UK Economic Development Agency successfully stabilises its infrastructure and reduces costs by migrating to the Oracle Cloud

Migrating to the cloud delivers significant benefits but getting there is not a process that should be underestimated.  It requires careful planning and the support of a number of specialist cloud consultants.  That is why this UK Public Sector organisation trusted Oracle Consulting to manage its successful move to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Gen 2 with minimal disruption to users and zero downtime.


The Challenge

Supporting an application on-premises requires constant effort not only to keep the application software up-to-date, but also to ensure that the Operating Systems are patched and in support.  Hardware is an additional factor in reliability. 


The Solution

Oracle Consulting migrated the organisation’s Oracle eBusiness Suite system and database onto OCI Gen2, delivering infrastructure and application stability with minimal disruption to its end user community. The customer took this opportunity to ask Oracle Consulting to deliver additional integrations into third party tools during the migration, further improving functionality.


The Results

Thanks to this agile delivery, the organisation now has a stable platform with improved performance at critical times like month-end.  The efficiency gains from this, along with the reduced overall support costs, will ensure a rapid Return on Investment (ROI).


Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is breaking ground in organisations of all sizes across multiple industries.
