The Abu Dhabi Ports Company (ADPC) announced at GITEX that it has gone live with a major deployment of Oracle E-Business Suite. ADPC is responsible for the new Khalifa Port development between Abu Dhabi and Dubai.

The Oracle deployment will be used to help manage processes and provide insights into the systems at the port.

The first phase, which is now complete, was to deploy Oracle E-Business Suite, with ADPC now running a single web-based solution integrated with all legacy systems and providing integration between departments.

On top of that, the Oracle solution provides daily business intelligence and a document management system integrated with ERP.

Dr Tony Douglas, CEO, ADPC, told press in Dubai that the Oracle solution would, “reap big benefits in terms of operational efficiency.”

The second phase of the ongoing project will be to integrate the ERP system with the Port Operating System (POS). Currently there are 350 internal users, as well as suppliers connected to the system, which was deployed by Fujitsu.

“At Oracle we take time to completely understand the specific needs and challenges of our client before we develop tailor-made solutions based on the wide range of our product portfolio,” says Arun Khehar, Vice President, MRD, Oracle MEA.

“The sheer volume of the Oracle products deployed in this case speaks volumes of our methodical approach, painstaking attention to detail and commitment to provide a comprehensive solution that covers every possible angle,” he continues.
