Oracle Customer Success

Kagool grows flagship application while moving to Oracle Cloud

Summary

Kagool, a leading systems integrator in UK, reduces deployment time from months to weeks and accelerates growth by running their flagship application with Enterprise Database Service. Oracle's Enterprise Database Service helped in shortening time to market by rapidly provisioning database environments for creating and testing innovative, enterprise-level business applications.

 

Business challenges

Kagool has expertise in the data management and SAP digital services space, providing data solutions and services predominantly to the manufacturing and supply chain sector. Its proprietary Kagool Data Platform (KDP) delivers real-time monitoring, reporting, and automation of data activities, helping clients to control, manage, and understand their data and increase operational productivity. 

Kagool was looking to grow its key service by offering its customers the fastest deployments possible combined with the ability to scale without needing to worry about infrastructure investment. Proactive businesses should be prepared for the changes that Industry 4.0 is bringing. As experts in the sector, Kagool is positioned to cater to the most demanding SAP and data-lead requirements, aligned with these new challenges.

Also, the company hoped to grow by enabling customers to increase the scale and scope of its Kagool applications without needing to expand infrastructure resources. At the same time, it wanted to reduce the potential loss of business when customers retired on-premises hardware—running Kagool’s data management application—in favor of cloud infrastructure.

In addition, Kagool needed to minimize time to value for customers by developing and deploying innovative enterprise applications faster and with less risk, while improving services for enterprise customers by supporting their cloud strategies and enhancing IT support and monitoring capabilities.

Oracle Database Cloud Enterprise Edition Service reduced our customer deployment timeline from months to weeks, which opens up markets previously unavailable to us. By offering our customers a SaaS model, we can now talk to them about improved cost management and agility to take on new opportunities in the fastest turnaround times possible.

Why Kagool chose Oracle

By leveraging the elastic resources of Oracle Database Cloud Service—delivering compute, memory, and storage whenever needed—Kagool could grow as fast as the business demands. Previously, expansion was greatly hindered by the size of customers’ existing on-premises systems.

Migrating to Oracle helped Kagool realize rapid growth and expansion into new markets. It deployed Oracle Database Cloud Enterprise Edition Service to run its flagship application—simplifying and accelerating deployments, enhancing development agility, and providing unlimited customer scalability.

Results

Kagool reduced deployment time from months to weeks, as customers no longer need to plan for and provision space in their own data centers or run additional security and governance checks before going live with Kagool’s software.

It also minimized the risk of losing customers about to transition their hardware—used for running Kagool’s application—to cloud infrastructure by offering them a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model instead of needing to undertake a costly reimplementation. And thanks to the ability of Oracle Database Cloud Enterprise Edition Service to rapidly provision database environments for creating and testing innovative, enterprise-level business applications, Kagool shortened time to market.

Kagool’s development team had the agility to improve its core homegrown application—which helps large organizations integrate and analyze SAP workloads and is built using Oracle Application Express—by deploying an additional instance of Oracle Database Cloud for internal use.

The company's IT consultancy service levels improved by enabling customer support and migration teams to work more flexibly, with remote access to Oracle Database Cloud Enterprise Edition Service from any location.

Our 30-day trial of Oracle Database Cloud Service confirmed its potential to move our customers quickly and easily to a SaaS model. We also evaluated various scenarios with Google, AWS, and Azure, but found that Oracle offered lower risk, stronger application performance, and less complexity when scaling.
