This is the first in a series of posts on my views of the recent Oracle OpenWorld 2014 conference, which I attended last week in San Francisco.
Chris Leone, SVP & GM Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud, gave a presentation on just where Oracle Cloud Services are with Fusion HCM. He said that cloud services should be "personalized, connected and secure". Oracle now has 19 datacentres worldwide and security is built on DB security options.
He reported that cloud momentum had doubled since last year. Of over 500 HCM customers, more than 50% were 'net new' to Oracle.
Oracle now has over 13500 HCM customers across all their products. $1BN investment is going into cloud services every year.
Oracle's mission is to "build the broadest, deepest suite of applications" in the cloud.
My view? This is Oracle's 4th year in the cloud. Relative newcomers, but here to stay!
