UK-Based Mid-Size Online Sports Retailer Wiggle Uses Oracle to Support Double-Digit Growth

Oracle Database News - Tue, 01/17/2017 - 19:00
Press Release UK-Based Mid-Size Online Sports Retailer Wiggle Uses Oracle to Support Double-Digit Growth

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Jan 17, 2017

Today Oracle announced, focused exclusively on tri-sport products and services UK-head-quartered specialty ecommerce retailer Wiggle (www.wiggle.com) is using Oracle solutions to sustain record sales and enable expansion into new markets. 

The leading global online tri-sports retailer, founded just nine years ago and which last year completed its acquisition of Chain Reaction Cycles (CRC), went live on 31st October 2016 with its new retail platform comprising Oracle Retail Merchandising System (ORMS) and Oracle Merchandise Financial Planning (OMFP). The new platform performed admirably throughout the peak trading period of both Black Friday and Christmas.

Wiggle, already using Oracle Cloud Services including Oracle Fusion Financials & Procurement and Oracle Business Intelligence, completed its implementation of Oracle Retail Merchandising and Planning in less than ten months following data cleansing and detailed design.

“To grow from $200 million to $400 million in revenue, we have changed the way that we invest in and use IT,” said Wiggle CIO Jeff Wollen. “The Oracle platform scales optimally to support our near and long-term growth objectives, while changing the way that we work and how we drive performance across categories and market segments.”

With the Oracle Retail solutions in place, Wiggle has grown its sales during the peak 2016 holiday shopping period, using promotions to drive traffic, aligning merchandise with demand and fulfilling customer transactions. The company is using Oracle tools to better understand and drive performance across operations to align orders, cost, price and suppliers to further improve both customer experience and margins.

The impact on Wiggle business operations is widespread and changes the productivity paradigm by empowering merchants to gain inventory efficiencies by reconciling plans and forecasts across functions; and identifying opportunities to increase the success for both supplier and retailer. Wiggle partnered with Hitachi Consulting and OLR Group to implement the Oracle Retail solutions in a very rapid timeline. 

“We are committed to making our best-in-class Oracle Retail solutions more accessible to midsize retailers like Wiggle. We are able to capture the learnings from our successful implementations around the globe to embed best practice into our offerings,” said Ray Carlin, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Oracle Retail. “With a cloud first strategy, we have an opportunity to deliver innovation even faster.”

Oracle Cloud Platform Expands to Help More Organizations Build and Deploy High-Performance Applications

Oracle Database News - Tue, 01/17/2017 - 14:00
Press Release Oracle Cloud Platform Expands to Help More Organizations Build and Deploy High-Performance Applications Organizations can now run enterprise-class Oracle Database workloads on an even broader array of IaaS options for outstanding performance and unparalleled flexibility

Oracle CloudWorld, New York—Jan 17, 2017

Continuing its rich history of delivering game-changing cloud services, Oracle today unveiled new enhancements to the Oracle Cloud Platform, making it even more compelling for customers to move business-critical applications to the cloud. The company announced two industry firsts: the availability of the Oracle Database Cloud Service on bare metal compute, and new virtual machine (VM) compute, load balancing, and storage capabilities, all on the same low latency, high performance modern IaaS platform. With these enhancements, Oracle Cloud Platform now delivers differentiated database performance at every scale, and deeply integrated IaaS capabilities, for customers of any size to easily develop, test, and deploy their business-critical applications in the cloud.

“These latest investments in the Oracle Cloud Platform provide a clear path to develop, test, and scale applications—with the Oracle Database or third-party databases. We offer customers the most comprehensive approach to moving to the cloud and accelerating their business strategies,” said Thomas Kurian, president, product development, Oracle. “Oracle provides the broadest and strongest choice of relational database cloud services that are 100 percent compatible with applications deployed on-premises, making it easy for customers to seamlessly move enterprise workloads to the cloud.”

The Oracle Database Cloud Service, both on virtualized and high performance bare metal compute servers is ideal for development, testing, and deployment of enterprise workloads. The recently announced Oracle Database Exadata Express Cloud Service offers customers a low cost, fully managed service ideal for developers, business analysts, and midsized organizations. The Oracle Database Exadata Cloud Service delivers unparalleled performance for mission-critical data warehousing and transactional database workloads. Additionally, Oracle’s industry leading infrastructure platform design and uniquely differentiated network allow Oracle customers running Oracle Database on this modern IaaS platform to achieve over 50 times performance compared to any of the leading cloud database providers.*

“mFrontiers provides enterprise mobility management as a cloud service for enterprise customers. We find the Oracle Cloud Platform to be easy to use and truly elastic for provisioning and scaling out to additional customers. We’re especially impressed by the ability to scale Oracle Database performance up or down on Oracle IaaS, without interruption, a key requirement to maximize efficiency and availability,” said Michael Ottoman, president and COO at mFrontiers.

Further enhancing the Oracle Cloud Platform, new IaaS services expand support for web-scale and enterprise applications. Oracle IaaS now offers one, two, and four-core virtual machine (VM) shapes, which run on the same low latency, high performance Virtual Cloud Network (VCN) as its bare metal compute shapes, block volumes, and object storage. This is an industry first. In addition, a new Load Balancing Service adds three provisioned bandwidth shapes—100Mbps, 400Mbps, and 8Gbps—supporting a range of application traffic, high availability, and security needs. Other enhancements include a new block storage shape (2TB) and encryption-at-rest for object storage.

“The Oracle Cloud Platform provides superior performance in terms of price, predictability, and throughput, with a low cost pay-as-you-go cloud model,” said Sam Mahalingam, chief technical officer, Altair. “We are delighted to partner with Oracle to provide High Performance Computing (HPC) solutions with Altair's PBS Works for the Oracle Cloud.”

Oracle Cloud

Oracle Cloud is the industry’s broadest and most integrated public cloud, offering a complete range of services across SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS. It supports new cloud environments, existing ones, and hybrid, and all workloads, developers, and data.  The Oracle Cloud delivers nearly 1,000 SaaS applications and 50 enterprise-class PaaS and IaaS services to customers in more than 195 countries around the world and supports 55 billion transactions each day.

Oracle Expands Cloud Services Globally with Three New Regions in North America and EMEA

Oracle Database News - Tue, 01/17/2017 - 14:00
Press Release Oracle Expands Cloud Services Globally with Three New Regions in North America and EMEA Supports customer and partners with unprecedented levels of performance and availability for their most demanding cloud applications

Oracle CloudWorld, New York—Jan 17, 2017

Continuing its commitment to its cloud customers through extensive engineering and infrastructure investments, Oracle today announced plans to bring three new Regions online over the next six months. The regional expansion of Oracle’s cloud footprint will include Reston, Virginia; London, UK; and Turkey. The new Regions are expected to come online by mid-2017. With this expansion, Oracle will have doubled the regional presence of its cloud platform in the last 24 months, with 29 Regions available globally. Additional Regions are planned to come online in APAC, North America, and the Middle East through mid-2018.   

Organizations are turning to Oracle at record-rates to build, deploy, and extend game-changing applications and run business-critical workloads in a low-latency, highly available, reliable and secure cloud environment. Today, customers in 195 countries are running their most demanding applications on the Oracle Cloud Platform. 

“Oracle is committed to building the most differentiated Cloud Platform that delivers on the requirements of a wide array of customer workloads,” said Deepak Patil, vice president of development, Oracle Cloud Platform. “This regional expansion underscores our commitment to making the engineering and capital investments required to continue to be a global large scale cloud platform leader.”

Each of Oracle’s planned new cloud regions will consist of a minimum of three high bandwidth, low latency sites – or Availability Domains (ADs). These ADs are to be located several miles from each-other and operate in a completely fault-independent manner. This unique, differentiated approach provides the highest levels of failure protection and availability to Oracle customers’ most demanding cloud applications. Availability Domains are deeply integrated into the Oracle Cloud Platform, easing use and eliminating complex architectural decision-making around availability.

“We’ve been consistently impressed with the speed, availability and price of Oracle’s Bare Metal Cloud. This has, in turn, helped us grow our business across the world,” said Gareth Williams, CEO, YellowDog. “The new EMEA Regions will enable us to offer an improved service to our high-end customers in Europe who look to YellowDog to deliver not only super-fast, super-secure and high availability cloud rendering, but also super-low latency.”

Oracle Cloud Continues Exceptional Customer Momentum

Oracle Database News - Tue, 01/17/2017 - 14:00
Press Release Oracle Cloud Continues Exceptional Customer Momentum Customers of all sizes and from all industries drive innovation and accelerate success with Oracle Cloud

Oracle CloudWorld, New York—Jan 17, 2017

Oracle today announced that the Oracle Cloud continues to experience unparalleled growth, adding thousands of customers in Q2 FY17. Leading organizations across more than 195 countries and countless industries rely on Oracle Cloud to help reduce cost and complexity, while gaining a competitive advantage in their respective markets.  Oracle Cloud today manages more than 55 billion transactions each day for companies ranging from Fortune 500s to emerging challengers, including Brinks, Doosan, Falkonry, G&J Pepsi Bottling, GE, Pernod Ricard, RadioShack, Safe Ports, T-Mobile, Trek, University of Kansas, and Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.

“Leading organizations are looking to Oracle for comprehensive cloud solutions that enable them to quickly integrate, customize, and extend as they continue migrating their business to the cloud,” said Thomas Kurian, president, product development, Oracle. “With the Oracle Cloud, customers are offered unrivaled choice and flexibility for their critical business workloads and applications.”

Oracle continues to see explosive customer adoption with more and more organizations moving their most demanding cloud applications to the Oracle Cloud. Organizations are turning to Oracle at record-rates to build, deploy and extend game-changing applications and run business-critical workloads in a low-latency, highly available, more reliable and secure cloud environment. Oracle is increasing its commitment to cloud customers through extensive infrastructure investments including the global expansion of its Regions to deliver Oracle Cloud services. Oracle Cloud is the industry’s broadest and most integrated public cloud, including SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS. In the past two years alone, Oracle has delivered more than 50 PaaS and IaaS services to market and introduced new deployment options like Oracle Cloud at Customer, providing unparalleled opportunity for customers.

Customers Drive Innovation and Business Transformation with Oracle Cloud

“As one of the largest family-owned and operated Pepsi franchise bottlers that employs more than 1,650 people at multiple locations across different production facilities, we needed a better way to drive efficiencies and engage with employees,” said Christina Walker, Executive Vice President, Human Resources, G&J Pepsi-Cola Bottlers, Inc. “Oracle HCM Cloud did just that—improving our HR management efficiency by boosting recruiting and onboarding effectiveness so we could identify top talent faster and more cost efficiently, leveraging social media to increase candidate pools from 20 to up to 300 people for a job, and delivering self-service capabilities for employees while also giving managers instant access to updated HR information needed to effectively manage their teams. All of this while being intuitive and eliminating the hassle of excess paperwork. Oracle has helped transform the role of human resources in the organization from recordkeeping to a true strategic business partner.”

“GE is transforming from an industrial business to the leading digital industrial and a top 10 software vendor. Cloud adoption is critical for this transformation as GE Digital markets its industrial internet cloud,” said Pradeep Juttu, director of Integration Architecture at GE Digital. “As we embarked on implementing, we needed a partner who would join us in this transformation as we looked to implement an ERP Cloud, and Oracle is that partner—Oracle SaaS and PaaS (Oracle ERP Cloud, Oracle CPQ Cloud, and Oracle Integration Cloud) have become vital to GE Digital’s business operations.”

“With a staff of less than 100 people, we rely on third-party vendors to manage many of our technology systems. When one of the vendors needed to be replaced, we standardized on Oracle as other vendors failed to meet our needs,” said Brian Vogelsmeier, Director of Information Technology, MCH Strategic Data. “We selected Oracle Cloud—Oracle Database Cloud Service, Oracle Compute Cloud Service and Oracle Storage Cloud Service—for our in-house application development and testing environment in order to provision new database environments fast, accelerate time to market from months to weeks, scale to meet business growth and increased workloads, and securely share data with clients.”

“By deploying our Oracle Retail Merchandising System on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure as a Service and Platform as a Service, we are able to reduce our physical server footprint and get faster access to new releases. The end result is better performance and lower costs,” said David Rawls, vice president of technology, RadioShack. “We also can extend compute power at the click of a button, which is especially important during the holiday surge. The bottom line is very powerful—Oracle Cloud delivers greater stability, security, flexibility, and simplicity.

“We use Oracle Cloud Infrastructure as a Service to quickly provision Oracle workloads, as well as install custom-built applications for non-Oracle workloads,” said Sergei Petrov, CTO, Safe Ports. “The communication and integration between the two is seamless because they run on the same environment and gives us a major advantage.”

“Our mission is to continue to be the world’s best bicycle company and for us, that goes well beyond the bike itself. Continuing to modernize our offerings to deliver the best customer experience is critical,” said Girish Washikar, Global ERP Technical Manager, Trek Bicycle Corporation. “Using Oracle SOA Cloud and Oracle Developer Cloud Services, as well as Oracle’s Infrastructure as a Service will enable us to support continuous growth in global markets by providing increased stability, efficiency and availability of our mission critical SOA infrastructure.  With Oracle Mobile Cloud Service, we are developing Mobile Apps which enable our dealers to provide better customer experiences by delivering information and services where and when they need them.”

Oracle Launches Oracle Code Events for Modern Cloud Development

Oracle Database News - Tue, 01/17/2017 - 14:00
Press Release Oracle Launches Oracle Code Events for Modern Cloud Development New event series helps developers learn how to build modern web, mobile, enterprise and Cloud-native applications

Oracle CloudWorld, New York—Jan 17, 2017

Oracle has a rich history of building platforms and developer-focused technologies that are loved and used by millions of developers around the globe. In continuation of its commitment to invest in the developer community—Oracle today announced that attendee registration and call for papers are now open for Oracle Code, a free event series that will bring developers together to learn about the latest technologies, best practices and industry trends. Starting March 1 in San Francisco, the Oracle Code event series will give attendees the insights they need to tackle development challenges in the Cloud through a combination of keynotes, technical sessions and hands-on labs delivered by industry luminaries, community members and Oracle experts. In total, there will be events in 20 cities across North America, Europe, Asia and South America in 2017.

As every industry and every business goes through the inevitable transformation around Cloud computing, developers continue to look to extend their expertise to Cloud migration, management and Cloud-native development. They are looking to quickly create applications with microservices, APIs, containers, machine learning, mobile backends and chatbots using modern DevOps processes. They need rich and robust platform capabilities including big data and analytics, integration, management and monitoring, mobility and Internet of Things (IoT). Developers want the ability to choose any programming language, database, operating system, virtualization technology and developer tool, including open source and third party options. They need the ability to deploy in the Cloud or on-premises with portability and interoperability.

Oracle Code helps developers continue learning about new and trending open source technologies such as Kafka/Spark, Docker/Kubernetes and diverse programming languages including Java, Javascript/Node.js, Python/PHP as well as databases such as Cassandra/MongoDB, MySQL and Oracle.

Oracle Database News - Mon, 01/16/2017 - 18:00
Press Release Panda Retail Company Deploys Oracle to Optimize Operations and Support Business Transformation Saudi Arabian Hypermarket, Supermarket and Convenience Store Chain Leverages Oracle Retail Solutions to Drive Performance

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Jan 16, 2017

Today, Oracle announced that Saudi Arabia’s largest supermarket retailer, The Panda Retail Company, has deployed the suite of Oracle Retail Merchandising, Oracle Retail Planning, Oracle Retail Supply Chain, and Oracle Retail Store Inventory Management to optimize core retail operations and underpin additional business diversity in line with its planned growth and customer centric strategy. The Panda Retail Company employs 25,000 people and operates more than 475 hypermarket, supermarket and convenience stores throughout Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Egypt.

The Oracle solutions will enable Panda to surface salient insights to critical performance indicators including sales, margin, inventory, and supplier activities, and will equip the business to make decisions that increase profitability and will enhance the customer experience. This empowered the organization to drive operations with one single version of the truth across all lines of business and to enable better decision making, including achieving the right balance between item availability and inventory position.

“To achieve our corporate goals, planned transformation initiatives and customer centric strategy, we needed the right systems, processes, and people in place. Oracle is uniquely qualified to support our current and future business strategy with retail rich end to end capabilities and best in class technology,” said Fawaz Kilfaden, Director of Information Technology at Panda Retail Company. “Ultimately, the goal of the program is to enrich the customer experience, improve performance and enhance our business governance across the enterprise.”

Panda adopted a flexible implementation strategy for its complete suite of solutions, including Oracle Retail Merchandise Operations Management, Oracle Retail Merchandise Financial Planning, Oracle Retail Demand Forecasting, Retail Merchandising Analytics and Oracle Retail Store Inventory Management.  The Oracle solutions replace legacy in-house and outdated vendor solutions that limited data access and lacked the roadmap to meet changing retail trends.  Panda wanted to put in place a system that would account for all of its retail and enterprise operations, and would afford greater flexibility for growth and innovation.

“We are pleased to continue to be part of Panda’s vibrant business and innovation, as the company expands its international presence. By leveraging the full suite of Oracle Retail, Panda is achieving the benefits of deep retail and global grocery expertise across their operations. We owe a debt of gratitude to our customers and partners who continue to inform our roadmap and vision,” said Ray Carlin, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Oracle Retail.

Ricardo Eletro Reduces Operational Cost by 40m Brazilian Reais per Month with Oracle Retail

Oracle Database News - Fri, 01/13/2017 - 18:00
Press Release Ricardo Eletro Reduces Operational Cost by 40m Brazilian Reais per Month with Oracle Retail Brazilian Consumer Electronics Retailer Streamlines Operations with Oracle Retail Merchandising and Fiscal Management Solutions

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Jan 13, 2017

Today Oracle announced that Ricardo Eletro, the third largest retailer of consumer electronics in Brazil, has deployed Oracle Retail Merchandise Operations Management and Oracle Retail Fiscal Management to enable converged commerce, empower associates and increase operational efficiency. Ricardo Eletro faced the challenge of integrating more than 900 stores and 12 distribution centers in the midst of company transformation. 

The partnership between Oracle Retail and Ricardo Electro began eight years ago. In January 2016, following several mergers and the costly support of disparate systems and varying IT infrastructure maturity levels, the decision was to unify Ricardo Eletro under one brand, and a unified Oracle IT infrastructure. This collaboration empowered the Ricardo Eletro commercial department to optimize the market structure to facilitate open to buy, centralize management, and streamline pricing, while enabling adherance to federal regulations. 

"We needed to establish a foundation for the new organization. We evaluated the systems and existing investment of all our companies. Oracle emerged as the clear choice to establish a foundation for growth for Ricardo Eletro," said Edson Tavares, CIO of Ricardo Eletro.

“The ‘Unification’ project transformed the company with a simplified infrastructure, a unified workforce and a better appreciation of customers while reducing operation costs by 40M Brazilian Reais per month,” Said Vinicius Hamzi, Planning and Management Vice president of Ricardo Eletro. “Our team empowered the holding and operations teams with a culture of transparency and efficiency. We launched a Zero-Based Budget (ZBB) and we adopted the best practices and retail rich functionality of Oracle Retail and Oracle E-Business Suite.”

Ricardo Eletro selected Oracle Retail implementation partner BRX Retail to support this project. BRX Retail provided local resources with product experience, local understanding of Brazilian tax regulation and the implementation knowledge to deliver and respond quickly.

“With the implementation of Oracle, Ricardo Eletro has proven that there is power in simplicity. Ricardo Electro can now anticipate the needs of the stores and the online channels to better serve the consumers with a simplified an inspiring experience,” said Ray Carlin, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Oracle Retail. “Oracle has dedicated resources to localize the requirements for the Brazil market. Oracle Retail is thrilled to partner with Ricardo Eletro to extend its foundation for growth.”

Hamleys Deploys Oracle Retail Xstore Point-of-Service in 8 Months

Oracle Database News - Thu, 01/12/2017 - 14:00
Press Release Hamleys Deploys Oracle Retail Xstore Point-of-Service in 8 Months International Specialty Retailer Empowers Store Associates with In-Store Innovation

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Jan 12, 2017

Today Oracle announced leading International Toy Retailer Hamleys has deployed Oracle Retail Xstore Point-of-Service across its UK, Republic of Ireland and Finnish store estate. Hamleys is a respected international brand operating in 23 markets across EMEA, Asia and the Americas. Hamleys differentiates itself through its in-store experience for children and families with a product assortment that includes key brands as well as quality private/own brand products.

Hamleys partnered with MICROS prior to the acquisition by Oracle. Hamleys is one of the first customers to successfully and quickly transition from an older version of MICROS RJ to Oracle Retail Xstore Point-of-Service, a more global and strategic solution that supports the organization’s global needs.

“Oracle were identified as an opportunity for Hamleys to introduce a new epos solution which gives us many enhancements to improve customer offering whilst also offering improved trading terms as well as being compliant to the current version of PCI,” said David Oakley, Head of Information Technology, Hamleys. “Oracle delivered on time to support our critical Christmas trading season.”

Hamleys deployed the new Point-of-Service solution in less than 8 months on-time and within budget with Oracle Retail Consulting. The first store was live in six months followed by a rollout across the UK and Ireland. By late October, Hamleys was able to upgrade the 50 tills at the Regent Street London England flagship store location.

 “Oracle is dedicated to providing customers with a path to the latest and most appropriate version of mission-critical solutions like Point-of-Service. Our converged commerce solutions unify experiences, deliver common execution across touch points and provide consistent views of customer, order and inventory,” said Ray Carlin, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Oracle Retail. “We are empowering store associates to work the way they live, and use mobile devices to better participate in empowered commerce-retailing.”

Oracle Cloud Applications Drive Carbon’s Quest to Lead in 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing

Oracle Database News - Thu, 01/12/2017 - 14:00
Press Release Oracle Cloud Applications Drive Carbon’s Quest to Lead in 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing Carbon to streamline business processes across organizational development, manufacturing, finance, and services

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Jan 12, 2017

Carbon (Carbon, Inc.), whose CLIP (Continuous Liquid Interface Production) technology allows commercial customers to 3D print manufacturing grade components, has selected Oracle Cloud Applications to modernize its systems, transform business processes, and help ensure a secure, scalable, and connected cloud suite for the next phase of the company’s growth. Oracle’s Cloud Applications will enable Carbon to maintain a competitive edge in the dynamic additive manufacturing market by helping to increase business agility, lower costs, and reduce IT complexity.

Working at the intersection of hardware, software, and molecular science to deliver on the promise of 3D printing, Carbon sought a cloud solution that could be configured to its business needs and could keep pace with its anticipated rapid growth both domestically and globally. Carbon selected Oracle Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Cloud, Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud, Oracle Supply Chain Management (SCM) Cloud, and Oracle Service Cloud over SAP because of the strength of Oracle’s integrated breadth and depth of offerings, embedded analytics, and the modern, easy-to-use interface of its applications.

“As we evaluated our business needs, we knew we needed a future-proof cloud-based solution that could scale as we grow. Not only did we need a sales-ready product, but we also needed a sales-ready business organization,” said Chris Hutton, director of business operations at Carbon. “Oracle’s Cloud Applications help ensure our business processes are seamless so we can focus on delivering the best experience to every customer.”

Carbon’s deployment of Oracle’s comprehensive and modern suite of Cloud Applications will streamline business processes, and optimize collaboration and efficiencies in the following ways:

  • Oracle HCM Cloud will allow Carbon to leverage talent and workforce management offerings to provide an engaging and collaborative HR experience, and enhance how they find and retain quality employees
  • Oracle SCM Cloud will help transform supply chain operations to optimize cost, service levels, and the supply chain network
    • Oracle Manufacturing Cloud will streamline manufacturing processes through visualizations and real-time views into shop floor operations and work orders, while controlling costs
  • Oracle ERP Cloud will allow finance to spend more time on higher-value activities, such as analyzing results and advising the business on strategy
  • Oracle Service Cloud will help differentiate Carbon’s brand with intuitive, engaging experiences through the cloud for customers and employees alike

“Carbon has a vision to enable every member of their company to have a comprehensive 360-degree view of each customer. We are pleased to work with them to ensure our Cloud Applications deliver this visibility to support their ongoing success,” said Gretchen Alarcon, group vice president of product strategy at Oracle. “Oracle’s enterprise-grade Cloud Applications work together seamlessly to empower everyone from a relationship manager to Carbon’s CEO to see how all parts of the business are performing.”

Oracle delivers the industry’s broadest suite of enterprise-grade Cloud services, including Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and Data as a Service (DaaS).
