Fujitsu Services - Oracle Implementation
and the automation of processes results
In the late 1990s, Fujitsu Services (then ICL) instigated a project to implement a shared financial system based on Oracle modules across all business units. However, once the new system had been introduced, individual departments gradually introduced local modifications, with the result that, over time, the system was not being used consistently across the business. This effectively prevented the organisation from achieving its original goal of a single, unified financial system..
Fujitsu decided to adopt a single Oracle 11i ledger system across the majority of its UK business units.
br>The key modules implemented included Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, General Ledger, Projects, Fixed Assets, Purchasing and Inventory. This provided the right balance between introducing new functionality and using technology with proven performance. Users were able to exploit new facilities whilst the risks associated with such a large-scale implementation were minimized.
