“The new ARIS-based (Architecture of Integrated Information Systems) e-Gate, which will soon be uploaded on the DM intranet, would help the staff have easy access to the municipality’s internal data resources,” said Abdullah Al Shaibani, Assistant Director General of Dubai Municipality for Technical Services. According to Al Shaibani, the launching of the new system comes as part of the DM’s e-government initiative and aims at facilitating the process of organisational learning. The system involves transferring thousands of paper-based documents related to the organisational structure of DM’s various departments.

Hawa Bastaki, Director of Administrative Development and Quality Department, said more than 3,500 traditional paper-based work processes and orders had already been converted into electronic format.

Some of the other benefits of the integrated e-Gate are easy decision making, and integration of the existing database with the computer systems at the municipality.

“This is one of the major steps we are taking in fully automating our work processes. We hope that by the end of this year, we can achieve a fully paper-less office, thanks to this system,” Bastaki noted.
