Massive Global Business Expansion, SuitePeople, SuiteSuccess, Next-Ready ERP, OneWorld for Nordic Businesses and a Wide Array of Customers Headline Annual Conference
SUITEWORLD 2017, LAS VEGAS, Nev.—April 27, 2017—Oracle NetSuite Global Business Unit (GBU), the industry's leading provider of cloud financials / ERP, HR and omnichannel commerce software suites, has unveiled global expansion initiatives, SuitePeople, SuiteSuccess, Next-Ready ERP, and NetSuite OneWorld for Nordics-headquartered businesses. NetSuite also announced a wide array of innovative and fast growing businesses that have selected the NetSuite platform.
Massive Global Expansion Initiatives
NetSuite announced a massive expansion plan to accelerate its international growth. This expansion shows how NetSuite customers will benefit from Oracle’s vast global scale and resources. The expansion initiatives will enable NetSuite to launch more data centers, more field offices and more development centers globally, which will help to bring a leading cloud ERP suite to more organisations around the world.
Adding Oracle’s global resources to NetSuite’s existing global footprint provides rapid entry and expansion into new markets across three key areas:
Data Centers. Oracle NetSuite Global Business Unit plans to more than double its data center footprint from five data centers globally to 11. NetSuite currently operates three data centers in North America, one in Amsterdam, Netherlands and one in Dublin, Ireland. NetSuite expects to add a fourth North American data center in Chicago. As part of the global expansion plans, NetSuite will leverage existing Oracle data centers in Europe and Asia. In Europe, NetSuite is scheduled to open a data center in Frankfurt, Germany to remedy the lack of modern cloud computing offerings in the country. In Asia Pacific, NetSuite plans to initially launch facilities in Australia and Singapore, followed by Japan and China. The addition of Oracle data centers to NetSuite’s operations will provide even greater security, redundancy, performance and scalability for new and existing customers across the globe.
Field Offices. NetSuite expects to double its global presence, expanding from offices in 10 countries to 23 spread across the globe. The addition of Oracle’s field offices significantly increases NetSuite’s ability to meet the rising demand for cloud ERP around the world. NetSuite is establishing a new presence in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Mexico, France, Germany, Sweden, Dubai, China, India, Malaysia and New Zealand. In addition, NetSuite is expanding headcount in existing field offices by over 50 percent to provide better resources for customer demand.
Development Centers. Oracle NetSuite Global Business Unit is leveraging existing Oracle development centers across India, China and Japan. The development centers will be able to accelerate the development of international, regional and local features and functionality within NetSuite OneWorld.
SuitePeople, the Most Unified and Flexible Cloud Core HR Offering Ever
NetSuite announced SuitePeople, a new core human resources (HR) offering natively built on NetSuite’s unified cloud suite. NetSuite is the first and only cloud ERP suite to give businesses a single platform to manage mission critical business processes. Traditionally, businesses have had to manage core HR processes in separate modules, disparate systems, or worse, in spreadsheets. Growing businesses can’t afford the cost, time and risk associated with manual workarounds, complex integrations or siloed data. Unlike legacy HRIS solutions, SuitePeople helps make people information actionable throughout the organisation from a single suite.
SuiteSuccess, The First Unified Industry Cloud Solution
NetSuite announced SuiteSuccess, the first unified industry cloud solution. NetSuite has delivered 12 SuiteSuccess editions for the following eight industries: advertising, media, publishing; financial technology; manufacturing; nonprofit; retail; service-based businesses; software/internet; wholesale distribution. SuiteSuccess is the culmination of a multi-year transformation effort to combine the NetSuite unified suite, 20 years of industry leading practices, a new customer engagement model, and business optimisation methods into a unified, industry cloud solution. SuiteSuccess was engineered to solve unique industry challenges that historically have limited a company’s ability to grow, scale and adapt to change.
NetSuite’s Major Global ERP Enhancements
NetSuite announced the new release of major global ERP features. These new cloud ERP features are designed to ready businesses for what’s next, with a host of enhancements to its core ERP suite. The new functionality spans global financials, revenue recognition, billing, services resource planning (SRP), supply chain management (SCM), and Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC). These enhancements give NetSuite customers the ability to continue to scale and innovate efficiently.
NetSuite OneWorld for Nordics-Headquartered Companies
NetSuite announced NetSuite OneWorld for Nordics-headquartered businesses. NetSuite OneWorld is now localised for Nordics-based businesses. With over 730 subsidiaries and legal entities of global companies already running businesses in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland, the new localised OneWorld offering will bring more global cloud ERP capabilities for the region. Nordic companies will benefit from the combination of NetSuite’s increased product investment and Oracle’s localisation capabilities.
