The right managed service provider brings experience, a strategic view, and proven success

In June 2019, OracleandMicrosoft announced an Interoperability Partnership to ensure support for running Oracle workloads on both Oracle and Azure clouds.

With 20 years of professional and managed services experience migrating, upgrading, and managing highly customised Oracle workloads across hybrid and multi-cloud architectures, Data Intensity was already qualified to meet the task. As both an Oracle Platinum Partner and Microsoft Gold Partner, to date Data Intensity has successfully executed 300+ workload migrations.

The Data Intensity Safe-SwitchSM methodology is a life-cycle approach to migrating and managing Oracle application anddatabase platforms on to cloud platforms. Safe-Switch was created to help customers accelerate their consumption of heterogeneous cloud adoption, with freedom of choice and seamless integration. Safe-Switch offers organisations a cloud strategy that streamlines the migration process and optimises investments whilst maximising agility, scalability, and efficiency.

Data Intensity Safe-Switch empowers organisations with a scalable, increasingly agile, and secure business systems to support their IT business needs.

Recipe for Success

Using the process-driven Safe-Switch methodology, we have most recently worked with two key customers in the UK to transform their Oracle estate.

The first of these, a very large exhibitions and seminars organisation, has completely transformed its Oracle E-Business Suite environment from an ageing and costly project management and ERP tool, to a cost-efficient, agile, and mission-critical business-operations application. With a global ULA, this customer also took the opportunity, working with Data Intensity, to make sure it was using Oracle programs in a compliant and cost-efficient fashion.

When Data Intensity identified that the ULA, held by global owners, did not contain all of the appropriate parent programs required by the sister company, the company sprang into action to make sure that the correct licenses and modules were procured. Both performance and compliance benefits were achieved by working with the customer’s trusted partner, Data Intensity.

Additionally, during a significant transition program, Data Intensity worked tirelessly to introduce a large oil and gas supplier into the Data Intensity Managed Services Program (MSP) in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. This transition produced significant infrastructure and management overheads for the company and has provided it with the agility and flexibility to grow and shrink capacity as necessary, all under the watchful eye of an approved and certified Oracle Cloud Partner, Data Intensity.
