Oracle is Child’s Play…in NSW
By Divya Malik on May 20, 2010
A few weeks ago, my colleague Michael Seback posted a blog entry on Oracle's acquisition of Haley ( a leading provider of policy modeling and automation software for legislative and regulated industries such as public sector, financial services and insurance.) We recently read an interesting report from Down Under on an implementation of Oracle's policy automation software in New South Wales, which I thought I would share. Oh, and and here was our press release on it.
We always love hearing about our software "at work", and especially in the Public Sector- social services area, where it makes a big difference to people's lives.
These were some of the reasons, why NSW chose Oracle software:
"One of the things Oracle's Policy Automation system is good at is allowing you take decision trees and rules that are obviously written in English and code them up using very much a natural language approach," said Holling (CIO for Human Services). "So it was quite a short process to translate the final set of rules that were written on paper into business rules that were actually embedded in the system."
- "Another reason why we chose Oracle's Automation tool is because with future versions of Siebel it comes very tightly integrated with that. It allows us to then to basically take the results of the Policy Automation survey and actually populate our client management system database with that information," said Holling.
As per Surend Dayal, North America VP, Oracle's Policy automation has applications across a wide range of industries, including public sector--especially health and human services--also financial services, insurance, and even airline rewards programs. In other words, any business process that requires consistent, accurate decision-making where complex legislation and/or internal policies are involved.
