DEWA launches Google Glass app
Step part of Dubai's vision to become smartest city on earth.
Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has launched its smart app for Google Glass.
The app improves internal procedures by enabling technicians to detect any faults in stations and substations and send notifications to DEWA’s Enterprise Resource Planning System from SAP.
Notifications include details such as location and images of the fault.
“DEWA has realised the effective role of smart apps in providing reliable high-quality services,” said Moza Al Akraf, Acting CIO of DEWA.
“This supports its plans that keep pace with the ongoing development of smart services in the UAE and the vision of our wise leadership.”
DEWA transformed all its services into smart services less than a year after the smart initiative for the UAE was announced.
This includes providing smart services on smart devices to employees, customers, consultants, job seekers, and government organisations, anytime, anywhere.
DEWA first used smart technologies in 2009 to then launch of its smart app, enabling it to complete its smart transformation.
All DEWA’s services are available through its app, which supports iOS and Android platforms for mobile phones, and its feature on its dewa.gov.ae website.
It can also be used on other platforms, such as BlackBerry, Windows, Windows Phone, smart watches, Samsung home applications and Etisalat’s eLife.
