Microsoft, Oracle Form Cloud Interoperability Partnership

Microsoft and Oracle have teamed up to enable clients to migrate and operate enterprise workloads across their cloud platforms.

Organizations can link Microsoft Azure services such as artificial intelligence and analytics to Oracle Autonomous Database and other Oracle Cloud services through the cloud interoperability partnership, the companies said Wednesday.

“With Oracle's enterprise expertise, this alliance is a natural choice for us as we help our joint customers accelerate the migration of enterprise applications and databases to the public cloud,“ said Scott Guthrie, executive vice president of cloud and AI division at Microsoft.

Under the partnership, the companies will help customers manage resources across Oracle Cloud and Azure through a unified identity and access management feature, extend on-premises data infrastructure to both cloud platforms and field packaged Oracle apps and custom apps such as E-Business Suite and JD Edwards EnterpriseOne on Azure.
