Oracle is spending this week bringing visitors to its stand up-to-date on its multiple enterprise offerings, following its recent acquisition spree. The vendor now boasts the combined efforts of PeopleSoft and JD Edwards, as well as those of retail solution provider Retek and real-time data management software firm TimesTen. Gitex provides the first opportunity for the widest possible base of Oracle’s regional customers and partners to learn how these strategic deals can improve their ability to process information and make more informed decisions, which is Oracle’s core theme for Gitex. Consolidation is a continuing trend in the global technology sector, and the exhibition provides an ideal platform for Oracle executives to articulate how its global acquisitions will resonate on a regional level and benefit customers here. “The company’s promise for Gitex 2005 — “Better Information for Better Business” — means that we are demonstrating firsthand how the Oracle E-Business Suite and the Oracle technology platform work together for hundreds of organisations in the region to make them more efficient, more competitive, and ultimately, more profitable,” says Ayman Abouseif, GCC managing director of Oracle. To substantiate its claims around the benefits of its solutions, Oracle is hosting a number of successful customers at its stand. End users from the telecoms, logistics, financial, and government sectors have committed themselves to speaking with potential customers this week about the specific benefits that their Oracle implementations have delivered. Organisations from the region are also making presentations about their success with Oracle’s Linux-based solutions. In addition, Oracle is also previewing the latest release of the Oracle Database 10g this week, emphasising the features that make it the platform of choice for many in the Middle East and beyond. “Gitex gives us the opportunity to showcase the latest software, just unveiled in the US, while making these new releases relevant to the Middle East market,” says Abouseif. Visitors to the Oracle World arena this week will also witness demonstrations of the latest Oracle Collaboration Suite, software which manages all business communications including e-mail, voicemail, fax, calendaring, and file management. A consistently strong draw to the vendor’s stand is always the Oracle E-Business Suite, which offers companies of all sizes comprehensive solutions in almost every business process, including accounting and billing, supply chain and asset management, and CRM. Since last year’s event, companies ranging from Jordan’s Umniah Telecom to Egypt’s Banque Misr and the UAE’s Grand Stores have opted for implementations of the ERP technology. A large number of Oracle’s key local partners can be found within Oracle World, each demonstrating their own Oracle-based solutions.
