Oracle accelerates data centre transformation with new MSP programme

21 Sep 16

Oracle’s new cloud managed service provider programme looks to pair its partner services with the company’s leading cloud platform, driving data centre transformation for its customers.

According to Oracle, companies are increasingly looking to the cloud to stay competitive and drive the transformation, however, most lack the skillsets and resources that are needed.

To help with this shortage, the company says it has developed a solution that supports customers right from the partner and platform.

The Oracle Cloud Managed Service Provider (MSP) Programme is available to partners that the company believes have the skills and infrastructure to build, deploy, run and manage both Oracle and non-Oracle workloads.

Partners will be able to buy Oracle cloud platform based on the needs of the customer, package their MSP services, and sell the integrated solution through a streamlined business model.

Oracle asserts that its partners will reap the benefits of building their services on a world-class cloud infrastructure, while customers get the complete solution they need to optimise their Cloud initiatives.

For Sanjay Sinha, vice president of Platform Products at Oracle, cloud represents a huge opportunity for the company’s partner community.

“The new MSP programme is a win-win for our customers and partners, as it enables us to work in tandem to provide the solutions and services needed to accelerate time to value and success in the Cloud,” he says.

At this early stage, there are already partners participating in the programme. These include: Accenture, Atos, Capgemini, Deloitte Consulting, Dimension Data, Fujitsu, Hitachi Consulting, Infosys, PwC, Tata Consultancy Services and Wipro.

Steve White, programme vice president of Channels and Alliances for IDC, says cloud represents the new tech battle ground as companies of all sizes look to modernise their infrastructure.

“The new Cloud MSP programme from Oracle offers partners and customers an avenue to pair leading services with Oracle’s Cloud platform to help orchestrate this evolution to the Cloud in an efficient model.”
