The University of California San Diego, one of the country's top research institutions, is replacing its legacy financial management system with Oracle Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Cloud. Oracle ERP Cloud will enable UC San Diego to increase overall productivity and bolster decision making with real-time business insights and easily incorporate emerging technologies going forward.
Established in 1960, UC San Diego is one of the world's most reputable and innovative research universities with more than 36,000 students and nearly $5 billion in annual revenue. To increase efficiencies and improve decision-making, UC San Diego needed to replace its existing financial management system-which had become complex and expensive to update-with a secure, scalable and configurable business platform that could reduce redundant business processes and enable different campus systems to share financial data securely. After a nine-month competitive bid process, which included participation from more than 100 stakeholders and subject matter experts, the university selected Oracle ERP Cloud.
