Abu Dhabi Accountability Authority (ADAA) has become the first government entity to shift its data center to the emirate’s artificial intelligence (AI) and cloud computing company, G42 Cloud and expand its AI capabilities across its digital operations.

Under the collaboration, the Authority will use advanced cloud computing and AI to support the implementation of best governance practices and introduce new monitoring technologies, as the G42 cloud will allow the Authority applications to be integrated with G42 AI tools, which will enhance Abu Dhabi’s competitiveness in global governance indexes.

“This shift is in line with our government’s mandate for digital transformation, which reflects our leadership’s foresight in mapping the future of the government sector to successfully anticipate and navigate global challenges that require change,” Ms. Haifa Al Blooshi, ADAA’s Director of Information Technology, said. 

The transformation is designed to improve organizational efficiency and reduce financial and operational costs by adopting cloud technology while promoting IT infrastructure maintenance and operational savings. Further, it will lead to improved operational flexibility, allowing the ADAA to expand its service without limitation to hardware availability, and it will also promote information security and support the development of national cadres in the field of cloud computing.

The partnership agreement between the entities supports rapid digital transformation across the Abu Dhabi government and empowers the ADAA to attain its new strategic goals of improving the safeguarding of public funds, elevating the principles of accountability and integrity, and achieving optimum operational efficiencies.
