Blue Shield of California standardized on Oracle Fusion Cloud applications, including Oracle Cloud ERP
running on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure
. One of the company’s top selection criteria was a solution that could move the organization forward, from the scalability and security of its applications, to the continuous innovations delivered in quarterly updates across a unified suite. Since selecting Oracle several years ago, Blue Shield of California has moved into new areas such as subsidiaries to support providers, and Oracle’s unified platform has helped enable that through the creation of a center of excellence to ensure that its ERP and HCM applications operate in a consistent manner.
Standardizing on Oracle Cloud better prepared Blue Shield of California to support a workforce that was suddenly working remotely, such as the finance team closing the books while working from home. The Oracle Cloud suite of applications also provides a single source of truth for operating data, which has helped Blue Shield of California’s finance team become a vital partner in the company’s response to COVID-19, and a strategic business partner evaluating and funding new innovations, acquisitions, and other growth initiatives
