QIG selects Rise with SAP for accelerated transition to Cloud in-country


Qatari Investors Group (QIG) is set to transition its mission-critical business processes from its traditional on-premises ERP software systems to the SAP S/4HANA Cloud. This enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution will provide QIG with 360-degree visibility and enhanced control over its operations. To facilitate this transformation, QIG has signed a partnership agreement with SAP SE. The adoption of SAP’s cloud ERP solution will see data securely hosted within Qatar.

To expedite this transition, QIG will utilize RISE with SAP, a comprehensive subscription service. This offering includes regular updates, ensuring that QIG remains resilient and agile in response to the rapidly evolving global market. Through this move, QIG aims to leverage the benefits of modern cloud technology to enhance its operational efficiency and maintain a competitive edge.

Joseph Abdo, Chief Executive Officer, 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.”

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.”

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.
