Calix Utilizes Oracle Cloud Platform to Drive Innovation

By CIOReview | Wednesday, February 17, 2016

REDWOOD SHORES, CA: Calix, a top provider of communication equipments, is deploying Oracle Cloud Platform to speed up the innovation process to render new advanced services in web content management and customer portals for its world class service providing customers, a press release from Marketwired stated.

Operating in a competitive global market, Calix needs to increase its speed and agility by understanding its highly varied technology infrastructure, to successfully compete against companies twice its size. Serving over 100 million subscriber lines, Calix facilitates the global service providers to render high-end broadband services and value to their end-customers. To help support these customers, Calix requires a technology overhaul that will enable it to maximize productivity, reduce costs and enhance innovation.

Ravi Gade, Senior Director, IT Applications, Calix says, “The Oracle Integration Cloud Service enabled us to consolidate multiple integration tools into a single platform very quickly.” “In a company that is continually innovating, IT must stay agile and be able to respond quickly to evolving business needs. The Oracle Integration Cloud Service enables us to support continual innovation, deploy rapid integrations, and realize significant IT savings,” he adds.

With Oracle Integration Cloud Service, Calix has consolidated its integration tools such as Dell Boomi, SharePlex and Informatica into a single platform to foster IT and business performance. Calix then used the same Oracle service to smartly incorporate on-premises and cloud applications comprising of Salesforce and Oracle E-business Suite. The company was quickly able to build integrations across its important business systems through leveraging pre-built adaptors.

Oracle Integration Cloud Services provides simple, web-based, point-and-click user interface which enabled Calix to decrease its deployment time. For instance, Calix built 24 integrations within two weeks during the cloud-to-cloud application integration project on the customer portal based on Adobe Experience Manager and a Salesforce application. The same project took few months to complete before implementing Oracle Integration Cloud Service. Calix was also able to leverage its current Applications group to integrate the applications easily which enabled the integration developers to focus on other innovative tasks.

As a part of Oracle Cloud, Oracle Cloud Platform continues to show strong adoption, supporting more than 70 million users and more than 34 billion transactions per day. It runs on more than 50,000 devices and more than 800 petabytes of storage in 19 data centers across the globe.
