Oracle Implementation for a Global Engineering Company

NTT DATA helped a leading life sciences company with the Rollout of Finance and HCM EBS modules for a firm they had recently acquired and wanted to unify the operational processes within it.

Business Problem

The client, a world leader in diversified engineering solutions, had acquired a Trivandrum (India) based IT company. The client wanted to standardize the IT landscape - the newly acquired company was using legacy systems whereas its parent company was using Oracle EBS.

The Oracle EBS financial and HCM modules had to be rolled out to 6 legal entities (India, Singapore, Japan, etc.) of the acquired company.

Solution

NTT DATA successfully implemented the rollout of Finance and HCM Oracle E-Business suite modules while meeting the challenge of aligning the rollout with the client’s overall IT migrations.

  • NTT had templates ready for data conversion from their legacy system to Oracle EBS, which helped jump-start the activity
  • Executed multiple iterations in non-production instances to improve the client’s data quality during data conversion
  • The formats for the invoices had to be customized and re-written to meet the acquired company’s existing format

Migrated year-end balances to the new system and opened the system for use from the new financial year.

Created audio/video training material using Adobe captivate for users for commonly used process tools like iExpenses and HRMS self-service system.

Results

NTT DATA’s solution thus helped the client in accomplishing the following:

  • Retired legacy applications like Navision, CRM, etc. and established a common EBS solution across the entire business, thereby streamlining business operations
  • The automated and more streamlined Oracle EBS provided benefits of staff optimization, leading to IT cost reduction
  • Helped simplify the IT administration and maintenance, reducing both effort and cost
