“With the rolling out of a hyper-connected smart grid and metering technology, the ability to react in real-time to immense volumes of complex data becomes unavoidable. DEWA is well on its way to meeting these challenges, and this is precisely why innovations like SAP HANA and SAP Business Suite on HANA are so compelling.”
“Everything DEWA does is geared towards delivering a better, more sustainable service for our customers and society – both now and for generations to come,” added Bin Haider, whose organisation delivers electricity and water to over 600,000 customers across the Emirate of Dubai.
“We accept nothing less than world class, and our future is entirely dependent on continuous, innovative improvement.”
Qais Gharaibeh, UAE Managing Director, SAP MENA, said:
“Business Suite on HANA is a massive calling card for SAP in the UAE. This is a country where business is starting to move at incredible speed and data is growing at a relentless rate. To do nothing is to lose out. SAP is committed to partner with UAE businesses to enhance their ability to react in real time, to dive into oceans of Big Data and emerge with true insight, and to benefit from new technologies like cloud, mobility, and in-memory computing. “
“This is not about keeping pace with the competition, it is about outpacing them,” explained Gharaibeh.
“It is not about having information – it is about having the right information to act at the right time. By accelerating core processes like never before, SAP Business Suite on HANA creates smarter business innovations, faster business processes and simpler business interactions to unlock a new era of opportunity.”
Farid Al Sabbagh, Managing Director, Fujitsu Technology Solutions Middle East, said:
“Business Suite on HANA is a real turning-point for the industry and, crucially, one that can be delivered without disruption. Hundreds of customers around the world already count on Fujitsu’s SAP solutions, and we are now bringing to the UAE the best in class infrastructure for SAP HANA, which has already deployed successfully in various countries around the Middle East.’’
Lee Allcorn, of IBM Systems and Technology Group at IBM Middle East and Africa, said:
“Today, clients are transforming their front offices to become globally integrated enterprises. Real-time business processes and capabilities promise differential advantages as part of these transformation efforts. To help clients maximize return with SAP HANA, IBM is working on consulting skills, scalable infrastructure technology development and co-innovation with SAP.”
