Maginus begins its journey to the Oracle Cloud with Cintra

13th August 2018

London, 13th August 2018: Maginus, the omnichannel solutions company, is to begin its journey to the Oracle Cloud, following the opening of Oracle’s new Cloud Region in the United Kingdom.

The move will help Maginus reduce its legacy infrastructure costs, while also paving the way for it to offer new products and services to its customers.

Working with Cintra, Oracle’s UK Cloud Infrastructure Partner of the Year for 2018, Maginus will begin the process by moving a number of existing customer environments to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). If the initial pilots are a success, more workloads are planned to follow.

Underpinned by new Oracle commercial architecture
The cloud transformation has been made possible by a new commercial model that Cintra has put in place between Maginus and Oracle. The new model, which means Maginus only pays for the services it uses, has freed up considerable funds for it to reinvest in other Oracle technology, including the cloud.

Simon Dunleavy, Cloud Director at Maginus, said: “The Oracle Cloud is something we’ve been considering for some time, but we needed to make sure we did it the right way. This includes fully securing our data, keeping it within the UK, and ensuring performance would be at the level our customers expect.

“With the launch of the new-generation Oracle Cloud Infrastructure in the UK, a new pricing model and Cintra on-hand to assist us, we now have access to the right technology, right commercial model and right expertise to start the journey to cloud.”

Boosting ISV growth and profits
Chris Eldridge-Hinmers, ISV Practice Lead at Cintra, added: “For independent software vendors, such as Maginus, moving to the cloud can free up the budget required to invest in innovation that ultimately accelerates growth and boosts profits.

“Oracle’s cloud is now mature and ready to be used for these enterprise-scale workloads – and to take advantage of it, ISVs need the blend of commercial and technical expertise that Cintra is providing to Maginus.”
