Grupo Fármacos Especializados is a consortium of companies that specializes in various healthcare-related services and products. The group started as a single pharmacy in Mexico City, grew to a chain of pharmacies, and later expanded to include wholesale distribution of pharmaceuticals and healthcare products to public and private sector organizations.
Grupo Farmacos implemented Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle’s PeopleSoft, Siebel CRM, Hyperion, Demantra, SOA, and Oracle Business Intelligence—run and managed by Oracle Managed Cloud Services—providing a single instance capability that supports daily operations, executive decision making, and enables the IT organization to leverage the software functionality to support strategic business initiatives instead of ongoing system maintenance and support
Grupo Farmacos upgraded and implemented Oracle Exadata Database Machine, Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud, and Oracle Exalytics In-Memory Machine to support the growing quantity of commercial and financial transactions performed using the data warehouse and business intelligence (BI) systems—which drive Grupo Fármacos Especializados’ order and delivery processes—ensuring the company meets market challenges in line with its corporate strategy
“After careful technical and financial feasibility analysis, we upgraded to Oracle Engineered Systems, run and maintained by Oracle Managed Cloud Services, ensuring greater system stability and availability and leveraging the best practices and expertise needed to support our growth.”
