Founded in 1958, Al Naboodah Group Enterprises is among the most well-respected family enterprises in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Employing more than 16,000 people and over 40 nationalities, the group’s operations encompass construction and a diverse portfolio of businesses ranging from transportation and travel to electrical, lighting and furniture provision.
Strategic business projects are critical to the continued growth of Al Naboodah Group Enterprises. As a major conglomerate with a diverse range of entities, its projects range from launching new dealerships to opening operations in new geographies. Effective project and portfolio management is vital to the group’s success.
After a thorough evaluation of the market, Al Naboodah Group Enterprises decided to implement CA Project & Portfolio Management. The company worked closely with Ignite Technology, a specialist in CA Project & Portfolio Management and a preferred partner of CA Technologies, to deploy the solution as quickly and efficiently as possible.
All project information is now centrally stored and managed in CA Project & Portfolio Management, providing a single version of the truth as well as automated workflows and reporting. The group PMO no longer has to manually collate reports, assign tasks or close actions, while other users are benefitting from in-built best-practices and standards as well as greater sharing of knowledge and information. Better visibility of project status and resource requirements is also enabling other departments, such as IT and marketing, to plan ahead and ensure sufficient resources for their own involvement in business projects.
