The software giant is opening its doors so SMBs can experience its cloud applications.
Oracle is known for its enterprise software but it’s aiming to attract more small and midsize businesses with its Oracle Cloud enterprise resource planning (ERP) and other solutions – and it’s launching a new Digital Hub in Sydney to showcase those solutions.
The company’s Sydney Digital Hub is its first in Australia, and one of five planned for the Asia Pacific region. Its purpose is to show small and midsize businesses how they can take advantage of Oracle Cloud to streamline operations, boost innovation and support growth.
Oracle will be using the latest collaboration tools, techniques and technologies to provide a contemporary buying experience, and visitors will be able to experience Oracle's complete suite of cloud applications, platform and infrastructure services as both standalone services and as bundles.
“The cloud is making IT much more accessible; you just need a computer or a mobile phone app to take advantage of it,” said Oracle ANZ managing director Rob Willis.
“More than that, it has incredible transformation potential for small Australian businesses. For instance, we are seeing the cloud enable smaller organisations to use technology to streamline business processes, gain access to an easy-to-use platform for innovation, and digitise their customer experience. Simply put, our SMBs are able to do things they have never been able to do before.”
For those who can't get to the Digital Hub or simply prefer to purchase online, the company offers the click-to-buy Oracle Accelerated Buying Experience.
Oracle ANZ head of applications for digital Malcolm Ferguson said the increased choice in cloud technology will help accelerate SMB's ability to innovate and grow more quickly.
“There are more than two million SMBs in Australia, many of whom haven't worked with Oracle or used cloud before. They now have access to the most modern solutions in the market, available online, direct via the hub and through our expanded end-to-end ecosystem, working with the vast [Oracle partner] network in ANZ."
The Digital Hub is located within Oracle's offices in Julius Avenue, North Ryde. Customers can call 1300 366 386 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to be connected with a team member who can help them with the product of interest.
