Bin Humaidan pointed out that DSG has a sophisticated infrastructure and shared service systems that all government departments and authorities can benefit from; underlining that signing this agreement will open new prospects for future cooperation with DMI for using more of the shared services that DSG provides. He stressed DSG’s commitment to harness all its potentials to support the government corporate development strategies with a view to providing an infrastructure that would support transformation to smart government and contribute effectively to Dubai becoming a smart city.

Such electronic and smart services also includes GIN and the electronic service bus, our electronic infrastructure which connects 50 high-speed points of contact with government entities for the smooth and secure transfer of information in smart city Dubai. Our support underscores our commitment to provide sophisticated channels with the aim of consolidating the shift to smart government where DMI plays a key role in ensuring continuous provision of its services to society via smart and innovative channels.”

The MoU also underlines the importance of continuous co-operation and communication among the various government entities in Dubai in line with the directives of His Highness Sheikh Maktoum Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and Chairman of DMI, for supporting and encouraging innovation and creative partnerships and taking part in all activities.”

These projects are aimed at implementing all the phases and making all the necessary steps before the end of 2014, enabling all DMI’s internal services to become smart for the purpose of consolidating customer satisfaction and adopting the world’s best practices as per the highest quality and excellence criteria, by relying on the latest innovations, scientific studies and implementing the best technological practices and apps.
