SAIE awards IT systems and management contracts for new MRO operation
Saudia Aerospace Engineering Industries (SAEI) has signed a number of new agreements for the development of operations systems engineering and aircraft maintenance and infrastructure required to manage programs and automated systems to develop maintenance procedures and operations.
The Jeddah-based MRO business has selected Swiss Aviation Software to supply its AMOS software. AMOS consists of seven highly interlinked core modules that are prerequisites for the system’s data quality and reliability. Written in pure Java, AMOS is hardware independent, fully web-enabled, and does not need any external software components, except for the database.
Over the past few years, AMOS has been the most widely used MRO software in Europe but is now rapidly expanding to global MRO operations. Swiss Aviation Software was developed iout of the airline Crossair and latterly Swiss airlines.
Nader Khalawi, SAEI’s chief executive said the contract with the Swiss firm is one key component in the $800m implementation of a new maintenance workshop facility in Jeddah.
Khalawi praised the new system saying the infrastructure associated with the AMOS is “the latest and best, reached by the techniques of Oracle Corporation specializing in databases and operating platforms and Cisco Systems Connectivity and company Sonicwall systems which allows SAEI to control all required activities and the implementation of its work effectively and efficiently.”
In a further contract, SAEI appointed Hexaware Technologies Limited to develop and build a ‘Business Warehouse’ for data storage.
The management contract for the provision and processing infrastructure for the project has been placed with Solutions Computers Ltd. (HASOUB). HASOUB is to design and create systems to link and transfer network of centers of information using Cisco Nexus advanced systems, in addition to providing protection systems and access control of the network utilizing the next generation of hardware firewall developed known as (Super Massive) manufactured by "Dell Sonic wall " In addition to providing logistics support services and other technical solutions for the project.
HASOUB is one of the largest companies in the Middle East in the field of providing IT solutions information technology overall, providing company computer solutions for the hardware infrastructure and extensions of networks and provisioning projects, digital technology solutions engineering built where she works with several global partners in the field of digital technology such as company Cisco, Del, Kappa, Siemens, HP, Systemax and other leading companies in the world of digital technology and information technology.
