CFOs: Make the All-Out Leap into Digital Business

Written by Margaret Harrist, Oracle Director of Content Strategy

In this data-driven, digital age, much of what drives business is intangible—including customer satisfaction, intellectual property, and brand reputation. Such tough-to-quantify, hard-to-measure areas as those offer a big opportunity for CFOs to work with leaders throughout the business to create new benchmarks—and thus play a leading role in their company's strategic future. "These profound business transformations promise to reshape the responsibilities of every C-level executive, and for CFOs the new challenges center on driving digital-first priorities, processes, and culture across teams," writes Oracle Chief Communications Officer Bob Evans in a recent article on Forbes.com.

Evans breaks down the top five strategic issues for CFOs as they face these challenges in 2016, including the need to go all in on cloud computing to modernize critical operations such as finance, human resources, and supply chain management.

After all, according to a recent survey of executives worldwide, there's a big gap between the data and insights CFOs need and the information that their current systems can provide. For example, 76 percent said customer satisfaction is a key driver, but only 25 percent said that their company can assemble and analyze data on customer sentiment. Overcoming this chasm will take modern technology, heavy analytics skills, and thinking way outside the box.

Being First to Market is no Longer Enough

Written by Shawn Price, Senior Vice President for Oracle Cloud and Product Business Groups, at Oracle @ShawnPrice1000  

Being first to market has for some time now been synonymous with success, and not without reason. From Ford to Nintendo, companies have found an advantage in being the first to launch new and exciting products. But is this still the case? Does the so-called ‘first-mover advantage’ really mean as much as it used to? 

If you listen to Reid Hoffman, co-founder of LinkedIn, the answer to these questions is a resounding ‘no’, at least when looking at the case of Silicon Valley businesses. For Hoffman, the ability to rapidly scale a digital product or service once it has a customer base is much more important than being first. For evidence, he gives the example of Facebook, which successfully grew its businesses to a breath-taking size in just six years. 

Digital innovation

Hoffman’s view is entirely correct, but it can be taken further. To a greater or lesser extent, all businesses today are ‘Silicon Valley’ businesses in so far as technology lies at the heart of what they do. After all, digital and mobile applications are every bit as important to, for example, a fashion retailer or restaurant as they are to digital service providers such as LinkedIn. 

In the case of the fashion business they can be used to improve everything from logistics and supply chain management to enhancing customer service, while for many restaurants digital applications are transforming how customers place their orders and the way kitchens meet these orders. Whatever the sector, it is easy to imagine ways the customer experience can be improved by enhanced web and mobile applications.   

Continual innovation

Business – and public sector organisations too – must therefore place digital innovation at the heart of everything they do in a way that allows them to continually grow and build further on their innovations. In fact, businesses serious about competing and winning market share need to embrace a philosophy of continual innovation. They must ensure that they never rest on their laurels. This means they should proactively look at how they can improve existing product lines and business models, launch entirely new ones, and be sure they can scale both with ease. 

This all makes good sense from a business perspective, but it also begs a key question: how can businesses embed continual innovation within their organizations without incurring high costs? And how can they physically build, test and launch new applications and features at the pace demanded by modern business? Indeed, how can businesses afford to risk all on innovations that may or may not work? 

Businesses need a way to reduce the time, cost and complexity that has traditionally characterised application development. They need to be able to risk failure on applications without that failure coming at too punitive a price. In a way, application development needs to be taken down from its pedestal and integrated into all parts of the business as a day-to-day task, where business units themselves can take on some of the development functions that have traditionally been the preserve of the IT team. 

Enabling continual innovation

Until recently such an environment was largely the stuff of dreams, but the rapid rise of cloud computing has meant that these dreams can now be realised. In fact, the ideal of continual innovation is today within reach of all businesses.  

One cloud platform – Platform as a Service (PaaS) – is particularly important in this respect. PaaS brings the qualities that have made cloud computing so compelling for business application provision to the world of application development; namely ease of use, price flexibility and scalability.  

Ease of use is important because it reduces the time it takes to develop applications. All the resources and toolsets needed for a development environment can be taken as a service, which means they can be delivered to the business almost immediately through the cloud. In the past, such resources and toolsets would need to be procured, set up and project managed by the IT department, a process that could take many months depending on what else the IT department had on its to do list.  

Cost is also important. When provisioning bespoke development environments for each application, as is the case in traditional on-premise set ups, the costs can quickly add up. Consequently, few businesses are willing to invest in the storage, infrastructure and database resources needed for application development, unless the business case is iron clad. Not only does this hinder innovation, but it also impedes the ability to scale.  

Faster innovation at scale

With PaaS, however, businesses can take whatever resources they need for any given stage of development. If a business wants to rapidly evaluate an application it can do so in the cloud, using pre-existing toolsets to build the application and test it using virtualised cloud resources. If successful, the business can then easily scale up, either by buying more capacity from cloud providers or moving the application to their on-premise or private cloud resources if preferred. 

Indeed, this is perhaps the most significant capability of PaaS solutions: to act as a bridge between public and private clouds and on-premise systems. We are facing what will be a decade of coexistence between cloud and on-premise computing. Crucially, the right PaaS solutions are compatible with both and therefore can act as glue, binding on-premise and cloud solutions in hybrid cloud infrastructures with a single unified view. 

PaaS, therefore, not only allows businesses to innovate, but ensures they can stay relevant by continually building on their ideas and winning over new customers in the process. It also means that if businesses hit on a winning web or mobile application they are able to scale it rapidly and make the most of the business opportunity. This ensures that regardless of whether they are first to market or last, if they have a service that customers want to use, they are able to build on it rapidly and fuel growth for the business.

Your Journey to the Oracle Cloud

You can’t rush your journey to the cloud. It takes up front planning and analysis to determine your first steps toward a cloud environment. But with the right management tools and best practices in place, it can be a much faster, simpler, and more rewarding process than you might envision. Some initial steps to consider for your transition to cloud:

  1. A first step would be to consolidate, standardize and automate your existing on-premises IT environment. This lays a foundation for migration over time to the cloud. You don’t want to move from a heavily distributed, non-standardized environment and then just move that into the cloud. That just takes you from essentially existing physical “sprawl” to virtual “sprawl”. Standardizing and consolidating is a key first step to avoid propagation of these complexities into a cloud environment.
  2. Next, implement a private cloud, to leverage immediate benefits in increased agility while retaining control of your environment.  More and more companies are implementing a private cloud with self-service access, automation, elastic scaling, and so forth, to achieve the benefits of cloud on-premises.
  3. Explore Oracle’s extensive public cloud services, from cloud applications, to PaaS, to IaaS.  Educate yourself about the offerings with the multitude of white papers, webcasts, demos, and videos available.  This will help you in your planning and strategizing on which project to implement in Oracle Cloud first.
  4. Look at the management capabilities included with the Oracle Cloud services.  A key aspect is the use of Oracle Enterprise Manager, which allows you to manage your on-premises or private cloud, as well as your services running in Oracle Cloud.
  5. Start with your simplest use cases, and move those first, such as development and test.  Development and test environments are ideal as they typically have no data dependency or security considerations, as you are using strictly test data.

Five best practices for PaaS [Platform as a Service]

In the Fall of 2014, ComputerWorld published a report detailing the results from a survey conducted with 300 IT executives and practitioners worldwide. The questions ranged from type of applications being run on the cloud now and in the future, support for mission-critical apps, the challenges faced from an interoperability perspective, and more. The results highlighted some critical insights from these experts which for certain topics were surprisingly significantly aligned. Calling this phenomena [this alignment] the wisdom of the crowd, we bet that as the industry moves forward with the cloud initiative, IT leaders worldwide are increasingly adopting these practices, driving these to become best practices. Hence our attempt at culling these and putting these within an infographic, so its easily available at a birds eye view level to IT practitioners undertaking their cloud journey right now.

For further details, refer to the the ComputerWorld Survey report here.

"Be a disrupter"- A Recap of Cloudworld Frankfurt

written by:  Petra Brücklmeier

“Be a disruptor“ – with these words, Jürgen Kunz, Oracle Senior Vice President and Country Leader Germany, ended his opening keynote at Oracle CloudWorld in Frankfurt. Around 1,000 participants came to the Congress Center not only to learn about the latest Oracle Cloud developments but also to experience and discuss what digital transformation means and which disruptive consequences it has for most – in fact: all – sectors of the economy.

Mr. Kunz illustrated what disruptive – the changing of everything that has been – means using the example of the taxi industry and its new competitor Uber. Without digitalization, Uber`s business model would be unthinkable, which is true for Airbnb and many others who stir up traditional fields as well. But he also pointed out that with the rise of driverless cars the business model of Uber might have to change soon again.

According to Jürgen Kunz, only companies that are able to imagine, develop, and realize truly disruptive business models had a chance to survive through digital transformation. The Oracle Cloud portfolio offers the necessary foundation: it is comprehensive, flexible, and scalable to make quickly bring services to the market. „The only constant is change“has never been as true as it is today.

This observation was confirmed by guest speaker Thomas Sattelberger, former board member of Telekom AG, Continental AG, and Lufthansa Passage. In a stirring speech, he pleaded for more risk-taking in Germany instead of resting on the laurels of the past. The country and its companies had to accept that similarly good products could be produced all over the world. Future business models evolved around Smart Services offered around these products. If German manufacturers did not understand this, corresponding services would be offered by American internet companies, degrading the German industry to a mere supplier.

In this context, he also said that the government should consider reforming education goals to cultivate entrepreneurship and risk-taking which may ultimately lead to new business models. „Surfing the wave or running from the tsunami, it is for us to choose“, Mr. Sattelberger said at the end of his speech. The long applause showed that his audience tended to consider themselves surfers.

Up next was Steve Miranda, Oracle Executive Vice President Applications Development, who explained the benefits of the Oracle Cloud Services, especially Oracle CX Cloud, Oracle HR Cloud, and Oracle ERP Cloud. He said that the modern cloud was personalized, connected, and safe – personalized meaning that it was tailored to the user with all the dashboards, reports, and processes they needed; connected, that processes and analytics were integrated and there was a network including all required data and persons. And to meet local data security standards and protect data, the correct security functions have to be available. At the same time, Mr. Miranda showed that the cloud had to be viewed less as an outsourcing and more as a driver of innovation by now. This is because cloud applications help to make resources available quickly and easily when they are needed. A group of Oracle customers on the main stage with companies such as Elsevier, Elizabeth Arden, Soundcloud, and the German Federal Employment Agency confirmed their positive experience with Oracle Cloud solutions.

Another use case followed: Peter Gapp, responsible for IT and Cloud Governance at Siemens, explained how his company benefits from the cloud, stressing that national borders were no obstacles for a global player such as Siemens. He gave fascinating examples of consolidating Marketing Automation and CRM in a single tool, thereby optimizing the data transfer from marketing to sales departments which brings the operation closer to the customer. Despite still being perceived differently, Mr. Gapp said that Siemens was no longer an ocean liner but worked to be close to its customers with many small speed boats. The Oracle cloud helps him to achieve this.

After a fascinating and inspiring morning, the afternoon offered seven Breakout Sessions. Oracle Cloud experts and users presented topics such as: Modern Backoffice, More Selling, IT Platform in the Cloud, Marketing Transformation, HR as a Business-Shaping Factor, and Modern Customer Service. The parallel exhibition and the breaks presented opportunities for discussion around the keynotes and sessions as well as to exchange experiences before the event ended with cold beers and music.

Oracle OpenWorld Kicks Off with Larry Ellison Keynote

Welcome to Oracle OpenWorld 2014!!!! Larry Ellison, Executive Chairman and CTO of Oracle Corp kicked off the start of the conference week Sunday night with a discussion of new Oracle Cloud services and product offerings.

A couple of key points from Larry’s talk on Oracle’s cloud strategy, Oracle’s focus is to enable the customer to preserve their existing investments in both hardware and software. Oracle’s strategy is to make it an easy transition to a cloud model, with an integrated stack that works together. So as your business needs evolves over time, your IT infrastructure is positioned to evolve with you. One very interesting example Larry showed was the ability to literally move or “unplug” an existing on-premise database and take it to the Oracle Cloud and “plug” it in there, using the Oracle Multitenant capability. This incredible ease of moving your application AND your data to the cloud heralds a new whole world for your business.

In addition, Larry focused on the platform strength of the Oracle offering for cloud; it’s the same platform Oracle uses internally for its own applications development, plus its own public cloud offering, powers 9 out of 10 of the top SaaS providers, and provides the most robust database and application server available. An important aspect of that is exactly that Oracle uses the same platform itself, thereby making moving applications or data between on premises and cloud environments transparent and seamless.

A further announcement Larry made was of the general availability of Oracle’s Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance, the world's first and only engineered system designed specifically for database protection. This massively scalable appliance delivers unparalleled data protection, automation, efficiency and scalability. The cloud-scale architecture enables a single Recovery Appliance to manage the data protection requirements of thousands of databases, avoiding the cost and complexity of disparate backup systems. The automation eliminates the human error aspect of implementing a backup and recovery strategy.

In other cloud news, Oracle’s complete cloud strategy was presented to a packed room on Monday morning, showing both the private cloud as well as the public cloud capability.  For private cloud, Oracle provides a complete solution spanning servers, storage, database, middleware, integration technologies and of course the complete management of the entire stack as well as the cloud lifecycle.

If you’re able to attend OpenWorld this week in San Francisco, keep an eye out for the Oracle Cloud Paas and Iaas demo showcase, located front and center in the Exhibit Hall. And be sure to add the Intercontinental San Francisco to your itinerary for hands-on labs devoted to public cloud and the Hotel Nikko for hands-on labs devoted to all other cloud-related topics.
