Business challenges

Alithya offers IT strategy and digital transformation services for critical enterprise systems. The company wanted a single technology solution to address the challenges presented by rapid growth and the need to bring new companies into the fold quickly.

The consulting firm had multiple, home-grown solutions, aside from Oracle E-Business Suite. With ongoing merger and acquisition efforts, Alithya needed a solution that could help integrate new companies into its existing platforms and scale to meet the complexity of thousands of employees worldwide with multicurrency and multilingual needs. The company realized that its needs were the same as its customers’, so it sought a system that it could recommend and implement for its clients as well.

Why Alithya chose Oracle

Alithya ultimately selected Oracle for its entire back-office suite—Oracle Fusion Cloud ERP, EPM, and HCM—because it believed that Oracle applications would help support the company and its customers well into the future. Oracle Cloud Applications would also offer a modern and scalable solution that would provide visibility and accelerate decision-making across the enterprise.


After selecting Oracle Cloud, the firm was able to go live with the Oracle modules in just 10 months. With the consolidation of systems onto one cloud solution, the company’s global professional services organization gained visibility across the organization, boosted productivity, improved executive decision-making, and enhanced security. With better access to data, Alithya can more easily integrate acquisitions into the core business.

Alithya has been a longtime Oracle partner and customer and enjoys a close relationship with the product team at Oracle. To accelerate its Oracle applications implementation, Alithya created a proprietary automated testing tool, Alithya GoTest, to ensure the applications’ quarterly updates would be successful before they were deployed. The company now offers Alithya GoTest to Oracle clients for Oracle Cloud projects and managed services. 

One of the greatest benefits of using Oracle Cloud Applications was that employees were able to work from home during the pandemic without any disruption to projects and deadlines.

Since upgrading its legacy systems, Alithya has been able to complete multiple mergers and acquisitions without disruption to the business, leading to double-digit growth. Additionally, the company’s advisors are now better equipped to support their clients in achieving business goals through innovation and digital transformation.
