The Challenge

wichita-business
Business

Cost Savings

Wichita Public Schools was running Oracle E-Business Suite Financials on-premises, on the Solaris operating system. They also had PeopleSoft HCM running on-premises, on a Microsoft Windows environment. It was determined that the District could save hundreds of thousands of dollars by lifting and shifting their PeopleSoft HCM ERP to OCI. Additionally, the District needed a place to archive their E-Business Suite ERP data after converting to Oracle ERP Cloud and they found that OCI was a cost-effective place to do so.

  • The cost of maintaining and upgrading on-premises infrastructure can be expensive
  • There is a need for storage space that can accommodate large volumes of data
  • Organizations may not have the staff or expertise to manage their own data archiving solution
  • Data archiving solutions can be complex and time-consuming to implement
  • PeopleSoft is a complex application that can be difficult and expensive to maintain and upgrade on premises

Increase Security, Improve Support

The challenge in migrating Solaris to Unix was ensuring that the new system would be able to handle the large volumes of data that Wichita Public Schools needed to archive. Additionally, the Solaris operating system was being replaced with a Unix system, so there was a need for the new system to be able to handle the legacy application that was being run on-premises.

Maintaining an on-premises infrastructure can be costly, and organizations may not have the staff or expertise to manage it effectively. Additionally, running PeopleSoft in a Microsoft Windows environment can also be expensive, as Windows licensing costs can be significant. Moving PeopleSoft to the cloud can save money by eliminating the need for an on-premises infrastructure and by taking advantage of lower cloud pricing.

The Solution

Migrate to OCI

Move to Cloud

Oracle databases can be replatformed from Solaris to Unix. The process of replatforming an Oracle database is known as Database Migration. There are a number of reasons why you might want to migrate your Oracle database, but the most common reason is to take advantage of lower pricing on Unix systems. In order to complete a successful migration, you will need to ensure that your new system is able to handle the large volumes of data that your Oracle database contains. Additionally, you will need to make sure that your new system is able to support the legacy applications that are currently running on your Oracle database.

Replatform, Upgrade

Running PeopleSoft in a Microsoft Windows environment can also be expensive, as Windows licensing costs can be significant. Moving PeopleSoft to the cloud can save money by eliminating the need for an on-premises infrastructure and by taking advantage of lower cloud pricing.
