Computerworld: The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) expects to save 40 percent over five years as the result of a new $10 million cloud computing contract with Global Computer Enterprises (GCE). GCE will provide the agency with access to Oracle's Financials Release 12 software on an SaaS basis.
The Department of Labor signed a similar deal with GCE last year. "We're not ones to break new ground," says Jeff Smith, CFO of the EEOC. "It was important to us that the Department of Labor had already done this with GCE from a past-performance point of view. We had some comfort that they had done this successfully in the required time frame at Labor."
