Oracle Fusion Middleware team would like to pay its tribute to the victims of
Typhoon Haiyan by showcasing one of our customers in the Philippines, Globe
Telecom. If you'd like to help, please visit the Red Cross website.
Globe Telecom (Globe) is a leading full service telecommunications company in the Philippines, serving the needs of consumers and businesses across an entire suite of products and services including mobile, fixed, broadband, data connections, internet and managed services. Globe has more than 32 million subscribers in the country.
For many years Globe had been facing a range of business and IT challenges such as lack of flexibility to adapt to the changing business requirements and keep pace with rapid business growth, and inability to scale up systems performance to address large and unexpected spikes in workload demand.
In May 2012, Globe decided to move away from the existing IBM-based middleware infrastructure and choose Oracle Fusion Middleware (specifically Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle Service Bus) and Oracle Exalogic solutions to modernize its IT infrastructure in order to speed time to market, improve system resilience and increase business agility at lower total cost of ownership (TCO).
The new system is now live and provides the backbone infrastructure and underlying connectivity required for the carrier’s Business Support Systems (BSS) and Operations Support Systems (OSS).You can find more details about Globe’s implementation of Oracle Fusion Middleware and Oracle Exalogic in the Oracle Exalogic Customer Reference Booklet available here.
