Also known as the Abu Dhabi Data Enablement Program, the Abu Dhabi Data program focuses on all facets of data management, including developing data capabilities and skillsets, activating and establishing data foundations across government sectors, developing a cutting-edge next-generation infrastructure that can support the program’s vision, deploying the necessary regulatory data toolkits, developing sectoral executive dashboards to be utilized by the top tier of the government, and implementing impactful data management practices.
“Data has become the core engine for growth and a strategic asset around the world fuelling policy making, strategic insights, innovation, and AI across nations. Abu Dhabi Data program will ensure that Abu Dhabi is a Data and AI-Powered Emirate that harnesses data for the well-being of its residents and visitors, economic growth, and innovation across the different aspects of life,” H.E Ali Rashid Al Ketbi, Chairman of the Department of Government Support- Abu Dhabi (DGS) said at the event.
