Vodafone and Oracle Collaborate to Speed Up Technology Modernization

Vodafone | June 22, 2022

In order to modernize the operator's European IT infrastructure and hasten its shift to the cloud, Oracle and Vodafone, the largest pan-European and African technological communications firm, established a strategic alliance. A major portion of Vodafone's systems will be updated and moved to OCI Dedicated Region, a fully managed cloud region that integrates all of Oracle's public cloud services into Vodafone's own network and data centers, as part of the multi-year arrangement. As a result, in addition to updating its tens of thousands of Oracle databases, Vodafone will be able to support and extend its mission-critical OSS and BSS services, such as CRM and order management, on a dedicated cloud platform. Vodafone will be able to develop new cloud-based applications more quickly thanks to the deployment, and by utilizing its geographic reach, it will be able to simultaneously launch them in a number of markets. In Vodafone's primary data centers, which oversee its European IT and network operations, Oracle will implement OCI Dedicated Region. As a result, Vodafone will be able to more easily meet the latency and performance requirements of these applications by deploying public cloud services inside of its own network and data centers. In addition, this will allow the operator to modernize, manage, and automate its critical systems using new technologies like autonomous services. "As Vodafone focuses on growth, data is key to how we evolve our business, build new capabilities and innovate to meet the needs of our customers. Our collaboration with Oracle supports our vision of becoming a technology communications company. The agreement enables Oracle to bring its entire portfolio of cloud services directly into Vodafone data centers. This includes the same architecture, software, services and control plane used in OCI public cloud. The flexibility offered by OCI enables us to build a robust, secure, and extensible cloud platform in our own data centers, while also providing the operational agility and scalability required to support the growth and diversification of our business." Scott Petty, Chief Digital & IT Officer, Vodafone The collaboration backs Vodafone's multi-year commitment to streamline and update the IT infrastructure that underpins its mission-critical systems into a common, on-premises, open-standard platform ready to support and scale next-generation digital services. Additionally, it will assist Vodafone in achieving its Tech 2025 objectives, which include speeding up the time it takes to market new services, delivering standout client experiences through always-on services, and cutting operating costs through automation. "Now more than ever, telecom companies need to quickly adopt new technologies to deliver new innovative products at speed while continuing to meet evolving regulatory requirements. Our partnership with Vodafone is based on achieving this balance, providing a cloud platform that enables Vodafone to modernize and consolidate its existing infrastructure while also building a foundation for a digital future. We are looking forward to partnering with one of the telecom sector's digital trailblazers as we help shape the next generation of communication services and business models," said Jonathan Tikochinsky, executive vice president, global strategic clients, Oracle.
