Siebel CRM Migration to OCI

Oracle’s Siebel CRM deployments can be easily migrated to run on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI)—without significant configuration, integration, or business process changes. Access step-by-step resources outlining best practices as well as expert guidance from Oracle engineers and partners.

Step-by-step migration resources

You can keep your Siebel CRM application as you have it today while taking advantage of the operational and cost benefits of the cloud. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is designed to simplify cloud migration for all applications, including Siebel CRM. Oracle’s second-generation cloud platform improves application performance and availability, for less. Explore our complimentary migration resources below.

Siebel Cloud Manager is an automation tool specially designed for customers to simplify the “lift and shift” of their existing Siebel applications from the current source system infrastructure to OCI with all their customizations intact. Not only that, but the migrated system is automatically deployed with a containers and Kubernetes architecture.

Why use Siebel Cloud Manager?

  • Seamless and secure movement: Using the tool simplifies the transformation of the current configurations and securely moves all existing configurations to OCI with all customizations intact.
  • Continuous deployment: Use continuous deployment for new Siebel CRM environments in OCI and artifacts on the base Siebel CRM image.

If your current Siebel CRM version isn’t compatible with Siebel Cloud Manager (which currently supports Siebel 18.12 and later) you can still migrate your workloads as they are—from on-premises or any cloud platform—by using the Bring Your Own Image (BYOI) feature of OCI. With BYOI, everything from on-premises virtual machines moves to OCI as is, reducing the overall migration effort and time.

Oracle Cloud Lift Services provide guidance from cloud engineers on planning, architecting, prototyping, and managing cloud migrations. Customers can move critical Oracle and non-Oracle workloads in weeks—or even days—instead of months by leveraging these services, which are included with customer tenancies.
