The delegation will include representations of companies, banks and institutions such as Sabesp (São Paulo water and waste management company), Itaú BBA, Machado Mayer Advogados, BRF, Itapemirim, Kidy Calçados, Natural One, Colormaq, JBS, and others.
The group is scheduled to visit the Brazilian animal protein company BRF plant in Khalifa Industrial Zone in Abu Dhabi, where it produces processed poultry and beef food items.
The mission will also visit the works of Expo 2020, which Dubai will host from October to April 2021; Dubai Science Park – an area that gathers startups and scientific research projects; and Dubai Future Foundation – a body where the private and public sectors draw strategies for the future of the Dubai emirate.

Nutanix offers cloud-hosted virtual desktop solution

DUBAI: Cloud-hosted virtual desktop provider Nutanix is offering a 30-day trial of its Xi Frame product that lets employees access company apps on any device and from any location.

“Physical desktops and laptops are becoming a poor fit for today’s dynamic, digital workplace.

A digital workspace provides greater flexibility, so that employees can access the applications and data they need— from any device and any location,” company statement said.

“This is a much better fit for the way many businesses, across many industries, operate today. Instead of running on a local device, the applications and services of the digital workspace run in a data center and output is transmitted quickly and securely to the user across a network.”

Nutanix touts its virtual desk solution as easy to use, has global scalability, elastic by design, secured and developer friendly.

“Users gain easy access to remote virtual desktops or the ability to stream one or multiple applications on any device, with a multi-cloud platform designed for agility, performance, security, and flexibility,” the company said.
