After a recent implementation of Oracle Cloud, the City of Greeley has chosen to initiate a new partnership with Highstreet leveraging Highstreet’s one-of-a-kind Cloud managed services offering, ECS (Extended Cloud Service)
Home to both Aims Community College and the University of Northern Colorado, Greeley is a lively college town which was established as the Union Colony in 1869.1 In addition to this, Greeley boasts a “thriving diversified business climate” with the foundation of the town’s economy being agricultural. Greeley achieves the nearly impossible by balancing the small-town feel while having many of the medical, cultural, and educational amenities we have come to expect from large cities only. Greeley rejoices that, “Many visitors find that the community is bigger, more diverse, and more appealing than what they ever imagined.”2
With the awesome Rocky Mountains on one side and the vast open plains of Colorado on the other, Greeley has a diverse culture that includes both cowboy boots and business ties. With a population of 110,000 Greeley is the 12th largest town in Colorado is located merely fifty miles north of Denver, Colorado.3
ECS is Highstreet’s exclusive managed services offering which supports Oracle Cloud customers. Currently running Oracle Cloud HCM & Finance, the City of Greeley transitioned support to Highstreet’s ECS team on March 1st 2021. As a part of Highstreet’s Managed Services offering, our team reviews Oracle’s quarterly release notes and evaluates them for relevant and helpful data. Once this data is identified, the system is optimized, and staff informed in the new methods and features included in the release. This ensures that our Managed Services clients are always on the cutting edge of Oracle’s releases and that their system stays relevant for years to come—maximizing their investment. The City of Greeley will receive their first quarterly release assessment report in April for the 21-B update.
