Underscoring the importance of enhancing the spirit of competitiveness within a working team for achieving corporate objectives, Bin Humaidan said that Dubai eGovernment would continue to provide the necessary support to all employees to ensure that government performance is enhanced and internal operating efficiency is developed, thus positively reflecting on the quality of eServices.

During the gathering, a documentary was presented, highlighting DeG’s achievements which included organizing a series of leading activities, signing strategic partnerships with many local and federal government departments and entities and developing new applications, software systems and services that would promote digital transformation and support government integration in Dubai.
Later, Bin Humaidan and Lootah honoured 22 employees in appreciation of their successful careers that spanned a decade or more and for their valuable contribution during that period by supporting DeG’s vision. A number of other employees were honoured in appreciation of their contribution and effective role in completing the Government Service Bus (GSB) project, the eServices Migration project and the Web Single Sign-on project.
Valuing the efforts of all those who contributed to providing and developing government eServices, Bin Humaidan called on all DeG personnel to participate effectively in the process of development by continuing to work as a team, submitting suggestions and focusing on how to develop individual creativity in line with the future aspirations of the local and federal government.
