Microsoft yesterday announced that Bahrain International Circuit, the home of motorsport in the Middle East, has migrated its core business and financial systems to Microsoft Cloud.
In collaboration with Microsoft’s systems integration partner ACME, BIC migrated business functions such as financials, supply chain, and procurement to Microsoft’s cloud-based Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations while the HR and payroll models are in progress.
The implementation resulted in near-zero downtimes, involved total data migration and configuration to Bahraini localisation in line with Bahrain’s cloud-first policy.
“We were able to achieve enhanced productivity from an always-on solution that lived in the cloud,” said Sanjeewa Karunatilake, Finance Director, Bahrain International Circuit.
“The Dynamics 365 cloud platform helped deliver a twin boost to both team performance and productivity through real-time data analysis and reporting capabilities supercharged by advanced visualisation tools offered by Microsoft PowerBI technology.
We also make significant costs savings because of less complexity in management and maintenance, along with faster turnarounds and upgrades.”
Microsoft partner Almoayyed Computers Middle East supported BIC in its implementation of Dynamics 365.
“We are proud to be associated with the Home of Motorsport in the Middle East and to support BIC’s vision to be a regional leader in digital transformation,” said SM Hussaini, CEO of Almoayyed Computers Middle East.
“Digital transformation is a key component towards achieving sustainable business and services,” said Sheikh Saif Hilal Al Hosni, Country Manager, Microsoft Bahrain & Oman.
“In line with the aspirations of Bahrain Vision 2030 and the iGA’s Cloud-First Policy, BIC can now look forward to enhanced agility, greater security, high availability and lower costs across its core business functions.”
