ABOUT DUBAI DATA
THE ROLE OF DUBAI DATA
Smart Dubai Data is leading the world’s most ambitious and comprehensive data initiative, preparing stakeholders to share citywide data seamlessly for smart solutions powering tomorrow. Our mission is to enable the innovation and insights that spark the growth of a data economy and create happiness.
Today, we are taking a comprehensive approach to ensure Dubai benefits from data by creating a citywide data strategy, establishing the rules of participation, empowering data professionals, fuelling the city’s smart transformation, and leading a new approach in data management for cities.
We are building a city-wide model of Dubai’s data, identifying which organisations hold it, and how it can be used to build a smarter, more prosperous city. Our Dubai Data Lab engages with real-world problems solvable through data science to create economic and social benefits. We are also championing a vibrant data community comprising data champions, organisational representatives and data experts to spark collaboration.
Government entities, businesses and individuals can access a wealth of information and free datasets on Dubai Pulse, the digital backbone of Dubai. Dubai Pulse facilitates the exchange of data to enable a safe, seamless, efficient and personalised experience.
Eventually, Dubai Data wants to be an impartial market broker for citywide data, creating an open and well-regulated market where data’s true worth is realised and used to spark new opportunities.
