Dubai Internet City (DIC), the Middle East and North Africa's largest ICT hub and strategic partner for GITEX for the 15th consecutive year, yesterday unveiled the latest in smart innovations and digital technology at GITEX 2014, in the presence of H. H Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai.

In line with Dubai's wider smart initiatives, AXS, TECOM Investment's new business partner services platform, simplified to deliver a smart user experience, launched yesterday at DIC's pavilion. This online service will provide business partners with government, employee and corporate services under one umbrella.

As part of DIC's ongoing support for its business partners, industry giant and key business partner Intel is showcasing its latest smart Internet of Things (IoT) innovations at DIC's pavilion, including Smart Buildings Solutions and the latest technology for Costa Coffee, a new coffee machine ‘Costa Express'. IoT, a growing trend in the technology and ICT sector, is expected to be worth US$1.9 trillion by 2020, according to Gartner.

"It was 15 years ago that His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum announced the creation of Dubai Internet City, at GITEX 1999, in an ambition to transform the U.A.E.'s commercial landscape and develop a vibrant knowledge-economy. Over the last 15 years, we have attracted some of the biggest names in the industry, and the U.A.E.'s ICT market has seen exponential growth, as highlighted by the technologies being showcased this week," said Majed Al Suwaidi, Managing Director of Dubai Internet City and Dubai Outsource Zone .

TaskSpotting and Crowd Analyser are also exhibiting alongside DIC, and will be analysing social media and online conversation throughout the course of the week.

TaskSpotting, the first app in the U.A.E. that offers cash rewards for tasks, is carrying out missions that gather information that is interesting to all visitors to the stand, with the results showcased at the DIC pavilion.

Crowd Analyser, a social media monitoring start-up which analyses the conversation on social media about brands and trends and shares insights on ways to engage with customers, is showcasing their technology and providing real time analysis, including what is trending about GITEX; the data is segmented by nationalities, top topics and other key segments.

DIC is also hosting the largest 4k transparent table, the latest in smart solutions delivered by Paravision, which includes an interactive timeline for Dubai Internet City and Dubai, and allows visitors to interact with social media. This is in line with the latest Smart initiatives by the Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
