SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Oracle OpenWorld -- Oracle Corporation today announced that its Cloud infrastructure solutions are helping Grant Thornton LLP—a leading accounting and consulting firm—match its professionals to its clients' needs by providing a platform to tap large volumes of in-house workforce data.
To accomplish this, Grant Thornton and Oracle have deployed an analytics solution on Oracle Public Cloud – an effort that has unified Grant Thornton's data sources, increased its data confidence and reduced data bottlenecks.
"We turned to Oracle because we wanted to tap big data to more effectively get the right client-service professionals in the right roles," said Grant Thornton Chief People and Culture Officer Pamela Harless. "The ability to pair the correct people with carefully aligned projects is critical in the highly competitive world of professional services – and it's why we chose an integrated Oracle Cloud infrastructure and analytics environment."
According to Harless, Oracle Cloud maximized value and accelerated adoption through the Oracle Accelerated Buying Experience, which enabled Grant Thornton to procure the Cloud services quickly and easily – keeping the firm on track to meet its aggressive deployment timeline.
"We are excited about this partnership with Grant Thornton. The solution they built underlines the power, flexibility and agility of the Oracle Cloud Platform," said Don Johnson, vice president of product development at Oracle. "This partnership is an example of the modern investments we are making in building the next generation storage platform."
Grant Thornton and Oracle hope to continue their collaborative relationship by jointly bringing similar workforce-analytics and big-data offerings to the marketplace.
