Abu Dhabi Statistics Centre is exhibiting for the third year at GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK.

The sole data provider for the Abu Dhabi Government, the Abu Dhabi Statistics Centre (SCAD) has recently established a new section called the “Data Visualisation centre”. A new initiative, the second of its kind in the world and the first of its kind in the region, the new section changes all figures into suitable images and infographics.

Mohamed Ali Bin Futais Al Marri, Director, Dissemination Department, Abu Dhabi Statistics Centre, says about participating in GITEX:  “For us it is a rich platform where we can meet with others and exchange our experiences. It gives us a space where we can show our experiences and development using the technologies in our core business. GITEX allows us to learn from others; it is an experience exchange. It gives us direct access to the latest technology by meeting the technology builders, seeing where they have reached and what is in their road map. We get to see how we could be aligned with them and how they could be aligned with us.
