Our company grew by 40% over the last several years, and our legacy systems could not support that level of rapid growth. We turned to Oracle to build an end-to-end cloud solution that was flexible, scalable, and secure—helping to propel us into the future.

— Srini Subramanian, CEO, Inspirage

Our disparate legacy applications no longer supported our rapidly growing business. The Oracle Cloud solution provided us with a comprehensive platform for extending insight that supports more strategic business decisions and improving the productivity of our business across the globe.

— Srini Subramanian, CEO, Inspirage

Execution

Inspirage looked to the Oracle Cloud to build a complete, end-to-end solution. Rolling out five cloud solutions concurrently is no easy feat, so Inspirage leveraged its own Rapid Value Implementation Methodology to simplify and speed the process.

“Rather than trying to continually modify our legacy systems that were not designed to work together, we looked at Oracle Cloud applications because we knew they would offer us a flexible, secure, and scalable solution that we could implement quickly,” Subramanian said.
