The Journey to Oracle Cloud: Episode 01 - Meet the architect

We kick off our new series, The Journey to Oracle Cloud, with a talk with the architect, that presents the technology stack and the scope of the project.

 

Join us for a groundbreaking video blog series, as we follow Rafael Gonzalez and his team in a real-life Oracle Cloud migration project for one of our customers. Hopefully, the Journey to Oracle Cloud will lead to a successful project. No matter what, we will document the whole journey from beginning to end. And we hope that you will follow us along the way.

Meet the Architect

In episode 01, Rafael has a quick chat with cloud architect Ajit Hegde, about the scope and complexity of the cloud migration project. 

Moving to the cloud needs effort, but will substantially eliminate complexity in the operations.
- Ajit Hegde, SYSCO 

Ajit has a solid background of technology and has successfully helped many customers with their technology and data driven transformations. He is one of our SYSCO superheroes, with more than 15 years of experience within Oracle. Ajit also has extensive experience with ensuring customer adoption and success in the cloud.

The Oracle stack:

Business Intelligence (BI), Data Warehouse (DW), middleware and more

The customer has a 10 year old very complex platform, tied up around various Oracle solutions, such as Business Intelligence (BI), Data Warehouse (DW), middleware and more. The technical debt is quite deep.

It means that in order to come up with the best solution to move to the cloud in a structured and painless way (and without too much risk), there are many considerations that must be made.

You don’t want to boil the ocean but rather divide and conquer and put the method in place to move it to cloud in a risk-free manner
Ajit Hegde, SYSCO 

SYSCO provides specialized consultants with high professionalism as well as a secure operation and monitoring of IT infrastructure and databases both on-prem and in the cloud.

Across Norway, Sweden and Denmark, we have created the Nordic region's largest Oracle partner, where the mission is to transform complex IT challenges into digital success stories. It is a mission pursued through strong industry experience, as well as technological superpowers.

Our focus is always on the customer, and in SYSCO we make a virtue of understanding our customers' business, their current IT infrastructure, and the possibilities within technology.

Some of the primary challenges we see with our customers are how to deal with security, governance/control and the management of cloud costs.
