KDDI: KDDI Switches Its Online Payment Software to Oracle Database

Mar 03, 2023 | Posted by Abdul-Rahman Oladimeji

KDDI, a Japanese telecom company, has a partnership with Oracle and will use the database of the technology company for its online payment brand. For disaster recovery, it has also implemented Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). The company that runs the "au" mobile phone service in Japan, KDDI, said this week that it would be switching to Oracle Database for its au PAY online payment provider and the au Ponta Points loyalty rewards program. The company claims that this action has boosted the speed of the payment process by five times and improved the process performance of the au Ponta Points Program by 200 percent. The increase in KDDI's data and transaction volume was the driving force behind the switch to Oracle's database service. There are already 31 million au Pay users, which is rising. Japan is home to over 125 million people. 

Oracle Database will serve as a data platform for the corporation's Java software development resources, according to Nobukai Kamada, general manager of the DC architect department, information system division, and technology sector at KDDI Corporation. It is anticipated that this move will cut release times in half. The company will also use Oracle Real Application Clusters, Data Guard, and GoldenGate for its au applications, and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure will be used for its disaster recovery system. KDDI's payment and customer point program, according to Toshimitsu Misawa, member of the board and corporate executive officer & president of Oracle Japan, is a crucial component of the social infrastructure for Japanese customers. The collaboration between the two businesses began in February 2021.
