Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) this week announced a partnership with digital workflow company ServiceNow, allowing customers to access Oracle Cloud resources through the ServiceNow portal.
With this integration, ServiceNow users will be able to manage their cloud strategies, including Oracle and other cloud provider resources, on a single dashboard, using ServiceNow’s IT Operations Management (ITOM) Visibility application.
According to Scott Twaddle, Vice President of Product, Industries and Partnerships at Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, “Enterprise customers are increasingly moving toward a multi-cloud environment and need an easy way to manage all of their cloud resources.
“Now customers can leverage their existing ServiceNow portal to view and manage all of their cloud resources, including Oracle.”
The companies claim that the integration of OCI on the ServiceNow platform will allow customers to assess and analyse their inventory and usage of cloud resources, to make better use of investments in cloud technologies.
According to Jeff Hausman, GM Operations Management (ITOM, ITAM, Security) & Data Foundations at ServiceNow, “With this integration, ServiceNow and Oracle are making it seamless for enterprises to unlock productivity for distributed teams to deliver products and services faster, access powerful business insights and create great experiences for employees, wherever they may be.”
Network Rail, which claims that it operates and develops 20 of the UK’s largest railway stations, is a ServiceNow customer already enjoying the benefits of this software integration.
According to Iain Sear, Database and Middleware Infrastructure Manager at Network Rail, “At Network Rail we utilise ServiceNow to keep track of our systems and assets, and we were very happy to see we can observe our Oracle Cloud Infrastructure deployment.”
