  • Oracle, a technology company specialising in database management systems and cloud solutions, has announced plans to establish two Oracle Cloud Regions in Morocco to provide enterprise cloud services to local and regional organisations throughout Africa. 
  • This development enables Oracle customers and partners to move mission-critical workloads from their data centres to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI).
  • It will also assist them in complying with local regulations by providing customers and partners with access to a diverse range of cloud services for modernising applications and innovating with AI, data, and analytics.

Per the company, the cloud regions in Casablanca and Settat demonstrate the company's commitment to Africa, contributing to the digital transformation of Moroccan and regional enterprises, startups, universities, and investors.

Ghita Mezzour, Minister Delegate to the Head of Government in Charge of Digital Transition and Administrative Reform, stated that the expansion establishes the country as a unique regional player, encouraging dynamic skill development and growth opportunities.

“The upcoming Oracle Cloud Regions will offer enterprise-grade cloud capabilities to help organisations quickly deliver new solutions, build resilience, and explore new markets to help accelerate growth. The new regions will also serve as the foundation for the Moroccan government’s modernisation of its public services to better serve its people,” Richard Smith, executive vice president, Technology, EMEA, Oracle also shared. 

This development comes just a few days after it announced plans to expand its research and development (R&D) capabilities in the country by hiring 1,000 information technology (IT) professionals.

It then stated that the investment will hasten the development of Oracle's cutting-edge technologies, which help solve customer challenges globally.

In May 2022, the company announced that it would open a new branch of Oracle Labs, Oracle's advanced research arm, at Casanearshore Park in Casablanca to house up to 100 researchers who will use Oracle's cloud, AI, and machine learning technologies to address the most pressing challenges in business, science, and the public sector.
