Tokyo, JapanOctober 6, 2022

Oracle Corporation Japan announces today that Japan's Digital Agency has selected Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) as its cloud service for a government cloud used by central and local government agencies and other government organizations.

Aiming to establish a government cloud in FY2022, the Digital Agency issued a solicitation for cloud services for evaluating the integration of My Number Card electronic certificates on smartphones and for the Digital Agency to conduct diverse research studies on building a digital connection platform and digital analytics platform. Oracle Japan has been selected as one of the service providers for this cloud service. The solicitation requirements included Information System Security Management and Assessment Program (ISMAP) registration and the ability to offer technology related to managed services. OCI has met these requirements and has been recognized for Oracle's long-standing efforts and track record in building safe and secure social infrastructures.

Oracle provides a broad and consistent set of cloud services across 65 cloud regions (including Tokyo and Osaka) in 25 countries on five continents to serve its growing global customer base. OCI is the next-generation cloud designed to help public and private organizations in Japan improve IT and operational efficiency, get faster insights from their data, and build and deploy cloud-native applications while ensuring compliance and reducing cost of risk.

OCI is designed to provide full protection of customers' workloads with a security-first approach. The next-generation cloud infrastructure delivers safety, availability, and scalability to meet the demanding requirements of mission-critical systems. It was registered on ISMAP in June 2021. OCI has undergone a rigorous test by an independent certification organization. In addition, it supports audits by external institutions and certifications by global governments, including global compliance such as ISO certifications, SOC audit, and PCI DSS, as well as compliance in Japan such as FISC Security Guidelines, guidelines by three Ministries on healthcare-related information, and the government common standards. Its strong security has been broadly recognized.

Underscoring its ongoing focus on sustainability, Oracle has committed to powering all worldwide Oracle Cloud regions with 100 percent renewable energy by 2025. Several Oracle Cloud regions, including regions in North America, South America, and Europe, are already powered by 100 percent renewable energy.

Toshimitsu Misawa, member of the board, corporate executive officer and president of Oracle Corporation Japan, said: "One of the focus areas for Oracle Japan in FY23 is to enable social public infrastructures that support safe, secure, and fulfilling lives. Adoption of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for government cloud services strengthens Oracle's commitment to supporting customers' digital transformation by offering the highest level of security, availability, and performance with OCI. Oracle will powerfully support the national and local governments in Japan to offer innovative government services seamlessly.”
