Mexico school system saves 80% moving to Oracle Cloud
“With Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, we now have one of the best worldwide solutions at an affordable cost.”
As a consortium of 20 high schools in Mexico City and the surrounding areas, the Colegio de Bachilleres serves 100,000 students in its regular classrooms and 10,500 students in online classes.
Over the years, Colegio de Bachilleres invested large sums of public resources in new equipment such as servers, databases, software updates, and maintenance to keep its systems properly running for its students and teachers. Since expenses with maintenance and the purchase of new hardware and software were getting too high, Colegio de Bachilleres’ IT team turned to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to meet the school’s needs.
Why Colegio de Bachilleres chose Oracle
Colegio de Bachilleres needed a cloud-based tech infrastructure modernization that would handle a growing number of simultaneous users of the school’s systems, while also reducing operational costs for electricity, maintenance, and security. IT leaders selected Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to significantly cut its costs and also help it comply with Mexico’s environmental program, which promotes sustainable use of the country’s natural resources.
By moving to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, Colegio de Bachilleres was able to close its data centers, so it now consumes 50% less energy overall. The school reduced infrastructure costs by 80% and saved $210,000 in planned technology updates.
The move to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure increased processing capacity, enhanced data security, and improved system performance by 40%. It reduced the school’s paper use by 80%, by letting it move the majority of administrative tasks online. Likewise, online self-service capabilities for students have decreased administrative workload by 30%, giving administrators more time to focus on high-value tasks.
