Solution: Oracle Cloud Modernisation

Bridon Bekaert Ropes Group - Oracle Cloud Modernisation

Bridon Bekaert: Ropes Group sought the help of DSP in early 2018, to advise on how best to deal with their ageing estate. DSP recommended a partial migration to Oracle Cloud, pairing consolidated infrastructure with Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud Services for a more agile estate.

The Challenge

BBRG had an ageing Datacentre and Oracle infrastructure consisting of Oracle technology including:

  • Oracle Database (previously running in a virtualised environment)
  • Oracle Weblogic and Internet Application Server (including Forms & Reports)
  • Oracle Discoverer and Internet Developer Suite

The Solution

DSP helped BBRG modernise the estate, leveraging Oracle’s Cloud services. The primary modifications suggested in their consultation required both on-premise and Cloud alterations:

  • On-premise – Oracle Database deployed on consolidated infrastructure
  • Oracle Cloud – Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud Services to consolidate the web-tier and BI functions

The Result

  • Consolidated Database footprint & Scalable and flexible estate as the business grows
  • Predictable low cost incremental infrastructure requirements
  • Removed the costs of ageing DC and hardware
