Business Reasons to Deploy EBS on Oracle Cloud

There are a number of reasons why deploying your new or existing Oracle E-Business Suite system on Oracle Cloud can bring significant and measurable business benefit.

They include an improved capability to:

  • Discover new EBS features and products
  • Upgrade to the latest EBS release
  • Support business process change
  • Carry out routine maintenance
  • Support additional users or departments
  • Roll out to new regions
  • Retire outdated infrastructure

All these scenarios are drivers for new projects, so will typically require new development, testing and training instances as a minimum. And even if production capacity is still adequate initially, it will probably need scaling up as well at some point.

So a cloud subscription plan with a surge capacity can be a highly cost-effective choice, enabling resources to be both tailored to your existing workload and also accommodate your growth requirements. Fundamentally, cloud deployment enables you to lower costs and accelerate development, testing, and training. The business does not need to maintain its own hardware and infrastructure, and has the latest products and features available instantly.

As Oracle CEO Mark Hurd says in a interview with Silicon Angle’s John Furrier, although 2025 (when all dev-test will be in the cloud) seems a long way off, the shift is under way. “You’re going to see a lot of dev-test move quickly”, he adds.

For many organizations, shifting their development, test and training environments to the cloud is a sensible starting point in embracing the benefits of cloud computing. The logical next step after that is to shift the rest of the Oracle E-Business workload – most significantly, production systems – to the cloud.
