Linear Technology Realizes Immediate Improvements after Rapid, Seamless Migration to Core Services' Oracle ERP Cloud



In 2015, several factors drove Linear Technology Corporation ("Linear") to seek a new Oracle hosting partner. First, Linear needed a responsive provider that could scale its Infrastructure as its business grew. Second, it needed reliable, expert support to enable predictable development cycles and project timelines. Finally, Linear needed an outsourcing partner that provided meaningful availability SLAs. With these needs in mind, Linear launched a rigorous due-diligence process to evaluate a half dozen short-listed providers.

Linear was drawn to Core Services for several reasons. Core Services' Oracle ERP Cloud allowed Linear to locate production and development servers in different data centers, giving it much needed flexibility that no one else offered. Likewise, Core Services’ zero hour RPO and two hour RTO Disaster Recovery solution was another feature unavailable elsewhere.

Core Services' Oracle ERP Cloud also provided access to best-of-breed ERP infrastructure technology and comprehensive Hosting Managed Services, at a predictable, competitive cost, making Linear’s decision to select Core Services an easy one. Because the end of Linear’s contract with its existing provider was rapidly approaching, Linear needed to execute its migration on an aggressive timeline, and Core Services delivered despite external delays that complicated the cut-over process.

Now that Linear is on Core Services' Oracle ERP Cloud, it enjoys working with a provider that delivers consistent high performance and reliability, migrates changes between its development and production environments in hours instead of days, and provides detailed performance metrics via its proprietary ERP monitoring system. Linear looks forward to realizing the benefits of partnering with Core Services as it continues to optimize Linear’s Oracle ERP solution.
