Premio Foods – Case Study

Cintra modernizes SPARC platform for gourmet food manufacturer’s critical Oracle E-Business Suite application. The new SPARC platform was delivered with minimal risk and disruption in just six weeks, ensuring the business was ready for peak production season.

Premio Foods’ Oracle EBS implementation was running on legacy Sun SPARC architecture with third-party storage. The storage was approaching end-of-life, while the server was costing Premio significant amounts in annual support fees.

Cintra architected a new platform that could be delivered in time for Premio Foods’ peak production season. We then successfully delivered it and migrated the E-Business Suite system across, before transitioning into an ongoing Managed Services arrangement.



  • Platform implementation and migration plan met upgrade needs, timescales and budgets
  • Oracle E-Business Suite runs 5x faster on new Oracle SPARC S7 platform
  • Successful migration leads to ongoing Managed Services partnership


“Cintra’s proposed approach would take just a third of the time, compared to the alternatives. It was the only solution that could be in place before our busy season.”

Jim Bopp, Senior IT Director, Premio Foods
