CLIENT CHALLENGE: Move a Fortune 500 top 10 Multinational Retail Corporation to Enterprise Planning Cloud

American Partners was tasked with guiding our client, who operates a chain of discount department stores and grocery stores, to migrate their environment to the Oracle Enterprise Cloud Platform.

ACTIONS AND SOLUTIONS DELIVERED: 

American Partners identified two highly qualified consultants who quickly became integrated members of the client’s workforce solution. As of February 2020, the consultants are leading the client team, integrating their current Oracle EPM footprint, and providing day to day support.

Starting with the package dimension we have modified the original implementation to do the following:

Optimization – American Partners is looking at methods to improve the current applications to address:

Training – American Partners consultants provide daily or weekly training on support techniques and best practices regarding new technology within the client’s platform.
