By migrating to a high-performing, secure, reliable, and scalable Oracle Platform as a Service, we have reduced capital expenditure by US$25,000 and storage costs by US$6,000. We can create reports 11x faster and deliver training to global users 5x faster by launching training environment in just two days.
Established in 1995, Mankind Pharma is one of India’s top five pharmaceutical companies. It offers a wide range of prescribed medicines including antibiotics, antifungals, cardiovascular, dermal, and erectile dysfunction, through a network of 75 carrying and forwarding agents and more than 7,500 stockists. It operates three manufacturing plants and four depots to receive finished products from its own plants and third-party vendors. Mankind Pharma also expanded its exports market to 15 countries across Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. To become a customer-centric global leader in the pharmaceutical industry, Mankind Pharma adopted advanced technologies and strived to provide more accessible and affordable healthcare products.
We selected Oracle Database Cloud Service over other vendors, such as Amazon and IBM, because nothing is better than Oracle managing its own databases. We could also easily migrate the existing database license to Oracle Database In-Memory 12c and minimize capital expenditure.
With assistance from the Oracle India team, Mankind Pharma completed the upgrade to Oracle Database In-Memory 12c in just 1 week and took another 15 days to fine tune the performance. It also successfully migrated and restored databases in only three days with Oracle Database Cloud Service and Oracle Database Backup Cloud Service.
“I would recommend Oracle Database In-Memory 12c to companies that are looking for drastic improvement in database performance and reduction in database size. They can simply use the existing database license and migrate to the new platform without changes to applications and investment in new hardware,” Gokhale said.
