20 Jun InfoTech provides robust support service to Al Ain Zoo in Al Ain, UAE
The late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan founded Zoo & Aquarium Public Institution In Al Ain in 1968. Al Ain Zoo provides entertainment and learning experiences for children and adults in a natural outdoor environment. Today, visitors of all ages discover the zoo’s vision of creating natural habitats for animals to live freely. Al Ain Zoo has become a center for endangered species conservation, most notably the successful breeding of desert antelopes and gazelles, such as the endangered Arabian Oryx which has give the zoo a reputation for excellence and leadership in the international conservation community. Al Ain Zoo is a proud member of the World Association of Zoos and Aquaria (WAZA), and has set up a number of strategic partnerships with leading zoos conservation agencies and associations globally.
With an eye to greater efficiency and building a technological foundation for achieving its strategic objectives Al Ain Zoo implemented Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS). Oracle EBS is the most comprehensive suite of integrated, global business applications that enable organizations to make better decisions, reduce costs, and increase performance. However the configuration of this suite was not up to industry best practices, which meant Al Ain Zoo was not getting the business benefits it needed.
InfoTech organized its team of Oracle certified functional consultants and did a deep dive into Al Ain Zoo’s relevant processes. Using a process centric approach instead of a modular approach we then instituted a configuration based on industry best practices. InfoTech complemented that with its proven support methodology and infrastructure utilizing an agile offsite and onsite team combination. The results were instantaneous with Al Ain Zoo reducing key metrics like procurement and recruitment cycle.
