DDE holds third workshop for partners
Younus Al Nasser addresses the DDE workshop.

Dubai Data Establishment (DDE) has hosted its third masterclass for public and private entities, to explain the Dubai Data roadmap.

The workshop, which was held at the Mohammed Bin Rashid School of Government, covered the work of DDE and the obligations of partner entities in Dubai Data Initiative, to enable them to participate in the Initiative.

DDE is responsible for oversight; building the classification framework; maintaining primary registries; monitoring compliance and enforcing policies in the Data Initiative.

Partner entities will have an obligation to prepare their entity's data for sharing, by first identifying obstacles which the Dubai Data Establishment will review and help to resolve; followed by classifying and categorising their data according to the Dubai Data Framework; and finally by developing a plan for sharing their data.

All entities will require modifying their infrastructure in order to publish and share data, and thus take all necessary actions to do so. The entity will also be responsible for reporting on data publication and sharing to the Dubai Data Establishment.

"Dubai Data is fuelling our smart city transformation. In the near future, Dubai Data will lead to improved decision-making; enhanced creativity and innovation; deeper insights; greater inclusion; higher efficiency and better safety for the whole city. In line with the vision of Smart Dubai, members of the Dubai Data Establishment are working together to increase happiness for the whole city and contributing to making Dubai the smartest city." said Younus Al Nasser, CEO of Dubai Data Establishment.
