On 23 September Capgemini announced the launch of three Oracle Engineered Systems service offerings as part of a global Capgemini initiative adopting a more Oracle Engineered Systems strategy. Oracle Engineered systems have already been part of the Capgemini portfolio with hundreds of Capgemini consultants trained and working on deploying systems at customers and providing day to day maintenance, operations and innovation towards customers who do have Oracle Engineered Systems as part of their portfolio. 
By launching the three new Oracle Engineered Systems service offerings we will focus more on Oracle Engineered systems in a industrialized manner to ensure we can offer our customers the potential benefits to customers, including lower costs, improved performance, simplified management, reduced platform risk, capacity on demand to scale to specific needs, and payment based on consumption.
Currently the three offerings are launched in the launching countries and the upcoming months will be rolled out globally. The official Capgemini press release can be found below and in the Capgemini media center
Paris, 23 September 2014, Capgemini, one of the world’s foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, today announced the availability of three new Oracle Engineered Systems service offerings developed in collaboration with Oracle. These service offerings enable customers to better leverage converged infrastructure to realize increased IT performance at a lower cost and with decreased risk.
With the explosion of data and the emergence of as-a-service models, organizations have increasing IT requirements to service their clients across multiple channels and secure environments, which is why they are turning more to converged infrastructure solutions like Oracle Engineered Systems. According to Gartner Inc., “Based on 2013 revenue rates, the estimated overall market for integrated systems will exceed $6 billion in 2014, with a growth rate of 50% over the prior year”.
To help customers better leverage the impact of these emerging technologies with services that consolidate their hardware and software and simplify their applications landscape, Capgemini has worked with Oracle to develop three service offerings that can enable customers to maximize the value of Oracle Engineered Systems:
  • Platform Rationalization with Management-as-a-Service and Outsourcing
  • Applications Modernization by Industry
  • Database Consolidation with Big Data and Analytics
These three service offerings offer a wide range of potential benefits to customers, including lower costs, improved performance, simplified management, reduced platform risk, capacity on demand to scale to specific needs, and payment based on consumption.
Capgemini will use the new offerings to enrich its solutions for customers. It has already helped leading transportation and logistics company Azkar consolidate its systems and applications on the Oracle Exadata Database Machine to enable a pay-per-use model.
Francisco Castillo, Head of Production, IT & Customer Experience at Azkar, said: “We have moved all together, Azkar, Capgemini and Oracle, into a solution that has reduced both our operating costs and software licenses needed, with only one vendor now supporting end to end and high performance for batch and online processes.”

In collaboration with Oracle, we are providing world-class service offerings for our customers with a host of benefits such as reducing the complexity and cost of IT infrastructure while optimizing productivity and performance.”
“We are delighted that Capgemini is already working with large customers around the globe to help them realize the benefits of moving to a standardized Oracle Engineered Systems platform,”  said Troy Richardson, Senior Vice President, Strategic Alliances, Oracle. “Capgemini’s vertical solution offerings delivered by dedicated resources will quickly ramp up the number of enterprises that can maximize the cost savings and performance improvements enabled by Oracle Engineered Systems. Oracle is looking forward to continued success with Capgemini and our customers in this prosperous market.”
