Forty-eight Sharjah government entities are taking part in GITEX Technology Week 2017, with many of the bodies unveiling innovative digital applications and services that are key for the digital transformation in Sharjah.

Thirteen smart applications, six new and updated websites and an array of digital services will be launched at GITEX 2017, Sharjah DeG revealed on day one of the event.

The new premium services and applications are being showcased at the Sharjah Pavilion, which is themed ‘History and Communication.' Featuring a unique design inspired by the heritage of the Mleiha region, the pavilion is expected to host thousands of visitors who will explore the latest services offered by Sharjah government departments.

"Our participation at GITEX aims to promote the latest technologies that have been adopted by Sharjah's directorates and government departments. We will also be revealing the success stories and experiences of other government entities participating at the exhibition as part of our ongoing strategy to achieve sustainable development and to integrate modern technology in all aspects of life," said Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmad bin Sultan Al Qasimi, Director General of DeG.

"During the event, DeG will showcase the results of its strategy to support a unified network that connects multiple state entities. The applications, services and websites that will be unveiled at GITEX represent the remarkable efforts to enhance government integration in Sharjah and the commitment to deliver the most modern services to all its citizens and residents," he added.

Sharjah's government entities will be unveiling their new services and applications from Monday. The second day of GITEX 2017 will see Sharjah Police Headquarters and Sharjah Police Academy launch their respective new websites and Sharjah Commerce and Tourism Development Authority exhibit a digital activation that allows users to try on traditional Emirati clothes using virtual reality technology.
