Oracle Canadian data centre now available to support localized data residency

2 Sep 2015 Redwood Shores - Canadian organisations are increasingly looking to improve efficiency, flexibility, operational agility, and integrity of systems, while wrestling with the need to reduce IT costs and comply with localization and security concerns. To address the increasing demand for data sovereignty, Oracle has opened a fully functional data centre that supports the deployment of Cloud services for customers whose Cloud applications and Cloud-based solutions are deployed in Canada.

To help customers achieve the benefits of Cloud, the Canadian data centre will support Oracle Human Capital Management Cloud (Oracle HCM Cloud), Oracle Enterprise Resource Planning Cloud (Oracle ERP Cloud), and Oracle Customer Experience (CX) Cloud applications. The best-of-breed software as a service applications in Oracle Cloud are integrated with social, mobile, and analytic capabilities to help deliver the experiences customers expect, the talent to succeed, and the performance the marketplace demands.

With Oracle HCM Cloud applications now available through Oracle Cloud, customers can securely deploy a modern human resources (HR) system in the Cloud with a talent-centric and collaborative strategy that aligns HR with their recruitment, skills development, and business objectives, enabling them to find and retain talent and improve operational efficiency.

Oracle ERP Cloud helps customers streamline business processes using tools supporting financials, procurement, project costing, and project portfolio management. With the solution in place, organisations will be able to confidently implement secure enterprise applications designed to increase productivity, lower costs, and improve controls.

Oracle CX Cloud provides customers with modern sales tools that are user friendly and quick to deploy, and help improve customer engagement through enhanced social and mobile capabilities, and leverage learned insights to improve constituent experience from actionable data, all with the speed and agility of the Cloud. Customers will be able to deliver great customer experience throughout the customer journey and across all interaction channels.

"Canadian organisations are evaluating and pursuing the benefits of cloud as both a business and deployment model to achieve these aspirations", stated Mario Meroni, area vice president, Oracle Canada Public Sector. "Our customers are now able to leverage the value of our world-class ERP, HCM, and CX cloud offerings while knowing their data resides in Canada."
