First Solar leads the charge against climate change with help from Oracle Cloud

The global solar technology provider adopts Oracle Cloud Applications to optimize back-office functions and focus on creating a sustainable future.


We wanted to find a platform that could cover all our end-to-end processes and get stuff out of the data center, and Oracle checked that box. With all that, we also wanted to have a partner we could trust. Oracle listened, they helped, they advised, and that was a big reason we got to the point we’re at now.

First Solar is a global provider of eco-efficient solar modules. After years of growth, the company faced mounting technological debt after it divested business units to focus on what it does best—manufacturing and technology. After company leaders decided to exit the organization’s data centers and consolidate systems, they selected the fully integrated Oracle Cloud Applications suite. With the help of Accenture, First Solar revolutionized end-to-end processes across finance, HR, supply chain, and manufacturing to simplify its technology landscape, support employees across the business, and optimize operations to continue leading a sustainable energy future.
