AMX Polaris(TM) for Public Sector Equips Local Governments with Low-Cost, High Value OracleŽ Application Bundles
Conference, June 13 -- In an effort to provide local governments with industry-tailored solutions that are affordable and quick to deploy, Oracle (NASDAQ:ORCL) today announced that AMX, a Certified Partner in the OracleŽ PartnerNetwork, is delivering AMX Polaris(TM) for Public Sector, an Oracle Accelerate solution that has been reviewed by Oracle. Oracle Accelerate is Oracle's approach to helping partners deliver Oracle products to small and medium sized businesses, local governments and small to mid-sized state and federal agencies (SMGs).
Today, public sector organizations are under increased pressure to control IT costs, manage limited resources and maintain high-levels of productivity with minimal business interruption in order to improve efficiency and constituent service. Based on Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, AMX Polaris for Public Sector provides a pre-configured, industry-tailored solution that will enable SMGs to benefit from cost-effective, best practice deployments and rapid implementations.
AMX Polaris for Public Sector incorporates real, day-to-day business flows and best practices drawn from the public sector into its methodology, resulting in more efficient processes including: project budgeting; encumbrance-based expense tracking; fund, grant and project management; fixed asset management; procure-to-pay; and performance reporting. Additionally, AMX Polaris for Public Sector automates software upgrades, helping to significantly reduce the complexity and risk associated with migrating to updated versions. Public sector customers can achieve rapid results and then add, modify and expand the entire footprint as their organizational needs grow.
"As a local government simultaneously challenged by both funding constraints and highly complex business processes, we needed a comprehensive tier 1 financial management solution at a tier 2 price," said City of Redmond Information Services Manager, Linda Hermanson. "In AMX we found a trusted Oracle reseller and implementer of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, our financial management system of choice, and a long-term partner who understands local government and continues to deliver solutions rapidly and economically for the City."
Low-Cost Application Bundles and Industry-Specific Functionality Oracle Accelerate combines Oracle applications with partner expertise and Oracle Business Accelerators or other rapid implementation methodologies in industry-tailored solutions that are packaged, priced and delivered by partners specifically for small and medium businesses and SMGs. Key to Oracle Accelerate is the availability of pre-packaged application bundles -- such as AMX Polaris for Public Sector -- that provide a wide range of industry-specific functionality and allow rapid implementation.
"It's no secret that small and midsized governments must be more nimble than ever to satisfy the growing demands and expectations of their local constituent base. They face the same complexity and challenges of larger governmental agencies, but must keep pace with only a fraction of the funding and resources," said AMX Vice President Strategic Alliances Darin Stoddard. "With Oracle, AMX is able to leverage Oracle's integrated applications and deliver affordable solutions that help SMGs overcome the industry complexities they face on a daily basis."
