By adopting the scalable Oracle Database Cloud Service, we can easily develop and deploy applications in a short time and provide high-quality, hands-on training courses to students. Oracle Cloud Platform also saved us time and costs to maintain the database, enabling us to focus on fostering talent.

Namseoul University Rapidly Launches Three New Database Training Courses and Enhances Student Satisfaction with Oracle

Namseoul University is a Christian school that focuses on the ideas of love, creativity, and service. By providing high-quality and forward-looking curriculum, the University aims to foster talent to become intelligent and moral 21st century leaders.    

Students at the Engineering College were required to take database training courses, leading to substantially increased demand. However, Namseoul University’s legacy on-premises environment could not support the business needs. As a result, the University wanted to improve development efficiency and cut maintenance costs by migrating its educational programs to the cloud.
 
Challenges
  • Improve students’ skill sets in database development and enhance their experience by adopting a database cloud solution to enable rapid development and deployment for hands-on training courses
  • Increase the efficiency of database maintenance through initiatives, such as configuration and patching and reduce operating cost
Results
  • Accelerated application development and launched three new database training courses with Oracle Database Cloud Service by enabling the University to quickly create and modify the database for training applications in real time and deploy them from any web browser or mobile device
  • Delivered high-quality training classes and enhanced students’ skill sets in database development by making it easier for professors to provide feedback to students—through channels such as running SQL statements—with the intuitive user interface and RESTful Web Service of Oracle Database Cloud Service
  • Lowered the total cost of ownership to manage the infrastructure for educational programs by allowing the University to easily configure and maintain the database with Oracle Database Cloud Service 
  • Increased student satisfaction by raising the standard of hands-on training courses and supporting future curriculum planning

 

With the increased demand for Oracle Database skills from our graduates who are working in many global IT companies, we felt that Oracle Database Cloud Service was the perfect choice to develop our curriculum and educational programs.
