Our depth and breadth of capabilities makes us Your.One.Partner.
As we've surveyed the enterprise application landscape in recent years, we've noticed a growing gap between what clients need and what solution providers are able to provide. No longer do clients simply need implementation or upgrade services. They need ways to optimize the ongoing maintenance of their applications. Further, they need to determine how next generation technology can bring their business to the next level. The bottom line is they need a more holistic solution to not only serve them today, but advance their mission in the future.
Despite these changing needs the solution provider community has in many ways failed to keep up. As we see it, the solution provider community has become what we call barbelled. On the one end of the barbell we find the Global SIs. It's true that the Global SIs have the breadth of capabilities to provide holistic solutions. However, unless a client is of significant size and willing to spend millions of dollars, these providers just are not interested. On the other end of the barbell we find the niche providers. These organizations are generally very good at what they do. However, due to their size and lack of investment resources, they can only provide a part of the answer.
CedarCrestone has bridged the gap. With a 25 year history of delivering client success, CedarCrestone's strategy is to better serve our clients by investing in our core capabilities based on market insight, client needs, industry trends and Oracle's strategic direction. This strategy has led us to a holistic solution set that combines industry based consulting, top tier managed services, and advanced technology services. It is the combination of these capabilities that allow us to provide unique, differentiated solutions to our clients.
Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, CedarCrestone was formed in 2005 when Cedar Enterprise Solutions (founded in 1981) and Crestone International (founded in 1995) merged to create a powerhouse of PeopleSoft expertise, addressing the most complex of business requirements. Subsequently, CedarCrestone strategically invested in building out capabilities in Oracle's E-Business Suite and Fusion Technologies as well as our off-shore delivery model. Today we are an organization uniquely qualified to serve the most challenging needs of Oracle Enterprise Application customers.
And we are humbled by the fact that the market experts have taken notice. CedarCrestone is a recognized leader in delivering enterprise solutions by such authorities as Gartner in their ERP Services Magic Quadrant; by VAR Business in their 500 Top Solution Providers; and by Oracle as an award winning, top-tier, Certified Advantage Partner. In fact, our relationship with Oracle has never been stronger, including:

CedarCrestone’s services all utilize the Propel Methodology that embodies four distinct guiding principles:
* A strong methodology is imperative to realize client success; without it, the project's outcome is incalculable.
* The project approach is results oriented, ensuring that deliverables meet expectations and provide momentum for the next project phase.
* Key business decisions are made using a process driven approach, providing assurance that critical business processes are the factors that drive major decisions.
* To achieve a win/win result, the project approach must closely align with the client’s objectives; where differences lie, the methodology must offer flexibility.
The key differentiator of CedarCrestone’s Propel Methodology is its "process driven" approach, which is evident in the Preview and subsequent fit/gap or prototyping sessions. The Preview accelerates fact-finding to enable decision making earlier in the project, while the facilitated fit/gap or Interactive Design and Prototyping (IDP) sessions focus on the client’s business requirements.
The CedarCrestone Propel Methodology graphic highlights five project phases, with robust project management being omnipresent. CedarCrestone maintains a continuous focus
on the client, which is clearly indicated by placing the
client at the hub.
