eHosting DataFort, a member of TECOM Investments, has signed a memorandum of understanding with Dubai eGovernment to promote e-services and create a paperless, electronic environment in the United Arab Emirates.
Under the terms of the memorandum of understanding (MoU), eHosting DataFort (EHDF) and Dubai eGovernment (DEG) will work together to provide services to corporate customers from several sectors in the Middle East.
EHDF has already worked to manage and operate the Dubai eGovernment portal infrastructure, deploying second generation platforms such as services infrastructure, services technology and backup, creating the foundation to expand its services to non-government sectors throughout the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Apart from electronic payment solutions through credit and debit cards, mobile phone, and other avenues, the services offered through the agreement will also address business continuity and disaster recovery; strategy and design consultancy for government portals, while offering platform as a service for virtualization, storage, and networking, and software as a service for creating web portals and identity management.
Mohamed Fouz, CEO of EHDF, said: The initiative is based on the collective knowledge of DEG on e-transformation and EHDF’s expertise, as the Middle East’s leading IT managed service provider, on managed services and operational outsourcing. Our partnership will provide government and non-government entities, businesses and individuals with a secure and user-friendly platform for operating their business and conducting daily transactions more efficiently and conveniently.
