Cloud computing and related services are going to be revolutionary no doubt, a technology where brands like Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Facebook etc are leaving no stones unturned as big players, new leaders and businesses will surely emerge in cloud services but one brand that is enforcing her leadership is Oracle. Oracle is strategically deepening her operations and presence in Nigeria and Africa and for me I find that very interesting following these developments

The latest from Claire Alexander, PR expert for Oracle in Africa is that Oracle recently announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Instantis, a leading provider of cloud-based and on-premise project portfolio management (PPM) solutions. Instantis enables IT departments, product development teams, and business process leaders to manage multiple corporate initiatives, and improve strategic alignment, execution, and financial performance. By combining Instantis with leading capabilities from Oracle’s Primavera and Fusion Applications, Oracle expects to provide the most comprehensive set of cloud-based and on-premise Enterprise Project Portfolio Management solutions .The combined Oracle solutions will provide the ability to manage, track and report on enterprise strategies – from capital construction and maintenance, to manufacturing, IT, new product development, Lean Six Sigma, and other corporate initiatives.

“Organizations realize the need for a more simplified approach to address project portfolio management initiatives – and yet most solutions are too complicated and expensive to deploy,” said Mike Sicilia, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Primavera. “By adding Instantis, Oracle can help customers gain complete visibility and control of their mission-critical project initiatives using a top-down approach suited for projects throughout the entire organization.” “Oracle’s acquisition of Instantis represents a strong endorsement of the Enterprise Track cloud-based technology and the value customers have achieved with our solutions. We’re excited to be a part of Oracle as we combine resources to help the business scale more rapidly,” said Prasad Raje, CEO and Founder, Instantis.

And in Nigeria recently, Software experts  also gathered to deliberate on Cloud Computing and the future of Software Nigeria.
