To provide small and midsize businesses (SMBs) access to the Cloud solutions and resources, Cloud major Oracle on Friday opened its first ‘Digital Hub’ in Bengaluru. The facility is first of the five ‘Digital Hubs,’ to be opened in Asia Pacific which will help SMBs leverage Oracle Cloud solutions to streamline operations, boost innovation and gain a platform for growth.
“The Cloud is democratising IT and you just need a web-browser or a mobile phone app to take advantage of it,”We are simplifying the buying process to help the smaller organisations as well as branch offices and line of business departments, digitally transform their business,” said Francois Lancon, senior Vice-President, Oracle Japan and Asia Pacific, in a statement.
The hub will house Oracle’s new digital sales team and focus on helping mid-size organisations transition to the Cloud easily. It will provide a complete suite of Cloud applications, platform and infrastructure services as both stand-alone services and as bundles.
“There are over 51 million SMBs in India, many of whom haven’t worked with Oracle or used cloud before. They now have access to the most modern solutions in the market, available online, direct via the hub and through our expanded end-to-end ecosystem, working with the vast network in India” noted Shailender Kumar, Vice-President and Regional Managing Director, Oracle India.
Following the pilot programme in Bengaluru, Oracle recently expanded its locations in India by opening two new centres in Delhi-NCR and Mumbai. Oracle’s Digital Hubs will provide a complete suite of cloud applications, platform and infrastructure services as both stand-alone services and as bundles.
“The Oracle HCM cloud solution has completely transformed our HR engine to match our fast growth and has given us the freedom to do more with less,” said Vivek Vinayak Purekar, Vice President and Global HR Head, Simeio Solutions.
