Oracle Gives University Software Essential to E-Business Systems

Oracle Corp. has donated a set of its software with Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) applications to the School of Business and Economics at California State University, Hayward. The donation includes free Oracle technical service and support.

"It is quite exciting for us to be able to use the ERP system from Oracle, which is a world-wide leader in the field of integrated business solutions," said Zinovy Radovilsky, CSUH professor of management and finance. "The Enterprise Resource Planning applications that Oracle has donated are the backbone of modern e-commerce systems."

The software is a system of integrated business applications that improve delivery, increase inventory turns, and make for faster financial transactions. Cal State Hayward may be the first university in the Bay Area to implement Oracle's enterprise software, Radovilsky said.

"Corporations favor those students that have ERP systems experience and Oracle is very popular," said Radovilsky. "With Oracle ERP, Cal State Hayward students will go out more equipped for today's business world." He said companies such as Cisco Systems, Sun Microsystems, and Silicon Graphics use Oracle ERP.

The gift enables Cal State Hayward to support multidisciplinary courses directly related to the Oracle ERP system, including those in the School of Business and Economics and in the international MBA program in China.

The gift became possible through Cal State Hayward's participation in the Oracle Academic Initiative.
