Carlson is a family-owned hospitality and travel enterprise and one of the largest private companies in the world. It operates some of the industry’s most recognizable brands, including Radisson, Park Plaza, T.G.I. Fridays, and Carlson Wagonlit Travel. With more than 1,300 hotels in 100 countries and territories and 920 restaurants in 59 countries, Carlson is a world leader in the hospitality and travel industry.
Carlson looked to migrate its enterprise applications from its legacy, hosted-services provider to improve application performance and reduce costs. The company selected Oracle Managed Cloud Services after careful consideration.
“Oracle Managed Cloud Services delivered a compelling value proposition with top-to-bottom management of the entire Oracle stack. Oracle knows its solutions best, and we saw a more direct path to issue resolution as well as more in-depth knowledge,” said Brian Kraft, director, financial and human resource systems, Carlson. “We were very pleased with our initial migration and looked to Oracle when we were ready to move and upgrade our PeopleSoft applications. We have been very pleased with the value and expertise that Oracle Managed Cloud Services delivers.”
“Oracle’s expertise, commitment, and flexibility enabled us to migrate Oracle E-Business Suite and Oracle Hyperion to Oracle Managed Cloud Services in just five months, and our PeopleSoft applications, including an upgrade to 9.1, in just nine months,” Kraft said. “Oracle Managed Cloud Services provided exceptional value at every stage of the process.
