In a move to explore more opportunities in Africa,Oracle officially opened its new office premises on Victoria Island in Lagos.Nigeria. The new office in Lagos will house Oracle’s sales, human resources, and operational functions to service the West African region.Interestingly, Oracle’s revenue in the region has grown over the years, along with its partner ecosystem that has increased in size by 30% over the past three years.
Oracle customers are rapidly adopting mobile, social and cloud technologies to transform their businesses, said Adebayo Sanni, Oracle Nigeria’s country leader. “They are delivering services that weren’t possible before and they are finding very smart ways to bring their products to market. Throughout Africa we have seen remarkable innovation and transformation.
“With cloud adoption rates accelerating, this ability becomes even more prevalent. Software as a Service (SaaS) is becoming ingrained in the sector’s consciousness and Platform as a Service (PaaS) is also gaining traction,” he said.“IT systems have to be fast and simple to be able to be agile.” We’re very excited by the opening of Oracle’s latest state-of-the-art facility here in Nigeria and look forward to continuing to provide world-class solutions to help our customers and partners innovate and grow in the region” concluded Sanni.
