TruGreen selected Oracle Platinum Partner, Velocity Technology Solutions, as their cloud advisor, mapping the requirements of the organization with alternative public or private cloud solutions. Considering TruGreen’s goals and leveraging Velocity’s SMART™ decision analysis model, Velocity’s managed cloud experts chose Oracle Cloud Infrastructure as the ideal solution and strategized an implementation plan to help TruGreen fully leverage its JD Edwards investment.
Utilizing a hybrid cloud approach, TruGreen chose to archive its historical data in Velocity’s private cloud while implementing JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.2 on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure using both the Infrastructure-as-a-Service and Platform-as-a-Service products. Moving to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure allowed TruGreen to deliver critical new functionality and innovation while streamlining processes for its disperse lines of business. The company is now able to pull additional applications into its JD Edwards suite rather than build workarounds. The system constraints that had previously been handicapping TruGreen’s experimentation capabilities are now gone and managing its systems has become simpler than ever before.
“In Velocity, I have one point of contact, which helps me manage both my infrastructure and database-as-a-service needs,” said Lee, commenting on the benefits of his new application support structure. “And, through Oracle, I can also easily take advantage of other technology platforms through their Universal Credits Model.”
For Lee, having a reliable support system and an integrated cloud solution is critical, especially since he manages a team of four full-time employees who support the financial system needs of more than 10,000 part-timers and 3,000 corporate team members.
