Smart Dubai Government signs MoU with Emaratech
The aim of the MoU is to strengthen the cooperation and partnership between the public sector and companies
Smart Dubai Government Establishment (SDG) and IT and software company Emaratech have jointly signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to further develop solutions and software that are integral to meeting Dubai Government's goals and aspirations towards electronic and smart transformation.
The aim of the MoU is to strengthen the cooperation and partnership between the public sector and companies, in order to drive Dubai's Smart City transformation. The agreement is expected to add safer electronic payment methods to Emaratech's Noqodi payment gateway, which will attract investments that will be later developed in line with SDG's requirements.
His Excellency (H.E.) Wesam Al Abbas Lootah, CEO, SDG, said: "The agreement that we have signed with Emaratech falls in line with our strategy to develop strategic partnerships and cooperation with both private and public entities for the optimal use of modern and innovative technology, which pushes the wheels of smart transformation forward.
"We will provide Emaratech with the necessary information and support needed to conduct a feasibility study, which not only reinforces our partnership and connects the Noqodi payment gateway with MyID."
H.E. Thani Alzaffin, director general and board member of Emaratech Group, added: Emaratech has a long history of harnessing technology to serve strategic partners in providing the best technological practices. Our agreement with SDG comes as part of the Group's strategy to support SDG's programs and projects for making customers happy."
