Oracle has renewed a strategic agreement with US telecommunications provider, AT&T, that will help give new capacity and capabilities for the company’s database and application workloads running in Oracle Cloud.
The new five-year deal will build on AT&T’s use of Oracle Fusion Cloud Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Oracle Fusion Cloud Customer Experience (CX), and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), with Oracle Cloud ERP enabling AT&T to eliminate manual processes as part of the company’s ongoing financial and supply chain transformation.
The agreement will also provide AT&T with access to Oracle’s portfolio to expand its use of Oracle Cloud CX – currently used by the company to engage customers with personalized content to help improve their overall experience – whilst OCI services will support AT&T’s IT modernization and data center consolidation.
Jonathan Tikochinsky, executive vice president, strategic clients group at Oracle, said: “AT&T is continually reinventing itself to better connect people and businesses, and we’re proud to extend our partnership to support that connectivity. By using Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and Oracle Fusion Applications, AT&T is able to continue scaling globally and adapting to the evolving telecommunications market.”
Jon Summers, senior vice president of information technology at AT&T, said: “AT&T’s cloud transition is a critical initiative for our business. We’ve worked closely with Oracle on some of our toughest technology challenges over the years, and we’re excited to renew this collaboration for another five years.”
