Sharjah Asset Management selects du as SAP cloud partner
du will provide a complete 360-degree solution to boost growth and operations at Sharjah Asset Management
du has announced a seven-year agreement with Sharjah Asset Management (SAM) to fully integrate SAP asset management software solutions.
The agreement will help SAM manage critical business processes and operations hosted in du's private cloud.
du will help SAM to efficiently manage the entire asset lifecycle with enterprise asset management software from SAP. This will enable SAM to reduce costs, manage capital expenditures, and ultimately maximise return on assets including fixed property, plant, and equipment.
du's managed cloud solutions of SAP are structured so that customers can use operating funds instead of capital funds for their technology purchases, therefore spreading payments over the life of the solution rather than making a complete payment up front. This solves the primary issue with traditional implementations, whereby customers have several different contracts and several different parties to negotiate with for a single solution.
"With this solution, one size does not have to fit all and our customers can tailor their plan to fit their needs," said Farid Faraidooni, chief operations officer at du. "With du's managed cloud, Sharjah Asset Management can hold just one contract covering all aspects of the solution, including software, infrastructure, maintenance, and ongoing management services."
Ibrahim Al Houti, chief officer for Support Services of SAM said: "We are pleased to join forces with du, whose services will further enhance our business objectives. This deal will further help us transform our business to digital so that we are able to better serve our customers in real time."
