Major UK Council consolidates core business processes, including finance, HR and procurement with Infosys Oracle Cloud Services and Oracle Fusion Applications
London, United Kingdom – November 1, 2021
Infosys (NSE, BSE, NYSE: INFY), a global leader in next-generation digital services and consulting, today announced East Sussex County Council has selected Infosys as its implementation partner to modernize critical business systems and accelerate its transition to the cloud with Oracle Cloud Fusion Applications Suite.
East Sussex County Council provides services used by all residents in East Sussex, including providing care and support to children, families and the elderly and maintaining the roads, as well as focusing on producing excellent results for its residents. To ensure that it can continue to deliver excellent services to its residents into the future, the council recognized the need to modernize its existing legacy systems to take advantage of the efficiencies cloud platforms will provide.
The Council will deploy Oracle Fusion Applications for finance, procurement and human resources. Oracle’s integrated cloud platform will enable it to make its HR processes more efficient and improve the staff experience; improve sourcing and supplier management processes; and enhance and automate financial processes to increase operational efficiency, create inter-departmental synergies, and optimize the delivery of employee and citizen public services.
The project will be implemented by Infosys Oracle Cloud Services, part of Infosys Cobalt, which brings together strategy consulting, cloud offerings and managed services capabilities to support public sector digital transformation initiatives to accelerate cloud journeys.
Oracle Fusion Applications, including Oracle Fusion Cloud Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Oracle Fusion Cloud Procurement, Oracle Fusion Cloud Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) and Oracle Fusion Cloud Human Capital Management (HCM), will enable East Sussex County Council to break down organizational silos, standardize administrative processes, and securely manage finance, procurement and HR data on a single integrated IT platform.
Phil Hall, Chief Operating Officer, East Sussex County Council said “By connecting and rationalizing our business processes across functions, we are able to more quickly resolve internal process gaps and delays, realize significant efficiencies across departments, and refocus our resources on providing the best possible service to our residents. In Oracle and Infosys, we have partners that understand how local government works and the unique challenges we face.”
Dinesh Rao, Executive Vice President and Global Head, Enterprise Application Services, Infosys said “Infosys is honored to be selected by East Sussex County Council together with Oracle to help them navigate a strategic cloud transformation journey that will modernize legacy applications and drive future readiness. We have successfully delivered Oracle Cloud applications by harnessing the collaborative strength of our partnership, mutually deep public sector expertise in the UK and the power of Infosys Cobalt offerings. We look forward to enabling East Sussex County Council drive greater service experience to its residents.”
Guy Armstrong, Senior Vice President of applications, Oracle UK and Ireland said "Government organizations like East Sussex County Council are taking on expanded and more complex remits while having to be more resource-efficient—do more with less—and meet higher service expectations from their residents. With Oracle Fusion Applications the Council now has an integrated business platform that can help it meet both its current and future needs, and better service its staff and constituents."
