Uber Technologies and Oracle form cloud partnership

Uber Technologies and Oracle have announced a seven year partnership, to accelerate Uber’s cloud deployment, digital transformation and service innovation

Oracle and Uber Technologies have announced the formation of a new seven year strategic cloud partnership. 

The two giants will work together to deploy Oracle’s leading cloud technologies, and so accelerate Uber’s digital transformation, while also helping it to deliver new products to market.

Uber’s cloud-enabled growth plans 

By migrating some of the company’s most critical workloads to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, Uber will be able to quickly and strategically modernise its infrastructure, while also laying the necessary foundations for increased profitability.

“Uber is revolutionising the way people, products, and services move across continents and through cities,” commented Dara Khosrowshahi, CEO of Uber. 

“To deliver on that promise for customers while building value for shareholders, we needed a cloud provider that will help us maximise innovation while reducing our overall infrastructure costs. Oracle provides an ideal combination of price, performance, flexibility, and security to help us deliver incredible customer service, build new products, and increase profitability.”

“Uber is expanding into a ‘go anywhere, get anything’ platform, and the company needed a cloud partner that shares a relentless focus on innovation,” added Safra Catz, CEO of Oracle. 

“This landmark competitive win for OCI is further validation of the momentum and acceleration we are experiencing in the market. Enterprises, governments, and startups around the world are recognising the differentiation of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and experiencing our performance, security, and economic benefits versus other hyperscalers.”

In addition to the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure agreement, the strategic partnership also includes a number of other areas of collaboration for the two companies. 

Firstly, Oracle will become a global Uber for Business client, selecting Uber as a preferred rideshare for its employees as they work across the globe. 

Secondly, Uber and Oracle will also continue co-innovating on additional retail and delivery solutions, in a collaboration that will naturally evolve from the cloud partnership. This will include a number of key solutions, such as consumer experiences with last-mile logistics.
