Business Software Alliance, the international non-governmental organisation (NGO) has announced the early success of its initiatives to raise the level of eLiteracy in the UAE, with its first phase aimed at educating the UAE’s judges. The course, organised in association with the local branch of IT training house New Horizons, was found to provide credible and measurable improvements to the workflow of the Emirate’s judicial peers. “The adoption of IT into the daily workflow of the judiciary has contributed to improving access to information for the judges and other officiating judicial officers. Information about past judicial precedents, past judgements and old records pertaining is just a click away,” says Ibrahim Bu Malha, attorney general, Dubai Government. “This has contributed to increased efficiency and speeding up the dispensation of justice. BSA’s contribution to this cause is praiseworthy. We expect that the dedication with which BSA has carried out the fight for IPR protection will spread to its campaign for raising IT awareness in the various segments of UAE society,” he adds. Jawad Al Redha, co-chairman, BSA Middle East says the scheme was created in order to give back something to the community that had supported its fight against software piracy. “When the idea was initially discussed, we were encouraged by the level of enthusiasm displayed by all our associates. This initiative has the patronage of Ibrahim Bu Malha, and Dr Mohamed. On the other hand, we are fortunate to have the expertise of one of the best global institutes of IT training, New Horizons, in the implementation of this new project,” Al Redha comments.
