Redwood Shores, Calif.—Jul 8, 2020
Oracle today announced that Nomura Research Institute (NRI) has selected Oracle Dedicated Region [email protected] to run its critical, high-volume business platform used in various industries, including financial, retail, and distribution. NRI will start by moving its SaaS applications for the financial industry, which are used by about 70 percent of the capital markets firms in Japan, from on-premises to an Oracle Dedicated Region [email protected] in its own datacenter. This will provide NRI with access to all of Oracle’s second-generation public cloud services while ensuring control and governance because the cloud services are in NRI’s own datacenter. During NRI and Oracle’s 30-year partnership, NRI has been an early adopter of Oracle technology and is now the first global customer to move to Oracle Dedicated Region [email protected]
“With Oracle Dedicated Region [email protected], we can use Oracle Exadata as a cloud service and achieve greater agility, such as seamless expansion, while maintaining high availability at the same level as on-premises,” said Tomoshiro Takemoto, Senior Corporate Managing Director, NRI. “Built in our own datacenter, it enables us to not only provide SOC2 reports based on Japanese security standards in financial industries, but it also allows us to access broader cloud services and tools provided by Oracle and further increase our business value for our customers. With Oracle’s Dedicated Region, we can significantly reduce our on-premises costs and invest more in our digital transformation.”
“Oracle is excited to extend our strategic relationship with NRI to modernize and support the financial services market in Japan and globally,” said Clay Magouyrk, executive vice president of engineering, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. “Only Oracle Cloud enables customers to utilize our full-featured cloud services anywhere, whether it’s our global public cloud region portfolio or the new dedicated regions for customers with data sovereignty, latency, regulatory, security and compliance requirements. With the differentiated model of our Dedicated Region, NRI will be able to modernize and truly deliver a first-class, cloud-native experience to their customers while meeting all of their requirements.”
