Comprehensive Management for Hybrid Cloud

Hybrid cloud uptake is on the rise, and the challenges of managing business-driven IT environments, in which public and private clouds can thrive, are becoming increasingly important and critical. How can you manage a hybrid cloud as one cohesive entity when the journey to cloud is so complex? How do you enable lines of business to consume IT services on-demand when you have competing stakeholder priorities? How do you manage multiple clouds when there’s a lack of insight and visibility?

Read the new Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Rel.5 data sheet describing new features for hybrid cloud management.

Oracle Private Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS): Towards the Hybrid Cloud - Launch Webcast for Oracle EMEA Partners

Webcast now available on-demand here!

Slides available here!

Thursday, July 9, 2015 at 9:00 UKT / 10:00 CET

Dear Oracle Valued Partner,

The need for business agility, cost reductions and risk control is driving the adoption of the Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) model by enterprises all over the world. Databases are a key component of any business application and therefore the agility in provisioning and managing Database services has a direct impact on the business.

Companies are adopting the Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) model both by rearchitecting their internal IT database infrastructure (Private DBaaS) or by moving some database workloads to Public Clouds. Eventually most enterprises will have a mix of Private DBaaS and Public DBaaS services, in what will constitute a Hybrid Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) platform.

We are launching the FY16 “Private Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS): towards the Hybrid Cloud” Sales Play for Oracle EMEA Partners and we want to invite you to a webcast on Thursday, July 9th, 2015 at 9am UK / 10:00 CET / 11:00 EET where we will discuss:
