Companies running Oracle software are assessing the differences among Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (aka, OCI), AWS, Azure, and other cloud services. Whether to move to cloud is no longer the question; rather, when, how, and under what cost structure are the considerations.
Oracle is a relatively small player in general-purpose cloud computing at about 2% market share. That said, vast numbers of Oracle database, middleware, and ERP on-premise workloads are destined for cloud. Gartner predicts that Oracle’s cloud share will double if only due to these workloads being shoehorned into OCI.
If you intend to run Oracle over a longer term, then you can count on ending up in its cloud, at least as part of a hybrid-cloud strategy. Remend helps companies make this transition under their own terms, timing, and pricing.

Engage Remend for Oracle Expert Services
Remend understands the complexities of Oracle contracting, architectural design, and implementation. Adding Remend as a buffer between yourself and Oracle is especially important. Oracle’s goal is to secure and roll legacy fees into cloud subscriptions such that its revenues only increase even if locking you into paying for unused software. Your goal should be to optimize costs and create contractual flexibility.
