Britehouse has become one of Oracle’s first South African partners to achieve Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) Specialisation.
Members of the Oracle Partner Network (OPN) that achieve this specialisation have demonstrated their expertise to sell, architect and implement Oracle’s cloud infrastructure solution, which enables them to deploy and manage customer workloads in the cloud.
Britehouse, a Dimension Data-owned company that provides digital solutions, is a Platinum level and Cloud Select member of OPN, and was one of the first Oracle partners in Africa to achieve Cloud Specialisation status, as well as deploy Oracle Cloud HCM and ERP solutions to customers in the territory.
“Becoming Oracle’s first partner in South Africa to obtain IaaS Specialisation is another milestone in our vision to invest in upskilling our employees, and become the leader in the provision of Oracle services and products in the Middle East and Africa,” says Britehouse CEO Paolo Masselli. “Our strengths already cover the entire Oracle stack with specific success in Oracle Cloud SaaS, PaaS, IaaS, Fusion Middleware, Database, Engineered Solutions, JD Edwards, PeopleSoft, HCM and eBusiness Suite.”
According to a July 2016 report by research firm IDC, global public cloud IaaS revenues are set to more than triple, from $12,6-billion in 2015 to $43,6-billion in 2020, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 28,2% over the five-year forecast period.
“Driving IaaS adoption across Africa is a key focus for Oracle. South Africa has traditionally been an early adopter of latest technologies and the same is true for IaaS as well. Our IaaS offerings enable customers to be agile while reducing cost and enhancing speed to connect with customers and partners,” says Stefan Diedericks, alliance and channel director at Oracle South Africa.
“We are excited to collaborate with Britehouse and are confident that with its skilled team and extensive network, Britehouse will play an important role in helping us drive IaaS adoption in South Africa.”
Oracle Cloud IaaS offers a set of core capabilities, such as elastic compute, storage, networking, bare metal, migration tools, and container that helps businesses quickly increase value and performance.
