Why Oracle Cloud Solutions?

The idea of implementing new technology often leaves business leaders stressed out. Why change what has been working for years? How should you know which new solutions are a good choice for your business? Do these questions sound familiar? We hear them from business leaders all the time when we suggest making the move to cloud technology. That’s why we’re on a mission to take the stress out of Cloud migration for businesses. We even have a suggestion for the perfect Cloud solution, meaning you don’t have to sift through the crowded market place to find the right fit.

We recommend Oracle Cloud solutions to every business we work with. Why? Because Oracle provides the most reliable, dynamic, and business-focused Cloud technology on the market. However, even with our recommendation in hand, you might feel overwhelmed – unsure of how to best deploy and optimize the technology. That’s why we’re committed to helping you understand why partnering with a team of professional Oracle consultants will make all the difference.

Why Investing in Oracle Consultants Makes Business Sense

No matter how many different IT professionals tell you that Oracle Cloud technology is the best choice for your business, you’re still the one responsible for making it happen. But this doesn’t have to be the case. Countless IT professionals offer strategic consultation services – even ones that focus specifically on Oracle solutions.

By partnering with a team of professional Oracle consultants, you’ll be going a long way in terms of streamlining your Oracle migration process. The right consultant will be with you every step of the way – from helping you select the right Oracle software, to facilitating strategic deployment and providing ongoing optimization of each solution.

They’ll also make sure your Oracle deployment results in little or no disruption to critical business missions. Simply put, with a professional Oracle consultant in your corner, you can take advantage of all the strategic benefits of Oracle technology and deal with none of the stress that migration usually brings.

What You Should Be Looking for in an Oracle Consulting Provider – Questions to Ask

Now that we’ve explained why partnering with an Oracle consultant is a good business idea, you’re probably wondering: how do I go about finding the right provider? The fact of the matter is, finding a reliable and strategic provider is all about going into your search with a keen eye. As you survey different providers you should be trying to develop an idea of their approach to Oracle consultation and support.

How well do they know Oracle technology?

When looking for an Oracle consultant, the first and most obvious requirement is that they know their stuff about Oracle technologies. Do they have specialized training and knowledge when it comes to Oracle solutions? Can they explain these solutions to you with ease? Before you invest in an Oracle consultant be sure they know what they’re talking about and can clearly explain how deploying Oracle technologies will help your organization.

What does their Oracle consultation experience look like?

Once you know they have a handle on Oracle knowledge, it’s time to gauge each provider’s experience when it comes to offering Oracle consultation. Have they provided Oracle consultation to other businesses like yours? Do they have a detailed plan for offering strategic and customized consultation? Check with each consultant you work with and don’t be afraid to ask for testimonials or references from other clients who have received Oracle consultation.

How comprehensive are the services they provide?

Next, be sure to determine the breadth of Oracle services that each provider offers. Do they have specialized services that focus specifically on Oracle consultation, migration, management, and optimization? Can they help you with the entire Oracle transition process or do they only specialize in certain aspects of the migration? By getting to know how each provider’s Oracle services are structured, you’ll be able to determine if a consultant can provide the level of service and support you require.

What kind of the first impression did the initial consultation offer?

Finally, be sure to go with your gut and take account of the first impression given by each provider you consider. Did they listen clearly to your questions and concerns? Did they have constructive and easy-to-understand solutions to meet your needs? Did they help you understand why Oracle is the best choice for your business? Did they seem actively involved and passionate about driving success for your business? At the end of the day, choose a strategic consultant who gives you peace of mind from the very start.
