Ports rolls out Oracle ERP and BI to enhance business processes and planning
The UAE's Port of Fujairah has completed the deployment of several Oracle applications, to help it improve financial and business processes and to provide a basis for further growth.
The multi-purpose port, on the UAE's east coast, is a multi-purpose facility that provides a range of services including general cargo, bulk cargo, wet bulk cargo, container activity, port facilities for small crafts and other port services.
Oracle supplied its E-Business Suite R12 and Oracle Business Intelligence Standard Edition to the port, with the deployment taking place over seven months. The new solutions are intended to integrate financial processes, and provide an IT foundation for future growth, particularly through business-wide transparent reporting and planning.
The project, which was implemented by Oracle and its partners Fujitsu, and Computer Network Systems (CNS), includes Oracle Financials with Oracle Inventory Management, Oracle Purchasing, and Oracle Human Resources. It also supplied Oracle Business Intelligence Standard Edition and Oracle Discoverer for business activity analysis and reporting.
"Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 enabled us to improve resource transparency, planning, reporting, integration, and scalability as demanded by a sophisticated and continually expanding multipurpose sea port. We deployed it in collaboration with Oracle Partners Fujitsu and Computer Network Systems, and later upgraded to Release 12.1 using in-house staff," said Madhusudhan Sarangi, IT Manager, Port of Fujairah.
Abdul Rahman Al Thehaiban, vice president, Oracle Middle East & Africa, commented: "The innovative idea behind the Oracle E-Business Suite is to provide organizations of all sizes with an unprecedented single integrated computer-based application across all functional areas to optimize visibility, operational efficiency, control of information and decision-making processes, and drive sustainable growth."
"We are proud that Port of Fujairah chose Oracle E-Business Suite solutions to modernize its HR and financial processes and maximize its overall quality service with a view to achieving its strategic objectives and securing upgrades for the legacy system," Al Thehaiban added.
