With Oracle, you get integrated, modern cloud applications built on our next-generation infrastructure, and ongoing support to keep you running efficiently. Oracle Cloud Applications deliver continuous updates with the latest in security, artificial intelligence, conversational interfaces, natural language processing, blockchain, and Internet of Things capabilities delivering a strong foundation for the future.
Customers with complex requirements often discover Microsoft needs partners and third-party products for areas like Enterprise Performance Management (EPM), Human Capital Management (HCM), Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), risk management, sourcing, contracts, transportation and more.
What starts as an attractive proposal can be less compelling after considering the cost of customization, change orders and partner support fees. Customers should consider the costs of switching Microsoft partners and the entire system when it can’t scale to meet your requirements.
Unlike Microsoft—which often relies on partners to contribute industry expertise and intellectual property—Oracle maintains a direct relationship with customers to improve our solution and facilitate peer exchange across the entire Oracle customer community.
