Hologic Case Study

Client Profile

Hologic develops, manufactures and supplies diagnostic products, medical imaging systems, and surgical products for women's healthcare needs. The company also develops equipment for molecular diagnostic products and analysis applications. Hologic’s revenue was $2.49B in 2013 and they currently employ over 6000 people globally.

Client Situation

Hologic grew rapidly, both organically and by acquisition and as they grew they adopted a lean approach to IT with a small permanent staff supplemented by consulting partners. When Hologic acquired another organization they would need help to supplement their small IT team to integrate the IT systems from the two merging companies.

Apps Associates Solution

Hologic was a small company when they first purchased Oracle’s E-Business Suite (EBS) back in 2002 and they invited Apps Associates to help them implement it. The partnership which began with Apps Associates providing IT project support matured as both organizations grew. Today, Apps Associates not only supports Hologic with IT project work but also provides managed services from technology to functional support and help desk problem resolution. Apps Associates provides support for EBS, Oracle BI and Oracle Fusion Applications. As Hologic grew overseas, Apps Associates, through its global footprint, was able to provide support in North America, Europe, Australia, and across Asia. Whenever Hologic completed an acquisition they worked with apps Associates to manage the IT integration. Apps Associates has helped with at least seven acquisitions, on one occasion managing the migration from SAP to Oracle within one of the purchased companies.
