Oracle is partnering with data analytics firm Palantir to offer joint cloud, data and AI solutions to businesses.

Under the agreement, Palantir's Foundry software as a service platform will operate on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

Foundry is built to help users improve decision making through data visualization and model building. It is already used by Pacific Gas and Electric and the Scuderia Ferrari F1 team.

Oracle business customers can now access Foundry as well as Palantir's Gotham and AI platforms through Oracle's distributed cloud services to aid in decision making.

Palantir’s AI platform allows users to securely integrate their enterprise data with Palantir’s large language models to better understand their data through “a single common operating picture.” Gotham works similarly but is tailored toward defense applications.

“By combining the performance, scalability and flexibility of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure with Palantir's leading data and AI platforms, we will help our customers win in any industry or environment,” said Rand Waldron, Oracle vice president.

The partnership also looks to entice government customers. 

Palantir currently has a contract to provide software solutions to the U.K.'s National Health Service (NHS). Through its partnership with Oracle, Palantir’s solutions could be used by more government entities, leveraging Oracle's Sovereign Cloud and Government Cloud platforms tailored for government applications.

Palantir has previously supported data and AI efforts for the U.S. Army and the Department of Defense. As part of its deal with Oracle, Palantir’s AI tech will be available to defense and intelligence clients via Oracle Roving Edge, which powers portable, localized networks.

"Palantir and Oracle are both dedicated to defending Western interests and institutions around the world," said Josh Harris, Palantir’s executive vice president. "Oracle Cloud Infrastructure's unique ability to help customers meet their regulatory, performance and security needs will increase our impact and help our global clients gain the full benefits of cloud and AI."

Despite partnering, both companies will still jointly sell cloud and AI services.

Oracle’s Palantir partnership follows its recent launch of a suite of cloud-based generative AI apps businesses can use to help automate tasks.
