The Role of Automation in a Hybrid Cloud Strategy

“Hybrid cloud is our foundation and focus,” said Oracle Senior Vice President Steve Daheb in a Wall Street Journal special report published last October. If you attended this year’s OpenWorld conference, Oracle’s flagship user group event, you know that this sentiment was echoed through the keynotes from the firm’s leaders.

As a Oracle Diamond-level Cloud Premier partner, Capgemini helps many firms on their hybrid cloud journey and the role of automation is a topic that we’re increasingly discussing with current and potential clients as part of their larger digital transformation efforts. To respond to this increasing need to embed automation across the organization within IT, processes and applications, Capgemini created Automation Drive to provide enterprises with an end-to-end solution.

Part of this solution, (R)evolution, is Capgemini’s next generation Application Development and Maintenance (ADM) offering.  It enables companies to accelerate the innovation of their digital core assets and capabilities. This automated platform is based on Cloud, integrated ADM and intelligent business automation services with a focus on enabling highly autonomous IT and business operations.

Leveraging external partners is a core component of this approach. One of our partners, Automic, has extensive out-of-the-box Oracle automation capabilities across IT and business operations, including automating and orchestrating Oracle month-end financial close processing which has consistently reduced close cycles by 50 percent or more.
