“The Cloud changes everything”: such statements are commonplace today, and this is a good summary of the impact of Cloud Applications – any applications, not just Oracle’s. Cloud can deliver a paradigm shift that brings many positive changes. The same is true for application support.
But while Cloud Applications change organisations’ support requirements, they don’t remove the need for such a service. While some support needs, e.g. hosting, are gone Cloud brings new requirements and unique challenges. To address these Claremont introduced our Managed Services for Oracle Cloud Applications.
Background, Requirements and Challenges
Over the past 20 years many organisations modernised their back-office systems. They moved to integrated platforms, e.g. ERP, that enabled the redefinition of business processes. Cloud delivery now offers organisations a new generation of applications that addresses some of the previous generation’s challenges. These include: inflexible licensing models; specialist technical skills for systems hosting and support; limited support for mobile devices; and outdated user interfaces.
