Cloud Expo Europe: Oracle UK Cloud Head Outlines Strategy For Digital Transformation

Oracle is championing flexibility as a core tenement of its cloud strategy as enterprises pursue digital transformation doctrines.

John Abel head of technology and cloud at Oracle UK and Ireland, explained to Silicon that the database giant is not only offering both on-premise and cloud services, but enabling its customers to have the flexibility on deciding where they are deployed.

For example, the company’s Cloud Machine enables enterprises to take oracles public cloud platform-as-a-service offerings and choose to deploy them in a private data centre of their choice.

This gives companies looking to adopt more cloud services, the scalable resources and cost flexibility of public cloud mixed with the enterprise-grade service levels and capacities expected from private cloud deployments.
