“We wanted ONE partner to provide the whole range of cloud services including infrastructure, platform, applications and professional services. We wanted simple and less complex…that's why we selected Oracle.” – Gilbert Torrance, IT Director, LifeScan, Inc.

LifeScan, Inc., a diagnostic systems manufacturer with a blood glucose monitoring brand called OneTouch®, needed to move to cloud in a six-month timeframe in order to enable a divestiture from Johnson & Johnson (J&J) Company. This meant that all of their on-premises applications within J&J data centers needed to be externally hosted in the cloud in order for the divestiture to be successful.

LifeScan turned to Oracle because they wanted one partner that could provide the entire lifecycle of cloud services including infrastructure, platform, applications and professional services. Oracle Consulting was selected as the implementation partner due to expert content knowledge on Oracle Cloud products, which provided confidence to LifeScan that the move to cloud would happen within the aggressive timeframe.

Oracle Consulting was selected for two critical projects:

  • Migration of JD Edwards ERP to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) by Oracle Consulting Technology

  • Implementation Oracle Procurement Cloud and Financials Cloud by Oracle Consulting Applications

“Oracle Consulting helped move the entire back office to the cloud freeing LifeScan to innovate as a standalone company.”  – Gilbert Torrance, IT Director, LifeScan, Inc.

The Oracle Cloud platform with JD Edwards and Procurement Cloud will empower LifeScan to transform their business by freeing valuable resources to focus on the creation of innovative products and services that help save lives.
