Situation

The California Department of General Services (DGS) serves the State of California by providing a centralized services to State agencies through procurement and acquisition solutions, real estate management, transportation, administrative hearings & legal services, and more.

DGS was using an on-premises deployment of Oracle E-Business Suite for Financials, HR, Payroll and custom time & labor, which was resulting in performance issues, limited availability and storage, and lack of a disaster recovery solution. DGS needed to deploy modern infrastructure to achieve its specific goals and better serve its customers and citizens. The department needed to:

  • Reduce downtime and improve provisioning, availability, and storage issues;
  • Achieve high availability and performance;
  • Establish appropriate disaster recovery;
  • Replace or upgrade aging hardware to cloud infrastructure that is more elastic and scalable;
  • Limit upfront capital costs and increase ROI.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure ensures improved application performance, high availability, reliability, and a completely scalable infrastructure for the client.”
