Dubai Digital Cloud is the latest in a series of initiatives to create a “world-leading, efficient, agile and reliable digital infrastructure” in the emirate, Dubai Government Media Office said.
Agreements were signed between Digital Dubai, Microsoft, and Moro Hub to provide flexibility and operational efficiency.
The new digital cloud strategy will provide “connectivity, integration, and a comprehensive digital government that ensures agility, speed, security, and competitiveness, allowing government entities to provide integrated, proactive, round-the-clock services,” said Hamad Al Mansoori, director general of Digital Dubai.
Moro Hub, a subsidiary of Digital DEWA, has advanced digital services that “aim to support government and private organizations in their digital transformation journeys in the UAE and the Middle East,” said Saeed Al Tayer, managing director and CEO of Dubai Electricity and Water, adding that Moro Cloud will aid in cutting costs and encouraging innovation.
Meanwhile, Microsoft expects its cloud services portfolio to add more than $39 billion and about 100,000 jobs to the UAE economy in the next four years. According to a Dubai Chamber of Digital Economy report, the national digital economy is expected to extend from $38 billion to over $140 billion by 2031.
Last year, the UAE Cabinet approved the formation of the Higher Committee for Government Digital Transformation and going forward with plans to develop a digital economy; last month, Sheikh Hamdan launched Dubai’s Digital Strategy.
