Jakarta—October 20, 2023
In the ever-evolving landscape of education and philanthropy, the Putera Sampoerna Foundation has always been at the forefront of innovation and excellence. Founded in 2001 by Putera Sampoerna, the foundation has been dedicated to improving the quality of education in Indonesia and empowering the nation's youth. The foundation recognized the need to upgrade its financial and procurement systems to continue its mission efficiently. This marked the beginning of a transformative journey, and the choice was clear: Oracle ERP Cloud.
The Putera Sampoerna Foundation needs an integrated and comprehensive ERP Cloud system that can meet the needs of users from the operational level to the top level to obtain accurate and up-to-date information. They need to have a reliable, integrated, effective, and efficient Procure-to-Pay and Planning-Budgeting system within all their entities that can be used as a management tool in reporting, planning, and decision-making as well as being able to optimize the added value of the use of information technology.
“We've been using Oracle technology for 10 years, from the E-Business Suite to nowadays adopting Oracle Cloud Solutions. There's an obstacle in the routine to manage on the on-premise system. As the corporate business grows, we need a system that is scalable, high availability, and secure. And with the advancement of technology all shifting to the cloud, we have to follow the evolution of the times to switch to Oracle Cloud Solutions”, said Yusuf Setiyono, Head of Information Technology, Putera Sampoerna Foundation.
Oracle ERP Cloud Solution
After a thorough evaluation, the Putera Sampoerna Foundation made the strategic decision to implement Oracle ERP Cloud. The choice was driven by Oracle's reputation for cutting-edge technology, scalability, and the ability to cater to the specific needs of nonprofit organizations. Oracle ERP Cloud offered a unified platform that integrated financial management, procurement, and reporting, providing the foundation with a holistic view of its operations.
Legacy System Integration The Putera Sampoerna Foundation already had existing legacy systems that needed to be integrated with the new Oracle Cloud Application Solutions. This integration posed challenges related to data migration, system compatibility, and ensuring a seamless flow of information. Oracle Cloud Application Solutions provided robust integration capabilities, including pre-built connectors and APIs, enabling smooth integration with legacy systems and ensuring data consistency and accuracy across platforms.
Customization Requirements Every customer has unique business processes and requirements that may require customization of the ERP system. However, extensive customization can be complex, time-consuming, and costly. Oracle Cloud Applications Solutions offered a flexible and configurable platform that allowed the Partner and customer to tailor the system to their specific needs without resorting to extensive customization. The solutions offered pre-built industry-specific modules and configuration options that could be easily adapted to align with the customer's processes.
Scalability and Growth Oracle Cloud Applications Solutions addressed these challenges by offering a scalable and flexible platform that could accommodate the customer's growing needs. The solutions were designed to handle large volumes of data, support multi-entity and multi-site operations, and easily scale up or down as the business requirements evolved.
Security & Compliance Data security and regulatory compliance are major concerns for organizations, especially when implementing cloud-based solutions. Oracle Cloud Applications Solutions provided robust security features and compliance certifications, ensuring the Putera Sampoerna Foundation’s data was protected and met industry-specific regulations. The solutions offered advanced security controls, data encryption, user access management, and regular updates to address potential vulnerabilities.
The decision to implement Oracle ERP Cloud has proven to be a pivotal moment in the Putera Sampoerna Foundation's journey. By replacing its existing financial and procurement systems, the foundation has not only optimized its operations but also elevated its ability to fulfill its mission of improving education and empowering the youth of Indonesia. With streamlined financial processes, improved procurement practices, and enhanced visibility, the foundation is better equipped to make a lasting impact on the lives of countless individuals.
In a rapidly changing world, the Putera Sampoerna Foundation's choice to embrace Oracle ERP Cloud showcases its commitment to excellence and innovation. This success story serves as an inspiring example of how technology can empower organizations to achieve their noblest goals and contribute to the betterment of society. As they continue their journey, the foundation's transformation will undoubtedly ripple through generations, leaving an enduring legacy of education and empowerment.

About Putera Sampoerna Foundation
Since 2001, the Putera Sampoerna Foundation has been guided by our four pillars: Education, Women Empowerment, Entrepreneurship, and Compassionate Relief. However, in 2015, we recognized the importance of education in molding the minds of the next generation. With education as our sole pillar, we realized that its contribution to the nation could be maximized by making quality international education available to every Indonesian youth.
With education now as our primary focus, the Putera Sampoerna Foundation launched the first fully integrated education system in Indonesia, the Sampoerna Schools System — a seamless pathway from Pre-Kindergarten through to University education.
