Specialised infrastructure, database, software and integration company and Oracle partner ETS has launched an Oracle Cloud Business Unit to help enterprises move to the Oracle Cloud.

Grant McClymont, Executive of Cloud and Enterprise Applications at ETS, says the new focus on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) is an evolution of ETS’s traditional role as an on-premises systems and technology reseller, implementation and support provider.

McClymont says while some businesses are choosing to keep their core business applications on-premises, cloud adoption is increasing in South Africa. “Moving IT workloads to the cloud offers customers cost and performance gains in this tight economic climate. As both sovereignty and security issues are better understood and addressed, the C-level is recognising that as part of a larger digital transformation strategy, moving to the cloud can assist in meeting both business and IT goals,” he says.

ETS has invested heavily over the past year in upskilling and certifying its team to leverage its Oracle experience to help clients migrate their on-premises workloads to the Oracle Cloud.
