    Optimize IT and Reduce Cost: Challenges

    While working on optimization of your IT infrastructure and saving costs, complexity is the biggest disaster you will encounter. Following are the challenges that you might face during the process.

    • It will require a lot of time, workforce, and budget to spend as you have several applications, data sources, and systems over time. Without automation, you will need to work more.
    • If there are multiple copies of data on scattered deployments, then it will lead to increased database infrastructure costs.
    • There will be difficulty in moving the application stacks to the cloud, and you might not be able to get the complete benefits.
    • The speed of packaged applications is insufficient to keep up with the increasing demands of business, and more help from manual administration is needed.
    • Being in the cloud may not be beneficial for you because you may not be able to run the workloads where you need them.

    Here are the significant pointers to overcome these challenges effectively.

    • Oracle supports multiple deployment options. As a result, it helps to create a simplified path to the cloud by reducing the cost, decreasing the complexity, and minimizing the time to implement.

    Providing Differentiated Experiences: Challenges

    • You need to be quick while adding the new capabilities to the existing environment.
    • Starting from scratch for several projects development can be a good option, but it wouldn’t be feasible to do because it involves a lot of time and risk of operational disruption.
    • Several organizations didn’t get the complete benefits while moving their workloads to the cloud. This happens because the functionality offered by their selected cloud service provider doesn’t fit their on-premises application, which leads to more time for migration.
    • There will be complications in the development and deployment of applications if there is fragmented data on specialized databases and services.

    Let’s explore the solutions to resolve these problems quickly.

    • Oracle Cloud provides 100+ different services, including over 60+ public cloud, sovereign cloud, multi-cloud, dedicated cloud, and Cloud@Customer locations.

    When you want to activate and monetize data, you might face several challenges during the process. Here are some of the challenges that you need to overcome.

    • Generally, data is stored in isolated silos, which are analyzed by isolated applications. However, it makes it difficult for individuals or teams to get an overall view (360-degree view) of what’s going on.
    • Due to unknown data timeliness, origin, and lineage, data and insights could not be reliable.
    • Your applications should be able to adjust to the evolving business requirements and data sources.
