Ausenco Supports Global Expansion with Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 and Oracle Enterprise Performance Management and Business Intelligence

Sydney, AUSTRALIA – April 7, 2011

News Facts
• Global engineering and project management company Ausenco has selected Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1, Oracle Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) and Oracle Business Intelligence (BI) to provide a technology platform to underpin the company’s global expansion.
• Ausenco, headquartered in Brisbane, Australia has more than 2,500 people based in 20 countries and delivers engineering and project management services for the environment, energy, minerals and metals, process infrastructure, and program management sectors. The company faced a number of business challenges as its existing applications weren’t optimal or suitable for its global operations.
• As a rapidly growing organisation, Ausenco needed a solution that was flexible, robust and easy to roll out across different countries, for users with varying needs and expectations. Accordingly, Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1, Oracle EPM and BI are being implemented which will enable Ausenco to integrate all aspects of the company’s business including financials, project management, asset management, maintenance, procurement, HR, payroll, reporting and analysis.
• In addition to supporting Ausenco’s global expansion and integrating complex operations, Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1, Oracle EPM and BI will also enable improved efficiency and consistency in decision making for the company. Information will be available to managers across the company’s business lines, with multiple entries of data to be replaced by a single streamlined source of information.
• Ausenco has selected Oracle Database 11g and Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g to support the overall deployment.
• The Oracle implementation will take a phased approach over a three-year period and will begin in mid 2011. Ausenco will roll out Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 across Asia Pacific/Africa and North and South America. In the short term the solution will provide Ausenco improved control of financial and reporting processes at the company’s Head Office in Brisbane.
• To reduce implementation discovery, configuration and testing time, Oracle Platinum Partner CSG will employ Oracle Business Accelerators (OBA). OBA will help to ensure a predictable and precise enterprise-wide implementation that guides the project scope and uses industry best practices decision flows.
