Saudi Paper Manufacturing Company (SPMC) is set to embark on a major new cloud computing project with SAP.

The tissue paper manufacturer will roll out SAP ERP, and other solutions, all based on the SAP HANA cloud platform, which is intended to provide greater efficiency and innovation to enable business expansion.

Phase one of the project will see SPMC adopt the SAP ERP solution. Subsequent phases will introduce SAP Advanced Planner and Optimizer, Manufacturing Integration & Intelligence, Business Intelligence, Business Planning & Consolidation into the mix.

All solutions will be hosted on the SAP HANA Cloud Platform, which drives optimal performance through the power of real-time, in-memory computing. SPMC is the first SAP client in the MENA region to invest in the SAP HANA.

"SPMC has an aggressive expansion programme, and we need to have systems in place that can scale and support our ambitious," said Abdullah Al-Enazi, Chief Executive Officer, SPMC. "To truly deliver on our growth targets, we need a platform that can serve as a scalable enabler of innovation in real-time, and that brings with it the flexibility and simplicity that only the Cloud can offer. The SAP HANA Cloud Platform is a one of a kind solution, and we are proud to be the first company in MENA to fully embrace what is undoubtedly cutting-edge and increasingly necessary technology."

"SPMC is showing great leadership by adopting Cloud computing on this scale," said Ahmed Al Faifi, Managing Director, SAP Saudi Arabia. "This is technology that will enable them to create entirely new experiences for their customers, empower employees at scale, optimise the use of resources, and unlock unprecedented value for their business."

The deployment will be carried out by SAP partner Data Links.
