The Abu Dhabi Digital Authority (ADDA) has unveiled its new Abu Dhabi Data Management Program (DMP), a new data-centric open data platform and open data sharing ecosystem, during its participation at the 39th edition of GITEX Technology Week, the biggest tech show in the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia (MENASA), which runs from October 6 to October 10, 2019 at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC).
The Data Management Platform, which falls within the Open Data initiative under Abu Dhabi’s Development Accelerator program, Ghadan 21 is envisioned to help unlock the high value potential of government entities’ rich and dynamic data sets-bringing the UAE capital’s digitization agenda into full realization.
Ghadan 21 is designed to fulfil the government’s vision of a diversified knowledge based economy making Abu Dhabi one of the best places in the world to do business, invest, live, work and visit.
H.E. Dr Rauda Al-Saadi, Director General, ADDA, said, “We are proud to announce the ADD’s new Data Management Platform, which reflects the robust roadmap that we have created to help implement our Abu Dhabi Data Strategy. The roll out of the DMP initiative will fully enable the effective and efficient delivery of future government services, which in turn, will serve as a precedent for excellence from government entities wanting to build a better quality of life for Abu Dhabi citizens, residents, visitors, and investors.”
