And he urges our existing customers on Oracle’s EBS, Siebel, PeopleSoft and JD Edwards to take the product upgrades that provide better user interface, more mobile capabilities, BI, and more. He also recommends they take a baby step into the cloud by deploying an application in a particular area of interest or need to get a big payoff with little disruption.

“Blurring the line between retirement and resort.” That’s one of the taglines for Vi (formerly Classic Residence by Hyatt), a national leader in high-end senior living. Vi also is a great example of an organization that has the philosophy of learning integrated into its corporate culture.

Vi is dedicated to enriching the lives of senior citizens by providing high-quality customer care and services. The company’s financial growth is driven by satisfied customers, and Vi believes that customer satisfaction can only be delivered by satisfied employees. In fact, more than 30 percent of Vi’s sales come from resident referrals. Therefore, having a strong customer-centric culture is vital to its value proposition.

Making Waves in the Analysts’ Community

A guest post by Natalia Rachelson, Senior Director, Outbound Product Management, Oracle Applications

It was with a mixture of excitement and anxiety that I boarded a plane at Chicago’s O’Hare bound for San Francisco last week — excitement because it had been a while since I’d been to Oracle Headquarters and I was craving to see familiar faces and places, and anxiety because this wasn’t just any business trip. I was traveling to attend and assist with Oracle Analyst World (OAW).
