Deloitte Becomes Value Added Reseller for Oracle
Relationship broadens in Australia
31 October 2014: Deloitte recently announced that it has broadened its relationship with Oracle by signing a value-added reseller agreement (VAR) which will permit Deloitte Australia to be a reseller of the Oracle product suite across its applications and middleware suite of products. As a result, Deloitte will be able to offer its clients technology and consulting offerings which brings the most innovative and trusted web platform together.
Craig Smith, Deloitte’s National Practice Leader for Oracle said, “The Oracle Partner Network (OPN) reseller program offers an unparalleled product portfolio and enables Deloitte to resell Oracle offerings directly to clients.
“Oracle offers Deloitte and its other partners an unprecedented ability to participate in delivering complete, open, and integrated business software and hardware solutions.
“This VAR arrangement was stimulated by the digital disruption we are seeing in the marketplace as web-based productivity, cloud- based services and collaboration solutions are being customised to clients’ specific needs in order to accelerate their ability to focus on serving their customers and not solely on IT,” said Mr Smith.
“The expanded relationship between Oracle and Deloitte provides value to customers as we are seeing a trend in the marketplace where clients are looking for creative approaches to lowering the cost of technology and focusing on executing a strategic transformation of their business, through the implementation of Oracle solutions,” added Mr Smith. “The reseller agreement with Oracle will enable customers to more quickly and easily deploy business solutions that deliver value through leveraging existing Oracle investments or the new cloud and Fusion product suites.”
“As a Diamond level member in the OPN program, Deloitte has already invested significantly in delivering both broad and deep levels of expertise across core Oracle technologies. By extending Deloitte’s offerings of Oracle technology and services in Australia, through this new reseller status, Deloitte can be better placed to leverage our full solution set to ensure that end users are maximising their investment in their Oracle solutions,” said Patricia Nance, Vice President, Alliances & Channels, Australia & New Zealand.
