Oracle chosen for Department of Defence infrastructure overhaul

Oracle to provide more than 200 software products

The Australian Department of Defence (DoD) has selected Cloud and datacentre hardware and software vendor, Oracle, to upgrade its ICT infrastructure.

The purchase is part of DOD’s Strategic Reform Program (SRP) which aims to deliver around $20 billion in savings between 2010 and 2020, including $1.9bn in ICT savings.

The four-year agreement (which was signed on May 28) will see Oracle provide the DoD with department-wide, unlimited use of more than 200 software products from the vendor’s database and middleware portfolios.

According to Oracle, the deployment will held DoD to migrate from a highly complex enterprise architecture, featuring more than 3000 applications, to an integrated, rationalised and standardised suite of infrastructure solutions.

“With just under 81,000 full-time personnel and active reservists, we needed a consolidated HR solution that would enable us to transform the way we deliver HR and talent management services across all arms of the Defence Force,” DoD CIO, Greg Farr, said.

“Oracle has provided us with this modern platform and has provided a partnership to ensure its success for the future,” he said. “In particular, HR analytics will help us better understand our workforce, including identifying high quality applicants, improving employee retention, reducing absence costs and designing compensation that rewards performance.”

The agreement is expected to yield a reduced total cost of ownership (TCO) as deduplication of applications and effort is reduced.
