Oracle continues to progress in Europe's telecoms sector
KPN has chosen Oracle Fusion Cloud Applications Suite for finance, supply chain management and human resources to help streamline the company’s business operations. The implementation will be managed by Deloitte and Oracle Consulting.
KPN has more than 6 million mobile and broadband consumer customers in the Netherlands. The operator's aim is to make the Netherlands the best-connected country in the world and deliver the most environmentally sustainable network and services in the region.
Keeping up the good work
It has been diversifying its business towards digital services over the last few years, which required the company to rethink how it manages its core business processes so that it can embrace new business models and scale new services.
Oracle’s integrated cloud platform is intended to "significantly" reduce operational costs and energy consumption across its business.
Chris Figee, CFO (note) at KPN, said, “KPN is transforming its business to support our customers in this new world, and this requires us to simplify and consolidate our operations to become more agile, more adaptable, and more flexible in what is a continually shifting environment. We believe Oracle can support us in this transformation”.
