TekStream Solutions Named Finalist for 2015 Oracle Excellence Award at Oracle OpenWorld

The Atlanta-based Technology Company’s Innovative Portal Project with Sherwin-Williams
Recognized As Top Performer in Digital Experience & Engagement Category


Atlanta, GA (December 10, 2015) – TekStream Solutions is excited to announce that it was named a finalist for the Oracle Excellence Award in Digital Experience & Engagement for its innovative “mySherwin” project with Sherwin-Williams.

The Oracle Excellence Awards program recognizes customers and partners that have excelled in driving business value together with Oracle, and TekStream was among a group of six Oracle Partners that were honored for their innovative implementations in 2015. Striving for success is what drives Oracle and its partners like TekStream to continually discover state-of-the-art uses for Oracle technology and to deploy groundbreaking solutions.

The mySherwin portal project had previously been selected out of thousands of submissions to be a signature conference session at Oracle OpenWorld 15, so this Oracle Excellence Award recognition was really the cherry on top of an exciting week for the TekStream & Sherwin-Williams team.

More about the award-winning project:

Name: mySherwin 2.0

The Opportunity:

Sherwin-Williams wanted to take their digital experience to the next level by combining employee communication platforms, adding multi-language capabilities to accommodate their worldwide employee base and by creating a responsive & mobile friendly portal for employees on the go.

The Solution:

TekStream helped Sherwin-Williams consolidate their two communications systems into a single mySherwin platform which enabled them to upgrade their outdated portal to Oracle WebCenter Portal 11g. The company then implemented a content presenter that raised the number of concurrent users from 300 to 1,200 without slowing down page response time. As if that wasn’t enough, TekStream was able to boost user capability by allowing users to add and change content directly in the portal via Oracle WebCenter Content 11g.

The Results:

TekStream’s implementation displays the enormous benefits of integrating Oracle WebCenter Portal 11g and WebCenter Content 11g. Sherwin-Williams saw an ROI of 108% and experienced an annual savings of over $85,000. In addition, the organization received a 99% reduction in unplanned platform down time which allowed them to increase productivity by 10%. As a growing global company, Sherwin-Williams can now rely on a unique portal and content presenter that enable their employees to communicate and share content more effectively.
