Harris Corporation, an international communications and information technology company, serves government, defense, and commercial markets. With its three segments, Harris serves markets for radio frequency communications, integrated network solutions, and government communications systems, providing customers with assured communications and information technology wherever and whenever they need it, with the highest levels of performance and reliability.
Like many companies in the high technology industry, Harris Corporation is focused on cutting expenses and improving efficiency. By reducing the number of software deployments across the enterprise, the company can optimize its technology budget. Oracle’s AutoVue Electro-Mechanical Professional 20.1.1 has played a significant role, as Harris has been able to eliminate several viewing tools in favor of the easy-to-use, robust AutoVue solution. With the solution, hundreds of employees have instant Web-based access to product information and data, and with the integration to Oracle’s Agile product lifecycle management applications, Harris Corporation has a single record of authority for all product development, procurement, and design information.
“We have a really strong relationship with the Oracle engineering team,” said Charlie Davies, principal ECAE applications engineer, Harris Corporation. “When we see a need that’s not being met by the AutoVue product, we work with Oracle to see what we can do, and they listen. Oracle is a truly collaborative partner, and our relationship is very important to us.”
Harris Corporation first implemented Oracle’s AutoVue Electro-Mechanical Professional in 2006. It has completed all implementations and upgrades in house, including the most recent upgrade to AutoVue Electro-Mechanical Professional 20.1.1. Harris is currently evaluating AutoVue 20.2 and planning a future upgrade to this version.
