About Dubai Pulse

As articulated by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Prime Minister and Vice President of UAE, and Ruler of Dubai, the vision for Dubai is to be the happiest city on Earth. In order to fulfil the vision of Sheikh Mohammed, The Smart Dubai office and du have built a multi-purpose Dubai Pulse that will serve as the central platform for providing compute and storage services, Core analytic services as well as Big Data services, for use of various entities in the UAE for the purpose of utilizing such data to enhance the way of living for all of UAE's citizens and residents, and promote the vision of making Dubai the Smartest and Happiest city Earth.

Uniting all aspects of Dubai's smart city roadmap, the Dubai Pulse will be unlike any other dubai pulse operating in the world today. The platform is designed to help achieve this vision in various ways. One of these ways, is to provide a single place for sharing Dubai's data (within the bounds of Dubai Data Law), from a wide variety of sources in the public and private sector in the city of Dubai. Such a co-location of data sources will also provide the opportunity of viewing such data in such ways as to provide valuable insights through curated 'data views', as well as allow users to create their own data view.

The Dubai Pulse will also provide other services such as Platform as a Service (PaaS), Data as a Service (DaaS), and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). These services, combined with the centralised location of Dubai's data, will create a unique innovation platform for entrepreneurs, private citizens, as well as public sector entities, to truly unlock the potential within these data, and make a significant contribution towards the efficiency and seamlessness of a world class smart city.

Dubai Pulse is the means of sharing open data in order to be utilized by people and encourage the innovation among people.
