Oracle Database Appliance has improved the performance of our Oracle E-Business Suite up to 30%. We have saved significant time and boosted employee productivity now that we can perform patching, upgrades, and backups online.
Alamar Foods knows a thing or two about growth. In 1991, the company was a three-store Domino’s Pizza franchisee. Today, Alamar is a master franchise operator for Domino’s pizza with more than 300 locations in the Middle East, North Africa, and Pakistan (MENAP). The company added two additional business units: Premier Foods, a meat-processing factory; and most recently, several Dunkin Donuts franchise locations in Egypt.
While Alamar Foods was satisfied with their legacy Oracle server, Oracle Sun Solaris and SPARC performance, the aging system did not solve for the performance and high availability the company needed. Instead of adding new hardware and software, Alamar decided to bring in a single solution of new hardware with better capabilities.
We chose Oracle Database Appliance because it covers all the performance and availability requirements we need. There is a single point of support so if we face any problem, we open one ticket, and Oracle solves it. Our employees don’t experience downtime or slow performance due to maintenance or upgrades.
Headquartered in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Alamar Foods operates more than 300 Domino’s Pizza stores across 11 countries throughout the Middle East, North Africa, and Pakistan (MENAP) region. Alamar has built a solid position in the MENAP quick service restaurant industry and is expanding as a diversified food and beverage group. To support Alamar Foods’ retail division, the company established Premier Foods, which supplies 15 globally renowned food brands and exports to 10 countries.
Alamar Foods’ IT team deployed Oracle Database Appliance successfully on its own. The company then worked with Oracle Platinum Partner KPIT to migrate all data to the appliance. The migration was completed smoothly with no awareness of the move from old to new servers by professional users and customers.
