The leading UAE-based company deployed the Hyperion solution to increase productivity, streamline business processes and manage growth across its global operations.
PR9.NET March 14, 2007 - Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Hyperion today announced that Darwish Bin Ahmed & Sons Co (DBA), a leading UAE-based business conglomerate with diversified businesses, has deployed Hyperion System 9 to enhance performance, streamline business processes, save time and costs on operations and in turn increase productivity. DBA Group is using Hyperion as a comprehensive solution for planning, consolidation, reporting and analysis across its wide-spread operations.
Darwish Bin Ahmed & Sons Co (DBA), which was established in 1965, has diversified businesses such as Distribution of Heavy Equipment, Trucks, Air-conditioning, Heating & Automotive components, Real Estate, Hospitality, Travel & Tourism, Construction, and Information Technology to name a few. DBA Group re-engineered its vision and mission in the mid-nineties to increase its role in the Global economy by setting its sights on international markets and expanding its operations worldwide. The Group has seen a growth of more than 50% each year over the previous year in both domestic and international businesses. DBA has a network of distribution channel partners in 35 countries and overseas offices in Moscow, Kiev, Almaty, Tashkent and Bangalore.
"DBA strongly believes that technology is a driving factor for growth. Our company invested millions on a sound IT Infrastructure, built on a world-class ERP Solution and Hyperion's Business Intelligence and Planning Tools, to support our independent business units," said Mr. Narasimha Rao, Chief Information Officer, DBA & Sons Group. "Our Enterprise demands only the best-of-breed applications that align with our vision and help us drive our business. Very few solutions have the breadth and depth that Hyperion System 9 offers. Hyperion's unique ability to integrate financial management, consolidation, planning and data quality management into a unified solution made it the clear choice for DBA," he added.
"DBA is an existing customer of Hyperion and was using its Business Intelligence solutions across the organization. In order to realize their objectives of establishing a standard framework that would enable the company to manage performance, track and report financial results with confidence and meet the requirements of its many business units across geographies, DBA made the decision to move to Hyperion System9 platform," Mr. Hisham Malak, Channel & Marketing Manager' HSME, Hyperion's Middle East Distributor explained.
Hyperion System 9, the industry's most comprehensive performance management solution, leverages the unique technology in its Foundation Services layer to integrate BI technologies and financial management applications into a single unified system. For the first time, formerly dissimilar activities such as management and production reporting, advanced analytics, financial reporting and consolidation, enterprise planning, scorecarding and strategic modeling are all accessible through the Hyperion System 9 workspace, the first personalized workspace for Business Performance Management.
Commenting on the benefits of Hyperion System 9, Mr. Rao said, " We had already achieved returns on our investment with our existing Hyperion's BI solution. However, System 9, a major release from Hyperion, had immense additional feature enhancements that would enable end users do their own reporting. With this upgrade, our end-users have easy access to data and analysis in real time from anywhere."
"Being a huge group with multiple lines of business each with its own unique process means multiple systems with complex functionalities. Hyperion has provided management and executives with powerful insights into the business enabling them to make better-informed decisions and to continuously identify areas to improve performance. All our business decisions rely on the information and analytics provided by Hyperion." Mr. Darwish, Director of DBA & Sons said "Hyperion System 9 platform has given us a 360° view on Corporate Performance anytime anywhere and we can now establish key initiatives and align all efforts as a whole to achieve the desired results." he added.
