Oracle provides Specialized partners with the methodologies, resources, and tools to deliver their own hardware installation services. Based on Oracle's Enterprise Installation Services (EIS) methodology, installations performed by Specialized partners are recognized by Oracle for the purposes of support and product warranty.
Specialization is mandatory for a partner to be recognized as qualified to install the products defined by that specific Specialization.
Partners that perform installations are required to accept the Oracle Installation Service Addendum. Partners are also required to report installations to Oracle.
