The company, which aims to connect 93 per cent of homes, schools and workplaces with optical fibre to the premises, has implemented a range of Oracle’s complete, open and integrated applications to disk solutions at its Greenfields site in Western Australia.
NBN Co said that the move was part of its key IT strategy principles, which include the selection of off-the-shelf applications with minimum customisations, best of suite solutions to minimise integration and a focus on the total cost of ownership.
NBN Co chief information officer, Claire Rawlins said that Oracle is a key part of NBN Co’s business strategy. “As a low cost wholesale network service provider needing to stand up a complete set of integrated applications, we have been highly reliant on the broad suites of products available from Oracle to help achieve our goals,” she said.
The range of Oracle solutions implemented include: its E-Business Suite, Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management, its CRM On Demand, Oracle Business Intelligence, Oracle Enterprise Governance, Risk, and Compliance Manager, Oracle Identity Management 11g, its Primavera Enterprise Project Portfolio Management, Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g and Oracle Database 11g.
