“digital certificates”

International Humanitarian City

the challenge

A Digital Certificate provides an electronic means of proving your identity. It also provides you with a high level of security for your online transactions. You can use certificates to encrypt information such that only the intended recipient can read it.


to optimize operating performance, data accuracy, access control and global security, ATEIS began an evaluation of enterprise capture and business automation solutions and decided to standardize on both Microsoft cloud services as well as Kofax Express for ongoing document digitization requirements

the International Humanitarian City (IHC) was founded in 2003 by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai, through the merger of Dubai Aid City (DAC) and Dubai Humanitarian City (DHC)


it is the one and only non-profit, independent, humanitarian free-zone authority hosting a community of members comprised of UN organisations, international non-governmental organisations, intergovernmental organisations, and commercial companies

today, over 15 years later, IHC is the largest humanitarian hub in the world with the most diverse members 


it plays a pivotal role in facilitating first responses to crises at a global level efficiently


based in Dubai, IHC has a strategic location allowing rapid relief to be within reach in all corners of the world

the solution

ATEÏS chose oryx to migrate all Microsoft on-premise solutions to Office 365 including Microsoft Outlook/Exchange as well as SharePoint 


Microsoft SharePoint was the selected solution to archive and index 10 years of operations documents and Kofax Express was the chosen software to index and handle 250,000 + pages of documents 


Kofax Express is a powerful, all-in-one, easy-to-use, batch-oriented document scan application capable of high-speed scanning with real-time image display, indexing and bar code detection, tightly integrated into Microsoft SharePoint

Microsoft Office 365 is a web-based version of Microsoft’s suite of enterprise-grade productivity applications 


it is delivered to users through the cloud and includes Exchange Online for email, SharePoint Online for document management and collaboration, Lync Online for unified communications as well as a suite of Office Web Apps

the results

today ATEÏS fully operates its business in the cloud


all business documents are stored securely, with fully centralized administration and document access control


the application is tightly integrated to core business process applications including CRM and ERP and has led to massive improvements in processing time, data quality and data governance


ATEÏS has been able to reduce the overall annual IT budget by 35% by becoming cloud-centric
