Kill Complexity with Cloud ERP

By Margaret Harrist, Oracle Director of Content Strategy 

In today's quickly changing business landscape, complexity is an anchor weight that prevents companies from innovating. 

Executives at Khaleefa Butti Bin Omair (KBBO) Group, an Abu Dhabi–based investment firm, were determined to avoid that fate with the company's enterprise resource planning initiative—even as they looked for a single system that could span a portfolio of companies ranging from healthcare to oil and gas.

 As they looked for an ERP platform that could standardize the technology and processes in KBBO's many companies based in the UAE and the UK, the firm explored cloud ERP options at a time when few companies of KBBO's scale had moved in that direction. And in January 2015, KBBO moved its financials, HR, payroll, and procurement functions to the cloud.

Here, KBBO's director of IT discusses what drove the company's decision—and the many benefits, including that the IT staff's workload has been reduced by 40 percent.
