To support its growth and continued innovation, Alcoa, the world’s leading producer of primary aluminum and fabricated aluminum, has selected Oracle® Exadata Database Machine and Oracle Fusion Human Capital Management (HCM).

Alcoa will deploy Oracle Fusion HCM alongside existing Oracle E-Business Suite applications. As part of its enterprise application roadmap, Alcoa is also upgrading to the Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1.

Both Oracle Exadata Database Machine X2-2 and X2-8 systems will be implemented to improve OLTP performance, scalability and reliability across the global organization.

Technology Transformation to Support Continued Global Growth and Innovation
Alcoa has been at the leading edge of technology and innovation since inventing the modern-day aluminum industry more than 120 years ago.

Employing a coexistence strategy, Alcoa will introduce new functionality through Oracle Fusion HCM to support continued growth of its 59,000-employee workforce, while maintaining its current Oracle E-Business Suite HCM environment.

By deploying Oracle Fusion HCM, including Oracle Fusion Compensation, Oracle Fusion Performance Management and Oracle Fusion Talent Review, Alcoa will grow their talent, foster collaboration and gain deeper insight into its global human resources.

As part of the upgrade, Alcoa will consolidate four HCM instances down to a single global instance helping to standardize processes, better respond to employee and staffing needs, and reduce system maintenance costs.

Alcoa will replace servers powering current OLTP databases with four half-rack Oracle Exadata Database Machine X2-2 systems and two Oracle Exadata Database Machine X2-8 systems, respectively.

Alcoa has engaged Oracle on Demand and Oracle Consulting to assist with the planning and implementation of the Oracle Applications and Oracle Exadata systems.

Alcoa licensed Oracle Exadata and Oracle Fusion HCM in June 2011.

“Alcoa selected Oracle because the company provides a total solution, from hardware, through software and services,” said Nancy Wolk, Alcoa’s Chief Information Officer. “We believe this ‘single source’ approach best meets our needs. In addition, adding Oracle’s Fusion HCM to the existing Oracle E-Business Suite will provide us with required new functionality while leveraging the systems already in place.”
