NEW YORK, Oct. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ORACLE OPENWORLD -- PwC US today announced that it has been awarded the Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) North America Titan Award for the Human Capital Management Solution category. Oracle North America Titan Awards are given to OPN partners who deliver winning solutions and services, developed in fiscal year 2011, that drive business and customer value.
An Oracle North America Titan Award for excellence in the Human Capital Management Solution category was awarded to PwC in recognition of the firm's contribution to customers leveraging Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM). More specifically, PwC was acknowledged for the firm's expertise demonstrated during one of the first Oracle Fusion Applications customer implementations. The firm has a long history and relationship with Oracle supporting HCM implementations and helping contribute to the design and development of HCM solutions such as Oracle Fusion Workforce Lifecycle Manager, one of the new HCM solution offerings within Oracle Fusion HCM.
"Our clients are looking for powerful solutions such as Oracle Fusion Applications to help leverage their human capital in strategic ways," said Gerard Verweij, Oracle services practice leader at PwC. "We are honored to be recognized by Oracle for our deep understanding of Oracle's HCM applications and the work we do to enable our clients to implement HR transformational change."
"We believe that our investment in Oracle Fusion Applications over the past few years will continue to be critical to meeting our client's needs," said Dan Staley, Oracle HCM practice leader at PwC. "Complementing our existing practice depth in Oracle's PeopleSoft HCM and Oracle E-Business Suite Human Resource Management, Oracle Fusion Applications now provides another strong option for our clients to address their human capital growth goals through a variety of deployment options - SaaS and on-Premise."
PwC is a Diamond level partner in Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) with Advanced Specializations in PeopleSoft Human Capital Management, Oracle Hyperion Planning, PeopleSoft Financial Management, Oracle E-Business Suite Financial Management and Oracle Identity Administration and Analytics. PwC also received an Honorable Mention from Oracle in both the GSI Technology Momentum category and the GSI Apps Momentum category.
"Oracle's valued partner community in North America continues to reach new levels of experience and innovation in developing and implementing Oracle technologies and delivering value-added services to joint customers," said Ted Bereswill, Oracle senior vice president of North America Alliances and Channels. "This year's Titan Award winners reflect the powerful combination that Oracle and our OPN Specialized partners bring to customers across the enterprise and distinct industries."
