[Advertisement] Denovo The Choice Starts Here… Your Journey to the Cloud with Denovo It’s no longer just a trend. More than ever, IT professionals are taking notice of the Cloud message and considering their next steps. The Cloud message can be confusing because it is an evolving strategy. First, let’s unravel the general confusion a lot of customers have expressed regarding the Cloud message by defining two key options; “SaaS” and “Cloud.” “SaaS” is Software as a Service which resides in the Cloud. For the past ten years, most established and traditional on-premise application providers, including Oracle, have transitioned their applications to not only be available on-premise but also as a subscription model in the Cloud. In contrast, the “Cloud” really refers to cloud computing, in which your organization purchases a software license and installs it in the Cloud on hardware managed by another company. In both cases, Denovo offers a methodology that marries both approaches. According to a 2015-2016 study by Mint Jutras, an independent consulting company (http://www.mintjutras.com), over 27% of enterprise companies will be most likely to leave their existing system in place while supplementing with a primary cloud solution, while another 23% will operate predominantly from the Cloud to solve their business processes. Integrating both an Oracle “SaaS” and “Cloud” strategy requires the breadth of expertise which only Denovo can provide. This type of integration is often referred to as a “Hybrid” cloud solution which Denovo has implemented for many organizations, including a leading Global Service Provider and their instance of Oracle E-Business Suite. Their objective was to modernize their lead to cash business process by integrating Oracle Sales Cloud, Eloqua and Oracle Social Cloud to their traditional on-premise EBS financial. Denovo “...over 27% of enterprise companies will be most likely to leave their existing system in place while supplementing with a primary cloud solution, while another 23% will operate predominantly from the Cloud to solve their business processes.” solved this unique problem by hosting their Oracle EBS instance in a private cloud taking advantage of the latest cloud technology and its management efficiencies.
