National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Resilience (NIED) leads global disaster research innovation to help build a safer world. Through the support of Oracle Cloud, President Haruo Hayashi shares how NIED keeps valuable data secure to act fast and support a safer future.
"Previously, office workers who were blind required the oversight of a sighted employee to be successful in their roles. The accessibility of Oracle Cloud Applications has enabled greater independence and new job opportunities."
The Oracle Cloud offers a complete suite of integrated applications for Sales, Service, Marketing, Human Resources, Finance, Supply Chain and Manufacturing, plus Highly Automated and Secure Generation 2 Infrastructure featuring the Oracle Autonomous Database. It's a bit of a complicated concept so let's use an analogy that we can all understand - pizza.
If your pizza is your data, then the oven is your Cloud Infrastructure. It's a physical location where your data is stored. It's what makes the whole process work! For us, these storage locations are called data centers. Hundreds of these data centers around the world store the computing power for Oracle Cloud, securing and analyzing data for 430,000 customers.
Your pizza toppings are Cloud Applications. There are different toppings for different people – your roommate might prefer sausage on his pizza, while you prefer pepperoni. Like toppings, our applications are used by different people to match their unique needs and business roles -- it's simple really. For example, our Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) applications run everything to do with company resources, like finances, procurement, and budgeting. And our Human Capital Management (HCM) applications run a business’ HR functions, like recruiting, hiring, and compensation.
Whether they’re fellow interns, full-time employees, customers, or partners, Oracle has a truly global community. Our employees span across 150 countries and work with customers from all over the world! If you want to see the world, we can help!
