Deloitte is first OPN member to receive top cloud designation

TORONTO, 17 February 2016 – Deloitte announced today that it has been named the first Global Cloud Elite partner in the new Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) Cloud Program.

In order to qualify for Global Cloud Elite status, OPN partners must have demonstrated full investment in the depth and breadth of Oracle Cloud solutions as well as a dedication to delivering them to joint customers.

“We’re proud of this distinction, because it serves as the capstone to a series of recognitions we’ve received in the Oracle Cloud Marketplace since its inception. The OPN Global Cloud Elite designation recognizes our ongoing investments in cloud training and tools, and speaks to the career opportunities for our people,” said Brian McKenna, Partner, and Canadian Oracle leader for Deloitte. “What’s more, as a Global Cloud Elite partner, our commitment to building cloud-focused practices around the world is honoured. Our clients both here in Canada and worldwide see the value in the cloud market, and we stand with them driving cloud solutions to their business challenges.”

“Deloitte’s designation in our new OPN Cloud Program recognizes their global capabilities and their substantial investments in helping our joint customers navigate their transitions to the cloud,” commented Shawn Price, senior vice president, Oracle Cloud. “The OPN Cloud Program will equip Deloitte even further to assist Oracle customers in doing what they must do to remain competitive: move swiftly to more modern business models enabled by a portfolio of SaaS, PaaS and IaaS technologies.”
