'Digital India' gets a push as Oracle Cloud gets validated for India Stack

Oracle, that provides cloud applications and platform services, has announced the validation of its Oracle Cloud Platform to develop applications using India Stack services. According to the company, India Stack is a set of APIs that allows developers working with government, businesses, and startups to utilize a unique digital Infrastructure to deliver secure presence-less, paperless, and cashless service delivery. In line with the ‘Digital India’ initiative, the validation would help developers and partners to leverage Oracle Cloud at Customer to create and test next generation cloud applications that invoke core India Stack APIs, including Aadhaar Authentication and eKYC, eSign and DigiLocker. “Oracle is committed to empowering developers around the world to take advantage of the latest technologies to build the next generation of innovative applications,” said Amit Zavery, Senior Vice President, Oracle Cloud Platform and Middleware. “For India, that means creating applications that enable payments and collaboration not previously possible. With the validation of India Stack with Oracle Cloud, we are further empowering India’s robust developer and partner community to deliver cutting-edge applications that meet stringent regulatory requirements and protect the interests of India’s users and organizations.” Oracle states that this validation would allow developers to gain choice and flexibility of where to deploy their modern India Stack-based applications – inside their own datacenter, in the Oracle Cloud, or in a traditional on-premises environment. Oracle Cloud at Customer offerings leverages the company’s Cloud IaaS and PaaS capabilities to help clients innovate, while meeting regulatory, data sovereignty and residency requirements behind their firewall. It has an integrated portfolio of platform services, which also helps users to increase productivity and lower costs. The company claims that India Stack APIs can also be leveraged with Oracle SaaS applications for India specific enhancements. Early adopters of the India Stack already include innovative developers participating in the Oracle Startup Cloud Accelerator (OSCA) program. OSCA was launched in Bengaluru and subsequent expansion into Delhi/NCR, Mumbai and other international markets more than a year back. Since then the company has mentored two batches of startups as part of this program in India and has now announced the calls for applications from early-stage technology startups to join this program. The Oracle Startup Cloud Accelerator program provides startups with six months of training and mentorship, state-of-the-art technology, a co-working space, access to Oracle customers, partners and investors and free Oracle Cloud credits. Through this initiative, the company aims at boosting entrepreneurship, economic development and further the country’s digital agenda.
