Oracle has opened an innovation hub in Abu Dhabi aimed at fostering digital innovation and the UAE’s knowledge economy.

The innovation hub will be located on Al Reem Island and called Al Mustaqbal Oracle Innovation Hub.

It 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 offer training and upskilling programmes in the latest digital technologies for Abu Dhabi’s Emirati students, entrepreneurs, and women in tech.

Dr Mohamed Abdelhameed Al Askar, Director General, Abu Dhabi Digital Authority, 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. 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.”

Leopoldo Boado Lama, senior vice president, Business Applications, ECEMEA, Oracle, added, “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. 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 the Internet of Things (IoT).”

The Al Mustaqbal Oracle Innovation Hub is the company’s second innovation hub in the UAE. The first one was launched in Dubai under the name Zayed Innovation Hub.
