Migrate Oracle On-Premises Applications to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

From back-office applications, such as Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, Siebel, and Hyperion, to industry-specific solutions, like Oracle Retail Merchandising and FLEXCUBE, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) offers improved performance and availability, up to 39% lower TCO, and simpler migration for all Oracle on-premises applications.

OCI not only makes it easy to migrate your workloads and leverage immediate benefits—but also to incrementally optimize them, deriving more value over time with new integrations to other applications and new user experiences, such as digital assistants, improved data preparation, and visualization. Thousands of customers are benefitting from moving one or more of these applications to OCI, including entire back offices and data centers.

The business case for moving to OCI

Oracle offers a broad range of applications to support back-office and industry-specific business processes across manufacturing, healthcare, financial services, retail, education, and beyond. These solutions can be migrated to OCI for a lower TCO than on-premises, improved performance, a pathway to modernize business operations, and a simplified overall application ecosystem with native OCI services, such as Oracle Integration Cloud.

E-Business Suite

Oracle E-Business Suite applications help organizations of all sizes to manage the complexities of global business environments across human resources, finance, supply chain, and inventory. With OCI, you can keep the Oracle E-Business Suite you know while taking advantage of the operational and cost benefits of the cloud. Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager—an automated migration and provisioning tool only available on OCI—facilitates rapid deployment while maintaining key customizations and integrations. Following migration to OCI, you can incrementally optimize your application ecosystem with OCI services, such as application integration, which connects any on-premises, SaaS, and custom applications—automating and streamlining end-to-end processes, such as requisition-to-fulfilment and payment-to-receipt.


JD Edwards

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne is a fully integrated ERP suite for managing customer relationships, capital-intensive assets, finances, human resources, and orders. Organizations that use JD Edwards EnterpriseOne often work in asset-intensive industries, such as manufacturing, real estate, construction, and agriculture, so the applications are geared toward the specific needs of those industries and will typically have deep customizations and integrations with other applications to suit an organization’s unique needs.

JD Edwards One-Click Provisioning—only available on OCI—allows customers to deploy JD Edwards within hours while maintaining the integrity of existing customized apps. Running JD Edwards on OCI results in an implementation that not only reduces cost, but also guarantees improved performance and flexibility to elastically scale with demand, for example, during the holidays or month-end close.



Organizations depend on Oracle’s PeopleSoft to manage human resources, finances, supply chain, inventory, and higher education campus experiences. OCI offers unique solutions to help streamline migration and ongoing lifecycle management, such as PeopleSoft Cloud Manager—available only for workloads running on OCI.

Running PeopleSoft on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure provides access to better elasticity during peak seasons, such as registration periods, and 37% lower total cost of ownership than on-premises. Cost-out savings can then be reinvested in new capabilities and user experiences. For example, Oracle Digital Assistant is an AI-powered service that creates conversational experiences for business applications through text, chat, and voice interfaces. Prebuilt PeopleSoft bot templates are available for rapid adoption and include absence-related queries and tasks, eprocurement, and more.



Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management (EPM), a fully integrated performance management software suite that connects strategic, financial, and operational management processes, can be moved to OCI for improved efficiency, cost savings, and performance gains compared to on-premises deployments or other clouds.

When migrating from on-premises, customers can take advantage of guidance from cloud engineers on planning, architecting, prototyping, and managing cloud migrations through Oracle Cloud Lift Services. Any currently supported Hyperion version can effectively run on Oracle Cloud.



Siebel CRM is a customer relationship management solution for organizations of every size and across every region and industry. Siebel CRM can be moved to OCI for improved efficiency, cost savings, and performance gains compared to on-premises deployments or other clouds.

Only available on OCI, Siebel Cloud Manager is an automation tool specially designed for customers to simplify the “lift and shift” of their existing Siebel enterprises from the current source system infrastructure into OCI—with all their customizations intact. Deploying Siebel on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure provides access to high performance compute, Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC), and Exadata, ensuring the highest levels of performance and greatest availability for CRM applications. Siebel CRM customers can migrate Siebel 18.x/19.x/20x and later to OCI, eliminating cumbersome on-premises maintenance and procurement of new hardware.



Oracle FLEXCUBE provides comprehensive functional capabilities across multiple lines of business and banking segments, including retail, corporate, transactions, business/SME, microfinance, Islamic banking, and specialized financial institutions. With OCI, Oracle FLEXCUBE customers not only benefit from rapid deployment, but exclusive Oracle Cloud solutions, such as Exadata, Database RAC, and Autonomous Database—all designed for unmatched performance, reliability, and autonomous operations. Oracle Cloud’s global footprint and validated reference architectures help ensure data sovereignty, disaster recovery, and enhanced availability. Banks will realize an immediate positive impact on their EBITDA by transitioning to a lower-cost, consumption-based operating model.


Retail Merchandising System

Businesses that currently use on-premises Oracle Retail solutions may find that while operating data center infrastructure is becoming less strategic, their customizations and need to control the end-to-end system for their supply chain management systems preclude them from moving their applications to SaaS.

Oracle Retail Merchandising System on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure provides several architecture configurations to match your current on-premises design while meeting or exceeding on-premises performance levels and reducing total cost of ownership. OCI offers a comprehensive portfolio of cloud services to help retailers innovate and accelerate their business that can meet any retail workload, from cloud native applications to high volume enterprise workloads.


Outage Management System

Oracle Utilities Outage Management System (OMS) is used by many of the world’s leading utilities for outage management and restoration in normal and extreme conditions. Moving OMS from on-premises to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure results in a scalable, highly available and performant implementation while maintaining the security and governance utilities sector workloads require. Minimal changes are required to move Oracle Applications, such as OMS, reducing the cost and length of migration to the cloud. Only OCI offers access to proven technologies, such as Oracle RAC, that address specific disaster recovery challenges and support uninterrupted service delivery during local power outages.
