MBIE business unit charts migration to Oracle database as a service

MBIE wants to build the cloud’s speed, flexibility and ease of use into its current Datacom datacentres

The Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment's market service group wants cloud-like functionality out of its own data centre.

The Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment's market service group wants cloud-like functionality out of its own data centre.

The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment's market services group is poised to deploy Oracle database as a service for increased speed, agility, and cost savings.

The market services group (MSG) is the branch within the ministry that delivers services such as the Companies Office, Licensed Building Practitioners, GETS, IPONZ and Resolve.

The group's customer channels have been migrating from paper-based, to web, and now to system-to-system data flows.

"This has improved the effectiveness and efficiency of our services and made it simpler, more accurate, and convenient for New Zealanders to engage," an advance notice of the tender stated.

"Oracle is an integral part of some these applications; however the delivery of Oracle databases, infrastructure, and database administration services is resulting in service complexity, suboptimal performance and costs."

MSG will soon be looking for suppliers that can provide an Oracle database platform that includes infrastructure, software and services, combined, to form an Oracle DBaaS, or database as a service.

"We know that some vendors have created these types of services so they can be delivered on premise, within an organisations existing networked environment," MSG stated in its notice.

"This is perceived to be able to provide the advantages of the cloud’s speed, flexibility, and ease of use, right into MBIE’s data centres."

Registrations of interest are being sought from suppliers who already have such an Oracle DBaaS offering covering databases, database administration services and the underlying Oracle infrastructure.

The service will need to be delivered on premise in the Datacom data centres MBIE already uses.

In addition to design, infrastructure and professional services, MSG wants to be able to scale services up and down depending on demand and to only pay for capacity used.
