Abu Dhabi Systems and Information Centre (ADSIC), the government entity in charge of Abu Dhabi’s ICT agenda, will bring together 22 Abu Dhabi government entities at GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK 2014.

Under the banner of ‘Towards a Digital Abu Dhabi’, the government organisations will display their latest apps and software offerings that make life in the emirate more convenient, safer and increasingly business-friendly for residents and citizens alike.

“It’s an honour to host so many of our fellow Abu Dhabi government entities during GITEX,” said H.E. Rashed Lahej Al Mansoori, Director General at ADSIC. “The mission of ADSIC is to integrate the offerings of multiple government entities into a single cohesive ICT strategy for the Emirate. This is perhaps the single largest display of that unified strategy to date.”

At 1591 square metres, the stand is four times the size of last year’s, when ADSIC was joined by 11 other government entities. Al Mansoori is keen to stress the importance of co-operation between departments. He highlights the recently-launched CityGuard mobile app as an example of a user-centric app that provides efficient services by leveraging integration between different e-Government platforms to provide efficient public services.
