Oracle, on Tuesday, announced that Xerox, a company continually redefining the workplace experience, selected Oracle Cloud to support the launch of new businesses aiming to solve some of the world’s most pressing problems at a massive scale.
It is expected that this association will enable the latter’s new businesses to deliver much-needed capabilities, such as industrial IoT to monitor critical infrastructure, 3D printing for manufacturing, and augmented reality for customer support.
“Our vision is to launch breakaway businesses powered by breakthrough technologies as quickly as possible so that we can work to solve these problems facing our planet and society. In order to do that, we needed a unified cloud platform across the entire business. With Oracle Cloud and Oracle NetSuite, we have the underlying foundation in place, which will allow us to operate with agility and speed. We’re now able to quickly launch business models and processes on a single platform with no integration required.”Naresh Shanker, senior vice president and chief technology officer, Xerox
Xerox intended to broaden its business portfolio by launching new and innovative businesses based on disruptive technologies as part of its goal to address important societal concerns. However, because of its existing IT infrastructure, Xerox had to spend longer than anticipated time to create the systems required to support a new business.
And now with the help of Oracle Cloud Solutions, Xerox is bringing new technologies, such as 3D printing for manufacturing, structural health monitoring for critical infrastructure, and augmented reality, for better customer support.
“For more than a century, Xerox has been at the forefront of business technology innovation. We’re proud to partner with the company as it applies that same dedication and expertise to solving pressing global issues.”Jonathan Tikochinsky, executive vice president, strategic clients group, Oracle
Xerox collaborated with Deloitte and Infosys to adopt a wide range of Oracle Cloud services to help its innovation businesses get off the ground faster and monetize services more quickly. Using Oracle Cloud and NetSuite, Xerox’s businesses can sell online, create orders, process invoices, track performance, execute financial planning, and send and receive data without involving the IT department.
