| News alert
Paris, October 5, 2011 – Capgemini, one of the world's foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, has announced today that it has been awarded the Oracle PartnerNetwork Specialized Global Applications Partner of the Year Award during the welcome keynote at Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco.

The award recognizes Capgemini’s role as a leading and innovative technology partner for Oracle Applications. Capgemini is a Diamond-level member in Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN).

The award is in particular recognition of tGov, Capgemini’s full stack Oracle-based solution to drive transformation, cut costs and bring about a broad base of operational efficiencies. In the UK, the solution has been used within several local government councils to bring transparency and sustainable efficiency into back-office functions such as finance, procurement, HR, performance management and reporting. These benefits are delivered by introducing Oracle E-Business Suite, pre-configured with business processes tailored to deliver value in local government. The applications and leading practices provided by tGov enable local councils to share practices more easily, reduce capital costs and improve cost-effectiveness. This ultimately aids local governments in implementing more streamlined and integrated operational strategies, including shared services across areas such as social care, housing and health. The phased transformational approach is aligned to world-class benchmarks and offers change management services in addition to technology implementation. The solution embraces Oracle open standards and is easily upgraded and enhanced to continue delivering value while reducing total cost of ownership.

The Oracle PartnerNetwork Specialized Global Awards recognizes partner excellence in 5 categories, including: Database, Middleware, Applications, Industry, and Server and Storage. The award nominations are submitted by each region based on the winners from their regional awards. Solutions nominees were judged by a renowned team of IDC executives and analysts, as well as their specialization investment.

Jean Claude Viollier, Corporate Vice President, Global Channels & Partner leader, along with Mark Pulling, Oracle Leader from the UK were present at the Oracle OpenWorld to collect the award.

Connie Cservenyak, Global Oracle Partner Executive at Capgemini said: “We are delighted to be recognized with this important award. We won Innovation Awards in the UK for our t-Gov solution but this is the first time we have been recognized at an EMEA and global level. The award reflects our strength in implementing Oracle applications globally and in delivering projects that involve Oracle technology.”

Capgemini has over 10,000 Oracle professionals globally and was recognized in 2011 as a Diamond-level member of the Oracle PartnerNetwork.
