AST Corporation


For many years, the Church Pension Group (CPG) ran its business on Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) and Oracle Customer Data Hub (on premise). As part of its plans for future growth, CPG sought to modernize its enterprise applications by executing a leapfrog upgrade from EBS 11i to Oracle Cloud Applications (Sales Cloud, Service Cloud, and HCM Cloud).

CPG needed an experienced and trustworthy partner to guide them in this multi-phase upgrade of business-critical applications to a solution that is:

  • Business-process aware, with a sophisticated rules engine;
  • User-friendly, with enhanced data stewardship and governance;
  • Seamlessly integrated with cloud and on-premise applications;
  • Truly robust, with an enhanced deduplication engine and configurable cleansing and data quality rules; and
  • On “private cloud”, reducing ownership cost (infrastructure, scheduled maintenance, etc.).

AST was selected as the integrator-of-choice due to its experience with multi-pillar solutions and deep domain expertise with not-for-profit organizations.

Oracle Fusion Customer Data Management Cloud Service is fundamental to our up-grade to Oracle Fusion Applications. In just a short time, we have already improved data quality and stewardship, accelerated access to information, and set the stage for reducing IT complexity, while ensuring security.
