Oracle expert team

Our Mission

Company’s mission is to enable clients to improve their business through the implementation of information technology solutions of Oracle company, which is world leader in business informatics.


Why Oracle?

Besides the fact that for several decades Oracle dominates the global market of relational databases, today it has the most complete and the best integrated range of software and hardware solutions. With a broad spectrum of top-quality products and services, Oracle is emerging as an ideal platform for IT strategy implementation in any larger organization. On the other hand, large number of products and solutions may be the main obstacle in achieving optimal IT solutions because it is hard for any organization to constantly monitor their rapid development and expansion. An optimal selection and integration of right products, solutions and services is of tremendous importance for achieving business goals of any organization.

Why Parallel?

For more than twenty years Parallel is focused on specializing in the growing range of Oracle products, starting from Database Servers, development tools and Fusion Middleware infrastructure, through E-Business Suite, Fusion Application and Enterprise Content Management solutions to Data Warehousing tools, Business Intelligence tools and solutions. We help our customers in all aspects of using Oracle products: ICT architecture design phase, smart choice of right technology products and services, their procurement, installation and integration, designing and implementation of solutions, training, technical support, administration, as well as all forms of consulting, either technical or business-functional.

Our team is composed of a balanced mix of youth and experience – from the experts with European reputation who are working with Oracle products since 1986, to the young masters who are just born that year.






Smart Solutions

Information technology projects are expensive ones, especially if they are executing in a conventional way „as everybody do it“. Working with our clients, we always seek for innovative manner to satisfy their needs in the most rational way. When a procurement of software licenses, hardware, communication services, maintenance and administration is concerned, a typical saving which we achieve is generally higher than a total cost of our services related to the project. This is achieved by a careful analysis of user needs, excellent knowledge of interrelationships of all system components, and development of low-cost substitute for unnecessarily expensive components.

An example is the Parallel Storage - a device that combines a 18TB iSCSI storage operating under Oracle Automatic Storage Management and Clusterware system with spare Oracle Database Server, at a price that is 10 to 20 times lower than the price of a typical storage server, eliminating the need for a backup unit and the backup database server (for small and medium-sized database server). At the same time, its performance and reliability fully meets the needs of archiving scanned and multimedia content.
