Samsung, Oracle Link To Upgrade The Enterprise


Enterprise technology has often been the result of two tech conglomerates forging ties to develop business solutions. Take Apple and IBM, for instance; the two struck a collaboration last year to develop enterprise-specific mobile apps and solutions for Big Data. Similarly, Google and Dell also made an alliance to develop enterprise-level devices.

Now, a new enterprise-tech couple is going public. On Friday (Feb. 19), reports revealed that Samsung and Oracle are working together to develop mobile apps for the conglomerate.

“In today’s mobile environment, it is critical that businesses deploy a mobile-first strategy to maintain success and accomplish growth,” said Samsung Electronics Vice President of Enterprise Business Young Kim in a statement. “Samsung and Oracle are not only helping customers through mobility but also enabling developers and solution providers to create next-generation mobile applications and services that are driving a new frontier of productivity.”

Samsung and Oracle will focus on helping corporate clients leverage their existing technological systems and shift into the cloud. They will also target enterprise adoption of mobile solutions and promote IT infrastructure upgrades within corporations.

Specifically, their collaboration will expand an existing set of plugins and code samples to help mobile developers enhance their own enterprise apps.

In another statement, Oracle Group Vice President Sri Ramanathan said their partnership combines Oracle’s enterprise software and Mobile Cloud services with Samsung’s strength in devices — a way to develop cloud-based solutions that operate on Samsung tools.

“With the combination of Oracle Mobile Cloud Service and Samsung’s industry-defining device capabilities, we are continuing to advance and simplify enterprise mobility, bringing enterprises to a new level of performance,” Ramanathan said.
