Strategy through execution.
As with all our technology alliances, our job is to determine the right business strategy for you, the customer, then ensure you have the best and most relevant technology to achieve it. Or, put another way, it’s about technology as an enabler and a means to deliver a successful strategy. In developing that strategy, we bring all our expertise to bear, from market and industry insight to professional know-how in areas like digital, customer strategy, operations, finance, tax, and HR. And once the right technology is identified, we help you get the most from your investment by implementing it, so your business is leaner, smarter, and more agile, enabling you get the benefits faster.
Our partnership with Oracle is business-led – in other words, any technology solution is only as valuable as the business benefit it brings to our clients. We work together with Oracle so that our clients’ needs are our overriding objective. That approach means our clients have processes and a solution that works for their business and its future. We are also experts in Oracle Cloud, bringing our strategic and industry insights to make the technology more relevant, more effective.
"We are making a huge investment in the Oracle alliance, as shown in our Diamond partner status and ‘Cloud Elite Status'). We have the presence, depth, and breadth of experience to meet the needs of our clients. We were the first Oracle partner to deliver an Oracle Release 8 Cloud HCM solution in the UK, significantly improving the client’s levels of agility and flexibility.
Our Oracle propositions reflect where our core expertise lies, namely successful delivery of complex Finance / EPM and HCM programmes; over many years delivering large scale Oracle programmes has become the backbone of PwC’s Oracle Centre of Excellence. With such a mature and established practice, we’re now able to grow with the Alliance in to new and complex areas, such as Tax Reporting Cloud Services and Financial Consolidation and Close suite. Working hand-in-hand with Oracle provides the platform for PwC to input both Oracle and business expertise, and it’s this joint approach that helps to ensure implementations are successful from a business and IT perspective.“
We also have a proposition in the UK in conjunction with Oracle and Oxford University, looking at better ways to manage major one-off programmes, such as mega events (e.g. the Olympic Games), or major transport schemes, which so often come in late or over-budget, or just don’t deliver what they promised.
