Read on to learn how a United States energy giant achieved an end-to-end Cloud transformation of its operations with AST and Oracle ERP/EPM Cloud.
At Home in the Cloud with AST and Oracle
Business operations at a leading energy organization were partly supported by an 18-year old legacy system. The accounting, supply chain, and key business operations involved several stages of manual intervention and no longer met the client’s business requirements. The intense manual effort involved in back-office operations made month- and year-end activities incredibly inefficient and nearly impossible.
The client required a complete transformation of its business operations by replacing the legacy ERP system with a modern cloud platform. The client needed a solution to automate and streamline its business processes and provide significant improvements through the reduction of manual transactions and integration complexity across the enterprise, while also providing the adaptability for future growth and technology.
AST’s cross-pillar expertise and specific industry knowledge with ERP transformation led the client to select AST as its partner of choice. AST performed a detailed assessment of the challenges faced by the organization with its existing ERP system, proposing Cloud roadmaps that addressed all challenges.
AST recommended more than 30 Oracle Cloud products be implemented across Oracle ERP Cloud, Oracle HCM Cloud, Oracle SCM Cloud, and Oracle Planning & Budgeting Cloud Service, proving to be the right fit to modernize business operations for the energy firm.
The following is a summary of the value realized by the client by partnering with AST:
- Functional and technical implementation support for
all Oracle Cloud ERP products
- Creation of a SaaS/PaaS solution to support order-to-cash requirements unique to the industry
- Creation of interfaces with third-party partners, including Sentric, Merrill Lynch, Morneau Sheppell & Morgan Stanley, Landworks, B2B for iSupplier, and more
- Collaboration with cross-functional teams on integration solutions
- Writing, review, and execution of test scenarios, cases, and scripts
- Execution of quality assurance from test definition through assessment
AST’s cross-pillar knowledge and deep ERP transformation expertise led the client to replace its aging legacy ERP system with modern Oracle Cloud Applications, attaining its goals of automated, streamlined, and efficient accounting and business operations, and finding its home in the cloud.
