Shared Services Case Studies

Industry: Engineering
Project: Oracle DBA Shared Services for e-Business Suite

A local engineering firm engaged Celeritas to manage their e-Business Suite through a Shared Services arrangement. The Oracle ERP and HR applications were running on Red Hat Linux servers. Oracle Application Servers provided identity management services. Celeritas provided Shared Services for the e-Business Suite, Oracle Databases, Oracle Application Servers and the Linux servers.

This Shared Services engagement involved careful documentation of a complex environment. Celeritas implemented a more robust backup and recovery strategy utilizing Oracle RMAN and Oracle database exports, and configured Oracle Enterprise Manager to monitor all of the components of the e-Business Suite technology stack.

This Shared Services arrangement has resulted in a better-managed, more highly available and reliable environment.


Industry: Manufacturing
Project: Oracle DBA Shared Services

One of the largest permanent mold aluminum foundries in the country utilizes Glovia's Manufacturing application, running on an HP-UX Oracle platform. This company hired the Celeritas team of Oracle experts to make sure the systems are properly maintained, backed up and tuned.

          

With the Oracle Shared Services program, Celeritas provided expertise and support for the day to day operations of the Oracle HP-UX systems. This service also included performance monitoring, backups, and database upgrades and patches.


Industry: Mutual Funds
Project: Oracle DBA Shared Services
A local mutual fund company had several key financial applications running on Oracle databases on a Windows server. Since they had limited Oracle DBA resources they engaged Celeritas to manage their Oracle environment through a Shared Services arrangement.

Some of the services Celeritas provided through this Shared Service include: periodic database reviews and Health Check Reports, hot database backups, application of patches, database upgrades, troubleshooting, and general day to day support of the Oracle environment.
  


Industry: City Government
Project: Oracle DBA Shared Services

A local city government client has over 20 Oracle databases managed by Celeritas through the Shared Services program. These Oracle databases are spread across 10 Microsoft Windows 2000 and Windows 2003 servers.

A sample of the services Celeritas provides through this Shared Service include: periodic database reviews and Health Check Reports, monitoring and management of standby databases, application of patches, database upgrades, database and SQL statement tuning, troubleshooting, and general day to day support of the Oracle environment. Celeritas also has a Change Control process to define and manage any changes required in this large environment.
