Qatar National Cement Company (QNCC) has signed a deal with global technology company SAP and implementation partner Mannai ICT that will enable it to leverage the benefits of cloud computing, with data securely hosted on Google Cloud.
The implementation will include S/4HANA, an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution that enables 360-degree visibility and control over all operations, and SAP Success Factors, which delivers innovative employee-management solutions.
The partnership will see QNCC automate and streamline business processes, while increasing the agility of its operations and enhancing the services it delivers to its customers and employees. The transformation will also optimise QNCC’s business value through RISE with SAP on Google Cloud and SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP), enabling the organisation to innovate, extend, and customise applications to become an intelligent sustainable enterprise.
Through hosting its mission critical data on Google Cloud, the cleanest cloud in the industry, QNCC is better positioned to achieve its sustainability strategy.
“In undertaking this end-to-end digital transformation, our aim is to modernise and streamline our systems, increase efficiencies, and enhance the services we deliver to our customers and employees,” says QNCC Chief Executive Officer, Engineer Essa Mohammed Ali A M Kaldari. “After implementation, our operations will be more agile and scalable, enabling us to capitalise on future opportunities in the market and region.”
Alaa Jaber, Managing Director for SAP Qatar and Fast Growth Markets, said: “Through this digital transformation, QNCC is aligning itself with Qatar’s 2030 National Vision and supporting its sustainability plans. It is also ensuring its future success by increasing its visibility over all operations, enabling it to react in an agile way to changes in the market and expected rise in demand for its products. Moreover, QNCC will be able to make decisions informed by real-time insights and data analytics.”
In implementing the SAP solutions, Mannai ICT, a division of Mannai Corporation, will take a greenfield approach to streamline and optimise QNCC’s digital landscape. Khalid Al Mannai, CEO of Mannai Corporation, says, “Having operated for more than 30 years in Qatar, supporting public institutions and private businesses in finding tailored technology solutions, Mannai Corporation is ideally placed to implement this project. We believe that the customised solution we have created will greatly enhance QNCC’s operations and ensure sustainable success.”
Ghassan Kosta, Qatar General Manager, Google Cloud, said: “The collaboration with Qatar’s largest cement manufacturer is a demonstration of our commitment to help develop Qatar’s digital future and drive digital transformation through our expertise. Google Cloud provides innovative tailormade solutions to customers across all sectors that accelerate their digital transformation, while empowering them to become more sustainable.”-- TradeArabia News Service
