Facilio Smart IoT DigitalX PRNew York-based Facilities Management-tech start-up Facilio and Smart IoT have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Digital X, a subsidiary of Digital DEWA, to support the implementation of 'Smart Living as a Service' (SLaaS) furthering His Highness Sheikh Mohammed’s Dubai 10X vision

The strategic MoU signing and launch of SLaaS was announced during Gitex 2019. The initiative will include solutions for smart home and office, smart buildings, surveillance and security, as well as health and safety, with the support of Facilio and Smart IoT.

Dubai10X focuses on digital transformation and future-readiness, to position the emirati city 10 years ahead of other leading global hubs while promoting sustainable development.

As part of this effort, Digital DEWA has undertaken research and implementation of autonomous systems for AI-empowered solar energy generation and storage, as well as conceptualising Digital X, an initiative to deliver SLaaS.

The SLaaS is aimed at enhancing the quality of life of the city’s businesses and residents with the aid of the tech-driven innovations.

Marwan Bin Haidar, executive vice-president of innovation and the future at DEWA, said, “We have signed an MoU with Facilio, a well-known tech platform, and Smart IoT, a leading local entrepreneur. The objective here is to deliver SLaaS of the highest global standards for all of Dubai’s residents. The initiative will redefine urban living not only in Dubai, but also across other global cities in the future.”

Smart IoT brings to the table local expertise and perspective, and will assist in day-to-day operations and successful establishment of Digital X systems. While International partner Facilio will help Digital X evolve into an effective futuristic system, in line with global sensibilities.

It is both our pleasure and honour to work with Digital X to further our shared goal of Dubai 10X by collaborating with our partner Facilio, said Khalifa A AlJaziri, managing director of Smart IoT.

Prabhu Ramachandran, founder and CEO, Facilio Inc, said, “Smart Living as a Service is a future-ready idea, which has customer experience, sustainability and efficiency at its core. As a technology company, we have inherent faith in the power of technology to achieve the impossible and are always striving to remain at the forefront of innovative next-gen tech. This partnership is a great opportunity for us to bring the best services and cutting-edge technology from around the world to Dubai."
