Panasonic Information Systems Co. Ltd. has selected Oracle Exadata Database Service on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) as the cloud database platform to support the internal systems used by all companies within the Panasonic Group. This entails migrating more than 2,000 database environments from hundreds of internal systems to Oracle Exadata Database Service on OCI.

In the first phase of the project, Panasonic IS has successfully migrated 30 systems from on-premises to the cloud, resulting in a reduction of approximately 50% in database infrastructure costs. Panasonic Group is a global leader in developing innovative technologies and solutions for a wide-range of consumer electronic appliances. To sustain its competitive edge, the Panasonic Group is modernizing its on-premises IT environment and traditional business processes.

To achieve this, Panasonic is establishing an infrastructure called "Panasonic Transformation (PX) Best Hybrid Platform," which is leveraging multiple public clouds to adopt the most suitable cloud for each system. To consolidate a large number of databases in the public cloud, Panasonic IS chose Oracle Exadata Database Service on OCI for its exceptional performance, availability, and ability. As the major project milestone, Panasonic IS has successfully migrated one of the Panasonic Group's largest systems?the sales data analytics system, containing 30TB of data and used by 18,000 employees?to centrally manage its consumer electronics sales information in Japan.
