The University is seeking a strategic partner to deliver a managed service for Oracle Campus Solutions.
This approach will seek to deliver a support model which:
— Eliminates as far as is possible the need to own both hardware and the supporting operating system environments — i.e. reduces the need for capital to near zero.
— Provides a more scalable platform — the ability to throttle capacity up and down, as the business demand changes.
— Gives the business a clear and transparent cost model of providing the core platform.
— Gains from economies of scale by sharing infrastructure resources and new technologies, better than we are able to do for ourselves.
— Provides a more responsive DR capability with a shorter recovery to operation time (RTO).
— The ability to leverage partner resources as required.
— Delivers development and configuration capability of the required skill level.
— Positions the University to leverage that platform going forward.
