Applications Software Technology – Why Work For Us?


Applications Software Technology LLC (AST) was founded in 1995 as a specialized Oracle E-Business Suite systems integrator with the objective of helping customers realize the full potential of their investment in Oracle Applications. It was based on the premise that the success of an enterprise wide system implementation depended on an equal measure of specialization, investment in employees, software expertise, and an in-depth understanding of the industries we serve and a client's unique business processes.

Over the course of our corporate history, AST has successfully built upon our long‐standing, core Oracle E‐Business Suite practice in concert with Oracle’s acquisitions and technology evolution to include award‐winning and recognized non‐ERP practice areas: Oracle Business Intelligence (BI), Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management (EPM), Oracle Middleware, Oracle Service‐Oriented Architecture (SOA), Customer Relationship Management (CRM), and Oracle Cloud Services.

We specialize in managing transformative Oracle projects and consistently deliver consulting services of the highest quality. As a result AST is recognized as a premier systems integrator and a go-to partner for Oracle.

  • Oracle Excellence Award and Public Sector Partner of the Year: 2009, 2011 and 2013
  • Oracle Software Reseller, Training and Managed Cloud Services Partner
  • Oracle Elite Platinum Partner
  • Ranked among Top Ten ERP vendors in Federal, State, and Local Government in Onvia Government ERP Market Analysis (2014)
