At Oracle Retail CrossTalk in Chicago in June, Thameem Rizvon, IT Director of KOJ Group, talked about how the company’s IT strategy enables this Middle East retail powerhouse to have double-digit growth each year.
Access the presentation to learn how the alignment between KOJ IT, KOJ business, and Oracle has resulted in rapid implementations, minimal customizations, and smooth change management. Because IT projects implemented at KOJ have the added complexity of being multilingual, an even closer alignment with business users is necessary.
In 2006, the KOJ Group had about 280 stores with 50 IT staff. Today, it has more than 650 stores and runs stable IT operations with just 32 IT staff. The presentation also included details on how KOJ Group rolled out Oracle Retail Point-of-Service and Oracle Retail Stores Inventory Management in over 625 stores in six countries in just 90 days.
Through the years, the KOJ Group has implemented a variety of Oracle hardware and software solutions including Oracle Retail Merchandising System, Oracle Retail Warehouse Management System, Oracle Retail Business Intelligence, Oracle Retail Application Server, Oracle E-Business Suite, and Oracle Fusion Performance Management.
