Ma'aden will use Oracle's Gen 2 Cloud software to modernise its IT infrastructure, with the aim of creating a more agile and cost-effective system, the company said.

"Cloud-led transformation is an imperative for our organisation to scale operations swiftly, drive innovation, create a real-time view of all our resources and projects, ensure cost efficiency and implement robust security measures for business continuity," said Arif Mustafa, group chief information officer for Ma'aden.

The Oracle's Gen 2 Cloud system will provide Ma'aden with AI-based analytics and data management tools, with more than 9,000 employees benefitting.

"Gen 2 Cloud is a perfect platform for enterprises like Ma'aden to replace their on-premises data centres with a cloud deployment model to achieve strategic business objectives," said Fahad Al Turief, Oracle country leader for Saudi Arabia.
