Cloud competition intensifies as Oracle NZ reaffirms public cloud credentials

Cloud competition intensifies as Oracle NZ reaffirms public cloud credentials

“Oracle cloud is the industry’s broadest and most integrated public cloud.”

Less than five years ago, Oracle faced criticism for apparently “missing” the cloud.

As reported by Computerworld New Zealand, industry critics subsequently believed that the company faced a decline in relevance because a significant cohort of trendy “as-a-service” competitors entered the fray.

But as explained during the company’s Oracle Cloud Day in Auckland, the tech giant hasn’t missed the cloud, rather timed its play to perfection.

“Oracle cloud is the industry’s broadest and most integrated public cloud, offering best-in-class services cars software-as-a-service, platform-as-a-service and data-as-a-service,” says Robert Gosling, Managing Director, Oracle New Zealand.

“We help organisations drive innovation and business transformation by supporting business guilty, providing a lowering cost model and reducing business complexity.”

According to Gosling, in New Zealand and overseas, today’s business world demands “agility like never before.”

Consequently, organisations are increasingly expected to speed up time-to-market, drive innovation and respond quickly to market changes.

“With increasing limitations of capital and resources, organisations need to rely on technology to support and drive this new paradigm,” Gosling adds.

“Oracle has always supported our customers moving from the disrupted to the disrupter, we understand the demands on organisations and know the tools and resources required to succeed in the new business world.

“The advent of cloud as a disruptive delivery model to support innovation is nothing new, having a complete and integrated cloud portfolio is where we see true agility and cost efficiency.”

With the company pounding its public cloud chest in front of key Kiwi partners and customers in Auckland, industry analysts once again unite to ask that million-dollar cloud question; is Oracle becoming a cloud force to be reckoned with?

Or perhaps more importantly, should Amazon and Microsoft be worried?

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
