Abstract

Technology is seen as a key driving force in the economy within all of the seven emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates (UAE) nation; the seven are Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm al-Qaiwain, Ras al- Khaimah, and Fujairah. The government of Dubai leads the other emirates in terms of commerce activity, and has taken a strategic view of creating and promoting government portals to achieve this vision. Recently Dubai's Municipality portal won an award for best content among all other UAE portals.
