Enterprise Freight and Logistics Case Study

Enterprise Freight and Logistics Case Study

Large Scale Technology Programmes

CHALLENGE:

Our client needed to successfully deliver programmes with the potential to impact stakeholders and key business units globally.

RESULT:

Work of 8 outgoing PMs transferred to 3 incoming PM-Partners staff. Projects now delivering within timeframes and within budget.
CMS Implementation Project - $1.5M
The approach is to utilise the simplified modular appliance approach built on Hewlett Packard (HP) technology and to host it at a local DC which enables further HP tools and capability to be developed more efficiently and effectively. The HP toolsets will also become quarantined from all other production systems, have in-built high-availability and be replicated in a geographically considered DR instance.

Common Oracle JEE and DB Project - $0.6M
Migrate five Oracle RAC environments (Dev/Test, UAT, Perf, Prod and DR) to the new ATS platform environment

Workday Desktop Project - $120k
Implement a Global HRIS (Human Resource Information System) using the Workday Software as a Service (SaaS) based solution

Australia – New Zealand Office Upgrade / OPMC Deployment Project - $100k
