Awqaf, Huawei announce upgrade project completion at GITEX
General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowments touts success of e-service initiative
The General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowments (Awqaf) has completed an upgrade project in partnership with Huawei. The project will help to consolidate Awqaf’s systems across the UAE and provide the public with faster, easier access to its e-services, content and smart services.
Mariam Al Braiki, Awqaf IT Director, says: “In partnering with organisations across the UAE to enhance religious awareness and help Awqaf carry out its role as efficiently as possible, we recognise the essential value of modern information and communication infrastructure to enable greater levels of transparency for citizens in the UAE to see how, as a government entity, we can improve their lives.
“We aim to enable their lives with services that make it easier for them to conduct their daily activities.
“Huawei’s strengths in providing end-to-end IT solutions have helped to ensure that the network upgrades were completed both successfully and in a way that would facilitate our mission to provide improved public e-services and smart services,” Al Braiki adds.
Sufian Dweik, Vice President, Huawei, Enterprise Business, UAE adds: “Technological progress is revolutionising how we work and learn, with new information and communication tech enabling organisations like Awqaf to connect with the public in a way that is much faster and more effective.”
