We proactively manage efficient Cloud updates

A core component of the engage Business Support service is the end-to-end co-ordination and advice around the Oracle Cloud Update process. In the Cloud world, software upgrades are much more frequent than they were with on-premise software.  Certus has devised the UpdateAware  service as a cornerstone to the engage Business Support offering.

UpdateAware includes regular knowledge transfer, advice & guidance; Cloud Update incident analysis, workaround & resolution plus proactive environment management steps and testing.

The key benefits of our UpdateAware service are as follows:

  • Certus will deliver the same update for many customers, which makes us more knowledgeable and experienced than any one customer.
  • Certus is often aware of potential issues (and the fixes) before you start, reducing the risk and duration of the upgrade.
  • Certus can add value to client’s regression test scripts and can execute the scripts on the customer’s behalf
  • Certus will become very knowledgeable of your system and your business challenges enabling us to highlight new features that will give direct benefit to your business.

In short, we concentrate on your update so you can concentrate on your business.
