Care - Fscm Upgrade And Migration From Oracle Hosting To Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

CARE.org is a global leader within a worldwide movement dedicated to ending poverty. They work to save lives, defeat poverty, and achieve social justice.


The Challenge


Focus on Core Mission

CARE wanted to improve the finance and administrative productivity of its global field staff, get out of the data center business and focus its limited resources on more strategic opportunities

  • Comply with non-profit audit requirements - GDPR, SOC2
  • Reduce Cost, Improve SLA
  • Get out of the data center business
  • Modernize Finance productivity tools for global field staff

Customized PeopleSoft, Global Footprint, Older Version

CARE was operating on an older version of PeopleSoft FSCM, V9.1, that was nearing its end of support term and was running on outdated underlying technology including Oracle database and PeopleTools. CARE was looking for an agile approach to PeopleSoft support and maintenance which they lacked in their current hosting service.

  • Upgrade FSCM V9.1 to V9.2 and Move to OCI in one project
  • Include all customization retrofits, integrations, and security updates
  • Migrating from Oracle OMCS/ACS managed services on OCI Classic to OCI Gen2 Cloud Infrastructure
  • Implement Selective Adoption Strategy for PeopleSoft FSCM V9.2
