Reimagining Enterprise Ireland’s Financial Systems Through Cloud


Enterprise Ireland, the government agency responsible for, and vital to, the development and growth of Irish enterprises in global markets, had a requirement to modernise their legacy on-premise financial and procurement systems. They needed a technology partner they could trust which led them to embark on a strategic collaboration with Version 1.

By implementing Oracle Fusion Cloud ERP, this project was not merely a technological upgrade, but a comprehensive overhaul aimed at streamlining operations and integrating best industry practices. Designed to improve efficiency for users, this transformation was scalable and adaptable, offering a blueprint for organisations in various sectors seeking similar advancements.

Enterprise Ireland faced a range of challenges with their legacy financial and procurement systems. Operating in over 30 international locations, they required a system that could support their dynamic and expansive role. The priority was to improve their business processes to maintain efficiency in the global market. Without addressing these challenges, Enterprise Ireland risked lagging in operational effectiveness, impacting their ability to empower Irish enterprises.

Enterprise Ireland had identified the need to transition to a more automated, data-driven approach. This change was not just about technology upgrades but, more importantly, about transforming business operations to better support and scale Irish businesses in the global market
