Why Emirates AI
Goverment Expertise & Knowledge

Proudly based in the UAE, we have been working exclusively with the government for years. As a result, we were able to understand their uniquechallenges and ambitions and tailor solutions that entirely meet their needs.

As the UAE aggressively moves towards digital transformation across all its government entities, we strive to enable them to transform products, services, and processes, and help them save on cost and time, making the most out of the latest technology solutions we implement.

Shifting UAE Government IT 180 degrees is at the core of our business. We understand what it takes to fulfill this challenging and rewarding digital transformation journey, and we are here to stay and contribute towards the rise of a new digital nation.

Goverment Tailored Solutions

Transforming IT across governments demands partners with sound expertise and understanding of the local market, of which the UAE is proudly abundant. Yet, several technology solutions fail to compete in the local market due to their unpreparedness to overcome cultural diversity, which is critical in empowering government employees to achieve smoother automation processes while innovating faster.

We understand cultural diversity, as we are gladly part of it. Furthermore, we know how our people think, behave, and feel, for we have been walking side-by-side along with the government for years, building partnerships.

Building solid partnerships is crucial in designing and implementing solutions that will drive massive digital transformations, and we are delighted to embrace it as a core strength in our portfolio of products.

So, be it E-services, Process Automation, Custom Software development, Artificial Intelligence, or so on; we provide the latest technology solutions which enable governments to go digital in a smoother manner.

Team Expertise In Goverment

To drive massive governmental digital transformations in countries like the UAE, a country that strives to achieve excellence in building a global model for government solutions services, one needs to start by assembling a team of highly skilled individuals. Yet, these individuals must understand the particularities involving technical implementations at governments and the alignment of members from various business units.

By creating a team of highly skilled professionals and with extensive experience working with UAE governments, 180IT can ensure that the projects are being thoroughly tackled, mostly because these individuals understand the implementation process at governmental entities, as well as their internal procedures, and goals. They have been either working for governments or communicating with their employees for years, therefore, better prepared to address their specific challenges and needs.


For that reason, we take pride in selecting individuals who are Arabic speakers and highly skilled in IT, but more importantly, having extensive experience in UAE governmental projects. This selection has been instrumental in helping governments in the UAE to drive digital transformation successfully.

To be successful, your team and our team should feel like one, working through any challenges that occur to ensure everyone is up-to-speed on how transformation is going. That's the assurance we provide through our team. Together, we are confident we can achieve excellence in building a global model for digital transformation in the UAE.

Certified Government Artificial Intelligence Course™
Level up your AI knowledge and help make the 2031 vision a reality.

One may not think AI would be part of our everyday life as much as it is today. From AI-powered self-driving taxi cars commuting us safely and sustainably inside Expo 2020 to AI-powered smartphones recognizing identities through Face-ID or AI-powered pharmacy robots enabling quicker and safer directions for drug dispensing at hospitals, artificial intelligence surrounds us almost everywhere in the UAE.

Similarly, AI in Government is being felt. In 2018, the UAE announced its National Strategy for AI, and it aims no less than to become the world's most prepared country for Artificial Intelligence by 2031. Since then, several AI opportunities for citizens, governments, and businesses have been felt in the nation's economic, educational, and social life; and are expected to grow exponentially in the coming years. But to "build" an AI economy rather than "waiting" for one, as stated by H.E.Omar Bin Sultan AL Olama, Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence, Digital Economy and Remote Work Applications, the country needs to create an AI knowledge-based workforce. A foundation of talents ready to learn new skills, adapt to new technologies and develop novel AI solutions to inspire the world.

In line with the UAE's vision, Emirates AI, powered by Harrisburg University, is set to launch its first certification course in the UAE: the Certified Government Artificial Intelligence Course. The certification aims to provide a unique perspective on the prerequisite components required to establish a foundational AI culture within government organizations and a glimpse of the emerging future of AI. Successful completion of this certification will enable you to understand Government AI more effectively, leading you to become part of the foundation of talents that the UAE aspires to build. Overall, the course targets candidates who want to develop the insight needed to explore and apply Al Technologies within the government sector.

In this certification, you will gain insights on the following key points:

  • Know what it means to be a Government AI Professional
  • Learn how ready you and your organization are for AI
  • Explore the benefits of AI for Governments
  • Learn how you can get started with AI in your organization
  • Understand the role of Cyber Security in AI and they work in tandem
  • Explore different Use Cases of AI in Government
