The FINANCIAL — Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. and Oracle are now making it easier for enterprises to embrace today’s modern work setting and take their business to the cloud. The two innovation leaders are working together to give developers and solution providers the advanced tools to create and deliver mobile apps and enterprise solutions. The collaborative effort lets professionals gain a new level of mobile functionality for ultimate engagement and productivity.
Samsung and Oracle are working closely with select systems integrators to help customers across all industries leverage their existing legacy systems and take advantage of the benefits of mobile and cloud, modernizing their IT infrastructure, empowering users and realizing greater cost efficiencies. The companies are also working together on an expanded set of Apache Cordova plug-ins and code samples to help customers modernize their enterprise applications with rich mobile user experiences. This brings together the industry-leading strength of each company – Oracle’s exceptional enterprise software and Mobile Cloud solutions and Samsung’s elite device features, according to Samsung.
“In today’s mobile environment, it is critical that businesses deploy a mobile-first strategy to maintain success and accomplish growth,” said Young Kim, Vice President, Enterprise Business Team at Samsung Electronics. “Samsung and Oracle are not only helping customers through mobility but also enabling developers and solution providers to create next generation mobile applications and services that are driving a new frontier of productivity.”
“With the combination of Oracle Mobile Cloud Service and Samsung’s industry-defining device capabilities, we are continuing to advance and simplify enterprise mobility, bringing enterprises to a new level of performance,” said Sri Ramanathan, Group Vice President, Oracle.
Delivering Mobile Solutions
Auraplayer, a Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) and Samsung Enterprise Alliance partner, has developed a number of solutions that mobilize Oracle Forms applications leveraging Samsung devices, Oracle Infrastructure offerings and Oracle Mobile Cloud Service. The collaboration has allowed for rapid development of solutions for customers like Jubilee Life Insurance that address critical business needs.
“Working with the support of Samsung and Oracle has helped to accelerate demonstration and implementation of full mobile solutions for our customers,” said Mia Urman, CEO, Auraplayer. “The unique additions that are found in Samsung hardware also helped us create differentiated end user experiences that can be built in a matter of weeks by using Oracle Mobile Cloud Service with AuraPlayer’s Oracle Forms REST API’s.”
Samsung and Oracle have worked with a number of systems integrators to foster creation of innovative mobile and Internet of Things enterprise solutions. A number of these will be showcased at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, such as:
