Oracle has announced the opening of an innovation hub in Abu Dhabi to help foster digital innovation and support the growth of the Emirate’s knowledge economy.

Located at its Abu Dhabi office on Al Reem Island, the new facility named ‘Al Mustaqbal Oracle Innovation Hub’, will act as a platform for Abu Dhabi’s public sector entities, Oracle customers and partners to understand the potential of emerging technologies better.

The innovation hub will also offer training and upskilling programmes in the latest digital technologies for Abu Dhabi’s Emirati students, entrepreneurs, and women in tech.

The hub was inaugurated by Dr Mohamed Abdelhameed Al Askar, director–general, Abu Dhabi Digital Authority, who stated: “The Oracle Innovation Hub is the perfect place where countless minds will join hands to share knowledge, inspire, collaborate, innovate and empower new creations in Abu Dhabi. The hub is also an ongoing commitment towards creating an enabling ecosystem for the youth to succeed and contribute to the growth of the digital economy.”

“We look forward to seeing the newly inaugurated hub as a platform for organisations across public and private sectors, including SMBs, to accelerate their digital transformation and benefit from the most recent innovations.”

“At Oracle, we are committed to supporting Abu Dhabi Digital Authority’s mandate to leverage emerging technologies to simplify the lives of the Abu Dhabi community and deliver a digital government that is proactive, personalised, collaborative, and secure”, said Leopoldo Boado Lama, senior vice president – Business Applications, ECEMEA, Oracle. “The Al Mustaqbal Oracle Innovation Hub is designed to serve as a centre for knowledge sharing, collaboration, and exploration of numerous growth possibilities that can be achieved with the latest cloud technologies, including artificial intelligence, machine learning, blockchain and internet of things (IoT).”

“The recent launch of our dedicated Abu Dhabi cloud region, followed by the opening of the Al Mustaqbal Oracle Innovation Hub today, are the latest examples of our continued investment in the Emirate. We are confident that the new hub will act as a catalyst to inspire and empower creative ideas that will support the digital future of Abu Dhabi,” said Nick Redshaw, senior vice president – Technology Cloud, Middle East and Africa, and UAE Country Leader, Oracle.

The Al Mustaqbal Oracle Innovation Hub is the company’s second innovation hub in the UAE.

The company’s Zayed Innovation Hub’ in Dubai has hosted many public and private sector executives from across the UAE and around the world over the past few years for trainings, mentorship sessions and joint exploration of innovative ideas. Through the Zayed Innovation Hub, Oracle has also upskilled more than 1000 Emirati Higher Colleges of Technology graduates in the latest digital technologies.
