Smarter Decisions

You want your local government decisions to be informed by data-driven insights. But how do you determine what data is valuable and what’s just noise? Oracle gives you comprehensive business intelligence with embedded machine learning and AI, so you can trust your data to support smarter predictions and better citizen outcomes.

Optimise Data Investments

Imagine putting all of the data accumulating across your local authority to work. Thanks to emerging technologies, such as AI, machine learning, and cloud, you can. Only Oracle embeds data across all areas of the organisation and IT stack. Oracle applications all share the same data model so data flows freely across all your processes for complete, shared, and informed insights.

Manage Big Data Analytics

Your organisation deals in data of vast volumes, variety, and velocity. And with Oracle, you can advance your analytical capabilities. Using automated lifecycle management and one-click security, Big Data Cloud is designed to optimally and securely run a wide variety of big data workloads and technologies while simplifying operations.

Ensure Cloud Sovereignty

The new Oracle Dual-Region government cloud is the first and only true sovereign cloud dedicated to UK local government. Designed in collaboration with multiple UK government and defence ministries, the UK Dual-Region goes beyond data protection, delivering the trusted cloud infrastructure you need to accelerate digital change and innovate at the pace of industry.

Ensuring Cloud Sovereignty; Beyond Protecting Data

The new Oracle Dual-Region government cloud is aligned to the cloud security principles outlined by the National Cyber Security Centre. The two UK-based data regions are built on a highly resilient network, offering robust disaster recovery capabilities and infrastructure that provides full support for enterprise-grade OFFICIAL-SENSITIVE workloads.

A centralised, security-cleared, UK-based operations team, aligned to the government Secure Remote Support model, ensures expert, rapid issue escalation and resolution, without compromising the integrity of the sovereign model.

High Resilience, Disaster Recovery, and Security

The two paired regions are connected via a highly resilient, private high-speed backbone. The operations and network connections are isolated from other commercial worldwide Oracle Cloud regions.

Based on Oracle Maximum Availability Architecture, the Dual-Region government cloud offers disaster recovery and high resilience outside of a single blast zone without any security and compliance degradation.

Delivering Great Value, Faster

UK local government can take advantage of the sovereignty and security without incurring additional premiums for infrastructure services. Oracle offers global pricing for all data centres worldwide, whereby all commercial and government cloud infrastructure pricing remains common, low, and predictable.

The new Oracle Dual-Region government cloud is available from various sources to streamline procurement, including system integrators and reseller partners, the G-Cloud CCS Framework, and The Memorandum of Understanding.

Our Customers


Katy Harding, Associate Director, Finance and Commercial, Ofqual

“Ofqual is a £20 million public sector organisation – we never thought we could afford an application like Oracle Cloud. We were wrong. It has turned out to be one of the best decisions we ever made.”

“Life in the cloud is lovely. The journey doesn’t stop – we are on a continual path to improvement.”

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.”

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.”
