Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI), the representative body of the business community in Dubai, has launched a new project to deploy an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system based on Oracle's e-business suite.

It aims to optimise its business resources and information sharing. DCCI believes, the new system would lay the ground work for DCCI's plans to offer enhanced e-business services to its members.

The project is being implemented by Hyperlink, a Middle East based, Oracle e-business suite implementation and consultancy services company. The ERP system will focus on implementing DCCI's HR, financial and distribution processes.

As the representative body for every practicing business and professional organisation in Dubai, DCCI's primary functions includes protecting the interests of the business community in the region, by providing value-added services.

"This step is in line with our continuous effort to develop the social and business community in Dubai, as well as enhance the Chamber's ability to offer qualitative services to its members," says Abdul Rahman Ghanem Al Mutaiwee, director general, DCCI.

"The usage of DCCI's Oracle database, that will be used by all government departments, will create a more unified approach through integration of systems. We are also adopting modern methods in planning for Human Resources and finance with co-ordination with the Dubai eGovernment team," adds Al Mutaiwee.

"DCCI's key focus areas were its HR, financial and distribution systems. After a thorough study, the Hyperlink team made a recommendation to replace DCCI's existing set-up of Unix Solaris, NCR server and Oracle DB customer systems with Oracle's e-business suite of Solutions", said Dani Diab, executive vice president and general manager of Hyperlink.

Apart from implementation, development, design, consulting and support, Hyperlink will also provide training to DCCI employees, the project team and end-users. "Training is essential to the success of the Oracle e-Business Suite migration. Users need to familiarize themselves with each other's roles as well as update themselves on the advanced functionality of the new system", adds Diab.

"The Dubai e-government project was a catalyst in launching the Chamber's electronic services. Connecting the departments electronically has contributed to saving of costs and easy exchange data throughout the departments," says Abdul Rahman Al Qahash, acting interim manager of the IT Dept, DCCI.
