Defining the new era of digital government
.GOV Awards show the UAE taking a leading role in creating new models of public sector ICT
Last night saw the presentation of our second .GOV Magazine awards for Dubai and the Northern Emirates, and it was a pleasure to be able to honour so many of the leading organisations and individuals from the public sector in the UAE.
We received a wide range of nominations from government departments from across the Emirates, and the range of projects and expertise that was showcased in the nominations highlights how important technology has become to the public sector in the UAE today and the progress that is being made in making the UAE a leader in the digital transformation to smart government.
I would like to express my thanks to all of those organisations who nominated themselves for helping to make this event a success and for giving us the opportunity to share their success stories – many of the project in the public sector in the UAE today are world first’s and we are very happy that so many organisations contributed to the awards and continue to contribute to .GOV magazine.
The team at .GOV Magazine is always pleased to receive feedback and to hear about new projects and achievements from government across the GCC – there are so many initiatives underway that we cannot possibly keep up with them all – so please do get in touch with me firstname.lastname@example.org if you have news or views to share on the state of public sector IT in the region today.
Sharing these success stories helps to encourage other ideas and initiatives, and to foster more collaboration and knowledge exchange among government IT professionals, both here and around the world, and we are only too happy to play our part in facilitating the exchange of ideas and highlighting the progress being made in defining the next era of smart digital government.
