SRS2 Inc. announced a new strategic partnership with SunGard Availability Services that will extend the firm’s Dynamic Upgrade Lab capabilities to include full cloud deployment of Oracle E-Business Suite R12.

SRS2 Inc., a global IT business support firm specializing in Oracle Application life-cycle services, today announced a new strategic partnership with SunGard Availability Services that will extend the firm’s Dynamic Upgrade Lab capabilities to include full cloud deployment of Oracle E-Business Suite R12.

Currently, over half of Oracle E-Business Suite 11i users in North America have not begun the upgrade process to R12, despite the fact that Oracle-imposed deadlines will severely limit support after November 2013. This compelling event presents the opportunity for enterprises to take advantage of the significant time and cost savings by utilizing SRS2’s Dynamic Upgrade Lab in concert with SunGard’s Hosted Private Cloud Services, versus making additional hardware investments in their own data centers. Through this collaboration, customers can leverage the power of comprehensive managed services and the on-demand resource capacity of the cloud.

“Aligning ourselves with SunGard, an industry leader in high availability solutions, allows us to evolve our business model to address the needs of new and existing EBS customers who decide to leverage E-Business Suite R12 and the cloud,” said Larry Chen, president and CEO of SRS2. “As an end-to-end Oracle applications service provider, this is a logical extension of our Dynamic Upgrade Lab and managed services capabilities and fits seamlessly into the structure of both organizations. We already see the impact of the demand among enterprises beginning the upgrade assessment process as 11i nears de-support. Our partnership with SunGard Availability Services will benefit customers by reducing upgrade cycle times, while delivering cost predictability.”

As a trusted Oracle Certified Partner for more than a decade, SRS2 is credited with developing an industry-first “Dynamic Upgrade” model for Oracle EBS upgrades. This innovative model utilizes a unique combination of operational approach, a proprietary SmartService Platform and process automation that streamlines and future-proofs our customers’ investment in their ERP applications.

SunGard’s Hosted Private Cloud Services for Oracle EBS provides superior management, administration, monitoring, reporting and support of Oracle EBS and Oracle databases. Powered by a multi-site, virtualized Oracle Red Stack® compute and storage platform, SunGard Availability Services provides a range of technical support options that allow customers to tailor both system capacity and management service levels. When packaged with SRS2 services, it provides Oracle customers with a compelling services model that can be readily adapted to evolving needs.

“Our partnership with SRS2 allows us to provide a secure, stable and enterprise-grade hosted private cloud platform for clients. SRS2 provides key integration and migration services customers need in conjunction with our Hosted Private Cloud Services for Oracle EBS,” stated Wade Alt, vice president of business operations and enterprise solutions, SunGard Availability Services.

Both companies will be in attendance at COLLABORATE 13: Technology and Applications Forum for the Oracle Community, in Denver, Colo. April 7-11. They invite those planning an upgrade to Oracle E-Business Suite R12 to learn more about this new partnership and the range of collaborative services.
