Hyperlink, a leading consultancy firm specialised in providing total integrated IT solutions in the Middle East, has successfully implemented the leading Oracle Financial Suite for Dubai Technology, E-commerce and Media Free Zone Authority. The project, conducted by Hyperlink, a sister company to Abu Dhabi-based Emirates Computers, represents one of the fastest implementations of Oracle in the world and the first in the Middle East involving controlled release software.

The implementation of Oracle's Enterprise Resource Planning Application (ERP) suite, a core financial system which will automate back office operations for the Authority, was completed within just six weeks and represents one of the most aggressive implementations of a project of this kind. As a result of Hyperlink's record-breaking completion of the challenging initiative, Hyperlink has earned certification as an Oracle 11I Training Partner, making the company the first and only Oracle 11I implementation partner in the Middle East to attain this certification.

As part of the initiative Hyperlink was required to provide a multi-organisational setup, which also involved elements of training and customisation, and a specialised team of consultants who implemented core financials and property management systems in order to install the technology specially designed to run the infrastructure of the whole operation. Hyperlink's expertise and knowledge was needed to deal with two different platforms NT and Tru64 UNIX and set up of the prototype/training system, in addition to combining end-user and project team training and operations analysis.

Hani Harik, President, Hyperlink said, "The agreement to adopt this specialised technology and the stringent time period allotted for the
project's implementation is a benchmark for technical competence and a prime example of a 'zero-time' organisation. By awarding this important initiative to an Emirates-based company, the Media Free Zone Authority has not only adopted a system which will effectively facilitate its business, the Authority has also shown its support for the growth of the local IT industry."

Hyperlink, set up two years ago, was established as a joint UAE / Lebanese business venture in order to provide fully integrated and enterprise wide solutions for major companies in the Middle East. The organisation has also announced the planned relocation of its Middle East operations to Dubai Internet City with its partner Oracle.
