Emaar Properties has completed the deployment of an internal communications portal allowing employees quicker access to shared information, thus enhancing internal communication and productivity. Based on Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server 2003, the portal will link employees from Emaar offices and sales centres. The deployment, which took five weeks to complete, will host important employee documents and information and will also integrate with Emaar’s existing Microsoft Exchange Server 2000. The solution is based on Windows Server 2003 platform, with Microsoft SQL 2000 as the back end database. “As Emaar expands business its employees need to be able to access important business data and information more efficiently,” says Arvind Bhatnagar, CEO of Sahm Technologies, the technology subsidiary of Emaar Properties. “Emaar realised the need for an integrated communications portal and wanted to put a solution in place as quickly as possible – Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server allowed us to design and implement a fully working portal for the company in just five weeks,” he adds. Communication plays a major role in the growth of any organisation. Emaar is one of the most dynamic companies in the Middle East, leading in a sector that is experiencing dramatic growth, says Abdullatif Al Mulla, general manager of Microsoft South Gulf.
