" Navisite Helps Commercial Vehicle and Power Solutions Business Save $80,000 Annually with Oracle to AWS Cloud Migration CASE STUDY PENSKE AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND Expertise Needed to Move Oracle Off-Premises A subsidiary of the Penske Automotive Group, a U.S.-based Fortune 500 company, Penske Australia & New Zealand distributes commercial vehicles, diesel engines, gas engines, power systems and related parts across the region. For years, the company used Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) as its primary financial management system. But following an acquisition in 2014, Penske Australia & New Zealand decided to move to an industry-specific enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. Following this change, Oracle EBS went f rom being the ERP of record for thousands of employees to a system that only needed to be accessed occasionally for historical purposes. It had become stagnant and increasingly expensive to maintain as time went on. Bobby Stojceski, technology and security manager at Penske Australia & New Zealand, knew he had to do something to reduce costs—but simply getting rid of Oracle EBS wasn't an option. "Australian tax laws mandate that we keep tax invoices, purchase orders and other financial records in Oracle EBS for seven years," Stojceski said. "We had a legal requirement to continue operating the system, but we knew we couldn't keep it on-premises because it was too costly to maintain. We needed to migrate Oracle EBS onto another platform, but we didn't have IT team freed from managing costly, legacy Oracle EBS Upwards of $80,000 saved annually on hardware and power costs Opportunity to further reduce costs and modernize on AWS 1-855-739-3227 | | It only took one conversation for me to know that Navisite was the partner for us. They were the only team we spoke to that exuded confidence that the project would be done on time and on budget—and they delivered.
