NEW YORK, Feb. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Deloitte announced today that it has been named the first Global Cloud Elite partner in the new Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) Cloud Program. The global distinction means that the designation applies to the local market activities of all Deloitte member firms ("Deloitte"). In order to qualify for Global Cloud Elite status, OPN partners must have demonstrated full investment in the depth and breadth of Oracle Cloud solutions as well as a dedication to delivering them to joint customers.
"We've been steadily gaining momentum in the Oracle Cloud Marketplace since its inception, receiving a number of recognitions along the way, such as being named the Cloud Transformation Global Partner of the Year in the 2015 Oracle Excellence Awards," observed Jeffrey Davis, Deloitte U.S. principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP, and global Oracle leader. "But, the OPN Global Cloud Elite designation is a crowning achievement, since it recognizes Deloitte's ongoing investments in cloud training and tools as well as our commitment to building cloud-focused practices around the world. After all, wherever Deloitte clients operate, the cloud market is fast becoming a place where they need to act with conviction if they are to realize business value in the future."
"Deloitte's designation in our new OPN Cloud Program recognizes their global capabilities and their substantial investments in helping our joint customers navigate their transitions to the cloud," commented Shawn Price, senior vice president, Oracle Cloud. "The OPN Cloud Program will equip Deloitte even further to assist Oracle customers in doing what they must do to remain competitive: move swiftly to more modern business models enabled by a portfolio of SaaS, PaaS and IaaS technologies."
As used in this press release, "Deloitte" refers only to the DTTL member firms.
