"Oracle Accelerate solutions are industry-focused providing organizations with tailored-fit functionalities," he says. "These solutions are also upgradeable allowing our users to scale without investing in entirely new applications."
The solutions are implemented by Oracle's qualified partner or Oracle Consulting to ensure that systems will be up and running quickly and properly. To date, Pai says Oracle Accelerate solutions are available across a variety of industries including aerospace and defense, automotive, consumer products, engineering and construction, financial services, high-technology, industrial manufacturing, life sciences, media and entertainment, natural resources, oil and gas, professional services, public sector, retail, travel and transportation and utilities.
Pai adds the solutions are also easy to own since part of the Oracle Accelerate initiative is the Oracle Business Accelerators (OBA) -- known as the rapid implementation tools provided to Oracle partners.
"OBAs enable customers achieve more quickly the benefit of using Oracle applications than other conventional offerings," Pai claims.
According to Pai, one key differentiator of Oracle's strategy is that its midsize solutions are based on standard Oracle products and is not a separate product line. Partners can create Oracle Accelerate solutions leveraging all of Oracle's applications including the Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft Enterprise, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, Siebel and Agile, among others.
