OneNeck to manage and host Oracle E-Business Suite in the cloud for the largest privately held bakery in the U.S.
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 10, 2012- OneNeck IT Services, a hosted application management and cloud services company for Oracle offerings, announced today it has entered into a five-year outsourcing agreement with contract manufacturer, Hearthside Food Solutions. Under the terms of the contract, OneNeck will provide managed and cloud services for Hearthside’s Oracle E-Business Suite application to support its business critical environment. Specific services provided under the agreement are application administration, database administration, operating system administration, network management and infrastructure management.
Hearthside is the largest independent bakery in the U.S., operating 13 food manufacturing plants in six states. In a recent acquisition, Hearthside purchased a business from an existing OneNeck customer. Hearthside had a number of options to consider for the new division’s ERP environment. After careful consideration, the decision was made to keep the ERP environment with OneNeck due to its robust capabilities in cloud services and industry leading support. As part of the new contract, Hearthside’s physical platform was rapidly migrated to OneNeck’s VPS platform, while maintaining seamless business continuity.
“OneNeck had been hosting the Oracle environment for some time prior to the acquisition, and was viewed by local IT and management as a solid performer,” stated Bob Burchfield, Hearthside CIO. “We decided to move to the OneNeck VPS platform to contain costs, and maximize reliability and flexibility. The migration was smooth and the VPS platform has met all of our expectations.”
“Our cloud services are attractive for growing companies because they don't require investment in assets like infrastructure and hardware, or in additional personnel," said Chuck Vermillion, OneNeck CEO. “At the same time, this solution keeps customers focused on their business by enabling instant implementation and seamless operations."
OneNeck is a Gold level member in the Oracle Partner Network (OPN).
