Liferay Inc, a global provider of digital experience platforms, has partnered with Smart Dubai to launch the ‘Invest in Dubai’ platform that helps empower strategic partnerships.

Smart Dubai, is an initiative based on HH Sheikh Mohamed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s vision to make Dubai the happiest city on earth. In co-operation with partners from the private and government sectors, the Smart Dubai initiative was established to enable, deliver and enhance an efficient, seamless, safe and personalised city experience for both residents and visitors.

The ‘Invest in Dubai’ platform is the product of a successful collaboration between more than 20 government entities to facilitate open business and attracting investments in Dubai. The platform is creating opportunities for investors and businesses in the Emirate by allowing them to access investments insights, obtain licenses and permits, as well as a number of key services across the entire business cycle. This centralised digital platform is aimed at assisting investors and businesses while reinforcing Dubai’s culture of innovation and cementing the city’s position as a global investment hub.

By collaborating with Liferay and its UAE-based partner Palmira Software House, Smart Dubai benefitted from an enterprise-grade, low code, quick-to-market content management solution (CMS) to develop and deliver the content and main pages of the platform in three months.

HE Wesam Lootah, CEO, Smart Dubai Government Establishment, said: “The Invest in Dubai platform aims to provide a world-class investor experience and transform the Emirate’s business environment. We created a unified and seamless user experience using the Liferay content management system which provided us the agility and flexibility to deliver Invest in Dubai in record time, accelerating the leaderships vision for the city.”

Bryan Cheung, CEO and Founder, Liferay, said: “We are delighted to support Smart Dubai and power the Invest in Dubai platform, an initiative that stands to strengthen the city’s dynamic economy. Liferay is committed to reinforce Smart Dubai’s drive to digitise and create a future-ready, Smart City.”
