Managed Cloud Integration Service – Essential for the Hybrid Cloud Model

Today, enterprises seek to do more than just save money with cloud technology —they also crave agility. Companies are looking beyond the goal of reducing capital expenses and operational expenses, and now seek to implement technologies that enable usage metrics, self-service offerings and automated provisioning without an accompanying surge in operational costs. Hybrid cloud deployments, leveraging a mix of both public and private cloud platforms offer this promise. But as enterprises try to create an integrated hybrid cloud environment, they face significant technical challenges.

Integration problems are causing companies to abandon cloud applications and are hurting their ability to innovate. Many times project deadlines are missed due to cloud integration problems.

Oracle Managed Cloud Integration Service (MCIS) eliminates many of the biggest barriers for enterprises that intend to adopt Oracle business applications in the public cloud. By offering pre-built integration templates and complete-lifecycle management for their cloud integration, Oracle MCIS can eliminate hours of non-strategic work for in-house IT organizations while dramatically increasing the reliability of their cloud integrations. Benefits include:

  • Pre-built integrations for rapid deployment with predictable cost and time frames
  • On-going management - patching, monitoring, break-fix, enhancements
  • Business transaction monitoring capability across clouds improve availability for integrations
  • Faster issue resolution and higher availability for cloud integrations
  • Location and platform flexibility - @ Oracle, @ customer, dedicated SOA, SOA PaaS, ICS PaaS

The top 5 things you should be asking your potential cloud provider about security

Cloud is changing the way we all do business- and we all know it is here to stay.  But, what about the "issues" that  linger around cloud? Security is the first one that comes to mind. Security is considered the number one inhibitor for organizations who are considering moving their business critical applications to a cloud based environment.

So, cloud is here to stay and security is a concern.. How do we get beyond the fear?

The first step is:
 When evaluating a cloud solution, one of the first things to consider is the security “readiness” and qualifications of the potential cloud provider.

Some questions to ask are:
-What are your organization’s needs when it comes to security?  Maybe you are in a highly regulated industry or in a country where you need to ensure your company adheres to specific regulations. 

-What are your specific business and regulatory requirements for the data that you are looking to move to the cloud?

- Lastly, make a checklist of questions to ask your provider.

To get ideas on the questions to ask check out this new Quinstreet executive brief that highlights “The top 5 things you should ask your potential cloud provider when it comes to security”.
