The first university in Jordan to fully adopt Oracle Cloud achieves 40% performance improvement over its older systems.


Oracle Cloud has proven to be an invaluable asset in enhancing the overall efficiency and resilience of our academic and administrative operations. It has become an integral part of our commitment to providing a secure, innovative, and cost-effective digital environment for our university community.

Zarqa University experienced challenges with its existing systems related to performance in peak times, scalability, high maintenance costs, security, and the complexity of systems such as finance and student registration. With the help of partner ITCC, the university adopted Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). The university saw a 60% cost savings after eliminating hardware costs and data center maintenance contracts. System performance increased by 40%, even during peak times such as student registration. OCI helped Zarqa reduce risks and freed staff from remaining on call for support.
