Cintra customer wins Oracle Cloud Adoption award

18th March 2019

London, 18th March 2019: Enterprise ecommerce expert Maginus, which last year began its journey to the Oracle Cloud, has seen its Cloud Director Simon Dunleavy win a coveted Oracle Cloud Adoption award.

This recognizes the rapid progress Maginus has made in transitioning its business into the cloud, a process that has been architected and guided by Cintra, the reigning Oracle UK Cloud Infrastructure Partner of the Year.

Cloud transformation

As a result of its cloud transformation, Maginus now offers its popular Maginus OMS solution from the Oracle Cloud, using architecture designs provided by Cintra. Among many benefits this has unleashed, it means Maginus can onboard customers 50% faster, thereby making its offering more attractive to prospective customers.

Dunleavy commented: “We’re absolutely delighted to be publicly recognized by Oracle in this way. To think we started this process less than a year ago, the speed of change has been remarkable.

“Working with Cintra has unquestionably been the catalyst for this rapid shift from private infrastructure to the cloud. Their commercial expertise enabled us to free up the funds to invest in this cloud innovation work. Following that, their cloud architecture expertise and support gave us the confidence that we could meet the service levels expected by our customers, using the Oracle Cloud.

“There’s no way we would have been in contention for this award if we’d been doing this from scratch, without Cintra’s help, so I consider this a joint award for our two businesses.”

 Transitioning business 

Chris Eldridge-Hinmers, Independent Software Vendor Practice Lead at Cintra, added: “The success of the cloud transition at Maginus is a perfect demonstration of how quickly and effectively application providers can pivot their businesses away from traditional infrastructure.

“It’s been a real step-change for Maginus as a business, enabling it to respond faster to customer needs while improving its cashflow and increasing profitability.

“We’re delighted to see the success Maginus has achieved in a relatively short space of time be recognized publicly by Oracle.”
