Sirius’s consultants understand that Oracle has a significant inventory of solutions that are integrated to form a cohesive go-to-market strategy. Our experience with these solutions has demonstrated that not all solutions are right for every environment, nor is there a single best configuration to maximize return on investment in all environments.
Our architecture and design services experts will work with you to examine your specific initiatives and determine how to best customize the implementation of Oracle solutions to your unique environment.
- Capacity Planning Assessment
- Database Health Check
- Application Architecture and workload placement
The Sirius team has adopted Oracle’s Engineered Systems as a core competency and demonstrated this commitment by obtaining our Exadata Specialization.
Our consultants come from organizations where Exadata, Oracle Database Appliance, Private Cloud Appliance or Cloud@Customer were essential to their business. We have leveraged this expertise to build out services that provide you with greater value from your investment in Oracle Engineered Systems.
