The State of Kansas Leverages Hosting & Managed Services to Improve Business Processes & Operate More Efficiently

For many years, the State of Kansas has relied on Sierra-Cedar to optimize its PeopleSoft applications. Sierra-Cedar has continually assisted the state with each HRMS and Financials upgrade to the current versions. The state awarded Sierra-Cedar a five-year contract for providing PeopleSoft and Oracle BI hosting and disaster recovery services, using the Sierra-Cedar data center and administrative personnel. The state gained many efficiencies by migrating on-premise HCM and Financials applications to the Sierra-Cedar Hosting Center.

Key Project Highlights:

  • Empowered the State of Kansas to focus its existing resources on core mission objectives rather than day-to-day maintenance or system upkeep
  • Reduced down-time due to hardware/system issues or failures and eliminated out-of-pocket expenses for on-site hardware
  • Reduced time required to apply or complete major application upgrades
  • Made it easier to stay current with application updates, bundles, fixes, and patches
