Smart Dubai: Data compliance tool
Experience Design • Data visualization
The data compliance tool (DCT) will facilitate the interaction between Dubai Data Establishment and Government Entities.
Dubai city is the world’s first city where the sharing of data is mandated by law and to demystify the data regulation framework and create an ecosystem where data can be shared securely, effectively, and for maximum benefit.
A great experience strategy starts with clarity and focus
The challenge was to simplify the process of converting all paper and manuals in the data compliance process to be digitized and automated, and present data in effective and interesting ways that can be easily understood for all users' segments.

To create useful applications for collected data, we must keep into consideration different user segments within the ecosystem. This opened the door for the exploration of more complex use cases and scenarios.
USER FLOW (Is To Be)
Create task flows to complete each task while covering all business opportunities, avoiding users’ confusions, increase efficiency and put useful constraints to keep the consistency of data gathering.
In IA we cared about grouping, organizing and labeling sections of related items to easing the navigation and meeting the users’ mental models.
We built a compliance tool that made it easier for all entities within the Dubai governmental ecosystem to get a personalized, customized dashboard, collected and analyzed data automatically based on their needs.
Built an easy workflow diagram to organize the flow that should be implemented through the organization and how the heresy should be followed.
Created a split-screen view for users since our research findings show that users go back and forth in some cases to be edit records, the split view will make it easier for them to view data from different directions at the same time.
Data Inventory / Version control
Since the data flow creates tons of versions, it’s a challenge to keep tracking all the activities, that’s why we build a version control system that enables users to view versions of the same file if it’s status.
Data Inventory / Data readiness
View and prioritize the next piece of information to assign to the team to work on based on the size of data and its priority.
Home page/ Dashboard
One custom dashboard based on user’s preferences for monitoring, for each entity, and every score entity gets, to give decision-maker the overview he needs to take the right decision.
Humanization through VISUALIZATION
In order to be utilized, all of that gathered data needs to be presented in a way that's easily understandable. Our focus is to choose the right visualization for every piece of data and make it easier for decision-makers and internal teams to understand, detect patterns, trends, and outliers in groups of data.
We had the incredible honor to share our thoughts and work towards UX at Smart Dubai and to take the concept into an awesome experience.
