Longtime member of the HEUG and longtime HEUG partner win big at Openworld!

Winner - Oracle Cloud Platform Innovation Award 

Winner - PeopleSoft Innovator Award

Astute Business Solutions, a leading Oracle Cloud Managed Service Provider (MSP) and a Gold Partner, today announced that its client, Gallaudet University, won two prestigious awards at Oracle OpenWorld 2019 the Oracle Cloud Platform Innovation Award and PeopleSoft Innovator Award. Gallaudet University was ceremoniously recognized for its industry-leading solution to Move and Improve PeopleSoft applications to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Gallaudet was chosen from a field of distinguished nominees across multiple industries for the scope, complexity and organizational impact of their Cloud solution.

Gallaudet University chose Astute Business Solutions as its strategic partner to Move and Improve and Manage Peoplesoft Human Capital Management, Financial Management, and Campus Solutions applications on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). Astute conducted on-site OCI workshops to assess Gallaudet's needs and designed a solution to run PeopleSoft on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to help Gallaudet overcome business and IT challenges. The Astute solution for Gallaudet resulted in significant improvements to performance, security and disaster recovery. Astute also implemented its comprehensive PeopleSoft Selective Adoption as a Service Managed Service for Gallaudet on OCI allowing Gallaudet to focus on its core mission of being the premier institution of learning, teaching, and research for the hearing impaired.

Astute's PeopleSoft on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure solution included:

  • Automated move and improve Peoplesoft HCM, FSCM and Campus Solutions applications to OCI
  • Ensuring business continuity with Disaster Recovery on OCI
  • Managed Services for business-critical PeopleSoft applications including automated life cycle management with Cloud Manager
  • Terraform automation for OCI and PeopleSoft deployment
  • Improving security on OCI with TDE encryption for Database Cloud Service
  • Trimming resources, dependencies, and TCO by migrating to the Cloud

During the recently concluded Oracle Open World 2019 conference, Daryl Frelich, Senior Director of IT for Gallaudet University, spoke about the benefits of working with Astute to move and improve its PeopleSoft applications to OCI. Gallaudet realized the following business benefits:

Reduction in TCO by $600,000

  • 50% improvement in application batch performance
  • A reliable, working, and automated Disaster Recovery Solution
  • Reduced the Financial NVision reporting process from 4 hours to 2 hours

“Working with Astute Business Solutions has been critical to the success of Gallaudet University's migration to Oracle Cloud said Daryl Frelich, Director of Enterprise Information Systems. We chose Astute because of their OCI migration experience, ability to meet aggressive timelines, testing applications and the overall cost savings of the project. At the end of the day, I wanted to be able to go home at night and not worry about upgrades, migrations or a reliable disaster recovery plan. By having Astute as a trusted advisor and Managed Service Provider we’ve been able to focus more of our time and resources on our core mission."

Using a scalable and flexible approach, Astute is moving and improving Gallaudet’s PeopleSoft HCM, FSCM and CS applications to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. FSCM and HCM are live and Campus Solutions is currently going through a V9.2 upgrade with a go live in early 2020.

“Having an on-site workshop with Gallaudet University was key to determining the project scope, timeline and implementation said Arvind Rajan, CTO of Astute Business Solutions. Designing a customized solution for each and every client is something we believe is crucial to the success of a lift and shift to the Cloud. Gallaudet was no exception. With each “go live” our partnership with Gallaudet becomes stronger and we look forward to working with them for years to come.”
