Dubai Municipality selects latest version of Microsoft Exchange for messaging platform
Dubai Municipality, one of the largest government departments in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), has selected Microsoft and HP to deploy the latest version of Microsoft's Exchange messaging platform, Exchange 2000.
The scalability and new features present in Exchange drove the Municipality to choose the platform, in addition to its ability to integrate with its chosen operating system, Windows 2000. The department has been using Exchange as its messaging platform since 1993.
HP is Microsoft's Worldwide Prime Integrator for development, enhancement and deployment of Windows 2000 and Exchange 2000 worldwide. HP has earned this title through its ability to reduce risk, be a single point of accountability and provide comprehensive lifecycle services with such projects. HP was the first, and is still the only, systems integrator to attain this level of certification from Microsoft.
Dubai Municipality is regarded as one of the largest establishments in Dubai in terms of the number of people it employs, the volume of services it provides to the public and the projects it carries out. Dubai Municipality is the major driving force behind the development process of the Dubai City as a whole. The Municipality was established in 1940s with a total staff strength of three persons who were operating from a single room. However, it was in 1965 that Dubai Municipality came into being officially. The Municipality kept up its steady growth since its inception and has now become a large organization with more than 10,000 staff working in over 20 departments. In short, the municipality's growth reflects the growth of the Dubai City in general. — (menareport.com)
