There is no “one size fits all” solution to your implementation project.

Every business is unique and requires a tailored approach and solution. We like to think of the Cloud, not as a structured box of leading practices with limited flexibility, but as a collection of leading practices that can be refined and tailored to support your unique business drivers and competitive differentiators. Throughout dozens of implementations, Cloudworks has developed a flexible but structured approach to implementation, beginning with understanding your unique business. Cloudworks has proven, proprietary methodology, “Cloud Connect”, forms the basis for our Cloud Transformation implementations including our industry-leading multi-pillar (ERP, HCM, EPM, SCM) approach. Our technical approach is integrated within the Cloud Connect methodology, including activities such as configuration, data conversions, interfaces, reporting, workflows and testing strategy.

Plan

During the Plan phase, Cloudworks collaborates with its clients to plan and prepare for subsequent phases of the project. The plan is vetted out across multiple client objectives to ensure the proper phasing is developed, including “quick wins”, burning platforms, efficiency of implementation dependencies and ultimately aligning all to our clients executive objectives and guiding principles.

Global Enterprise Design

The Cloudworks Enterprise Design approach enables organizations to begin their journey together as one team, identifying standard processes and structures that are harmonized across the organization. The goal is to begin at the Enterprise level of the organization identifying efficiencies and processes that can be enforced across the organization. The team then dives deeper into the unique business and site specific requirements to ensure a complete understanding of your business model, identifying areas to standardize, optimize and transform your business to Cloud leading practices, while designing for unique business needs and differentiators.

Prototype

The objective of the Prototype phase is to iteratively produce a data loaded, fully configured Oracle Cloud Prototype Environment. The biggest benefit and objective of this phase is to expose the client very early in the project to an actual configured and working Oracle Cloud environment. This is a hallmark of our approach and an essential component of building a solution that is aligned with client requirements very early in the project life cycle.

Test

Testing plays a crucial part in the validation of any system. The guiding strategy in testing any business process is centred on categorizing and prioritizing the critical components to be tested, as well as the types of tests to perform. To truly verify your new Cloud solutions and business processes meets your business requirements, the project team and end-users conduct testing activities supported by a consultant. Users are responsible for testing the system according to your business functions, while our consultants work with your users to provide support in dealing with any variances from the expected results encountered during testing. The key benefit of this approach is that it helps support effective knowledge transfer between our consultants and your users.
