Enterprises large and small looking to build out Shared Services are drawn by the advantages of cloud computing -- pay-for-use, self-service and elastic scalability. However security, quality of service, integration, compliance, and long-term costs of public clouds remain a concern. Private clouds can provide many of the advantages of public clouds while mitigating many of the concerns.

This webinar is for LOB and IT executives, to explore "cloud" software delivery alternatives that can be deployed to help transform their enterprise. Included in this webinar is a case study of Oracle’s own success in delivering Shared Services using a hosted private cloud.
