The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has bagged the Network World Middle East Award 2014 in the Storage Project of the Year 2014 category. The Award was presented in a ceremony recently held by CPI Media Group at Emirates Towers Hotel in Dubai in the presence of business leaders and top executives of government, semi-government entities as well as private businesses from the UAE and other countries of the region.

“The RTA has emerged as a winner in this category, thanks to the implementation of the best technical practices towards the continuity of providing data storage system services as a contingency for any sort of disasters or crises, where the continuity of the storage services has touched as high as 99.7%,” noted Al Bastaki.
“The RTA is always keen on using state-of-the-art information technology to streamline the processes and e-transactions in a bid to play a pioneering role and become an international trend setter in this line of industry; which has become one of the core ingredients and contributors to the advancement & development drive, and ultimately nurturing a decent living for citizens, residents, tourists and visitors.
“The leading organizations today face multiple challenges as to how to adapt to this ever-changing world where technological advancements are in top gear; which warrants taking appropriate measures in a timely manner, particularly in an urban environment like Dubai; a city that has become a melting pot for multi-nationalities descending from all over the globe and bustling with year-round activities. Such activities are gathering pace & tempo to keep abreast of the diverse cast of events in the city representing a whole host of economic, business, service and financial sectors among others,” said Al Bastaki in a concluding remark.
