Oracle in the cloud holds possibilities for users

Sponsored by SearchOracle

Companies that want to keep up with the times have been making the push to the cloud for years. But, sometimes, they begin offering products without having figured out how to replicate in the cloud what they do on premises; other times, users are reluctant to make the move from one platform to another. The story of Oracle in the cloud has some of the false starts that other companies have faced, but it also contains stories of success and possibility.

This handbook shares some of those accounts of users' trials and successes. To start, reporter Jessica Sirkin talks to an application manager for the Evangelical Christian Credit Union (ECCU) about the financial institutions' move from an on-premises Oracle financial application to one in the cloud. Find out what the company gained and lost by adopting Oracle in the cloud. Database administrator and contributor Brian Peasland then looks at the new features afforded to organizations that upgrade to the Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 13c. The cloud may lack some features compared to on-premises options, but Oracle and other companies are improving the services that are available up in the sky. To close, Robert Sheldon gets to the bottom of what Oracle is offering with its Analytics Cloud platform.
