Dubais Corporate Office Selects Oracle

Originally published February 20, 2006

The Corporate Office of the Government of Dubai has selected Oracle E-Business Suite to fully automate, integrate and streamline the business operations of PCFC (Ports Customs Free Zone Corporation).

The ambitious project is aimed at improving operational efficiencies, enhancing financial reporting, maximizing the return on human talent and increasing the quality of customer service.

The Oracle E-Business Suite project at The Corporate Office (TCO) will cover financial management, property management, project development, human resources management and customer relationship management (CRM) in a single integrated environment that enables business managers at all levels to make faster fact-based decisions.

The unique multi-organization capability of the Oracle E-Business Suite will allow business managers at all levels within each business unit to have a full view of their operational and financial data. Executives at the group level will be able to view and analyze information about the whole group and be able to drill down to each operating units data.

"Our group's ever-expanding business operations span the development, management and marketing of ports, real estate development, investment and Free Zone operations around the world. We wanted an integrated system that can support our global operations while providing our business executives with the insight they need in order to make fast, smart and fact-based decisions, and Oracle E-Business Suite provided the perfect answer," said Francis Veldeman, Group CIO at TCO.

"We selected Oracle Consulting to implement this project because of their expertise in deploying global information technology projects and their deep understanding of our business. We are particularly interested in a single global instance that caters to the needs of each Business Unit and that will connect all our servers within Dubai, regionally and globally with each other. This will ensure full availability, full transparency and consistency of data relating to employees, customers and suppliers," said  Husam Dajani, Oracles Vice President for the Middle East and Africa region. "The exponential growth of the group's business units created an exciting partnering opportunity for Oracle, which was fully prepared for and totally committed to this global project".
