How managed cloud services can facilitate your digital transformation on Oracle solutions

This interactive whitepaper explains why 76% of CIOs told analyst firm Frost & Sullivan that cloud managed services are essential to their IT strategy. And the provider's skills must go far beyond simply managing the infrastructure.

How managed cloud services can help different industries

Improve supply chain efficiencies

The focus is on leveraging technology for innovation to build routes to market, improve customer engagement, and supply chain efficiencies.

Reduce time to market and simplify IT

Customer demands for variety and customization in products call for shorter supply chain lifecycles and flexible manufacturing operations. Manufacturers may need to refit production lines to support multiple products.

Drive down cost and free upstaff time

66% of financial services firms have adopted managed cloud services as a way to ensure optimal function of business applications within a secure environment.

Transform your customer experience

According to investment firm UBS, nearly 8,000 US retail store closures were announced in 2017—eclipsing the previous record of 6,163 closures during the 2008 recession.1 According to the National Retail Federation, while total retail sales are expected to grow around 4% in 2018, that number reflects growth of 10-12% in online sales, offset by continued declines in store-based sales.

Anticipate Change and adapt quickly

The conservative insurance industry is starting to embrace the digital era. After years of lagging behind other industries—including fellow regulated industries, such as financial services and healthcare—insurance firms are adopting cloud, analytics, and next-generation technologies as a means to win customers and grow revenue.
