Dubai Government has completed the implementation of Oracle’s E-Business Suite at The Ruler’s Court, Dubai Economic Department and Dubai Civil Aviation. The project is part of the government’s ongoing Government Resource Planning (GRP) project, which will eventually see the application rolled out to all 25 government departments.

Delivered to each department via a government-wide intranet, the solution covers finance, budgeting, procurement and human resources. The implementation has been carried out by KPMG and an in-house team, while the software stack runs on IBM hardware.

According to Thani Alzaffin, director of the Government Information Resources Department at HH Ruler’s Court, the E-Business Suite will facilitate more efficient management and planning within the public sector.

“The GRP project is focusing on efficiency, availability of timely information and excellence in public services,” he adds.

Moving forward, the deployment team hopes to complete implementing the Oracle suite in 90% of outstanding government departments by the end of 2004. When finished, the GRP will form the backbone of Dubai Government’s e-services drive and accelerate its move towards the knowledge economy.

“We have a clear mandate from His Highness to [establish] Dubai Government as a model e-government, not only by enabling electronic services, but also by streamlining and automating internal processes for our employees,” says Alzaffin. 5a
