Oracle working in Partnership with Higher Education

Oracle and Higher Education

Oracle are extremely proud of the relationship we have with higher education institutions. And the role that we play, working with universities across the United Kingdom to modernise their technology and enhance their decision making.

Our customers are telling us that higher education is at a turning point. The core mission of the university has not changed. But the way in which the mission is delivered – whether through remote, online or in-person learning – is going through a rapid transformation.

During volatile times, universities need to reduce risks, prevent oversights and assure the delivery of their mission.

The Oracle Financial Cloud reduces the costs of supporting disparate systems. It supports real-time decision making through a single platform. And it promotes the flow of financial and other data across your schools, faculties and departments.

There has never been a more important time to clarify your goals, plan your strategy and prepare detailed budgets. But sometimes even the best plans need to bend to changing student preferences and government policy. So our world-class enterprise performance management tool helps customers to think differently about what they do and the value they create.

How we work with our customers

We partner with universities, providing financial and other business systems to improve outcomes and save money. So universities can focus on delivering world-class education, learning and research.

Oracle wants to use the platform we have, working with higher education institutions and the wider public sector, to mobilise the strength of our networks and the expertise of our people. Examples of this approach include: 

  • Oracle Academy – a global education programme seeking to promote knowledge, skills and innovation through free training and support resources and access to software and cloud infrastructure.
  • Oracle High Performance Computing – drawing on the expertise and heritage of the company, to other access and support to research institutions in need of HPC capabilities  
  • Oracle Cloud Innovation Accelerator Programme – connects Oracle and our industry partners with research institutions, supplemented by free cloud computing credits and technical guidance.
  • Oracle Global Start-up Programme – a joint initiative with the University of Bristol, offering an innovation hub providing mentoring, guidance and access to Cloud infrastructure and other technologies.

We are also keen to contribute to debates and promote a discussion on the business and operational challenges facing higher education. Recent higher education blogs focus on:
