WATCH: Software Vendors On Why Oracle Cloud Won Their Business

In the midst of a crowded cloud market, software vendors tell CRNtv that Oracle Cloud infrastructure is offering them perks that others don’t.

Oracle may not be the leader in the cloud market, but new advancements in AI and security have the platform gaining ground in the competitive market. Here’s why HighJump Software, FICO and KNAPP are choosing to run their enterprise and cloud native applications on Oracle.

“Oracle has a great footprint in the retail and supply chain space,” said Douglas Care of FICO, a data analytics company focused on credit scoring services based in San Jose, Calif. Recently, FICO adopted Oracle Cloud to host a streaming decision-management platform for retailers and supply chain customers.

“We’ve had a good technical relationship with them around this product,” said Care. “The interplay between our decision management platform streaming application, which is what the partnership is all about, that performs really well with Oracle cloud and with Oracle infrastructure behind it.”

Sean Elliott, the chief technology officer at HighJump, said Oracle sticks out for its price-performance and security. HighJump is a global provider of supply chain management based in Minneapolis, Minn. The company made its first deal with Oracle in early 2018 and now has 15 clients running workloads on Oracle’s infrastructure.

“We found a great partner in Oracle to not only help with the technical aspect, but to help with the on-boarding, go-to-market approaches, which evolves not only our technical approach to the cloud but the way we think about cloud enabling our business and our customers,” said Elliott.

KNAPP, whose U.S. headquarters is in Kennesaw, Ga., said Oracle Cloud is the only infrastructure it trusts to handle its large amount of data. KNAPP is a global provider of intelligent automation solutions for intralogistics and manufacturing. Execs say its partnership with Oracle cloud has transitioned it from a warehouse automation company to a data-as-as-service provider.

“The systems we are providing, they need almost real-time reaction, highly reliable data set. We can not afford to lose any data, be late,” said Rudy Lueg, senior vice-president of sales at KNAPP. “I believe it’s important to understand the automation systems we are providing (robotics, conveyors, shuttle systems) they need to run on a solid data platform. So way back then, we made a decision to run this on Oracle and we’ve had a superior experience with Oracle Database.”
