MTN has chosen Oracle Cloud Applications to drive a massive digital transformation across all its core business operations, and will help the telco to drive efficiency, scale operations and integration across its local and regional operations.
“MTN and Oracle partnered in 2018 to complete the design of the Oracle Cloud Applications. 2019 focuses on finalising the build and deploying across our markets,” says Belinda O’ Neil, executive boost at MTN.
The Oracle suite of cloud applications will also help MTN improve working capital through efficiencies in inventory management and reduce obsolescence.
The implementation will drive productivity through automation, self-service, IoT and mobile application capabilities; besides also enhancing management visibility across all business operations for real time performance measurement.
“With clear signs of economic recovery across key African markets, MTN’s decision to undertake large scale digital transformation will be instrumental in achieving strategic business objectives,” says Arun Khehar, senior vice-president: business applications for ECEMEA at Oracle. “We are confident that the deployment of the Oracle Cloud enabled digital core will help MTN deliver value for all stakeholders and create differentiation needed to achieve market leadership.”
MTN will implement Oracle Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP); Supply Chain Management (SCM); Enterprise Performance Management (EPM); Customer Experience (CX); Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Oracle Service Cloud solutions.
