Dubai Municipality has deployed Microsoft Enterprise Project Management (EPM) to provide advanced project management capabilities, enabling better planning, analysis, resource provisioning and management, knowledge sharing and enhanced reporting. The EPM solution serves over 100 IT staff at Dubai Municipality, with the solution set to expand to serve more personnel and other departments in the future. The deployment creates significant savings for Dubai Municipality in time, resources and paperwork.

Two major projects using Microsoft technology have been announced in Abu Dhabi. As part of the Abu Dhabi government's e-government initiative, Abu Dhabi's Department of Municipalities and Agriculture-Works (DMA-Works) launched a new web-based project management and collaboration solution based on Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server. The second project in Abu Dhabi is for the Abu Dhabi Holding Corporation (ADHC), the independent government body charged with developing the industrial sector in Abu Dhabi. The new solution allows DMA-Works, contractors, consultants and other stakeholders to collaborate, manage, monitor and plan all tasks for a specific project through an online portal, and is used to manage all of Abu Dhabi's public building and infrastructure work.

Microsoft has also been active in the Sultanate of Oman. The Omani Ministry of Education has deployed Microsoft Windows Server System for countrywide live communications and collaboration platform. The first project being managed using this system is the Shaikh Zayed Bridge Project, a major new transportation and infrastructure project for Abu Dhabi. The system also uses other Microsoft solutions, including Windows Server 2003 and Microsoft Project Server 2003, along with engineering collaboration technology from AutoDesk. This IT infrastructure allows the staff of the Ministry to connect with the teachers of all public schools across the Sultanate.
