The National Broadband Network Company today confirmed it was in “detailed negotiations” with Oracle after it picked the software giant to supply its enterprise resource planning software.
“NBN Co has selected Oracle as it preferred provider of enterprise resource planning software solutions,” a spokesperson for the company said this afternoon, confirming a story by ZDNet.com.au earlier today.
“It is yet to finalise the detailed negotiations. In preparation we are advertising for suitably qualified candidates including those experienced with financial and billing systems.” The company added it has yet to determine its complete software suite for billing, with that area being subject to a separate request for capability statement for operational support systems and business support systems (OSS/BSS).
That request for capability statement was issued late last Friday, and states that vendors have until 26 February (tomorrow) to indicate their intention to respond. NBN Co then expects to issue a formal request for proposal document by June this year.
