Eyewear Company Migrates to OCI Upgrading Database Inflight

Utilization of Oracle cloud credits to drive modernization

Challenge

Leverage existing Oracle cloud credits to migrate Oracle EBS to newer infrastructure with the inclusion of DR. Lower the TCO with ongoing offshore 24x7 managed services support and an ability to easily scale in the future.

Solution

ITC’s experience in on-premises and traditional hosting platforms provided the baseline for architecture and TCO, solving the challenges of aging hardware and outdated database software with a database upgrade during the migration itself.

Even with the onset of COVID-19, the migration proceeded as per plan, and production cutover was a seamless non-event for the company with the inclusion of an Open VPN deployment for remote user access.
