The magnitude of this accomplishment is incredible. The Navy ERP tech refresh is our largest system cloud migration to date and will enhance the performance of our force,
...said Secretary of the Navy Richard V. Spencer.
This tech refresh culminated roughly three years of planning and preparation, involving tens of thousands of hours of effort, the US Navy explained.
The Navy ERP tech refresh is a major milestone toward consolidating all Department of the Navy financial systems into a single general ledger, which is essential to the department’s ability to produce accurate financial information, obtain a clean audit opinion and improve our data analytic capability,
...commented Thomas Harker, Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Financial Management and Comptroller.
With the cutover complete, Navy ERP, deployed to about 72,000 users across six Navy commands, is now entirely cloud-based, operating significantly faster in memory, data storage and processing.
Prior to the migration, Navy ERP operated on a Systems, Applications, and Products (SAP) server-based Oracle platform. During the tech refresh, Navy ERP upgraded to the SAP HANA (high-performance analytic appliance) cloud-based platform.
The Navy ERP program is managed by Program Executive Office for Enterprise Information Systems’ (PEO EIS) Navy Enterprise Business Solutions program management office.
In addition to supporting PEO EIS’ goals of delivering an enhanced and positive customer experience and enhancing data-driving decision-making, the shift of Navy ERP to the cloud supports the goal to accelerate enterprise cloud adoption. We are already seeing significant benefits in performance such as report runtimes,
...added Program Executive Officer for Enterprise Information Systems Ruth Youngs Lew.
Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) Business Systems Center (BSC) develops and sustains the Navy ERP in support of the program office.
