Accelerate Innovation In Your Business

All business needs are unique. If you see a cloud provider offering a one size fits all solution for your business- turnaround and run as fast as you can. There is not a one size fits all solution because all industries and businesses are different.

In order to have the best growth strategy in place for your business- you need a complete and personalized cloud that can be tailored for your unique business needs.

With a personalized cloud, there are a number of benefits including the following:

-being able to tailor within your cloud apps (this includes functionality such as workflows, UI, etc)

- you can enrich or extend your cloud apps or create new applications with platform services ( all built on a standards based platform using tools your IT team already knows)

And last but not least,

 – take advantage of continuous innovations and upgrades- so you are always up to date with the latest software release.

Now let’s look at a traditional on-premises software development and its upgrade cycle:

A traditional on-premises software timeline looks something like this. 

  • In year 1, in 2007, the vendor started development on the latest release.
  • In year 3, in 2009, the vendor releases the latest version, which you’ve chosen to implement
  • In year 5, in 2011, the business case for an upgrade is secured and implementation begins
  • In year 7, in 2013. you’re finally live on the upgrade

To give you perspective, in this same time frame, Apple released 8 versions of the iPhone.  So that is how quickly innovation is occurring and perhaps how fast your competitors are innovating these days.

Now with REAL SaaS applications in the Oracle Cloud you get new functional innovations every 3-6 months so you can personalize and keep up to speed with the pace of innovation and change–  and you can select when you accept these innovations into your business. You get a choice.
