Conduent Streamlines Transaction Processing with Oracle Database@Azure

Conduent (NASDAQ: CNDT) delivers digital business solutions and services to its clients and the millions of people who count on them across the commercial, government, and transportation sectors.

This helps us deliver solutions and services that improve clients’ operations, increase efficiencies, reduce costs, and enhance the customer experience.”
