Three Words By Which Oracle Wants to Be Measured
The dust has finally settled and the world’s largest technology event, better known as Oracle OpenWorld, has come and gone. Although thoughts of this colossal undertaking may have dwindled for some, three buzzwords used to reflect Oracle’s pioneering vision at the Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) Forum still remain fresh in my mind: Innovation, Engineering and Execution.
In case you missed the OPN Forum, along with Judson’s dynamic keynote speech, let me catch you up to speed on some of this year’s exciting announcements. We were thrilled to announce innovations in the core tech arena, including Oracle Exastack. In the simplest of terms the Oracle Exastack Program helps ISVs deliver their applications tested, tuned and optimized for high-performance on Oracle Exadata Database Machine and Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud – integrated systems products in which the software and hardware are engineered to work together.
Hardware News Alert!
Oracle’s recent launch of the Oracle Database Appliance was nothing shy of ground breaking. Launched in September and highlighted at OPN Forum at Oracle OpenWorld, this product is considered one of the most significant for the channel in Oracle’s history.
How Does Oracle Database Appliance Work?
The Oracle Database Appliance is a simple, reliable, affordable and highly available solution designed to address the data management needs of small and midsize companies or enterprise departments. An engineered system of software, servers, storage and networking, the Oracle Database Appliance combines a
dramatically simpler user experience with pay-as-you-grow pricing – making it ideal for Oracle resellers.
Moving beyond hardware breakthroughs, attendees of the OPN Forum had no problem diving right into partner Special Interest Group sessions. During these sessions they learned about the different ways to increase Oracle sales, as well as ways to strengthen market opportunities through specialization during OPN’s Global session.
By staying true to innovation, engineering and a solid final execution, Oracle has been able to explore uncharted territory, and imagine the impossible, ultimately positioning itself as the industry leader for any and all system integrator needs.
