The spotlight at the Software AG pavilion at the GITEX Technology Week 2019 is an immersive working LEGO model of “The Future Smart City”, powered by IoT and AI. The model illustrates the potential of digital transformation in the coming decade.

The IoT-powered miniature Smart City will showcase various public services use cases incuding energy monitoring to control costs and conserve resources, drone-activated smart parking services, smart school bus services to monitor number of passengers, location and road condition monitoring, remote windmill monitoring and street lighting control - among others. Visitors will only need to “ask Alexa” who will demonstrate how it works.

Visitors to the pavilion will also be able to witness digitalisation use cases and customer journeys across various industry verticals, such as government, banking and oil & gas.

Rami Kichli, vice-president, Gulf and Levant at Software AG, said, “Dubai has positioned itself to be a frontrunner as the smartest city in the world. Supporting this mission, businesses across the emirate are quick to embrace disruption through constant innovation to suit customer needs. As a software solutions provider, it is our responsibility to measure and assess the digital readiness and identify business objectives to drive effective transformations.”

Software AG will host its regional partners at its pavilion, each showcasing its technologies and offerings. Tahaluf, is the Platinum sponsor and co-host of Software AG booth. Technology Strategies Middle East (TSME), Emircom and Palmira are Diamond sponsors while HERE Technologies is the Gold Sponsor.
