Automotive Oracle Cloud Infrastructure


The client is a Japanese multinational automaker in Fuchu, Hiroshima. They engage in Sky Active technology for the newest generation of automakers. Their retail revenues advanced 6% to 922.6 billion yen ($8.37 billion) in January-March.


Before implementing SoftClouds solutions, the client encountered higher cost management for hardware to manage and maintain the server infrastructure. They had VPN connections tunneling-related issues while integrating between different on-prem apps and the cloud environment. There was a challenge when integrating systems for cross-origin/global authentication systems. Changing data centers from North America to Japan caused latency issues for international users. The federation was different for each market and often had issues.


SoftClouds provided a comprehensive 360-degree solution that was innovative and utilized a variety of platforms, including Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). We engaged in the design, architecture, and implementation of better business processes, such as:

  • Enabled global expansion to other markets without hardware or support dependency
  • Provided security using SSO/federation authentication for each market
  • Integration with various sub-systems from vendors & business markets
  • Switched over from on-premise to cloud with minimal outage
  • Migrated 28 million files (5 TB data to cloud)


SoftClouds was able to efficiently reorganize and bring the client’s processes up to date as an outcome of the project’s success. As a result, the client obtained these benefits:

  • Reduced cost of operations
  • Single platform for multiple needs of different business
  • Easier to maintain; the system is cloud-based & doesn’t require special access
  • The previous single system has expanded to all markets


“The client’s migration from on-premise to OCI was a huge advantage for a global solution to expand based on business demand. The OCI manages the platform’s security – better than an on-premise system. SoftClouds OCI architects ensured the integrations were secured and improved the search functionality for technicians and aftermarket users.”
