Rapidly develop & deploy a digital solution on the Oracle Cloud 

Businesses and their processes are constantly changing, as is the behaviour of customers & employees. Now, more than ever, organisations are needing to quickly adapt to survive and grow. 

The challenge for each and every company is unique, so the business solution that one adopts may not necessarily be the right fit for another. 

Often, the best way to develop a new solution that can support your specific business needs is by quickly bringing an idea to life and testing it. This can provide rapid time to value with minimum risk. 


Developing your idea 

Delivering a new solution can be an exciting and rewarding experience, however it is important to mitigate risk by performing a gradual and incremental release cycle. There are a number of agile innovation methods that can help you explore new ideas by introducing an iterative approach to development, accelerating learning and stakeholder alignment within your organisation: 

  • Proof of Concept (PoC) 
    This involves experimenting with an initial idea to evaluate how well it may perform in the 'real' world. Usually it proves the feasibility of a small piece of functionality. 
  • Prototype 
    This generally involves building your idea into a UX mock-up design (clickable prototype), to assess how it reacts visually and learn what does and doesn't work. 
  • Pilot 
    This is the trial of a mostly completed and functional solution to a selection of your end users, whether they are employees, customers or suppliers. This is a live solution that enables further evaluation and minor tweaks to be made before releasing. 
  • Minimum Viable Product (MVP) 
    This is essentially the first iteration of your solution sent out live to all users, while only releasing the core functionality behind your product. 


What is Fast Innovation Track?

We at Oracle Consulting understand that you may want to release a solution using an agile innovation approach. This is why we have introduced a service where we work with you on your idea and build a pilot or MVP using Oracle Cloud technology in around four weeks.
