EMEA construction industry receives special Oracle recognition

By Leah Netabai

With the construction industry facing numerous challenges, Oracle shines a light on its customers who are reimagining the industry through technology.

Within the MEA region there has been a heavy focus on digital transformation and economic development, with numerous initiatives, partnerships and accelerator programmes being established in order to foster this growth. 

Current challenges faced by the industry include: growing project complexity, rising competition, fragmented project supply chains and increasing risk. Those who received Oracle’s Construction and Engineering Excellence Awards demonstrated compelling results to overcome these challenges using Oracle's Construction and Engineering solution suite.

We congratulate the honourees and are thrilled to recognise their accomplishments.”
