Rapid4Cloud is a suite of SaaS services designed for use with Oracle Cloud Applications. They reduce the time, cost and risk to implement Oracle and also the cost of ownership once you are live.

Rapid4Cloud is used by Oracle customers and partners. Customers use it during implementations and to run and maintain their system. Partners use it in their implementations and in their Managed Services operations.

Rapid4Cloud benefits the business from day 1 of the implementation right through to running and maintaining the system. Here are some specifics:

Rapid4Cloud quite simply gets things done quicker, and more accurately, than a human can. Our automation can do in a single day what it takes humans weeks to achieve. Don't take our word for it however - here's a customers perspective (Prodensa video)

It's a simple equation - less time means less cost. You may wish bank the savings, or to re-deploy those funds into other critical project areas like change management and data quality to further de-risk your project.

There is a lot of very complex keyboard work involved in configuring Oracle Cloud Applications. Our automation performs this work tirelessly and, more importantly, error free. It's the consultants paradox, and perhaps a bit of human nature - we always find the time and money to fix mistakes, but not do it right first time.

Knowing that tasks will be performed quickly, predictably and error free makes project planning and contingency planning much easier. Using Rapid4Cloud means you are less exposed to staff fluctuations and other environmental impacts, and you can bank the time you might spend on mundane and lengthy configuration activity and spend it on other high-risk project areas such as data quality, user adoption and change management.

From global pandemics to key staff changes, organisations are always at risk of losing knowledge as people are no longer available. Rapid4Cloud let's you document and track changes in your solution and stops this knowledge disappearing from the business as people leave the business. This is equally true for your implementation partner, who will eventually leave the site - you want to be sure all the goodness they put into the solution is understood and available.


Whether you are starting out with a brand new empty Oracle Cloud instance, or are part way through your implementation, or need to move your configuration from one instance to another, there is a lot of manual keying of data required to create configurations during an implementation. Rapid4Cloud can automate this to is get done quicker and more accurately than by humans.

Documentation is a tedious and painstaking task during implementation, but is an essential part of any project. Rapid4Cloud automates this entirely and it can be produced on-demand.

Whether it's keying data into the system, or documenting what's in there, human error is to be expected. Rapid4Cloud eliminates that entirely and ensures you have the highest quality data input and reporting possible.
