Departments to standardize online services on Dubai eGovernment's platform
Fourteen Dubai government departments are working closely with Dubai eGovernment to integrate their websites. The implementation of Dubai eGovernment's Content Management System (CMS) was reviewed at a meeting of the content advisory board held recently at the Dubai Radio and Television offices in Dubai.
The board evaluated the progress achieved in the wider application of the CMS systems by the various Dubai government departments with a view to standardizing content for faster access, customer-centricity and user-friendliness.
Salem Al-Shair, director eServices, Dubai eGovernment, who chaired the meeting, highlighted the need for faster adoption of the CMS among all participating departments in order to progress to the next level of eServices implementation.
"The active participation of the fourteen departments has increased Dubai eGovernment's efforts at promoting the integration of CMS for more effective content management," said Anas Haddad, Content Manager, Dubai eGovernment.
"Encouraged by the response, many other departments have displayed greater interest in the new system and we expect many more to join in the near future. The recent Content Advisory Board meeting evaluated the performance of the system and discussed how members had benefited from its adoption, because of the centralized and unified administration application."
Khawla Salem, IT Manager, Department of Information, suggested the initiative of a new, dedicated TV program on eGovernment. The proposal was welcomed and accepted by the board, which recommended further discussions. It was agreed that all Dubai government departments would be part of the proposed TV show.
The board also discussed the proposal for a regular forum to analyze new ideas, with a view to adding new features to eGovernment services. The meeting took note of the participating departments and organizations.
The Department of Health and Medical Services and the Dubai Civil Defense department have already announced the integration of their systems with Dubai eGovernment's advanced Content Management System (CMS). — (menareport.com)
