SaaS & Cloud-based Hosting
Cloud Computing changes the mix of your IT spend
Companies are spending the majority of their IT budgets on maintaining current systems. In 2012, organizations estimated that they would spend 63 percent of their IT budget to run day-to-day operations*. Imagine what you could achieve if these resources were focussed on encouraging business growth and diversification.

SaaS – Oracle Software as a Service
The PureAppsCloud SaaS solution is recommended for customers who have not yet purchased their Oracle software licences and require an infrastructure solution within minimal time constraints. To facilitate this, PureAppsCloud has listened to the market and responded to the growing demands. This service was ultimately formulated to be more cost-effective than the conventional approach of purchasing the licences outright and building your own environment. This also leverages all of the benefits from the PureApps Cloud to allow high adoption, lower initial costs and seamless integration. All of this is combined with fully licensed Oracle products for the duration of your agreement period.
Support and Knowledge
There are other cloud-based offerings for Oracle EPM or Hyperion. However, these have been faced with a common issue relating to the lack of knowledge and expertise around Hyperion EPM & Oracle Business Analytics infrastructure. This is a very niche area but one where we believe PureAppsCloud has an edge in terms of having a dedicated team with the necessary skill set to design and build robust systems as well as resolving a wide variety of infrastructure issues.
PureAppsCloud offers a solid, dependable and secure platform for EPM & BA and draws on the 15 years breadth and depth of expertise and experience provided by PureApps. Today, PureApps are the Leading Full Service Provider for all Oracle Hyperion EPM and BA solutions. As an Oracle Platinum partner, PureApps win endorsements for Specialisation and Implementation year after year.
