Oracle Platform as a Service and Oracle Infrastructure as a Service were natural choices as far as moving to the cloud, and the move was easy. Our FlexDeploy solution is a Java-based application, so we could move it with no changes onto Oracle Java Cloud Service, and we were up and running in no time.

— Dan Goerdt, President, Flexagon

Execution

“The ease in moving between on-premises solutions—Oracle and third-party offerings—and Oracle’s cloud ensured a smooth migration,” Goerdt said. “We moved an instance of FlexDeploy to Oracle Java Cloud Service in just 15 minutes when we began this journey.”

“FlexDeploy enables customers to perform faster, better, and cheaper, leveraging both on-premises Oracle products and Oracle IaaS or Oracle PaaS solutions. Using FlexDeploy with Oracle’s cloud services is a huge opportunity to empower businesses to accelerate software delivery, reduce costs, and improve quality and agility,” Goerdt said.
