    Challenges the Client Faced

    • Constellation was going through an extensive JD Edwards EnterpriseOne system upgrade and consolidation and didn’t have the internal resources to manage a global implementation of EnterpriseOne.
    • Training requirements to bring the internal IT team up to speed to
    • support the system were not practical.
    • Constellation needed to focus on mission-critical issues rather than
    • technical issues
    • Reduce the overall IT management burden while retaining control of strategic decision making.
    • Work with a pro-active partner that could guide them through strategic
      decisions and not just one that would be reactive to support requirements

    GSI's Solution

    • GSI acts as an extension of the Constellation IT team to support a very complex global system.
    • Constellation found a significant reduction in the support required to
      maintain their solution by working with GSI.
    • GSI went from supporting a legacy ERP solution to a single, global
      implementation handling all Constellation users.
    • The project highlighted GSI’s capability of delivering support for a large
      global organization.
    • GSI delivered invaluable support from its expert CNC staff with an average of over 15+ years of JD Edwards experience as well as multiple industry and technical certifications (JDE CNC, JDE Technical, JDE Functional, VMware, Oracle RAC, IBM iSeries, PMP/ITIL, Oracle/MS SQL DBMS Certified, CPA,
      CPIM, APICS, etc.).
    • GSI established processes and procedures based on best practices to simplify maintenance and support of the overall system
