In my last article, I clarified a few easy steps you can take to optimize performance for your aging Oracle software systems. Following these steps helps you achieve an even greater ROI by keeping your systems relevant for years to come. If you haven’t read Part 1 yet, I highly recommend it.
In this follow-up, Part 2 of the short series, I’ll discuss the last and perhaps most productive step you can take to streamline and optimize your software and systems.
Of course, if you’d like help with any of these steps or you’d like further advice about how you can enhance your current Oracle software, please contact Centroid for more information.
Step 3: Integrate and Consolidate
As the saying goes for efficient problem solving, “two heads are better than one.” This holds true for efficiency in modern business software as well.
If you’re tired of wasting time with endless imports and exports or you suspect you’re often working with outdated data, you can choose to integrate your Oracle software with your trading or banking partners for seamless, effortless information sharing. This can keep your internal data more up to date, speed payments, and even result in faster, more confident decision making for a more agile business.
But external integration is only one part of the puzzle.
Another great way to get more out of your existing Oracle software is to intelligently consolidate your architecture so you can free up processing power, reduce energy costs, and eliminate redundant toolsets.
If you’re ready to move to the cloud, you can also investigate cost-saving cloud solutions, such as Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) or Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Cloud hosting is also a popular choice for businesses wanting to limit their overall IT footprint.
