FOHMICS had secured this project through a rigorous competitive bidding process, thus proving that the delivered project is not only technically advanced but economically viable too.
The software backbone of the Census 2005 project involves the use of PDAs and GPS devices for data collection, which is then synchronized with the data collection center for verification and filtration. The verified data is then again synchronized to the headquarters of both MOEP and DOPE for final analysis. This is the first time in UAE that the Census 2005 has been completely automated covering over 60 locations spread across the country.
The PDA application is based on Microsoft technology where the complete business logic and complex validation rules had been configured to ensure accurate data collection as well as an easy to use interface to enable the enumerator to learn the system quickly. The PDA application has been made available in arabic and english to cater to the masses. The data is stored in Oracle 10g Lite with secure backup also available in an SD Memory card.
The data collection center application is based on Java technology with Oracle 10g at the back-end offering a reliable storage. The assignments are planned and synchronized with the PDA to ensure that the daily activities of the enumerators are available in the PDA. After data collection the PDAs are synchronized with the DCC application which is then verified and filtered.
The application at the Headquarters is then updated with the data collected across all the centers. This enables the team at headquarters to review the entire Census information collected on the same day.
