Colegio de Bachilleres boosts system performance with Oracle IaaS and PaaS

Summary

Colegio de Bachilleres standardizes tech infrastructure on a single solution, saves US$210,000, and enhances data security with Oracle.

Colegio de Bachilleres is a secondary school administrated by the Mexican federal government as part of the Secretariat of Public Education. 

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 started looking for an integrated solution that could meet its needs at a lower cost in the medium/long term.

Business challenges

Improve the platform’s performance to meet the school’s increasing demand and a high volume of simultaneous access to Colegio de Bachilleres’ systems (school administration and management, certification exams, library and educational virtual resources, etc.)

Reduce expenses with tech infrastructure maintenance, new purchases, applications updates, and license fees 

Ensure that the institution’s systems would keep working even under adverse conditions such as electrical failures, fire, demonstrations, and natural disasters

Strengthen data security standards

With Oracle IaaS and PaaS, we have a seamless, robust infrastructure that increased our processing capacity, improved our performance by 40%, and enhanced our coherent security, while meeting the demand for an increasing volume of simultaneous access to our online system. It also saved us US$210,000 in tech updates.

Results

Standardized the school’s tech infrastructure on a single solution, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Dedicated Compute Classic, and strengthened data security by  facilitating maintenance and technical support 

Saved US$210,000 in expenses with a much-needed tech infrastructure modernization— Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Dedicated Compute Classic costs 20% of the total calculated for an entire tech infrastructure refreshment and eliminated the need for additional operational costs such as electricity, maintenance and security costs

Improved the IT team’s response time on requests for adjustments and new platform features by 40%, as it is much simpler to work with a single, integrated infrastructure

Halved the time needed to develop new applications, since Oracle Cloud makes it much easier to expand processing and storage capacity—Colegio de Bachilleres previously had to send extra budget requests to the government for new equipment purchasing

Allowed the company’s IT team to dedicate more time to innovation and new feature developments to improve the school’s services

Expedited user activities on the system by 30%, while eliminating availability errors—students and teachers can access online data such as school management information and book availability much faster—which has drastically reduced the number of complaints on services offered by the school

Enhanced data security, while avoiding additional expenses associated with the rental of an external equipment room to ensure data security and access in case of adverse conditions such as natural disasters or employee strikes, since the institution’s infrastructure now runs on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Dedicated Compute Classic

Partners

Soultech’s team played a key role in the implementation process. It really understood our needs and even solved some minor issues that we had not foreseen,”said Noé Reynoso Rojas, Director of Statistics and Information and Communication Technologies, Colegio de Bachilleres.

Refreshing our entire technology infrastructure would have been more complex, time-consuming, and expensive than migrating to Oracle Cloud—and since we are financed by federal resources, the budget impact was a crucial factor in our decision. With Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Dedicated Compute Classic, we now have one of the best worldwide solutions at an affordable cost.
