NETSUITE ONEWORLD FOR ORACLE DELIVERS BENEFITS OF CLOUD COMPUTING TO DIVISIONS OF LARGE ENTERPRISES WHILE RETAINING INVESTMENT IN CORPORATE-LEVEL ERP SYSTEMS
New Software Enables Divisions of Large Oracle Legacy Accounts to Manage Multinational, Multi-Sub Business Operations in Real-Time
SAN MATEO, Calif. — October 14, 2009 —NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), a leading vendor of cloud computing business management software suites, today announced a new version of NetSuite OneWorld that lets Oracle E-Business Suite enterprise customers enjoy the cost savings and efficiency benefits of cloud-based business suites at the divisional level while retaining current investments in Oracle applications at the corporate level. With NetSuite OneWorld for Oracle, Oracle E-Business Suite customers can use NetSuite's leading Software as a Service (SaaS) application to manage multinational, multi-subsidiary business operations in real-time and then roll up division-level transaction and summary data to gain a key enterprise-wide view of business operations.

This new offering from NetSuite targets a market opportunity that is gaining significant attention in the current economy as large enterprises struggle to control costs and gain greater efficiencies across key business processes. While some companies spend vast sums on corporate implementations of integrated suites like Oracle, these business software systems often have difficulty delivering the functionality and flexibility needed to manage and drive the multiple divisions that make up today's typical large multinational corporations.
In order to compete effectively, these divisions often need software systems that are more malleable, customizable and flexible than what is provided by the corporate parent company. NetSuite OneWorld helps to address this need by delivering a modern, cloud-based software system that enables the management of divisions within complex, multinational corporations and multi-subsidiary companies, with integration to Oracle E-Business Suite at the corporate level via SuiteCloud Connect for Oracle.
"In building a worldwide business, our vision on information is to diminish geographic borders and time," said Ysmael Baysa, CFO, Jollibee Foods Corporation, (www.jollibee.com.ph), one of Asia's largest fast food chains, operating over 1,800 stores in Asia and North America. "We expect to see the financial information about a store in Shanghai just as fast and complete as one in Manila. By integrating with Oracle financial applications, NetSuite is helping us realize this vision. Going forward, our current plan is to continue supporting our Philippine and corporate operations with Oracle financials, implement NetSuite in all of our foreign operations and establish an efficient interface between these two systems."
"NetSuite OneWorld for Oracle enables large companies to keep their investment in legacy business applications, while deploying a modern, web-based business application suite that reduces costs and helps make their divisions more competitive and employees more productive," said Zach Nelson, CEO of NetSuite.
