Arab world can bridge the gap in quality management by upgrading IT systems
The Arab world's poor performance in quality control management, as exemplified in the low number of ISO 9000 certifications acquired by Arab countries, can be best met by adopting best-of-breed IT solutions that enhance productivity and employee performance across the enterprise, according to a BEA Systems Executive.
A recent study has revealed that Arab countries lag behind when it comes to ISO 9000 certifications, as compared to developed and developing nations. The Arab world has a dismal 0.77 percent share of the global ISO certifications, in sharp contrast to China's share of 13.49 percent.
“One of the most effective methods of streamlining management procedures and ensuring quality, is the adoption of automation across all departments of an enterprise, said Regional Manager of BEA Middle East and Egypt eSolutions, Diyaa Zebian. “However, outdated IT systems that cannot meet the enterprise's current and future needs, incompatible IT components that do not integrate perfectly into one whole, or inefficient IT management that cannot optimize the use of the company's IT systems often defeat the best of strategies.”
“The evolving needs of today's businesses demand a totally different approach when it comes to quality control management, because IT is now driving every aspect of business,” added Zebian. “However, judicious deployment of IT holds the key to success. It is the choice of the right IT system along with its optimal use that can ensure the highest return on investment.” — (menareport.com)
