Moving our own business to Oracle’s next generation infrastructure gave us twice the performance of our on-premise environment. We deploy products and resources faster, leverage complete elasticity, and gained a platform that allowed us to transform and power every dimension of our business. Let us share what we learned moving our global enterprise to the cloud.

Like many organizations, Oracle used an array of on-premises product architectures, customer delivery models, and platform components. This slowed innovation, made upgrade and adoption cycles longer, and created unnecessary technological constraints. As part of the Oracle@Oracle transformation, we streamlined our infrastructure, implementing Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) , and increasing the pace we can innovate, deliver solutions, and serve our customers.
Oracle relies on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure’s autonomous management, maintenance, system tuning and security patching. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure delivers a holistic solution that can meet the needs of our global enterprise. We utilize Oracle Cloud Infrastructure’s autonomous management, maintenance, system tuning and security patching. With OCI, we have realized higher security, better performance, and cost savings.
Oracle itself is fully embracing our Gen 2 cloud infrastructure for our own business requirements. We are running critical business functions across the company on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. And we are reaping the benefits of lower cost, greater reliability, and better security.

We developed a unique framework to migrate all of our applications (SaaS, EBS, NetSuite, Industry Applications, and Corporate Applications and others) to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
Establish the vision and align on the strategy with key stakeholders.
Prepare and train the organization for change, design and re-platform for the new environment.
Develop and migrate workloads to OCI and close down legacy data centers.
Perform final cutover, post go-live activities and continuous optimization.
Migrating our applications to OCI is core to strategy, but we also realize all the benefits inherent to OCI, including autonomous database, security, predictive analytics, and developer services.
We have been able to achieve a significant return on investment with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure including the following metrics (to date):
