The four award categories offer you 4 great reasons to vote. Each category is chock-full of nominations from leading companies that are using the cloud to digitize their business.

1. Frugal Finance Award

According to a study by Nucleus Research, cloud applications deliver a whopping 2.1 times the ROI of on-premises deployments. Whether they’ve improved budgeting, made processes more efficient, or automated tasks that previously consumed hundreds of man-hours, companies in this category have looked after their pennies with finance in the cloud. Read about the nominees and learn how they’ve done it.

2. Procure-to-Payday Award

Automating procurement isn’t just about saving money. It’s also an important part of helping procurement become a more strategic driver in the business—freeing procurement experts from slow, paper-based processes so that they can focus on improving supplier relationships and internal practices.

From touchless transactions to smarter spending, companies in this category have turned procurement into a major payday. Find out how.

3. Better Together Award

While office romances are often doomed to fail, back office “romances” can make for the kind of synergies that companies can fall in love with. When Oracle ERP Cloud is tightly connected to another Oracle Cloud application, that’s when the sparks really start to fly.

Teams in this category have successfully deployed Oracle ERP Cloud with Oracle EPM Cloud, Oracle Supply Chain Cloud, or Oracle Project Portfolio Management Cloud. Some of their results:  a single source of financial truth for reporting and performance management; optimized supply chain operations; or greater visibility into project financial performance and profitability. Learn about how they’ve become better together.

4. Fast Finance Award

The nominees in this category have achieved significant results with Oracle ERP Cloud or Oracle EPM Cloud in 8 to 12 weeks.

Yes, you read that right.

The nominees in this category know that the teams who implement cloud solutions first stand to reap the biggest rewards. A truly great implementation starts with a clear plan and precise timeline, and gets users involved from the get-go. Read about how they achieved outstanding results on their finance cloud implementations, fast.
