CSC Foundation Services for Oracle work together to assist clients in leveraging Oracle's integrated stack from applications-to-disk; including storage, servers, virtualization software, databases, middleware, application and management software.

"CSC's Foundation Services, built on Oracle's platform, provide customers with accelerated development and deployment of SaaS and cloud based business applications with increased agility and reduced IT costs." "CSC's Foundation Services, built on Oracle's platform, provide customers with accelerated development and deployment of SaaS and cloud based business applications with increased agility and reduced IT costs," said Andy Bailey, senior vice president, Worldwide System Integrator Alliances, Oracle.

CSC's Foundation Services for Oracle are designed to guide clients on their journey to the cloud -- from selecting and transforming applications to establishing their own private cloud environment -- in a way that ensures their business goals are achieved. These services leverage CSC's Business First Approach, which evaluates enterprise business processes and identifies the ideal workloads that will generate the greatest ROI from cloud services. A key feature of this offering is the development of a demonstrable reference architecture that provisions Oracle applications, middleware and infrastructure through virtual instances in minutes. This reference architecture and the accompanying services have been successfully used to guide customers in establishing their own private cloud environments.

CSC Foundation Services for Oracle include:

Plan & Design Services -- Services to support decision-making around the application of cloud services in the customer's business. These range from defining business process requirements to optimize business value to designing cloud architecture that ensures information security and compliance.

Implementation and Integration Services -- Services to help turn cloud strategy into a reality. These services cover launching chosen cloud technologies, configuring them to meet client-specific business needs, and setting them up for integrated management and reporting, even across multiple clouds. CSC enables private cloud solutions on the client's premise or on CSC premises.

Deliver and Manage Services -- CSC manages private, public or hybrid cloud infrastructures and helps the client select and implement the right cloud to meet business requirements. This includes defining and refining all the details of standard service offerings, shared or dedicated services, prescriptive architectures, service level agreements, security requirements and any customized solutions.
