QIG picks Rise with SAP for transition to Cloud in-country

DOHA, May 15, 2024

Qatari Investors Group (QIG) has signed a partnership with global technology company SAP SE that will enable it to leverage the benefits of SAP’s cloud ERP solution, with data securely hosted in Qatar.
QIG will move its mission-critical business processes from its legacy on-premises ERP software systems to SAP S/4HANA Cloud, an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution that enables 360-degree visibility and greater control over all operations. 
The move will be accelerated through the adoption of RISE with SAP, a comprehensive subscription offering regular updates to make QIG more resilient and agile in today’s rapidly changing global market. 
Creating a roadmap
Joseph Abdo, Chief Executive Officer of QIG, explains: “QIG worked closely with SAP to create a roadmap that is aligned with the country’s digital transformation agenda and Qatar’s National Vision 2030. We also wanted to ensure that we had real-time data and insights to respond rapidly to changes in the market, while delivering greater value to our customers. With RISE with SAP Cloud, we can transition to cloud without business risk, while gaining advantages from automated processes that allow us to concentrate on innovation and growth. 
“We will see immediate benefits, such as streamlined operations and increased efficiencies, while setting ourselves up for long-term success, with automatic upgrades to new technologies and a scalable and flexible digital infrastructure.” 
Deep expertise
A key motivator for QIG in selecting SAP as its digital transformation partner was SAP’s deep expertise in multiple industries, and the ease of establishing an integrated platform to manage diverse operations. QIG’s subsidiaries and business interests include building and construction materials and services – such as the group’s flagship project, Al Khalij Cement Company – as well as technology, marine services, property, project development, contracting and financial services. 
Alaa Jaber, Managing Director for SAP, Qatar and Fast Growth Markets, commented: “In an intensely competitive market, QIG is known for being futuristic in outlook and effective in management, and this digital transformation is a prime example of this approach. RISE with SAP enables customers to adapt to fast-changing conditions, from rapidly evolving AI applications to cybersecurity threats. The deployment will make QIG increasingly resilient, efficient, and agile, while also allowing it to innovate more quickly and easily.”--TradeArabia News Service
