The Municipality and Planning Department in Ajman launches the second phase of Sanad project, which aims to develop IT capacities in the department’s infrastructure within the scope of Ajman government that in turn seeks to provide governmental service effectively and efficiently. This will guarantee that the department is ready to provide its service around the hour in the case of crises and disasters, hence achieving the desired purpose of making a leading example out of those services.

This project is a significant step in building the infrastructural bases, as it uses the latest global technologies that guarantee the security and protection of information and networks, an advanced level of performance speed and an easy transformation process in data centers to cloud computing, IoT and IT technological services.

The two parties signed a mutual contract to implement the project, represented on behalf of the Municipality and Planning Department in Ajman by HE Abdul Rahman Mohammed Al Nuaimi, Director General of the Department, and on behalf of CDA by its General Manager Mr. Naim Abdallah Taskin, with a number of executives from both parties present.

The project also serves the requirements of the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA) to elevate the level of services provided to the public.

 

HH also said that the Municipality believes in the importance of the continuity of its services and of decreasing the effects of risks and deficiencies resulting from crises and disasters, if they occur. The Department is also working relentlessly to create quality projects that would help achieve its desired goals, that is by using the best and latest global technologies in building its data centers.

and a core for future projects that the department will implement as soon as the data centers in the department embrace the fast pace of transformation to the new technological platforms of cloud computing. This in turn will increase the flexibility of information technology capacities to support the department’s aspirations to apply the best global practices in business continuity, artificial intelligence, IoT and cloud computing, with emphasis on increasing information security and protection from breaches and the continuity and availability of services by no less than 99.9%.
