Xerox Opts Oracle’s Cloud to Launch New Businesses

The Senior Vice-President and Chief Technology Officer at Xerox, Naresh Shanker, said, “Our vision is to launch breakaway businesses powered by breakthrough technologies as quickly as possible so that we can work to solve these problems facing our planet and society. In order to do that, we needed a unified cloud platform across the entire business.”

Jonathan Tikochinsky, the Executive Vice-President, Strategic Clients Group, Oracle, said, “For more than a century, Xerox has been at the forefront of business technology innovation. We’re proud to partner with the company as it applies that same dedication and expertise to solving pressing global issues.”
