Business Situation

Abu Dhabi University (ADU) was established in 2003 to provide undergraduate and postgraduate programs in a wide range of studies. In the higher organization sector it is not easy to support the operational and financial planning process. However, until recently, ADU had no integrated system for budget analysis and execution, relying exclusively on Excel sheets.


Azdan helped ADU to implement Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) solution to improve the core process of planning and forecasting. the university now eliminates time-consuming, error-prone spreadsheets where a missing formula or a mistaken data assumption could require days to re-run profitability and cost calculations.


Abu Dhabi University Meets the Goals of Its Five-Year Strategic Plan with Sophisticated Forecasting Accuracy and Optimized Budget Execution. The university reduced its budgeting and reporting cycle by more than 60%.
