Dubai Smart Government (DSG) Department has affirmed its full readiness to comply with the Smart Dubai Strategy to convert Dubai into the world’s smartest city, as announced yesterday by HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President & Prime Minister & Ruler of Dubai.
H.E. Ahmad Bin Humaidan, Director General of DSG, said: “Dubai is witnessing the start of a new, unique and unprecedented stage to enhance the quality of human life in all fields, thanks to a number of initiatives launched by our prudent leadership built on the infrastructure by our institutions and human resources to serve our citizens and residents.”
He added: “HH Sheikh Mohammed’s launch of the strategy to transform Dubai into the world’s smartest city gives us a roadmap to reach this goal with services and utilities on smartphones and the entire city designed in a smart manner to understand and serve the needs of all.”
Bin Humaidan clarified that DSG would be fully prepared to support this roadmap, thanks to its long experience in eTransformation including its advanced infrastructure, its unified and secure government information network and platforms; and its government resources planning systems used by 43 Dubai government entities, its shared services, and its leading smart phone apps; all of which are enablers to make Dubai the smartest city in the world.
Bin Humaidan pointed out that since HH Sheikh Mohammed announced the move towards smart government, DSG has already undertaken many practical steps to facilitate and expedite the smart transformation process.
DSG put a package of its shared services at the disposal of government entities to enable them to optimize them and employ them in achieving the transformation into smart government and smart city, thereby contributing to attracting visitors and businesses to Dubai, thanks to the easy potential for accessing and conducting government services including the government service bus, ePay and MyID.
MyID was developed in line with the world’s best practices to enable customers a unified access to all electronic and smart services provided by Dubai government entities via smart phones/Internet through one login, linked to the Emirates ID. With mPay, users can access most used government services and utilities on their smartphones.
DSG has already completed four out of five smart transformation policies and guidelines for government entities. Bin Humaidan emphasized that DSG is putting all its potentials and infrastructure at the disposal of government entities with the aim of making Dubai the smartest city in the world.
