Belron – Oracle e-Business Suite Migration to AWS

Leading auto industry service company came to clckwrk for an ERP migration to AWS

Migration of Oracle e-Business Suite 12.1 from on-premise to AWS including platform migration from 32-bit to 64-bit

The Challenge

Belron approached clckwrk in early 2018 with a request to urgently move the Oracle e-Business Suite from the existing hosting provider. The urgency was caused by the end of a hosting agreement which, if breached, would increase costs and business risk for Belron.
The e-Business Suite was customised and highly integrated with other systems at so the risk of migrating was viewed as high.
The challenge for Clckwrk was to:
– Move the e-Business Suite to AWS within the timeframe of 5 weeks
– Minimise any changes to make a ‘life and shift’ approach to migration possible within the desired timeframe
– Analyse and resolve any emerging issues with customisations and integrations
– Support the business through testing and acceptance into service on cloud

The Results

  • Lower Cost
    Time from initiation to go-live was 5 weeks, this was within the schedule for Belron and significantly reduced the business risk faced by the management team
  • Agile
    The Belron team now benefit from the agility of the AWS cloud. Built on IaaS the system can be extended in the future to cater for additional load or contracted to reduce costs when possible
  • Secure
    Data security is at the heart of the design templates used by the Clckwrk team, built on best practice learned from numerous Oracle implementations and from the AWS ‘Well Architected’ Process.

    ‘There was a succinct professional services engagement from Clckwrk to helped to provide a clear structure and support for what approach would be taken for the whole project, highlighting likely challenges and required support that they would need. Given the tight timelines, the right skill sets, responses were provided to the team to allow the project to be a success. Since this project and a signing of an MSA, clckwrk have remained engaged and responsive for new ongoing change.’
