Oracle investments continue to rise


PwC named as a Leader by IDC MarketScape  

According to the IDC MarketScape ‘Worldwide Application Modernization Services for Oracle Upgrades 2016 Vendor Assessment’, many enterprises are committed to leveraging their existing Oracle investments. Looking to service providers for assistance in upgrading their packaged applications, the arena for Oracle upgrade services is likely to grow more intense.  

The report highlights that “PwC rated highly against the range of services category because of the volume of Oracle application upgrade projects that the firm has performed over recent years.”

Commenting on achieving this positioning, Juan Pujadas, Global Advisory Chairman, said "We are delighted that we have been named a leader in this IDC MarketScape for application modernization services for Oracle Upgrades.  Oracle’s powerful technology lies at the heart of many companies ability to realise a wide range of objectives, from improving day to day operations to realising large scale, enterprise-wide transformational change.  We work with different industries, helping them to evolve and transform themselves, demonstrating how Oracle enabled change can help them.  From strategy through execution, our combination of business and technology advice helps companies achieve their technology goals, make improved decisions and capitalise on business opportunities.”
