Redwood Shores, Calif. – March 22, 2011

News Facts

  • Oracle today announced that Colt Technology Services has gone live with Oracle’s Rapid Offer Design and Order Delivery (RODOD) solution, enabling it to extend the cloud-based services already on offer to enterprises through its Infrastructure-as-a-Service solutions.

    enterprise customers in a matter of hours rather than weeks.

  • “Enterprises throughout Europe face very similar challenges. They need to lower operational costs, while improving their overall efficiency. With our fibre network and 19 data centers, we knew that we had the infrastructure in place to offer substantial value to enterprises, helping them manage and scale their resources. But designing, launching and managing cloud services is complex and fraught with integration issues that can add weeks to the introduction of a new service. However, with Oracle’s RODOD solution, we are able to launch compelling services in hours, with the right technology in place to support our business as it continues to evolve,” said Mark Leonard, EVP, Infrastructure Services Unit, Colt Technology Services.
  • “Colt Technology Services is a great example of a company evolving its business to meet changes in market demand. As enterprises worldwide continue to seek smarter ways to manage their infrastructure, Colt is well-positioned to capitalise on this demand by offering a broader selection of cloud services earlier than any of its competitors. We look forward to working with Colt Technology Services in the years ahead to ensure its cloud services continue to exceed customer expectations,” said Dan Ford, vice president of product marketing, Oracle Communications.
