Abu Dhabi Digital Authority launches the “Abu Dhabi Connect” Project
06 Apr 2020
The Abu Dhabi Digital Authority (ADDA), the government entity that leads the digital transformation in Abu Dhabi, has launched its “Abu Dhabi Connect” project under the umbrella of the Abu Dhabi Government Services ecosystem, TAMM, through which more than 50 hard-copy documents have now been transformed and integrated with the services of 24 government entities.
The launch of this first-of-its-kind project in the region is part of a broad approach by the Abu Dhabi Government to provide distinguished services and experiences to enhance customers’ experiences by improving and facilitating services and procedures.
Aligned with the Abu Dhabi Plan and Vision 2030, “Abu Dhabi Connect” ushers in a new era in digital sustainability by streamlining data-driven systems and processes throughout the government. The key objective achieved in this technological advancement is in building the foundations for a future of seamless service delivery to all users of the data, both within government and for citizens and residents of Abu Dhabi.
The project brings a higher level of added value to the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, as it saves more than AED 714 million for customers, 737,000 working hours for government entities, and around 31 million archived documents annually.
The accomplishment of the “Abu Dhabi Connect” project culminated in the successful digital transformation of 28 documents and their integration with the services of 19 government entities, thereby simplifying the procedures of more than 500 government services that provide more than 5 million transactions annually.
The “Abu Dhabi Connect” project is aimed at establishing a comprehensive work system to enable governmental entities in Abu Dhabi to digitally exchange government documents of individuals and companies through safe and secure channels by transforming these paper documents into digital data, making it the first-of-its-kind project in the region.
This follows the announcement last week from Dubai and Sharjah.
