BENGALURU, India, Oct. 3, 2017 /CNW/ - Infosys (NYSE: INFY), a global leader in consulting, technology, outsourcing and next-generation services and Cloud Elite member of Oracle PartnerNetwork, today announced it has been awarded three Oracle Excellence Awards for expertly delivering solutions based on Oracle technology.
Infosys has been awarded the 2017 Oracle Excellence Award for Specialized Partner of the Year under CX Cloud category both globally and in North America. Infosys earned these two recognitions for its ability to deliver innovative customer experiences with a mobile-first approach. The company's offerings cover the entire spectrum of Oracle CX Cloud, including pre-built industry solutions and integrations through PaaS solutions.
Infosys has also won the 2017 Oracle Excellence Award for Specialized Partner of the Year in North America for the on-premise-to-cloud Business Model Transformation category. This award recognizes Infosys for providing a comprehensive, end-to-end Oracle Cloud solution spanning Software-as-a-Service, Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and lift-and-shift on-premise legacy applications to the cloud.
"Our goal was to provide our sales representatives, sales managers and sales leaders with meaningful intelligence that they can actually use to manage and measure their business," said Anil Roy, VP, Enterprise Applications, Ricoh USA Inc. "Infosys partnered with us for this CRM Transformation initiative to create the roadmap for future technology architecture for the organization. Together, we have started migration to Oracle Cloud PaaS to provide meaningful analytics to our sales teams. We not only expect significant cost savings but also anticipate a reduction in the time taken for a new business requirement to production deployment."
Infosys is also an Oracle Cloud Managed Service Provider (MSP), helping enterprises accelerate their cloud journey and achieve compelling business value by combining Oracle's IaaS and PaaS with expertise from Infosys Cloud Consulting, implementation and managed services. Infosys' differentiated tools and solutions, such as Infosys Workload Migration Suite and Infrastructure Management Suite, together with Oracle Infrastructure-as-a-Service can empower enterprises to leverage their existing IT investments while accelerating their journey to the cloud.
In addition to Infosys, two of its clients - Cummins and Ricoh - have also been recognized by Oracle with the 2017 Oracle Proactive Support Champion Individual Award and 2017 Oracle Innovation Award - Application Development, respectively, based on solutions Infosys helped these two companies implement.
Ravi Kumar S., President and Deputy COO, Infosys, said, "Winning Oracle Excellence Awards under CX Cloud and On-Premise-to-Cloud Transformation categories this year is an endorsement of our innovation, investments and expertise in Oracle Cloud Applications, platform and infrastructure. We are also proud to be collaborating with Oracle as a Cloud Elite Partner in empowering and accelerating our customers' journey to the cloud. Together, Infosys and Oracle reinvent enterprises, making them agile, connected and ready to succeed in the digital economy."
