Infocrossing, partners with the Department of Finance and Employees Relations for the State of Minnesota

11 December 2008

Infocrossing, a Wipro(NYSE:WIT) Company, today announced the completion of a large Oracle PeopleSoft 9.0 upgrade at the Department of Finance and Employee Relations for the State of Minnesota. The department has been recently renamed to Minnesota Management & Budget (MMB). MMB provides payroll and employee benefits services to approximately 50,000 state employees and retirees, with health coverage for approximately 115,000 lives.

The State of Minnesota leveraged Infocrossing’s enterprise resource planning and consulting expertise to upgrade from PeopleSoft 8.3 to 9.0 meeting all project criteria in eleven months as planned. The newly implemented HCM system allows the State of Minnesota to effectively manage information of non-employees and the new compliance requirements.

The upgrade has improved printing through the use of newer technologies such as XML, and has set a baseline to enable other reporting capabilities. In terms of security, People Soft 9.0 keeps the State’s information up-to-date with ever increasing security policies. The upgrade has thus resulted in “best practices” and has enhanced features for vendor releases of tax upgrades, corrections and enhancements.

“This upgrade is a great example of how a project should be conducted and delivered. Projects of this size and complexity are often late and over budget, but MMB has had a great history of success in delivering successful projects by complete planning, establishing disciplined project management and selecting experienced partners. For this upgrade, we selected Infocrossing and its consultants brought specific business and technical product knowledge that enabled a successful conclusion.” said Steve Jorgenson, CIO, MMB.

“Infocrossing‘s years of PeopleSoft expertise, robust methodologies and toolsets, and experienced consultants have led to the successful implementation of the latest version of Oracle’s PeopleSoft Human Capital Management v9.0 at the State of Minnesota,” said Scott Antin, Regional Vice President of Sales for Infocrossing. The State of Minnesota has been a leader in adapting new technologies and automating payroll and we are pleased that through this implementation they will derive the benefits of an updated ERP system that can streamline business processes, reduce costs and increase employee satisfaction.”

Infocrossing’s parent company, Wipro, became one of Oracle's Global SI partners in July 2005. This strategic partnership leverages Wipro's end-to-end services and global delivery model with Oracle's applications and technology solutions. Wipro has extensive Oracle, CRM, JD Edwards, and PeopleSoft practices. The company offers joint solutions on Oracle 11g Database (Grid and RAC), Oracle Fusion Middleware (BPEL, BAM, Web services, and identity management on Oblix), and Oracle application migration to Linux platform.
