Cloud Computing changes the mix of your IT spend

Allowing you to focus on innovation
Instead of maintaining systems, reduce IT cost
And increase agility

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.

*Metrics: IT Spending and Staffing Report, 2012, Gartner

63% of IT spend is running day-to-day operations Quote: Three quarters of Finance Executives say Cloud Computing will be important in their success in the next 12 to 18 months.

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.

PureApps awards and endorsements for Specialisation and Implementation

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.

67% of finance executives say that moving to the cloud would yield a higher performance IT function. 68% of finance executives say that moving to the cloud would contribute to high-value activities.

Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service and Web Hosting, showing Rackspace as a leader.

This combination provides an unparalleled and competitive solution as an alternative to the conventional approach. The agreement will only be between PureAppsCloud and the customer so you would only ever need to deal with PureAppsCloud directly, who would then coordinate with Rackspace in the background where necessary.

Why Rackspace?

PureAppsCloud was determined to make sure that the Cloud was powered by the best of breed in terms of data centre standards, reliability and flexibility. To reach this conclusion, a number of well established hosting specialists were evaluated based on the following criteria from which we would want our customers to benefit:

  • DC Accreditation
  • Client List/References
  • Flexibility
  • SLAs
  • Cost
  • Lock-in period

Following exhaustive research, Rackspace emerged as the clear leader and is our hosting partner of choice.

Partnering with a market-leading hosting provider means that clients are offered an environment that meets the requirements of some of the most highly regarded global accreditations and control standards for data centres such as:

  • ISO 9001 (Quality Management)
  • ISO 27001 (Information Security)
  • ISAE 3402 Service Organisation Control
  • ISAE3402 (Environmental Management)
