Moro Hub, SAP partner to enhance intelligent automation at government and private organisations

DUBAI, 4th February, 2022 (WAM) — In line with the efforts of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) to promote the position of Dubai as a global hub for digital technologies, Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA, has announced a partnership between Moro Hub (Data Hub Integrated Solutions), a subsidiary of Digital DEWA, the digital arm of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority and SAP.

The initiative will allow government and private entities to unlock new efficiencies with intelligent automation across their mission-critical processes, that will be hosted from state-of-the-art Moro Hub’s data centres, complying with data residency and cyber security requirements of the UAE. The offering will be based on converting clients’ capital expenditures (CAPEX) to predictive operating expenditure (OPEX), primarily aimed to reduce the total cost of ownership and allowing the businesses to focus on their core operations, and the estimated savings will be 20 to 30 percent for customers.

The announcement was made during ‘Shaping the Future with Digital Innovation’ Forum, which DEWA organised in partnership with SAP at Expo 2020 Dubai. It was attended by Christian Klein, Chief Executive Officer and member of the Executive Board of SAP SE, and Saif Humaid AlFalasi, Group CEO, ENOC, and other representation from Dubai Government entities from Roads and Transport Authority, Dubai Digital Authority, Dubai Health Authority, and many others.

"At DEWA, we are guided by the vision and directives of the wise leadership of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan; His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai; and His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, to make the UAE one of the world’s best countries in innovation," said Al Tayer.

Al Tayer noted that the UAE occupies an advanced position in the Global Innovation Index and adopts the latest innovative technological solutions in all key areas.

Al Tayer explained that the strategic partnership between DEWA and SAP started in 2009 when DEWA implemented SAP Wave 1 for Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system to measure, integrate, and automate all DEWA’s processes to provide the highest level of service to its customers, employees and partners. The relations later extended to Moro Hub. Since 2018, Moro Hub became the Authorised Cloud provider for SAP HEC. This year Moro Hub has been certified by SAP as RISE partner – the first local provider to be certified in UAE – to offer in-country cloud-based, highly secure SAP services. SAP also supported our largest solar-powered Uptime TIER III-Certified Data Centre in the Middle East and Africa at the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park in Dubai.

"DEWA is helping to shape the future of the UAE over the next 50 years to become the world’s leading nation by its Centennial in 2071. Through Digital DEWA, we are redefining the concept of a utility and contributing to creating a new digital future for Dubai. This is achieved through four pillars. The First Pillar is Solar power. This includes launching advanced solar power technologies in Dubai. The Second Pillar is Energy Storage. This is where we are deploying a renewable energy grid with innovative energy storage technologies. The Third Pillar is Artificial Intelligence (AI). We will develop AI to make Dubai the first city to provide AI-based electricity and water services. The Final Pillar is Digital Services. This pillar expands our use of digital services through three subsidiary companies of our Moro Hub, InfraX, and DigitalX. Dubai, which started its digital transformation journey 20 years ago, steadily continues its innovation journey to become the smartest and happiest city in the world," Al Tayer added.

Dubai Police warns against Leaving Children Unattended in Vehicles

36 children have been rescued since January 2022

 The Dubai Police General Command has issued an advisory to parents and motorists on the deadly consequences of leaving children unattended inside vehicles, especially during hot weather, when temperatures can reach 70°C in parked vehicles.

The Land Rescue Teams at the General Department of Transport and Rescue confirmed that since the beginning of the current year (2022), 36 children had been rescued from locked vehicles which had posed a severe threat to their lives.

The Dubai Police urged parents and children guardians never to leave children alone unattended inside cars either by mistake or to run errands, even for a short period, noting that failing to protect and ensure children’s safety is punishable by the Federal Law No. 3 of 2016 on Child Rights.

Butti Al Falasi, Director of the Security Awareness Department at Dubai Police, confirmed that Dubai Police works tirelessly to analyze and tackle all safety and security-related issues all year round.

“We’ve spotted, on several occasions, parental negligence that thoughtlessly leaves children unattended inside cars either by mistake or to run errands unaware of the grave danger,” he added.

“Moreover, we urge parents and guardians not to leave their vehicles easily accessible and unlocked for children, so they do not climb into and lock themselves inside,” he continued.

It is worth noting that leaving children unattended inside vehicles could lead to suffocation, loss of consciousness and even death because of extreme heat and lack of oxygen.
