Our Customers


Archie Gleave, Program Director, Shared Services Connected Limited

“I was really impressed with the Oracle partnership. Being able to interact directly with the Oracle team means we have tech professionals to support us around the clock with any issues. It’s a very positive engagement.”


Hamant Bharadia, Assistant Director of Finance, Lambeth Council

“We moved to Oracle Cloud two years ago to standardise and simplify processes across the Council. We are now creating a digital network within which emerging local businesses can thrive.”

“We are using data analytics to better understand how our services are delivered, with a focus on continual improvement.”

“One of the reasons for moving to Oracle Cloud was to take out many of the customisations from our on-premise environment. Now, when new hires join the Council, everything is standardised. There are fewer processes to learn so managers and staff can devote more time to supporting residents’ needs.”


Imre Berger, Professor and Director, University of Bristol

“Our ambition is to create a platform to react quickly to disease, which involves the creation of terabytes of imaging data. Using Oracle Cloud, we can distribute the data across multiple processors and get results in a fraction of the time of a traditional on-premise system.”

Royal Holloway

Saswata Hier-Majumder, Reader in Geophysics, Royal Holloway, University of London

“Using the Oracle Cloud, we can simulate carbon capture sequestration scenarios, address complex environmental problems, and drive meaningful change in the world.”

Royal Holloway, University of London

Commitment to Social Values

Government purchasing has huge potential to unlock benefits beyond the work being procured, and Oracle welcomes the Government’s work to strengthen social value in its procurement processes. The Social Value Model offers an outcomes-based approach and a framework for measuring social value, both of which we believe are critical to delivering social value.

Oracle pursues the highest standards of corporate responsibility and is committed to aligning closely with the five themes covered in the evaluation model: COVID-19 Recovery, Tackling Economic Inequality, Fighting Climate Change, Equal Opportunity, and Wellbeing. Learn more

De-risking financial planning across government

De-risking financial planning across government

In this paper we examine how public sector budget and management processes can refocus on both inputs (how a service is provided) and results (the public value achieved). And how performance budgeting can improve public sector performance on a tight budget.

Public Sector Blogs and Thought Leadership

Connecting Business Planning for Police Forces in the UK

Police Forces across the UK battle daily to reduce crime rates and the fear of crime, whilst facing relentless pressure to continually adapt to the changing nature of criminality and rising citizen expectations.As public services are put under enormous strain by the challenge of COVID-19 and the need to mark hard budget prioritisation decisions, means the funding outlook for policing looks rather tough.

Recovery and renewal - making progress towards a data driven NHS

The NHS faces a very different task to the one imagined when the five-year funding deal was agreed back in 2018. Responding to the Covid-19 pandemic, including tackling a rising treatment backlog, is likely to require substantial additional investment.

Modernising healthcare services – the role of financial planning

In 1942 William Beveridge, the architect of the post-war welfare state, suggested that spending on healthcare would decrease when free medical treatment was introduced for all at the point of use.

Oracle helps Merseyside Police provide excellent policing services

Merseyside Police, the regional police force in Merseyside, North West England and responsible for approximately 1.5 million of the UK population, are making pioneering investments in Cloud technology.

Behind the scenes efficiencies driving frontline care

NEP's move to the latest technology has enabled their clients with the benefits of a ‘True Cloud offering’ a “digital first solution” across its client base. This has meant more than just expanding the remit of current technology solutions, it supports frontline staff and back-office services with the best available technology to do their job efficiently and effectively. Not just for today, but ensuring they have the best for years to come.

Universities are looking towards financial sustainability – light at the end of the tunnel?

Most universities are not like typical commercial organisations. But they are becoming more business-like. They need to be managed on a financially sustainable basis. Every successful university needs a strategy, which identifies what it exists for and how it can add value through the work it does.

What do higher education leaders need to know about the cloud?

In 2019 the Department for Education published an ‘EdTech Strategy’. The strategy flagged that, all too often, technology enabled business change across the education sector failed to deliver value for money or the benefits sought.

Oracle helps UK lift economy, citizen experience with launch of two more cloud regions

We have announced that Oracle is expanding its cloud computing presence in the UK, with a new dedicated dual-region government cloud region and a second commercial cloud region in Newport, Wales.

The cloud is our greatest weapon when faced with disruption

As new challenges arrive every day, some of the most important questions for business leaders are these: What will it take to compete? And what decisions do you need to take today, to fare better tomorrow?

Securing the future of higher education

Oracle is working with higher education institutions across the UK, helping them to reveal vital financial and operational data, contributing to better decision making and helping them to prepare for new accountability requirements in areas like risk assessment, health and safety and human resource development.

Higher education plans for an uncertain future

There is no doubt that higher education leaders must confront complex and far-reaching questions. What will be the duration and scale of the disruption caused by social distancing? Will blended learning become the new normal? To what extent will student numbers fluctuate? Will government invest in universities and research at the same level? And what will be the consequences for university finances?

The future is already here – how do we understand and plan for it?

Every aspect of government’s work - decision taking and policy making, spending and regulation, action and implementation - involves some degree of risk. Governments then face a relentless series of emergencies, including periodic outbreaks of infectious disease, the aftermath of terrorist attacks and global financial and economic crises. The affects are acutely felt at a local level, where councils and their partners are responsible for delivering services to the most vulnerable.

Much more than buying a paper clip – rethinking the government supply chain

Every day public servants buy the goods and services they need to deliver front line services. The range of these services is vast – from laptops to locum doctors, medicines to laundry services. They seek to gain the best value possible from suppliers, realising economic benefits that might be reinvested in frontline services. The availability and quality of the goods and services make a vital contribution to meeting the diverse and changing needs of citizens.

Havering and Newham, bringing the clouds together

Serving over 600,000 residents between them, Havering and Newham councils represent diverse and varied communities. To ensure that the both councils were building services that were efficient, transparent and provided the best services possible for our communities, they decided to embark upon a joint project to move our core business functions to the cloud.

Oracle Cloud Migration Factory

For the First and Only Dedicated, Compliant, and Truly Sovereign Cloud in the UK. On the 20th October we announced the launch of Oracle’s new dual-region government cloud, which provides public sector organisations with unmatched security, local compliance, performance, adaptability and cost-savings. The new region forms part of Oracle’s commitment to providing the government with enterprise grade cloud services, in line with the global roll out of Oracle Gen2 Cloud.

Improving the UK government’s capability to handle risk and uncertainty in a volatile world

Governments have always played a critical role in the protection of their citizens from risks. Risks vary, from national security through to financial resilience. The difference now is that the world is more networked and interdependent. An integrated global economy has brought huge opportunities, but it also means that citizens are more vulnerable, to an economic crisis on the other side of the world or diseases carried by air travellers.

New York State Builds Rapid Contact Center Solution in Four Days

When the coronavirus hit New York hard in March 2020, the state realized citizen services would quickly be swamped and critical constituent needs would not be met. State leaders needed a way to quickly add new call center agents, and also needed to divert a significant percentage of calls to self-service.

Powering Government Insights through Data

Most public sector organizations want to focus on their core mission rather than perform routine IT maintenance activities. They want to be proactive, not reactive. They want to make data-driven decisions, not anecdotal ones.

To get there, public sector agencies need to stop being data rich and information poor. How? They can instead become information rich by analyzing and understanding what the enormous amount of data collected from the systems built over the past few decades is actually telling them.

Leading by Example. Good corporate citizenship means being intentional and thoughtful about the value we generate as a company—not only for our shareholders, but also for our people, our planet, and future generations. It means applying the same level of commitment, rigor, and sincerity to changing lives as we do to building cutting-edge technology for our customers.
