Partner Webcast: Cloud Opportunities for Partners with Enterprise Manager 12c - 7 March 2013

Oracle Cloud Solutions unlock new revenue, margin and competitive differentiation opportunities for Partners
Oracle offers a comprehensive portfolio of best-in-class, integrated applications, platform, and infrastructure products and solutions.

Cloud computing brings significant advantages to customers, such as lower operational IT costs, business agility, time-to-market, performance & availability. However, it imposes new challenges for IT to deliver and demonstrate these gains to the business. The transformation from traditional IT architectures to enterprise clouds requires complete lifecycle management of the cloud; from capacity planning and self-service provisioning to policy-based resource management and metering & chargeback.

An enterprise cloud must also be managed from a business perspective:
  • Balancing service levels and functionality with cost and availability is required.
  • Managing the user experience, business transactions and services are imperative to ensure cloud services are meeting business expectations.
  • Streamlining IT operations to reduce cost and complexity is a prerequisite to achieve the scalability needed in a cloud infrastructure.

Oracle Private Cloud portfolio enables organizations to have complete control and visibility over security, regulatory compliance, service levels and functionality. This enables tremendous business opportunities for Oracle partners.

Oracle Partners can utilize Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c to build, deploy, manage, integrate, and secure customer-facing cloud environments. Moreover, Partners can take full Control over customer cloud environments by holistically managing complex componentry in the cloud from a single, integrated console.
