Data Modernization on the Oracle Cloud: Transformation and Intelligence at its Roots
Transitioning dataflows to the cloud is just the first step to truly attaining a data intelligent enterprise status. Traditional lift and shift migrations have proven to deliver stunted outcomes without advanced database management on the cloud: optimization, cleansing, extraction, duplication, rewriting and modifying databases and applications, replacement of legacy assets, integration of cloud-powered analytics tools, etc. More often than not, enterprises are opting for a complete overhaul of their data structures and databases on the cloud via seamless data pools or data lakes. Acting as a universal source for any data type, this allows businesses the flexibility to store, call, and deploy data at will across remote locations, private ecosystems, third-party solutions, end-points, and more. In addition, such a refined architecture makes deployment of cutting-edge analytics streamlined, thereby transforming enterprise workflows at its roots and laying the groundwork for a truly data-intelligent enterprise.

Key Talking Points
The Benefits: Why Move and Modernize Enterprise Databases on the Oracle Cloud?
Irrespective of enterprises deciding to go for a flexible IT ecosystem, continuing with legacy systems can pose a threat to your data. The lack of updates and maintenance can make it even riskier. Even at enterprises with full-fledged IT teams in place, system health checks are missed, which make systems outdated and more vulnerable.
To continue with legacy systems is a big fallacy and migration of databases to the Oracle cloud is just the first step. With Cloud4C’s end-to-end database managed services, modify and optimize existing databases and workloads to leverage the cloud’s in-built agility and scalability while reducing over-provisioning of storage, DB management resources. Replace underlying data structures, languages, platforms, APIs with modernized solutions natively deployed from cloud. Gain complete visibility of data workloads from a single source of truth and power to run cloud databases across any ecosystem, edge network, third-party environment with ease. Deploy cutting-edge analytics, visualization charts, dashboards to leverage the best out of your data and hence, maximizing overall ROI.
Legacy data assets come with a lot of challenges due to the compatibility issues and end-user preferences. They create a wide gap between meeting the customer demands and enterprise goals. Enterprises that continue to work with legacy systems often experience the challenge of coming up with solutions that can address simple demands but not add to work complexity.

Stages of Data Migration and Modernization on the Oracle Cloud
We perform entity mapping, where map source entity attributes are sourced to target entity attributes. We help identify any unmapped attributes which may result in data loss. Cloud4C develops a migration strategy and design which mentions the downtime required due to migration, required staging storage/ hardware, migration impact on target database size, and tracking updates to source during migration. We follow the proof of concepts as defined in the migration strategy document. We also help enterprises classify data of standards and analyse the ease of maintainability based on the analysis report.
As part of the pre-migration, Cloud4C checks on the data inconsistency that highlights the possible inconsistency of an entity against predefined standards. We also take care of the Data redundancy, data stability, data type, data length, data cleansing and more. With the pre-migration process, we keep track of the amount of redundant data present in legacy databases. Cloud4C performs data cleansing based on the findings of the inconsistency check and stability check.
Transform & Migrate
As part of transform and migrate, we perform the data transformation based on the transformation rules. Along with it, we also migrate the data from source to target. We help report and resolve the log and report errors during migration and log and report status of migration.
Continuous Migration and Modernization
As part of the continuous migration, we capture all the changes in the source system. We also propagate the changes to the target system. We help with the redesigning of the workloads from proprietary ETL (Infa, etc.) to native cloud/open source ETL (e.g., Spark/Lambda/Glue). We take care of moving warehouse layer storage to cloud, error-handling during migration, moving Data marts to new platform, reporting from new platform, On-board other LOBs and On-board Analytical use cases. We ensure that the changes are applied to the target system.
As part of the post migration process, we provide data reconciliation and assurance. We take care of advanced analytics, and build search capability and complete data & analytics on the new platform. Gain 24/7/365 support from our data modernization experts.

Oracle Security - Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What is the difference between data migration and data modernization?
Data migration implies shifting of an enterprise’s databases, workloads to the cloud.
Whereas, modernization implies modifications of those databases, creating developed structures to leverage the cloud best in addition to end-to-end managed services and analytics.
What is data migration?
Data Migration is a way to move data, from either different locations, formats or applications
Usually, enterprises go for data migration when they are introducing a new system or location for the data.
The key for data migration is related to either application migration or consolidation in which the legacy systems are modernized.
Nowadays, as part of the digital transformation journey, enterprises are opting for data migration to move their on-premises infrastructure and application to cloud-based storage.
What are the types of database migration offered by Cloud4C?
- Offline Migrations: RMAN backup/logical export is taken as per customer requirement. The backup will then be restored in the off-premise environment.
- Online Migrations: A robust DR is built in a specific region. Live data is shipped and cutover for database on-premise is planned, before switching services to OCI.
- Homogeneous Migrations: Migration completed using RMAN/export options to a homogeneous environment.
- Heterogeneous Migrations: Deployment via multiple approaches: SQL developer – CSV, Golden Gate
- Complex and Large Migrations: Estimates and deliverables to be identified prior to the migration. Suite of Oracle technologies to be incorporated as per requirement.
What are the OCI Migration Connectivity Options offered by Cloud4C?
FastConnect - Secure connection between the existing network and virtual cloud network (VCN) over a private physical network instead of the internet.
IPSec VPN - Secure connection between a dynamic routing gateway (DRG) and customer-premise equipment (CPE), consisting of multiple IPSec tunnels. The IPSec connection is one of the components for site-to-site VPN between a VCN and on-premises network.
Internet gateway - Provides a path for network traffic between VCN and the internet
