REDWOOD SHORES, CA: Oracle announces the release of Oracle Cloud Platform Ready for Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), a new cloud-based based platform which enables ISVs transition to the cloud.
According to IDC, by the year 2018 almost half of IT spending will be cloud-based marking the transition to the cloud is one of the most significant IT transformations in history.
The new cloud platform from Oracle will allow ISVs to quickly register and publish their Oracle cloud-compatible applications on the Oracle Cloud Marketplace, enabling them to realize new business opportunities in the cloud.
The Oracle Cloud Platform Ready for Independent Software Vendors is a part of Oracle Partner Network (OPN), a partnership program designed to help market products through a tiered participation program.
Oracle Cloud Platform Ready provides OPN members who are at the silver level or higher a simple way to create an initial application listing on Oracle Cloud Marketplace in the Platform and Infrastructure section in no time.
Any partner application that supports an Oracle Cloud-compatible operating system or technology product will be able to run on the Oracle Cloud without having to be rewritten, and at no added cost. To speed up the time to market, partners will be able to request access to Oracle Cloud specialists and other technical resources directly from the Oracle Cloud Platform Ready registration.
Furthermore, ISVs with an Oracle Cloud Marketplace listing can also be eligible for the Oracle Cloud ISV Partner of the Year award and can apply for OPN Cloud Standard program benefits which include easy access to Oracle Cloud development and test environments.
Partners can also benefit from the new services by being able to reach Oracle’s wide ranging customer-base, field sales, 25,000 global partners and 15 million developers through better marketing and promotion efforts.
“The cloud represents a huge opportunity for our ISV partner community,” says Dan Miller, Senior Vice President of ISV, OEM and Java Sales, Oracle. “Through the Oracle Cloud Marketplace, and joint initiatives like Oracle Cloud Platform Ready, we are enabling ISV partners to focus more on their unique innovation, while leveraging the Oracle Cloud to get their solutions in front of a broad market of potential users quickly and at scale.”
