Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) was built for enterprise applications, and as the largest, independent solution provider for ERP, Syntax helps customers of all sizes in all industries leverage this powerful platform for their most demanding workloads.
As Chief Architect at Syntax, I work with customers to solve their most difficult enterprise technology and application challenges. The rate of change in both business and technology is unprecedented; developing a robust cloud strategy to keep up with that change, while doing more with less, can be daunting. An even bigger challenge is delivering an achievable, cost-effective execution plan for that strategy that has the buy-in and cooperation of the business. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, along with the breadth of Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions that Oracle provides, is an effective tool in delivering improved capabilities and service levels for IT and ERP teams, while at the same time reducing costs.
Syntax’s approach to cloud strategy remains agnostic, as each customer has unique circumstances that could inform which cloud solution makes the most sense for them. It’s our goal to give our customers the information they need to make decisions that will have a positive impact on their businesses. To that end, our solution architecture, application engineering, and OCI engineering teams are excited to publish a series of blog articles and webinars focused on running the Oracle ERP and the surrounding solution ecosystem on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
A few of the topics to look forward to include:
- Leveraging OCI for Enterprise Application Workloads – A Pragmatic Approach for E-Business Suite and JD Edwards
- Modernize and Migrate E-Business Suite Quickly and Inexpensively on OCI
- Not Ready to Move Production? Getting Started with Hybrid Cloud for E-Business Suite on OCI
- Understanding High Availability and Disaster Recovery for ERP in OCI
- Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and Multi-Cloud Connectivity
- Enterprise Applications on OCI – Navigating the Impact to Software Licensing and Support
- Understand Database Options in OCI – Compute, DBCS, ExaCS, and Autonomous
- Migrating from Perpetual to PaaS – SOA to Oracle Integration Cloud Service
- Migrating from Perpetual to PaaS – OBIEE to Analytics Cloud Service
- Migrating from Perpetual to PaaS – Oracle Access Manager to Identity Cloud Service
Why are these topics so important now?
- Oracle is offering some very significant benefits and tools for customers to migrate to OCI, including the new Oracle Support Rewards There are also new subscription licensing capabilities for WebLogic Suite (which includes Internet Application Server) that have not been available until recently, which give customers new options for hybrid cloud use cases.
- E-Business Suite 12.1.3 is entering Sustaining Support in December 2021, and there are still a lot of customers trying to figure out when and how they will upgrade. Customers need to understand the business benefits cloud solutions like OCI can have in terms of the efficiency, capability, and cost of their ERP platform.
- The new E-Business Suite 12.2.11 release includes some very important architecture changes that will eventually lead to EBS compatibility with Oracle’s Autonomous Database. This is a major reason to think about moving to OCI when it’s time to apply this release.
- We are seeing a significant trend in the market to leverage platform services, both for new capabilities and to retire legacy perpetual license applications. We expect this trend to continue to accelerate as organizations move more of their enterprise business capabilities to subscription SaaS and PaaS offerings.
Our team looks forward to sharing more information with you in the coming months. If there are specific topics you’d like us to present that are not mentioned here, please contact us at [email protected] so we can include them in our plans.
