US technology company Oracle has opened its new office at the Ghana’s Airport City, in a move aimed at expanding the company’s cloud portfolio in the region and providing sales and consulting services.

The company has up a regional facility that will train Ghanaian staff in technology innovation to empower them to apply Information and Communication Technology (ICT) as the main driver of Ghana’s economic transformation.

Oracle’s Cluster Leader for sub-Saharan Africa Mr Cherian Varghese, said the new facility signified the growth of the company’s business in Ghana, and said they would continue to invest in the people’s development to best serve customers.

Cherian said Oracle Ghana understands the importance of personal engagement with its customers and partners, and their new office would give the company a great opportunity to strengthen those relationships even further.

The Country Manager of Oracle Ghana, Mr Joseph Asumang said they were committed to helping organisations transition to and embrace the cloud; enabling them to transform their businesses with oracle solutions, adding that their customers were using information technology as a powerful tool, and they were saving money, while delivering services that were not possible before their partnerships.
