Describe your company's current technology and solutions
For more than four decades, Oracle has delivered innovation upon which entire industries have been built. Oracle offers both on premise solutions as well as public, private, and hybrid cloud solutions. We hold Protected B cloud contracts with Shared Services Canada as well as with several provincial governments. Some of our main technology solutions are: Application Server, Databases, Database Management Tools, Data Warehouse, Big Data, Analytics, Data Science, Engineered Systems and Integrated Platforms, Middleware, Applications Development and Deployment, Business Software, Financial Management, Applications Platforms, Enterprise Performance Management, Human Capital and Talent Management, Inventory Management, Logistics, Lead Management/Marketing Automation, and Project and Portfolio Management.


Are you aware of any current government challenges or opportunities that would be addressed by using your technology solution? Or a future need you can identify?
Many of the government mission critical applications run on Oracle technologies. Our cloud solutions are built to run these enterprise grade applications and we are able to assist the government to quickly and easily move these solutions to the cloud. We offer a number of data security solutions that can assist the government to protect its information and systems from both insider as well as outsider threats.

As the COVID crisis continues, please describe specific opportunities where your technology might support Canadian needs / government needs
Many of our current customers already own Oracle solutions that can allow them to easily build and deploy applications to meet the needs of Canadians and others who they serve. As an example, Oracle has been actively engaged in the ongoing fight against COVID-19 and has used APEX as well as some of its other technologies to build a Clinical Trials System and a Therapeutic Learning System. This system was the result of a unique and important collaboration with the National Institute of Health, the Food and Drug Administration, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, and the Department of Health and Human Services. The system is currently available to every physician in the United States at covid19.oracle.com. We can offer the same types of solutions and opportunities for the Canadian government to quickly deploy solutions that will allow them to gather, analyze, and ultimately have better decision making capabilities using Canadian data.

Do you have any final reflections or comments?
Oracle is one of the largest technology companies in the world. We have a number of solutions that we can provide to assist the Canadian Government to better serve Canadians now as well as after this crisis. We welcome any opportunities to engage with our public sector partners to understand their requirements and to collaborate on solutions that can benefit all Canadians.
