The initiative is between Moro Hub, a subsidiary of Digital DEWA, and SAP
DEWA recently announced a partnership between Moro Hub (Data Hub Integrated Solutions), a subsidiary of Digital DEWA, the digital arm of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority and SAP.
The initiative will allow government and private entities to unlock new efficiencies with intelligent automation across their mission-critical processes, that will be hosted from state-of-the-art Moro Hub’s data centres, complying with data residency and cyber security requirements of the UAE.
The offering will be based on converting clients’ capital expenditures (CAPEX) to predictive operating expenditure (OPEX), primarily aimed to reduce the total cost of ownership and allowing the businesses to focus on their core operations, and the estimated savings will be 20 to 30% for customers.
The announcement was made during ‘Shaping the Future with Digital Innovation’ Forum, which DEWA organised in partnership with SAP at Expo 2020 Dubai. It was attended by HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA; Christian Klein, the Chief Executive Officer and member of the Executive Board of SAP SE, and HE Saif Humaid AlFalasi, Group CEO, ENOC.
Al Tayer noted that the UAE occupies an advanced position in the Global Innovation Index and adopts the latest innovative technological solutions in all key areas.
Al Tayer explained that the strategic partnership between DEWA and SAP started in 2009 when DEWA implemented SAP Wave 1 for Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system to measure, integrate, and automate all DEWA’s processes to provide the highest level of service to its customers, employees and partners. Moro Hub is the first local cloud services provider to be certified by Dubai Electronic Security Centre (DESC) to ensure highest levels of security standards and compliance, thus accelerating clients’ digital transformation journey.
