Mid­dle East Smart Cities Boost Global Mar­ket to US$ 1.2 Tril­lion

Dossier - - LOCAL NEWS -

The Mid­dle East is boost­ing the global Smart Cities mar­ket growth, which re­search firm Mar­kets and Mar­kets ex­pects to nearly triple to US$ 1.2 tril­lion by 2022, say in­dus­try ex­perts. Across the Mid­dle East and North Africa, in­no­va­tive pub­lic-pri­vate part­ner­ships are pow­er­ing the fu­ture of Smart Cities; from Dubai in the UAE to NEOM in the King­dom of Saudi Ara­bia.

SAP is the first multi-na­tional en­ter­prise ap­pli­ca­tion soft­ware com­pany with live cloud data cen­ters in the UAE and King­dom of Saudi Ara­bia, the lat­ter part of a wider Saudi Ara­bia Dig­i­tal Hub.

Push­ing the bound­aries of fu­ture ur­ban mo­bil­ity in Smart Cities, SAP is mark­ing the Mid­dle East de­but of one of the world’s smartest con­cept ve­hi­cles at GITEX this year. Vis­i­tors to the SAP booth can ex­pe­ri­ence how ve­hi­cle chas­sis and pods can be re-ar­ranged for smart taxi fleets, and how con­nected lo­gis­tics and waste man­age­ment are rev­o­lu­tion­iz­ing the Smart City ve­hic­u­lar ex­pe­ri­ence.

“The Mid­dle East’s Smart Cities are global pi­o­neers in em­brac­ing the vi­sion of the In­tel­li­gent En­ter­prise. Not only are they run­ning on the cloud, they are in­vest­ing in in­dus­try ver­ti­cal use cases – in­clud­ing con­nected trans­porta­tion – in a man­ner that can trans­form the econ­omy, so­ci­ety and the en­vi­ron­ment at large,” com­mented Steve Tzikakis, SAP Pres­i­dent of South Europe, Mid­dle East and Africa.

In­tel­li­gent En­ter­prises Lever­age AI, Ma­chine Learn­ing, Blockchain, and IoT.
