“DEWA and its subsidiary Moro Hub work in line with the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, who has mandated the Dubai Government organizations to implement services 10 years ahead of other cities around the world through government innovation through Dubai 10X initiative,” said Al Tayer.

“Our collaboration with Dell Technologies will enable MORO to introduce innovative applications and accelerate the delivery of digital services out of Dubai, which supports the UAE’s vision to become a vibrant regional hub that can serve the region and the world through its advanced facilities and infrastructure,” he added.

Dell thanked Al Tayer for the fruitful discussions and noted that Dell Technologies will work closely with Moro Hub to strengthen cooperation and partnership supporting the digital transformation plans of Dubai and the UAE, especially in key sectors such as healthcare, education, and IT security to leverage strong capabilities and ecosystem.
The two organisation collaborate in many areas, such as the development of cloud computing, e-security, automated learning (Artificial Intelligence), big data and analytics, storage, backup and archiving services, as well as providing technical infrastructure for the public and private sectors and service providers.
