypt’s first international youth event brought together 3,000 youth represented by 60 delegations from around the world in order to discuss means of common interest.
It is also important to educate people working in the state organizations how the technology works, Segini further said, highlighting that the government is fully aware that it is about time to implement automation within every nook and cranny of the state.
He also recounted his experience with having family allowances in Austria automated.
In summary, Karim El-Siginy shared interesting personal views on e-Government gathered from previous experience that could benefit the country.
