Bold companies know that innovation is the path to success. With markets in a permanent state of disruption, and traditional industry lines blurring, they see that their customers have more options, their workforces have more mobility, and their suppliers expect more than ever.
These leaders know that to meet the elevated demands of the new consumer and business landscape, the enterprise must acquire next-level agility, innovation, and collaboration, both inside and outside the organization. For this reason, many are turning to Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions to fast-track transformation.
The upside is clear. SaaS provides a cloud framework for continuous innovation. It standardizes processes, automates functions and modernizes core applications cost-effectively. It also enables new levels of personalization to fit today’s customer, employee and supplier expectations.
The downside? A one-size-fits-all SaaS approach can lead to a misalignment between standard SaaS functionality and business processes. That can mean enterprises having to compromise on functionality, create workarounds, or find extensions to their SaaS solutions.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) aims to resolve this by simplifying the connection of Oracle SaaS solutions with other enterprise systems. It acts as the "connective tissue" linking SaaS with enterprise data and complex business requirements to deliver a high-performing system overall.
