SMEs across the region will gain access and support to additional Cloud solutions and resources for their digital transformation initiatives, with the opening of Oracle’s first Digital Hub in Southeast Asia on Sept 26.

 

The new KL-based facility, which houses a newly-hired digital team, is Oracle’s nod of commitment to better serve the SME market in Malaysia and 21 other countries in the Asia-Pacific.

 

The aim is to help SMEs, especially mid-size organisations, leverage on Oracle Cloud solutions to streamline operations, boost innovation and build a platform for growth. The hub complements Oracle’s broader Asia-Pacific digital sales and support functions in KL, which service the local market and the region. 

 

“The Cloud is democratising IT; you just need a web browser or a mobile phone app to take advantage of it,” says Oracle Japan and Asia-Pacific senior vice-president Francois Lançon.

 

“What’s more, it has incredible transformation potential for small businesses, enabling them to do things they have never been able to do before, at an affordable price, such as using technology to streamline business process, gain access to an easy-to-use platform for innovation and digitise their customer experience.

 

“We are simplifying the buying process to help these smaller organisations, as well as branch offices and line of business departments, digitally transform their business,” says Lancon.

 

Customers that want to buy entirely online can use the dedicated click-to-buy option. In addition to the simplified buying experience, Oracle’s Digital Hub offers a full suite of Cloud applications and infrastructure services, as both standalone services and as bundles. This will empower small businesses to select solutions that directly address their goals or issues.
