Globe Telecom Selects Oracle Fusion Middleware and Oracle Exalogic Elastic 
Cloud for Business Transformation 
Oracle Solutions Enable BSS and OSS Transformation Through Better
Integration and Connectivity Across Disparate Legacy Platforms 
REDWOOD SHORES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/28/13 --  Oracle (NASDAQ:
News Facts 

--  Globe Telecom (Globe), one of the leading telecommunications companies
    in the Philippines, has implemented Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud and
    Oracle Fusion Middleware solutions for its business support systems
    (BSS) and operations support systems (OSS) to support the carrier's
    ongoing initiative to drive better integration of legacy systems and
    third-party applications and enable re-usable service-based
    connectivity in a heterogeneous IT environment.
--  Serving more than 32 million subscribers in the country, Globe targets
    to leverage the Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) project to support the
    goal of quintuple revenue growth over the next five years. The project
    is going to provide the backbone infrastructure and underlying
    connectivity required for the carrier's BSS and OSS platforms. The
    integrated solutions include Oracle SOA Suite, Oracle Service Bus and
    Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud.
--  Before the deployment of the ESB project, Globe faced a range of
    business and IT challenges such as lack of flexibility to adapt to the
    changing business requirements and keep pace with rapid business
    growth, and inability to scale up systems performance to address large
    and unexpected spikes in workload demand.
--  In May 2012, Globe decided to move away from the existing IBM-based
    middleware infrastructure and choose Oracle Fusion Middleware
    solutions to modernize its IT infrastructure in order to speed time to
    market, improve system resilience and increase business agility at
    lower total cost of ownership (TCO).
--  Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud is hardware and software engineered
    together to provide extreme performance, reliability and scalability
    for Java, Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle Applications and ISV
    applications, while delivering lower total cost of ownership, reduced
    risk, higher user productivity and one-stop support.
--  The
 pre-engineered and open architecture of Oracle Exalogic delivers
    the benefits of reduced application integration complexity, shortened
    implementation time, and increased flexibility to handle high workload
    demand. It also helps decrease development and maintenance costs as
    the new robust and scalable platform is able to support future systems
--  Globe had been searching for an appropriate technology solution to
    support its critical and demanding business requirements for a long
    time. Oracle SOA Suite is one of the key determinants for Globe's ESB
    project. Oracle SOA Suite transforms complex point-to-point
    application integration into a simplified and agile shared service
    application infrastructure, enabling the re-use of existing resources
    and minimizing the changes to applications. Due to increased
    adaptability of the software and enhanced flexibility to scale out the
    systems, the ESB project is expected to reduce the overall TCO and
    deliver high return on investment (ROI) in the medium to long run.
--  The implementation of the ESB project is targeted to be completed by
    the end of the first quarter of 2013. NCSI (Philippines) Inc., a Gold
    level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), provides consultancy and
    implementation services for the ESB project and covers the
    installation at the carrier's production and disaster recovery sites.

--  "We want our subscribers to 'Enjoy Globe, Your Way' -- this is a goal
    that we had in mind when the ESB Project was conceived. We hope to
    offer our customers products and services that are relevant to them
    based on their needs. In our world today where change is inevitable
    because of changing markets, rules, and regulations, this is usually
    expensive and hard to implement. However, our goal of flexibility and
    agility can be achieved if we have an enterprise architecture that
    will allow us to adapt to changes faster and drive operational costs
    down," said Henry Aguda, Chief Information Officer, Globe Telecom.
    "This project makes this vision possible by implementing a solution
    that promotes Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). With this solution,
    we hope to address the challenges that a lot of companies face today
    if their IT and organizations operate in silos."
--  "We wanted a solution that will
 deliver universal connectivity and
    transformation across heterogeneous information technology (IT)
    environments. With an improved and more integrated Service Oriented
    Architecture (SOA), we will have the agility and flexibility to
    deliver more innovative products and services to our customers at less
    cost. This new open system will also allow easier integration with our
    other systems and frameworks to provide a seamless customer experience
    across our array of products," said Henry Aguda, Chief Information
    Officer, Globe Telecom. "We are confident that in choosing Oracle as
    our technology partner, we will be able to focus our investment on
    business growth and development instead of spending on the maintenance
    of complicated and silo-based systems."
--  "It is very encouraging to see the delivery of positive results from
    the fast implementation of Oracle Fusion Middleware and Oracle
    Exalogic which took less than ten months to complete. The
    pre-configured and pre-integrated solutions will help Globe improve
    business agility and become more adaptive to the dynamic changes in
    the telecommunications industry," said Ying Loong Chin, Vice
    President, Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle ASEAN. "With the breadth
    and depth of our industry expertise and technology excellence, we are
    ready to provide telecommunications service providers with more
    innovative solutions to address multiple challenges and opportunities
    brought by emerging and disruptive technologies such as social, mobile
    and cloud in years ahead."
