Business Enterprises today need to become more agile, meet new and increasing workload and security requirements, while reducing overall IT cost and risk. To meet these requirements many companies are turning to cloud computing. To remain competitive, companies need to formulate a strategy that can easily move them from traditional on-premises IT to private or public clouds.
Oracle understands the need for IT organizations to move to cloud computing but it also recognizes that moving to the cloud is a multi-step journey that starts with standardization and consolidation of IT infrastructure and ends by moving applications and data to the cloud. Therefore, Oracle provides solutions for all steps of the journey using the same technology for each step greatly simplifying moving to the cloud. The goal is to make sure that any application deployment on Oracle hardware and software is not a dead end but a step in moving to the cloud.
