Oracle Announces New Oracle Accelerate for Midsize Companies Solution with HP through Oracle Consulting

To help midsize industrial manufacturing companies streamline their IT implementations, Oracle and HP have launched the HP and Oracle Consulting Accelerate Solution for Industrial Manufacturing. 

This validated Oracle Accelerate solution offers complete hardware, software and services to help midsize industrial manufacturers effectively manage and grow their businesses. Consisting of the Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 pre-loaded on HP infrastructure hardware, and created and delivered by Oracle Consulting, the HP and Oracle Consulting Accelerate Solution for Industrial Manufacturing is designed specifically for midsize U.S. businesses with limited resources. This collaborative effort between the two industry leaders provides a scalable, affordable solution with a predictable price, scope and timeline, minimizing the complexity and risk of an IT investment decision.

The solution is targeted at midsize discrete manufacturing companies based in the U.S. (either with national or international operations).  The solution is best for companies that are on older, or "obsolete" software and hardware, or that have multiple disparate systems requiring integrations and high support costs, or they need to update due to limitations of their existing applications (for example, web enablement, reporting - sales, financial and/or regulatory, etc.), or they are growing and their applications cannot support them, or they are looking at acquisitions and again they need more robust systems to tie or modernize their operations.

According to Oracle, the solution gives midsize companies a competitive advantage, by simplifying their manufacturing, distribution, sales and accounting processes, thereby reducing their operational costs while improving ROI.  A down market is the best time to grow market share; having a strong backbone in place quickly will allow them to focus on that growth.

The new Accelerate Solution is built on HP's HP BladeSystem infrastructure and HP StorageWorks Modular Smart Arrays.  A range of hardware configurations are available based on the number of Oracle E-Business Suite users. Pre-loaded and pre-configured at HP Factory Express, this offering helps reduce the length of the implementation cycle and accelerate time to value and return on investment.  The complete solution is pre-configured, tested, and shipped in just a few weeks enabling a more rapid return on investment. The solution includes on-site hardware set-up and application-specific technical support during implementation.

Oracle Accelerate for Midsize Companies combines Oracle Applications and Business Accelerators with industry- and geography-specific deployment expertise to solve business problems in highly targeted and rapidly deployable packages. Oracle Business
