The DEC in strategic partnership with Tech Mahindra, have jointly launched “Dubai Economic Council Smart City Center” in the vision set forth by H.H Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to transform the emirate into one of the world’s premier Smart Cities.
Dubai is committed to create the vision of a 'Connected World, Connected Solutions, Connected City' and more importantly a secure city into a reality.
The establishment of the center will drive in an influx of new Proof of Concepts and solutions that can be utilized by various government departments in the efforts to shift to Smart City status. Tech Mahindra’s expertise across various technology based verticals is expected to reinforce the shift—like helping streamline services in healthcare, education, security, energy, logistics, financial services, hospitality and real estate. Additionally, Citizen Benefit Value Analysis will be a key value driver in ensuring the success of this Center; acting as a performance benchmark measured by the Steering Committee of the center itself.
