We look at the internet of things (IoT) in this issue, the technology underpinning smart cities.

But it’s not just smart city developments like that in Dubai that are driving investment in IoT, but the Middle East’s push towards economic diversification. This attempt to reduce reliance on oil revenues is encouraging the development of applications for sectors, such as transport and logistics, telecommunications, financial services and tourism.

To date, more than 1.4 million DHA patient medical records have been transferred to the system.
