The “Invest in Dubai” platform is the product of a successful collaboration between more than 20 government entities to facilitate commencing a business and attracting investments in Dubai. The platform is creating opportunities for investors and businesses in the Emirate by allowing them to access investments insights, obtain licenses and permits, as well as a number of key services across the entire business cycle. This centralized digital platform is aimed at assisting investors and businesses while reinforcing Dubai’s culture of innovation and cementing the city’s position as a global investment hub.

Liferay’s Digital Experience Platform enabled the creation of a personalized web experience using standard front-end technologies. By collaborating with Liferay and its UAE based partner Palmira Software House, Smart Dubai benefitted from an enterprise-grade, low-code, quick-to-market Content Management solution to develop and deliver the content and main pages of the platform in 3 months. This easy-to-use platform enhances user experience and empowers users to access information and services in a well designed and developed content structure.

Speaking on the partnership, H.E. Wesam Lootah, CEO, Smart Dubai Government Establishment said, “The Invest in Dubai platform aims to provide a world-class investor experience and transform the Emirate’s business environment. We created a unified and seamless user experience using the Liferay Content Management System which provided us the agility and flexibility to deliver “Invest in Dubai” in record time, accelerating the leaderships vision for the city.”

Bryan Cheung, CEO & Founder, Liferay, said, “We are delighted to support Smart Dubai and power the Invest in Dubai platform, an initiative that stands to strengthen the city’s dynamic economy. Liferay is committed to reinforce Smart Dubai’s drive to digitize and create a future-ready, smart city.”
