    The Oracle Excellence Awards are open to any organization that uses services under the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure umbrella and has achieved extraordinary results leveraging our technologies.

  • What are Oracle’s goals for the awards?

    We have two main goals: to celebrate our extraordinary customers and to showcase their remarkable success stories on Oracle.com.

  • How will winners be recognized?

    To prioritize the health and safety of our customers, we’ll present the awards virtually, highlight winners on the awards homepage, and ship each winner’s trophy to their preferred mailing address.

  • How many finalists will be announced in each category?

    We expect a high volume of submissions, so we’ll announce up to five finalists per category. Each finalist will receive a trophy to honor their achievement.
