Dewa, Huawei in talks to boost AI strategic cooperation

DUBAI, May 27, 2020

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) and Chinese multinational technology company Huawei are in talks to expand their strategic partnership in the artificial intelligence (AI) and digital transformation cooperation fields.
The duo also discussed the best international solutions, experiences and practices in innovation, disruptive technologies, smart grids, digital transformation, automation, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence.
During a video conference, Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Dewa Managing Director and CEO, and Charles Yang, President of Huawei Middle East, discussed ways to strengthen co-operation and promoting bilateral relations, as well as sharing the best international practices and experiences.
Al Tayer spoke about Dewa’s precautionary measures to combat the pandemic, and protect the health and safety of employees, customers, and society.
Al Tayer said that Dewa works in line with the directives of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, who instructed Dubai's Government organisations to implement services 10 years ahead of other cities around the world. 
In line with its vision to become a leading sustainable innovative corporation, Dewa has come a long way in this area by launching Digital Dewa, its digital arm, to redefine the concept of utilities and create a new digital future for Dubai.
Al Tayer said Dewa was working with Huawei to promote a new digital future for Dubai in key areas that align with the authority's objectives in the Dubai 10X initiative.
"This has already started with our fibre optic backbone upgrade as part of the InfraX project. This has enabled us to apply video surveillance as a service and a virtual desktop interface, which will be provided through Moro's digital platform.
The partnership between Dewa and Huawei also includes future projects such as big data management, perimeter and ICT infrastructure security, cyber security, and information security, among others, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
