Independent software vendors (ISVs) need cloud partners who deliver great price-performance, along with security, flexibility, and predictable costs. Whether your applications were born in the cloud or built from decades of industry expertise, Oracle Cloud offers the benefits of a complete, full-stack offering with the best performance at a market-leading price. Oracle Cloud has built-in security and automation that allows ISVs to scale faster and deliver a better user experience to all of your customers.
ISVs deliver better value to their customers with Oracle's wide range of enterprise SaaS and Industry Cloud Applications.
Oracle makes a significant and continuing investment in the innovation and development of our cloud applications to meet the evolving market demands and customer needs. As a result, you can benefit from this investment as well. The rapid and continuous pace of development means that current and leading cloud and industry applications are available for your integrated solutions.
Oracle's success depends on continuous innovation, and we help our customers and partners achieve the same through our commitments to research, rapid development and rollout of new features, and more. At Oracle, we:
Updates to most cloud applications are provided on a planned schedule which enables you to plan your resources for optimized development and release cycles that keeps customers current with your solution.
Innovate with Oracle in our SaaS solutions as we help drive growth with technologies including:
At Oracle, we take a very different approach to security than other cloud providers. We believe security should always be on, should default to maximum settings, and shouldn't be prohibitively expensive. We believe a major reason companies' systems are breached is because their security is so complex and often added to workloads after they start to scale, rather than designed in.
Our highly automated and secure cloud infrastructure is designed to run the most mission-critical, high-volume, and high-performance applications for customers of any size, and our cloud applications suite was developed with a focus on security first. An isolated design improves data protection, scalability, and performance. As part of a global ecosystem, the suite can connect securely to multicloud environments and other systems.
Oracle Fusion Cloud Applications Suite enables customers to benefit from the latest advances in the best technology, including industry-leading security, enterprise-grade scalability, and mission critical performance—all in a connected ecosystem. We do it all, so you can focus on innovation and serving your customers.
With Oracle's integrated suite of applications, customers spend less time and money implementing and integrating. This provides more opportunity to explore and engage your integrated solution to extend functionality, solve additional problems, and deliver successful outcomes for customers.
To simplify integration and management, our modern SaaS suite is built on a single, standards-based platform that includes a common, enterprise-wide data model; a unified user experience (including mobile and social); shared security levels; synchronized release schedules; and more.
With Oracle's modern and complete SaaS suite of applications built with AI and machine learning (ML) across all business functions, your solutions integrate with the latest advances in the best technology—ready when you need it. Your customers will spend less time analyzing requirements and integrating, managing, and upgrading hardware and software. Which frees them to be more innovative with your integration solution to solve problems and accelerate their business.
Building an integration with a complete SaaS suite and cloud applications built on an advanced cloud infrastructure is a good choice to gain business agility and be ready for growth. Hosting your integration solution on this same advanced cloud infrastructure makes Oracle a great choice.
At Oracle, we own all of the technology stack that powers our suite of cloud applications. And because we own the stack, we pass our cost savings on to you. Your business no longer needs to worry about maintaining a data center, hardware, operating systems, database, network, or all the security for the development and production needs of your integration solution.
Built on our own next-generation cloud platform and cloud infrastructure, we can support your integrations on the same advanced cloud infrastructure upon which Oracle cloud apps are built and enable them to benefit from the latest advances in technology.
As an ISV, you need predictable costs to plan your budgets and run your business. Running workloads in the cloud can make it extremely difficult to accurately forecast cost over time—but not with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI).
OCI delivers higher performance and lower costs for virtually every enterprise software application, and is consistently less expensive than AWS for a wide range of popular cloud workloads. Oracle has simple rate structures that eliminate the cost surprises associated with hard-to-estimate usage elements such as data egress or storage performance. And with public cloud regions across the globe, Oracle charges the same rates for all regions, so going global on Oracle Cloud doesn't increase the cost of service.
Enterprises demand more than just availability from their cloud infrastructure. Mission-critical workloads also require consistent performance, and the ability to manage, monitor, and modify resources running in the cloud at any time. Only Oracle offers end-to-end SLAs covering performance, availability, manageability of services.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) offers the opportunity to migrate or build and host your integration solutions with minimal re-architecture or reintegration, and delivers higher performance at lower cost than deployments running on-premises or on competitors' clouds. OCI includes all the core infrastructure and platform-as-a-service options to meet key needs of your solution. And with Oracle Lift Services, you can obtain free expert guidance from cloud engineers on planning, architecting, prototyping, and managing cloud migrations.
Oracle Cloud Lift dedicates its top engineers to quickly migrate eligible customer workloads to Oracle Cloud, enabling customers to derive value from OCI investments.
A dedicated group of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure experts will assist you from inception through go-live activities, including assessment, designing and prototyping, migration, and management to accelerate your time to value.
The Oracle Cloud Lift program includes available services globally and is a part of the customer's tenancy on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
Over the last few years, we've migrated more than 60 SaaS-based applications to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. These applications support core enterprise functions across eight industry verticals and more than 199,000 customers across the globe.
In this playbook, we share key challenges, lessons learned, best practices, and the benefits we've experienced on our own journey to cloud to quickly start cloud transformation work for you.
We have an open ecosystem which includes support for flexible deployment models. We want to help our customers avoid vendor lock-in by allowing integration through Oracle Cloud and Cloud@Customer using publicly documented, available and published API's.
Oracle Integration for Oracle SaaS, a streamlined version of Oracle Integration Cloud, gives you the features and benefits of Oracle Integration with a focus on SaaS to you get up and running faster with fewer integration complexities.

This deployment flexibility provides greater opportunity for your integration solution to deliver success in a consistent cloud environment that meets the needs of your customers without maintaining separate solutions per environment.
If you're already an Oracle partner that integrates with our on-premises applications and technology programs and paying for software license support, then moving your integration to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) has its rewards for you. With Oracle Support Rewards, the more that you use, the more you save. Customers earn $0.25 to $0.33 in rewards for every $1 spent on OCI. Then apply those rewards to reduce your tech software license support bill, even down to zero1.
