Oracle Introduces Oracle Government Cloud For North American Region

Tech giant Oracle launched the Oracle Government Cloud today in the North American region with an aim to strengthen its connection with government agencies as the top cloud service provider. The Oracle Government Cloud, in its essence, is an advanced form of the Oracle Cloud solution, delivering a broad and complete portfolio of public, private and hybrid cloud offerings.

Through a news release on its website, Oracle claimed that its new cloud solution is the ‘best-in-class’ option available in the market that offers ‘integrated capabilities across multiple service options’ for government agencies.

In the news release, Oracle stated that by deploying an innovative solution in the form of the Oracle Government Cloud, government agencies would be capable of availing themselves more agility and options as they manage operations and deliver constituent services.

With packages like the Oracle Service Cloud, Oracle RightNow Policy Automation and Oracle Learn Cloud, these agencies would also be able to streamline a breadth of business processes, from financial and human resources management to customer service and project management.

Oracle also announced that it would soon make services like Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) available to its government clients on the cloud platform. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Adelaide O’Brien, Research Director of IDC Government Insights said that the announcement from Oracle holds deep significance in terms of the current landscape of cloud technologies in the government sector.

With Oracle Government Cloud, Oracle provides government organizations with a secure, flexible platform that helps them realize new efficiencies, respond quickly to changes in legislation and policy and deliver excellent constituent service,” he opined in the interview.

The Wall Street Journal also quoted Mark Johnson, senior vice president of Oracle Public Sector, who stated that: “We are very excited to meet our public sector customers’ demands for a highly secure, robust suite of cloud solutions built for government.”

The maturity and transparency of the standards-based Oracle Government Cloud will enable agencies to confidently move mission-critical government applications to the cloud without compromising security, performance, or reliability,” he added. “We are committed to helping agencies enhance operational efficiency through the cloud,” the VP further said in the interview.
