Jordan has signed an enterprise licencing agreement (ELA) with Microsoft Corp. to provide training and other resources to modernise government e-services. Jordan is the first country in the Middle East to sign a government security programme with Microsoft. The ELA falls under the framework partnership agreement signed last October, which states that Microsoft co-invest in projects jointly selected for development in Jordan's information technology sector. The ELA gives the Jordanian government a three-year software licensing extension and oversees the training of up to 1,000 government information technology personnel.
