service is becoming the service businesses choose the most and Oracle isn’t
different. Oracle Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) is growing its base day by day with customers moving from traditional ERP to the cloud.
With Oracle’s growing cloud footprint, there is also a need for automated 3rd party integrations with Oracle SaaS to help minimize user dependencies and eliminate any potential process gaps. At Apps Associates, we try to identify these gaps, educate the user community, and help resolve these gaps with potential Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solutions.

In many companies, the enterprise data warehouse (EDW) plays a central role in information analysis and decision making. For companies that have them, EDW’s often represent a significant investment in terms of time, cost and resources. They are often used by multiple business units and departments either natively or as a source of data for local data marts. Re-platforming or replacing them can be a significant effort with a large impact on the organization as a whole. Most data warehouses that have been developed prior to the last several years were developed as on-premise or hosted solutions. So, it is natural for there to be some hesitancy when considering a move to the cloud. That said, over the past couple of years, cloud data warehouses now come with some compelling benefits that make it worthwhile to consider the option. First, let’s review some of the benefits of cloud data warehouses, then we will discuss some considerations for deciding whether moving the EDW to the cloud is the right decision for your organization.

For additional insight, listen to customer experience and resulting operational gains at Integer Holdings Corp (NYSE: ITGR) cited during excerpts of a recent session, “Migrating Oracle Applications to AWS Cloud”.

What organizations would put servers in a Private Cloud? There
are many companies who have chosen or are considering putting their environments in the Private Cloud. The move to giants like Amazon Web Services (AWS) is inevitable for all companies as the value of utility cloud computing is proven. While the breadth of services that the Public Cloud platforms currently offer far outweigh what can be offered in a Private Cloud, there are benefits to the Private Cloud that you should consider. Many companies have legacy applications on-premises and they aren’t ready to lose physical touch with them. (We affectionately call these people server huggers.) On the other hand,
the company may have risk, compliance, and governance requirements that drive toward the Private Cloud. These folks want (or need) their applications to run in a more controlled and segregated environment. This is where the Private Cloud comes into play.
