Our Story

Magia was founded in 1998 in Perth Western Australia as SDS Group and has been an Oracle Partner since 2006.  Primarily focused on Oracle BI solutions, we expanded into Oracle ERP solutions from 2004 until 2013 when the focus shifted to Oracle Cloud technologies.  Magia was formed in 2015 in the UK and US and the merging of these organisations with the Australian Magia entity has resulted on the brand as it is today.

Our Values

At Magia, we maintain our enviable reputation with our customers, partners and vendors by maintaining our standards constantly against our eight key areas of focus.  We aim to foster and develop a corporate culture and a reputation which harnesses following eight values:

Integrity

One of our key differentiators is the value for money we offer to our customers.  We are known for efficient and cost-effective delivery.  At Magia, we consider delivering value a priority and an expectation

Value

Integrity is the foundation of trust and the keystone of our corporate culture. We at Magia pride ourselves at consistently operation with honesty, integrity and an open disposition.

Specialisation

Our aim is to be the very best at what we do.  We do not try to be a jack-of-all-trades, we carefully select a set of skills we believe are relevant and in demand in the market.  We then ensure that our staff have the very best training, experience and expertise.

Local Presence

Our customers appreciate is our local Australian presence. Primarily based in Perth, we also maintain resources in Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra. Additionally, we have offshore and near shore resources readily available.

Delivery

We focus on delivery as the core of what we do.  With every undertaking, our goal is to ensure efficient, time-effective, cost-effective delivery of a quality outcome for our customers.  We are always aiming to deliver more efficiently and more effectively than the time before.

Experience

Tied closely to our focus on specialisation is our focus on supplying the market with a team of carefully selected individuals who have the credentials, implementations & certifications behind them to ensure we can maintain our high standard of delivery.

Innovation

As an Oracle ISV (Independent Software Vendor) we at Magia are always looking to apply the latest technology in new and innovative ways to develop and enhance the offerings we bring to market.

Partnering

We focus on what we do best.  We believe that working collaboratively with our partners, who are the leaders in their areas of expertise, we can leverage each organisation’s core competencies to maximise our delivery capability for our customers.
