Bahrain’s BNET Digitally Transforms with SAP to Optimize Broadband Experiences for Millions of Customers

BNET, Bahrain’s National Broadband Network, announced today a digital transformation partnership with global technology company SAP to take to the next level the broadband experiences for millions of customers.

MANAMA, Bahrain — 12 April 2020

Thanks to Bahrain’s nationwide digital transformation, led by Bahrain Vision 2030, the country leads the Arab World in the most value for money for fixed-broadband plans, at USD 0.6 per GB of data, according to the International Telecommunications Union’s most recent Measuring the Information Society report. Bahrain also ranks 6th in the Arab World for the fixed-broadband basket measuring overall broadband services.

Now, BNET aims to take Bahrain’s broadband to the next level with real-time innovations delivered by SAP running on the AWS cloud data center in Bahrain. Channel partner Seidor MENA will implement the project.

BNET will leverage the S/4HANA real-time business suite to gain full visibility and real-time network insights across its signal towers, network hubs, and fixed-line broadband and phone networks. As a result, BNET will be able to deliver higher-availability services and develop business and entertainment services.

“As part of our commitment to supporting Bahrain Vision 2030, our real-time solutions will support BNET in digitizing internal platforms and processes to transform customer experiences,” said Reham Almusa, Managing Director, SAP Bahrain. “By listening, understanding, and acting on customer experiences with broadband services, BNET is ideally-positioned to deliver the next-generation services that support business innovation, consumer happiness, and diversified economic growth.”

Supporting the workforce of the future, BNET will use the SuccessFactors Human Capital Management suite to find, train, and retain hundreds of employees. BNET is also eagerly recruiting the top Bahraini women engineers and business experts, aligned with nationwide goals of empowering women in the workforce.

The SAP solution was expertly implemented by Seidor MENA, the region’s systems integrator and digital transformation champion, who will also provide ongoing support to ensure the availability and performance of the platform. Ignacio Ruiz de Eguilaz, Managing Director, Seidor MENA said, “We are proud to be part of this world-class project that will serve to enhance digital experiences for businesses and consumers in Bahrain, as well as for BNET’s own workforce. BNET has demonstrated its commitment to being a market leader, and together with SAP, we are confident that we will be able to deliver the innovative technologies needed to support this ambition.”
