Bahrain Airport Company rolls out new ICT software (Oracle Fusion) to improve efficiency

In line with ongoing efforts to progress with its digital transformation strategy, Bahrain Airport Company (BAC) has become the first company in the Kingdom to implement Oracle Soar, a programme designed to help businesses migrate applications to the cloud. This will support BAC’s transition to Oracle Fusion, a suite of new software applications that will improve efficiency and automate key business processes.

To mark the occasion, BAC held a ceremony attended by top management, including Chief Executive Officer Mohamed Yousif Al Binfalah, Oracle management, and key users. Mr Al Binfalah; Vice President of Information and Communications Technology, Najwa Abdulrahim; Vice President of Human Resources, Hind Mahmood; Vice President of Finance, Krishnan Manjapara; and Acting Manager of Procurement, Khalid Al Haddad received certificates of appreciation for helping to ensure the successful delivery of the project.

Mr Al Binfalah said: “Adapting to this cloud-based solution will play a key role in standardising and streamlining the Company’s human capital management, procurement, finance, consolidation and reporting processes while offering a modern user experience for Gulf Air Group Holding (GFG), BAC, Hala Bahrain, Bahrain Jet Fuel Company, and Gulf Handling Company. The new platform will enable BAC to reduce its IT infrastructure costs and improve business agility, helping to manage rapid business growth more effectively. It also supports our strategic objectives to modernise and digitise operations, increase scalability, and implement centralised shared services under GFG.”

He added: “Bahrain is taking confident steps towards becoming a leading financial hub in the region in line with its Economic Vision 2030. The future of the financial industry revolves around Fintech, and the Kingdom continues to demonstrate its aptitude in this area with the public and private sectors working proactively to adapt to the latest innovations. At BAC, we remain committed to investing in our information and communications technology capabilities, which, in turn, will enable us to keep pace the Kingdom’s ongoing digital transformation, and support BIA’s development through the Airport Modernisation Programme.”

Oracle Fusion is now the sole tool for all BAC employees to submit requests, eliminating the need for paperwork, and streamlining the approval process. Oracle Soar helps users shift to the cloud with time and cost reductions of up to 30 per cent. It also provides faster time to value, reduced risk, and increased transparency.

Earlier this year, BAC migrated its server to Amazon Web Services, positioning it alongside a growing number of Bahrain government entities shifting to the cloud platform.
