Pinellas County, with a population of approximately 1 million residents, is a county located on Florida’s Gulf Coast. Pinellas forms a peninsula bounded on the west by the Gulf of Mexico and on the south and east by Tampa Bay, forming Florida's second-smallest county after Union County. The county seat is Clearwater, and St. Petersburg is the county’s largest city.
Pinellas County has a large Oracle footprint and understands the value proposition that it delivers in terms of providing best-in-class solutions from a single vendor. This philosophy held true when the company selected its Oracle E-Business Suite and Oracle Hyperion solutions.
Oracle Exalytics In-Memory Machine delivered a similar value proposition and did not require the county to build new core competencies. In addition, Oracle Advanced Customer Support Services and Oracle Exalytics Start-Up Pack inspired further confidence.
Oracle Advanced Customer Support Services worked with the county to install Oracle Exalytics in five days. Oracle’s onsite advisor enabled the team to gain rapid competency on the system, accelerate time to value, and optimize its impact.
