4. The Human Element
Namos Oracle Analytics Consultants are what a jockey is to a highly trained race horse. It takes a winning combination to succeed. The right platform is only half of the story, you need the right people to help drive a winning solution.

Change is difficult. Undoing years of investment, and moving to something new, or changing something old always comes with a lot of risk and uncertainty.

Namos take a holistic approach to Oracle application cloud migration, ensuring we can deliver modernisation, and take advantage of the increased performance levels and lower costs of moving to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. We know EBS is still relied on heavily for business-critical functions and workloads by many of our customers. When contemplating modernising, and driving cost efficiency in these applications, it’s crucial that we get it right.

With 25 years of Oracle experience, we have carried out OCI migrations for many customers for their on-premise applications including; E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, Hyperion, JD Edwards, and Essbase.

Organisations know that with Namos they are going to get a trusted partner who always puts their interests first. We can offer advice and guidance, or a Healthcheck to help you understand the right way to move your business-critical applications to the cloud.

With Cloud becoming more and more prevalent in day-to-day business, good Cloud security posture has never been more essential.

Whether your organisation includes multiple discrete business units or is a public sector body, modern business practices require a fundamentally different approach to cloud security, especially with regards to user identity and authentication management.

Namos are trusted Oracle Partners and can help you explore options and provide recommendations on user management, segmenting user groups, providing federated services or even just rolling out robust two factor authentication regimes. We generally base our solutions around two Oracle capabilities in IDCS or IAM, depending on whether the solution is infrastructure or user management related.

Oracle Identity Cloud Service offers identity management with single sign-on (SSO) and identity governance for applications on-premise, in the cloud, or for mobile apps. The application can be securely accessed by any user at any time or place.

Implementing Oracle Identity Cloud Service provides a robust platform which enables users to develop and deploy applications in a secure manner, with key benefits such as; enhanced business responsiveness, user productivity, increased access channels, lower cost and simplified IT.

There are many ways you can use the Oracle IDCS, which enables administrators and users to securely create, manage and maintain a cloud-based environment.

With Oracle IDCS you can:

  • Perform Self-Service Capabilities – whereby you can; recover or change a password, modify your profile, establish your primary and password recovery email addresses, activate your deactivated account, unlock your account and access the Apps assigned to you.
  • Manage 2-step Verification.
  • Work with Oracle Mobile Authenticator app.
  • Manage default settings
  • Manage Security Settings.
  • Manage Self-Registration.
  • Profiles – you can create self-registration profiles to manage different sets of users, approval procedures and apps in IDCS.
  • Manage Users, Groups and Applications – you can set up or remove users, groups and applications.

Oracle’s Cloud Applications will generally meet most of your business needs as long as you can standardise, but there may be a few areas where you simply HAVE to differentiate. This is where SaaS Extensions come in.

SaaS Extensions enhance and differentiate your Oracle Cloud applications by giving end users seamless navigation, security and look-and-feel between the standard product and the SaaS extension. Oracle have strict guidance for developing and deploying SaaS Extensions, and Namos have years of experience creating these components to help customers innovate, differentiate, and comply with regulations.

Development times can act as a significant inhibitor for organisations trying to create personalised and connected experiences for customers and staff. That’s where Oracle Platform as a Service (PaaS) is designed to support you. It helps you innovate with custom mobile apps, chatbots, low-code dev tools, and headless content management. It simplifies the process of modernising the experience you offer your customers, partners and staff.

Oracle PaaS boosts engagement by delivering relevant contextual information as well as real-time, intelligent analytics for smarter business decisions. It supports Oracle and non-Oracle applications, both on-premise and SaaS.

The conventional ways of developing mobile or web apps are too costly and take too long for business needs. This all changes with the Oracle App Dev Platform.

The Oracle App Dev Platform is an integrated, modern, and API-first cloud platform for App Dev. It lets your front-end developers build the most engaging user experiences, while enabling your backend developers to build APIs that easily connect to systems on-prem or in the cloud.

It supports all workloads, applications, languages, open source tools, OS platforms and data types. And its container architecture lets you lift and shift apps with no changes between private, public and hybrid clouds, as well as between the cloud and your on-prem infrastructure. Your dev staff can spin up and tear down development environments in minutes – not days or weeks like they do now. The result? Fast, efficient dev/ops that save you money, make you more productive and reduce your development backlog.

Here’s an overview of the Oracle App Development Platform’s key benefits:

  • Improve time to market and competitive edge with spin up of dev/test environments in minutes.
  • Higher developer productivity with automation for repetitive tasks.
  • Same code base, whether on-premises or in the cloud.
  • Work with modern, cutting-edge technology that enhances your developers’ skills and attracts new talent.
  • Scale up cloud environments to meet changing needs without upfront infrastructure investments.
  • Flexibility to deploy projects to PaaS, multiple cloud providers, IaaS compute shapes, operating.
  • Systems, programming frameworks/languages.
  • Visual tooling and integrated solutions that enable even business users to develop apps.
  • Built-in DevOps capabilities (CI/CD) improve code quality and productivity.

With the Oracle App Dev Platform, development is easy, fast and flexible, allowing for efficient workflows between operations.

As a certified Oracle Partner, we can help you choose the right Oracle App Dev solutions and services for your business needs.

Oracle SCM Cloud

Supply Chain Management (SCM) Cloud

Gartner Predicts 2018: Future of Supply Chain Operations paints a picture of a world where technology innovation — from artificial intelligence to Blockchain — is intertwined with supply chain management (SCM) strategy and operations.  This means SCM is on its way to becoming technology-centric as opposed to simply technology-enabled.

Oracle Supply Chain Management Cloud (SCM) is the only supply chain management solution that lets businesses build tomorrow’s digital supply chain, today. Oracle SCM Cloud manages the complex and demand-driven marketplace of the future with a digital thread of end-to-end business technology that takes companies beyond traditional supply chain operations and into integrated business planning.

“There is no doubt that deploying innovative technology can improve efficiency and customer service, and can help raise maturity and transform supply chains. For example, 90% of companies operating at stages four or five maturity levels outperform their peers, and many are considered industry leaders.”

– C. Dwight Klappich
Research Vice President, Gartner
