The University of California Merced has successfully implemented Oracle Fusion Cloud Enterprise Resource Planning and Oracle Fusion Cloud Enterprise Performance Managemen to support its rapid growth. With the solutions, the university will be able to leverage the latest innovations in automation and predictive analytics to increase business efficiencies, improve insights, and make more informed decisions. Established in 2005, UC Merced quickly became one of the nation's top universities. UC Merced's research opportunities, along with its focus on nurturing first-generation and underrepresented student populations, contributed to its swift growth. As the institution grew, its existing systems and manual processes could not scale to keep pace with the school's expansion. UC Merced needed a flexible, integrated suite of cloud applications that could provide a holistic view of the organization's operations with the latest automation and analytics innovations embedded. After a review of available solutions, UC Merced selected Oracle Cloud ERP and Oracle Cloud EPM, and successfully implemented the systems in less than a year. Running on one cloud, Oracle Fusion Cloud Applications Suite can support UC Merced's business with integrated processes, a common data model, and a consistent user experience. With Oracle Cloud ERP and Oracle Cloud EPM, UC Merced will be able to streamline business operations, more effectively control university resources, and improve reporting capabilities. This will allow staff to focus more time on delivering value to students. In addition, Oracle's software-as-a-service (SaaS) delivery model will give UC Merced access to hundreds of new features every 90 days, without any downtime or business disruption.
