CherryRoad Enhances Centralized Communications and Monitoring Efforts with Intellicenter Renovation

Morris Plains, NJ (March 7, 2017) Highlighted by a ceremonial ribbon cutting at their Morris Plains, NJ headquarters, CherryRoad recently unveiled its highly anticipated, newly renovated Intellicenter. Commonly referred to as a Network Operations Center (NOC), the Intellicenter provides a single location to help the organization’s resources better respond to the growing needs of its clients’ complex and evolving requirements. The design improvements have enhanced CherryRoad’s vast array of tools, processes, and procedures that support their clients, while allowing the company to ensure their industry leading Service Level Agreements (SLAs) are met and transparent.

“Whether we’re monitoring video feeds of our offices or data centers or memory usage of a server for a client, our team utilizes the visual data on our screens combined with alerts to make sure we are preventing incidents versus just responding,” stated Mike Rubilotta, CherryRoad Director of Managed Services.

The Intellicenter puts clients’ needs at the forefront while offering CherryRoad consultants a world of resources to ensure a seamless response to issues that may arise in the field. “We have resources for managed services all over the country doing this work. This gives us the capability to centralize all their efforts,” Rubilotta added. While the Intellicenter is key in unifying CherryRoad’s reach from coast-to-coast and beyond, it aptly ties together the firm’s advancement in the changing world of IT.

As the Public Sector continues to move into Private, Public, or Hybrid Cloud services, CherryRoad’s Intellicenter has the capability and flexibility to adapt to those needs. “It is a physical representation of the evolution of CherryRoad. We’re not just a PeopleSoft implementation company, anymore,” Steve Lange, CherryRoad President and COO noted at the ribbon cutting. “This represents all of the other services that we provide – cloud services, hosting services, and monitoring.”

10-08-15Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Treasury Transformation Project Continues to Garner National Recognition and Awards

Morris Plains, NJ (October 8, 2015) – CherryRoad Technologies Inc., a leading integrator of enterprise software and Platinum level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), congratulates the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, for the continued recognition its nationally acclaimed Treasury Transformation Project has received including most recently as one of GCN Magazine’s “Top Ten IT Excellence Projects” award winners as well as a finalist in NASCIO’s Outstanding Achievements in State IT projects awards.

CherryRoad, who implemented Oracle’s PeopleSoft Financials and Oracle Fusion Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC), is proud to have partnered with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Treasury during its two-year innovation journey which replaced aging, unsupported mainframe systems. At the project’s conclusion the Commonwealth transformed the way in which it serves its constituents, setting a new benchmark for other states to follow. The project, which has impacted the entire Commonwealth in a highly positive manner, consolidated more than 25 internal systems and numerous financial business processes, eliminated multiple individual systems, and standardized all interfaces to the Treasury. The original budget, slated at $42 million, was completed on time and $7 million under budget. The exceptional teamwork, collaboration, change management, and support between the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, CherryRoad, and Oracle were the overarching, critical success factors.

“From the onset of the project, CherryRoad was responsive to our needs and did demonstrate a high level of knowledge and commitment, which helped PA Treasury successfully accomplish its numerous business objectives,” said PN Narayanan, Chief Information Officer, Pennsylvania Treasury.

“We are privileged to have contributed to the success of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s ambitious Treasury Transformation project,” commented Jeremy Gulban, CherryRoad President. “As with all our clients, our goal is to assist in helping them transform their organizations and the way in which they do business. The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has demonstrated great vision and this initiative serves as an outstanding example of success that others can model.”

We value our long-term partnership with CherryRoad and are pleased to have played a role in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Treasury’s award-winning Transformation project,” stated Dennis Morgan, Group Vice President, Public Sector Channels, Oracle. “CherryRoad continually demonstrates its commitment to Oracle public sector clients by delivering innovative solutions that allow them to leverage the strength and depth of Oracle’s PeopleSoft product line and solve their most critical business challenges.”

02-20-14State of California Contracts CherryRoad Technologies for FI$Cal Project

CherryRoad Technologies Inc., an Oracle Platinum partner and leading public sector systems integrator has announced their selection by the State to play a key role in its quest to establish an integrated Financial Management System (FMS) through the implementation of Oracle PeopleSoft. CherryRoad has subcontracted with M Corp, a Sacramento-based company that has handled approximately 20 legacy migration projects for the State of California, to assist in this engagement.

This initiative, termed FI$Cal (Financial Information System for California), is a ground-breaking, statewide business transformation project which encompasses the areas of budgeting, accounting, procurement, and cash management. CherryRoad’s contract with the FI$Cal Project, a partnership with the Department of Finance, State Controller’s Office, State Treasurer’s Office, and Department of General Services, is approximately $26 million and given the scope and complexity, will take several years to complete.

Together, CherryRoad and M Corp will provide the State with the necessary expertise and services required to successfully prepare for and execute legacy systems identification, legacy artifacts collection, and the migration of legacy systems data into the new FI$Cal PeopleSoft Enterprise Resource Planning staging area. Among their many objectives, the two companies will identify and migrate data from the State’s approximated 2,200 legacy systems across 156 state departments – including agencies, offices, boards, and commissions – to the new Oracle PeopleSoft Enterprise Resource Planning software system.

“We are truly honored to partner with the State of California in this milestone initiative which will completely revolutionize the way it does business,” said CherryRoad President, Jeremy Gulban. “Having successfully implemented more Oracle PeopleSoft statewide engagements than any other Oracle partner, CherryRoad brings our amassed depth of public sector knowledge and best practices learned from the implementations and upgrades of 14 prior state clients to the State to ensure the success of this initiative.”

“We’re extremely honored to work with the State on such a landmark project,” said Alex Castro, one of three founding partners of M Corp. “We are very excited at the opportunity to utilize our demonstrated and successful legacy migration frameworks and tools to support CherryRoad and the State of California.”

05-09-13CherryRoad proudly participates in Oracle PeopleSoft 9.2 Early Adopter Program

Since Oracle’s PeopleSoft new version 9.2 debuted in late March, CherryRoad, an award-winning Oracle Platinum partner, has been diligently partnering with our commercial and public sector clients helping them fully leverage the more than 1,000 new features, functions, and enhancements made available. PeopleSoft 9.2 delivers an innovative new user experience and expanded product functionality, while helping to reduce total cost of ownership. CherryRoad is committed to helping our clients maximize their Oracle PeopleSoft investment and reap its full benefits.

CherryRoad’s initial interfacing with Oracle’s latest version dates back even earlier to when the organization was chosen to participate in Oracle’s 9.2 Early Adopter program. The initiative, which was rolled out to a select group of partners and clients prior to the release, gave participants a first-hand opportunity to become directly involved with the new version’s testing and development phases. Oracle chose CherryRoad largely due to the two organizations’ relationship as well as CherryRoad’s legacy of successfully completing more than 500 implementation and upgrade projects over the course of two decades.

“With the release of version 9.2, Oracle continues to demonstrate its commitment to continue to invest in PeopleSoft. CherryRoad is honored to have partnered with Oracle on the pre-release of 9.2 and worked to get our clients into the Early Adopter program. We are dedicated to helping our clients take full advantage of the newest capabilities made available through Oracle’s latest technology.”

04-17-13CherryRoad Technologies presents at Collaborate 2013 Conference & Receives Award

Morris Plains, NJ – April 16, 2013 – CherryRoad Organization Readiness Practice Manager, Dr. Jeff Bailey, recently presented at the 2013 Collaborate Conference. Collaborate is a Technology and Applications forum for the Oracle community, bringing more than 5,000 users and exhibitors together from Quest International Users Group, Oracle Applications User Group (OAUG), the Independent Oracle User Group (IOUG). The conference features hundreds of user-led educational sessions based on real-world challenges and solutions across the entire platform of Oracle products including: PeopleSoft; Oracle E-Business Suite; Fusion Applications; Hyperion; Oracle Database, and others. This year’s conference was held in Denver, CO.

Dr. Bailey’s presentation focused on the topic of technology user adoption by employing risk management tools. He stated that with any new technology users require time to adjust to new functions, features, and processes. During this adjustment period, users may revert back to manual processes or create shadow systems. Regardless, poor user adoption and acceptance is a risk to the overall success of a systems project. Dr. Bailey suggested mixing risk management techniques with a change readiness plan to ensure users are engaged, ready, and willing to try the new system. Specifically, Dr. Bailey suggested using the risk management plan outlined in the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) to identify and mitigate risks associated with user adoption and acceptance. He presented some examples of risks tied to user adoption and mitigating strategies that he has successfully used on projects, which led to a discussion with the session participants regarding their user experiences. For more information about this presentation, contact CherryRoad at info@cherryroad.com.

Also during the conference, CherryRoad marketing director, Elaine Verrone, was presented with the Quest International Users’ Group 2013 Business Partner Distinguished Service Award in recognition of her contributions to the PeopleSoft community. “I am truly honored to receive this distinction” stated Verrone. “CherryRoad is committed to continuing its partnership with Quest to help members drive better business results, achieve a higher satisfaction from their Oracle investment, and leverage their relationship built in Quest’s user-led, user-driven community."
