When it comes to digital transformation, large companies face unique challenges: every division and new acquisition has its own siloed systems with enormous volumes of data to manage. Larsen & Toubro Infotech (LTI), a global IT services company, knows what these companies are facing—and it knows how to help.
LTI specializes in helping companies across geographies and industries achieve digital transformation. LTI leverages solutions from a robust suite of Oracle technologies to help its clients get the greatest benefit from their IT investments. A longtime Oracle Platinum integration partner, LTI has performed more than 250 successful implementations of Oracle’s JD Edwards solutions.
By leveraging its JD Edwards competencies, LTI addresses a wide range of services, including implementation and upgrade, application support, and wholescale business digitization. LTI’s signature MOD framework—with Modernize, Optimize, and Digitize components—is a wide-ranging set of proprietary tools that brings the benefits of digital transformation to its clients. The MOD framework covers everything from analytics and IoT to automation and mobility as a service. Each of the MOD components encompasses unique LTI solutions.
LTI works closely with its clients to determine the best mix of solutions based on the client’s specific situation. For example, perhaps the client is using an earlier version of Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne solution but is not using the product to its fullest. LTI applies its MOD framework to assess the client’s implementation, and then helps the client get the greatest benefit from their solutions. Wherever the client is on their journey toward digital transformation, LTI is committed to solving their challenges so they can be more efficient, effective, and competitive.
LTI’s solutions can help its clients achieve significant, tangible time and cost savings. For example, LTI’s RetroSmart tool can reduce the retrofitting efforts of an upgrade by more than 60% over manual efforts. Its DataMight data migration tool can also reduce migration time and effort by more than 50%. Clients also save time and money by using some of the automated and prebuilt features in the comprehensive LTI toolkit.
“As a long-standing technology partner, LTI is facilitating Otis’ transformation by supporting deployment of our centrally managed global ERP solution. We are leveraging our LTI partnership to bring chatbots into our ERP support structure and enjoy optimized toolsets such as DataMight. Together, we are building a strong foundation for Otis’ transformation as a digital enterprise,’’ says Marcus Galafassi, Vice President and CIO at Otis Elevator.
By leveraging its JD Edwards competencies, LTI addresses a wide range of services, including implementation and upgrade, application support, and wholescale business digitization.
A popular LTI purpose-built JD Edwards solution is the company’s support-system chatbots, which incorporates artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. These pluggable, cloud-powered AI assistants enable real conversations and learn as they go, automatically delivering dialog-based guided resolution, and auto-diagnosis and auto-healing features, which drive significant reductions in support costs. And with MOD, clients can migrate JD Edwards and other applications to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure using LTI’s world-class purpose-built tools.
“We migrated over 30 databases and 25 terabytes of critical financial data from over 150 servers onto Oracle Cloud Infrastructure in only 21 weeks. This was possible because of the exceptional support provided by Oracle and LTI, our strategic IT partner,” said Suresh Tripathi, Director of IT Development at Alliance Data Systems.
LTI and Oracle continue to work together on solutions such as the enterprise chatbot and mobility solutions, which includes Digital Supply Chain Management, Time Out of Environment, and spare parts inventory optimization solutions. They have enabled more than 25 JD Edwards processes for robotic process automation, greatly amplifying business outcomes. Together, LTI and Oracle have had success after success in helping large enterprises make the most of their IT investments.
