Dubai eGovernment has announced the launch of its mobile portal that will allow users to access information and carry out transactions instantly via handheld mobile devices such as mobile phones and PDAs. Dubai eGovernment claims it is the first authority in the Middle East to launch such a portal. Users who want to utilise the portal can log on to the Dubai eGovernment site, www.dubai.ae, which allows mobile device users browsing these services to access the specifically designed mobile portal. Users who log on to the portal via computer have access only to the main Dubai eGovernment portal. “The launch of a mobile portal was imperative considering the increase in mobile penetration in Dubai and more importantly taking into account the increase in the number of people who are constantly on the move and dependent on their mobile phones for accessing information,” says Salem Al Shair, eServices director, Dubai eGovernment. “We are now focusing on utilising innovative channels in eServices provisioning and have adopted a multi-channel approach in an integrated manner.” The mobile portal is the result of public private partnerships that Dubai eGovernment has established to provide a range of electronic services. The services that can be accessed via the portal have been divided into six categories: Traffic, Islamic, Financial, Travel booking, Dubai Information, and Entertainment. Partners in the initiative include Emirates Airline, Dubai Financial Market and Cyber Gear.
