Moving to the NetSuite Financial Application Cloud Service

For any particular application there are seven ways to move to the cloud.  One of the ways is to implement an application cloud service from a new supplier.  An international retailer with a centralized Oracle Financials on premises corporate application was faced with the question of how to bring their stores into the cloud.  Deploying an Oracle Financials application in each of 300 locations was deemed to expensive and time consuming. Instead they decided to implement NetSuite financial application cloud services at each of the stores.  In less than three months they completed the rollout. Interestingly, the CFO said for the first time he could actually see how much each of the stores were spending in telephone bills, which is something they never had visibility into before. .
