One of the first questions we hear from customers with on-premise business software systems is: ‘Why Cloud?’
Here are four key reasons:
- Financial savings – Cloud solutions cost 30% less than on-premise systems.
- Rapid implementation times – three to six months compared with 12-18 months for on-premise systems.
- Keep pace with technology – businesses can take full advantage of the latest mobile, social and analytic capabilities as they develop.
- Ongoing evolution – Cloud applications can be rolled out piece-by-piece with the ability to add more over time.
Oracle predicts that by 2025, 80% of corporate IT budgets will be spent on cloud services, and that 90% of enterprise data will be stored in the Cloud.
These huge figures demonstrate that cloud-based applications are the way of the future, and that more organisations are moving to the Cloud.
Oracle’s Cloud offering is unique in that it allows businesses to integrate software as a service (Saas), infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) from one provider. This is one of the reasons why PrimeQ has chosen to partner exclusively with Oracle to create successful outcomes for our clients.
Furthermore, Oracle predicts that by 2025, 80% of IT spend will be on innovation rather than maintenance, thanks to the Cloud. Businesses will have reduced need for maintenance, allowing them to concentrate their focus on innovation and business improvements.
The Cloud Environment
- Multi-Cloud Strategy
- Single Cloud Strategy
85% of Enterprises already have a multi-cloud strategy, combining services such as ERP, Marketing, HR and Transportation management.
- $US SaaS Spend
Over the next 2 years, SaaS spending is anticipated to reach more than $US120B worldwide, demonstrating the huge demand for cloud services.
- Mobile Traffic
- Non-Mobile Traffic
With 90% of traffic anticipated to be on mobile devices by 2019 (phones & tablets) instead of traditional methods, cloud systems are essential not optional.
As Oracle Cloud specialists, PrimeQ can accelerate your path to the cloud using a wide spectrum of Oracle Cloud Applications and Technologies that include Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) products.
Whether you need the ease and reliability of a Public Cloud solution, the security and internal control of a dedicated Private Cloud, or a Hybrid implementation that offers the benefits of both, the PrimeQ team can deliver an Oracle Cloud solution that will fulfil your business requirements.
We can also help ensure a smooth transition to the cloud for your on-premise applications, supporting a Roadmap that can begin with a single business process, then proceed to full business functions, and finally result in the migration of complete end-to-end processes.
Our experts can provide you with new-install solutions from Oracle’s Cloud Applications range and also migrate existing Oracle applications – such as JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and Oracle E-Business Suite – to the Oracle Cloud.

Best In Class, In The Cloud
Oracle’s Transport Management development has been consistent and extensive over the years since the product was first acquired from G-Log in 2005, and now enhanced for the Cloud. In 2009 Oracle also extended its footprint to include Global Trade Management providing a unique, cross-border trade system.
In the past, on premise installations or managed platform models equated to significant upfront investment and tie-in with global vendors and generic implementation models, but no longer.
What Our Logistics Team Can Do For You
A well-implemented logistics solution will provide a collaborative, multi-faceted view of your supply chain; a common platform for your suppliers, sites, stores, customers and indeed all concerned parties who have an influence over the smooth running of your supply chain.

- Visibility and reporting for you and your customers.
