If there’s one thing all business leaders learned from 2021, it was that agility is the #1 key to success in times of uncertainty. 

The other key learning of 2021 was that agility is only truly possible with the cloud – so what’s your plan for Oracle Cloud migration? 

Your Options for Oracle Cloud Migration 

If your enterprise is already running Oracle solutions such as Oracle Database or Oracle E- Business Suite, your best bet is to move those Oracle solutions to the Oracle Cloud. This is because the Oracle Cloud is optimized to run Oracle workloads with outstanding security, performance, and flexibility that none of the other leading clouds can deliver. 

(You can also run Oracle workloads on AWS and the other cloud platforms of course, you’ll just want to work with an Oracle multicloud expert like Centroid to ensure your transition goes smoothly and predictably.) 

When moving to the Oracle Cloud, you have 2 main options: 

  • Update your existing solutions to their cloud counterparts; or 
  • Transform your on-premises solutions with cloud flexibility


Let’s discuss each of these options briefly. 

  • Update existing solutions to their cloud counterparts 

Oracle Cloud Apps / SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) solutions run naturally and seamlessly on the Oracle Cloud. 

Solutions such as Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle JD Edwards, and Oracle PeopleSoft can all be updated to Oracle ERP Cloud to power real-time data availability, anywhere / anytime access, and a reduced need for IT equipment and staff. 

In the past, cloud migration was a slow, nerve-racking process that could cause massive business disruption, but modern, cutting-edge migration solutions like the one-of-a-kind Centroid Lightning tool can overcome Oracle Cloud implementation challenges and cut Oracle Cloud migration time in half.

  • Transform your on-premises solutions with cloud flexibility 

Sometimes Oracle Cloud Apps, such as Oracle ERP Cloud, simply won’t fit your business’s needs. 

Perhaps the solution is missing key features or perhaps you have implemented a wide range of customizations that simply don’t translate to the conformity of a cloud app. In those cases, the right choice is to migrate your existing solutions directly to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (Oracle OCI).

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure delivers the flexibility and agility of the cloud in terms of reduced infrastructure, enhanced access, and seamless scalability. It also empowers your enterprise to “get out of the datacenter business” while maintaining full, granular control over your Oracle solutions.

Start on Your Cloud Journey to Success Right Now

Whether you intend to update your legacy, on-premises Oracle solutions to their modern cloud counterparts, or your Oracle Cloud migration consists of an OCI migration in which you move your existing solutions entirely to a cloud environment, your first step to an Oracle Cloud Migration should be to craft a plan that works for your precise needs.
