“Frequently, companies with very complex visions run into problems aligning different initiatives to that particular strategy and communicating that vision to the stakeholders to gain consensus going forward,” says Harry Ghuman, Oracle’s group vice president for industry strategy. “So, if somebody can help create one consensus document that lets stakeholders see what their roles are and when they will get the things they need, that will prove critical for success.”
The Oracle Insight team came through with a thought-leadership report that delineates the challenges and trends facing the public sector, and how the State of Delaware’s approach has vaulted the state’s initiative to the front of the pack. The report is just one step in the Oracle Insight team’s ongoing partnership, says Hersey-Miller. “The report helped us communicate our vision and progress across a broad spectrum of stakeholders,” she says. The Oracle Insight team has also tackled a follow-up effort that involves extensive business user interviews to identify common business processes, what applications support them, and how they can be integrated.
