Oracle Cloud Applications
Traditionally organizations have used on-premise Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems. Organizations are increasingly moving away from this model, given the significant capital and operations expenses and exposure to cyber threats.
Here is where a Cloud-hosted ERP comes into play, with Oracle as the market leader for enterprise grade solutions offering advanced and complete capabilities across the gamut of enterprise business functions.
What is Oracle Cloud ERP?
Oracle Cloud ERP – It is an end-to-end Software as a Service (SaaS) suite to manage enterprise functions such as Financial Management, Supply Chain Management, Human Capital Management, and Customer Experience.
The applications are hosted on the Oracle technology stack in Oracle’s Cloud centers. It supports hybrid deployment and is available for both public and private cloud implementation.
