Dubai Municipality today announced a partnership with Dell Technologies to incorporate disruptive innovation and future technologies as part of its ‘Smart Transformation’ strategy. This collaboration is a step towards amplifying the benefits of digital transformation initiatives that Dubai Municipality is implementing with the aim of delivering advanced services and solutions with speed and efficiency and is in line with the Government of Dubai’s ambition to become a digital ready city of the future.

Believing ICT to be a core building block to help achieve this vision, Dubai Municipality took the first step towards its transformation journey by modernizing its existing technology infrastructure by implementing advanced software-defined solutions and building the foundation to support a private cloud environment. Powered by the VMWare cloud foundation on Dell Systems, the Municipality’s new private cloud platform is a future-proof architecture that offers high performance, modular computing, storage and networking infrastructure with an end-to-end automation that is required to drive the modern enterprise.

Faced with the challenges of rapidly increasing workload, streamlining administrative and IT processes as well as the requirement to manage, store and protect data, Dubai Municipality was looking to create a modern, future-ready environment that education institutions need to stay ahead of the curve. The digital agenda of the entity involved modernization of IT infrastructure and enhanced proactive security frameworks to deliver greater business agility and a more flexible, programmable approach to managing data services. By moving from a traditional IT environment, Dubai Municipality will be able to initiate projects faster, capitalize quickly on new capabilities and revenue opportunities with the introduction of a range of smart cloud-based services and respond nimbly to customer requirements.
