PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP today announced that they are teaming with Oracle to leverage PwC's business advisory services and Oracle's technology to help organizations realize large scale, enterprise-wide transformational change. PricewaterhouseCoopers' advisory professionals will help clients anticipate, create and manage the impact of change on their organization, and will leverage technology to support and sustain effective change and business transformation.

"An accelerated rate of change, greater complexity and increased transparency have created new risks and opportunities in the market and led to an increase in business model restructuring," said Juan Pujadas, U.S. Advisory leader and managing partner, PricewaterhouseCoopers. "C-suite executives across industries are rushing to take advantage of a continually changing global marketplace and are looking for ways to fast-track value creation. PwC brings industry experience and fact-based consulting to help clients implement and sustain change across the enterprise -- and technology is a critical component to support and streamline business transformation."

PricewaterhouseCoopers will take an integrated, holistic approach to deliver business advisory services focused on helping clients in such areas as corporate performance management; human capital management; business intelligence; governance, risk and compliance; security, controls and access management; finance transformation; and the strategic deployment and use of Oracle's business applications and enabling technologies.

To demonstrate its commitment to providing clients with large scale, enterprise-wide consulting services that will include the implementation and integration of Oracle technologies, PricewaterhouseCoopers will participate as a Platinum sponsor of Oracle(r) OpenWorld 2007, taking place November 11-15, 2007 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA.

"The key to our relationship with PwC is the integration of proven processes, methodologies and experience with world class technology," said Rauline Ochs, senior vice president, North America Alliances and Channels at Oracle. " PricewaterhouseCoopers is a leader in providing business advisory services to some of the world's largest organizations, and by combining PwC's in-depth business and industry knowledge with Oracle's comprehensive suite of technology solutions, our mutual clients will gain an enterprise-wide approach to business issues, reduce costs, and optimize performance."
