Smart Dubai, the government office selected to drive Dubai’s citywide transformation into a Smart City, has announced the Smart Dubai Platform, a digital backbone powering the city in the near future, in partnership with Strategic Partner, Du Telecom Company. The Smart Dubai Platform will be the central operating system for the city, providing access to city services and data for all individuals, private sector as well as public sector entities. The Smart Dubai Platform is a unique undertaking for any city in the world. Several leading cities have established ICT platforms, but often limited them to specific uses or a single dimension. The newly-conceived Smart Dubai Platform unites city services, IoT, cloud services, Big Data and digital identity across all city dimensions to build the most comprehensive exchange point for government and private sector services, delivering unprecedented value for the city. The Smart Dubai Platform will be developed and implemented by Du Telecom Company, in an ambitious and unique public-private partnership model that will set new benchmarks for cross-sector partnerships for smart city initiatives globally. “Our vision has consistently been to transform Dubai into the happiest city on Earth. The Smart Dubai Platform forms the of our smart city transformation.
