India gains higher education Oracle Cloud

22/09/2015 by


Many experts believe India’s economy is growing so fast that it will become the world’s third largest by 2020. The higher education system in the nation is noting a huge transformation, particularly due to over half the country’s population being under 25 years old; however, whereas developed countries have a skilled workforce percentage of between 60% and 90%, just 5% of the 20- to 25-year-olds in India have any formal vocational skills. As a result there is a pressing need to overhaul the higher education system and move the learning process online so that youngsters can access it.

This is where Oracle comes in, with the enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution provider having introduced three Cloud Platform Services that institutes of higher education can use to help digitalise the learning system. Oracle Database Cloud Service, Oracle Document Cloud Service and Oracle Java Cloud Service have been designed to meet India’s need to produce a skilled and cloud-ready workforce. The solutions will allow students to collaborate regardless of where they are based and student startups will be facilitated as a result of the secure, easy and agile environment.

Oracle India’s chief technology officer and vice-president of sales consulting, Mitesh Agarwal, explained: “Today’s higher education institutions across the private and public sectors face unique challenges, one of which includes devising appropriate curriculum to help develop an industry ready workforce. The millennial generation is far advanced in their IT consumption and work collaboratively with their teachers and fellow students.”

Oracle Database Cloud Services will allow students to access operations and features of the solution without needing to manage the underlying infrastructure. Users will be able to conduct development operations and database management, as well as gaining access to a simplified tools suite including software upgrades and backup and recovery commands. Oracle Document Cloud Services will promote file sharing between students and staff and enable projects to be passed between group members, while Oracle Java Cloud Service will allow individuals to manage, build and deploy Java applications, which is a popular programming language with developers.

Speaking about the company's latest move in India, Mr Agarwal said: “Having served some of the globally renowned universities, Oracle wants to ensure that universities in India have access to the most modern technologies. We want to enable those universities and their students to be better prepared for tomorrow. We believe cloud has a major role to play here.”
