Oracle Announces Storage Cloud and Oracle Database Backup Service

Oracle announced today that the Storage Cloud Service and Database Backup Service are now generally available in the Oracle Cloud. I thought it would be worth discussing the significance of these two new services beyond what's stated in today's press release. But before I do, let me first start with the basics of each service. The Oracle Storage Cloud Service is an IaaS offering that provides a secure, scalable, and reliable object storage solution for easily storing and managing data backups and archives in the cloud. The Oracle Database Backup Service is a PaaS offering that provides a simple, low-cost, and secure cloud-based backup and restore solution for on-premise Oracle Databases.

The launch of the Storage Cloud is significant as it marks the first time the Oracle Cloud, or any public cloud for that matter, offers services in every key layer of the cloud technology stack: SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS. With Oracle Cloud, you're not forced to build and maintain integrations between multiple public clouds in order to meet the growing needs of your business. While storage itself has become more of a commodity over the years, the importance of security and reliability of storage housing critical business data can never be overstated. The Storage Cloud has features you'd expect from an enterprise-class storage solution like built-in redundancy, access via RESTful web services or Java libraries, and capacity on-demand. That's not to say that other clouds that offer storage services can't or don't offer similar capabilities, but now you have the choice of storing your data in the same cloud that you can depend on to run all of your critical business applications. Wouldn't it be nice to have a single cloud and single cloud service provider to work with for all of your business application and data needs?

Every business performs backups of their critical databases to reduce the risk of data loss. The Database Backup Service provides a simple, low-cost solution that can become part of a multi-tiered database backup and  restore strategy.  From my experience, most IT organizations perform RMAN backups of Oracle Databases to local disk, and usually to the Fast Recovery Area.  However, when it comes to Tier 2 backups, most perform RMAN backups to remote disk. Then for those who are storing data that is infrequently accessed, Tier 3 backups are stored to tape and archived. Now with the Database Backup Service, you can avoid the data center cost and resource requirements associated with buying and deploying additional disk and tape backup systems by moving your Tier 2 or Tier 3 backup and restore solutions to the cloud. One of the advantages not mentioned in the press release is that the Database Backup Service actually stores database backups to the Storage Cloud, which means that all of the security and reliability of triple-mirroring for redundancy and data isolation apply to the Database Backup Service as well.

I hope you take the time to review the details of these two latest additions to the Oracle Cloud service portfolio. If you think you could benefit from either of these new services, sign up for a 30 day free trial and take them for a test drive.

When is “Big Data” in HR Just Analytics?

By Mike Vilimek

wow

If you follow HR technology even a little, you have heard something about big data. In terms of popularity, it’s right up there with other key trends like social, mobile, and the cloud. And while definitions for many of these are not set in stone, big data is by far the most undefined and misunderstood trend of the bunch.

Checklist for Sales and Sales Operations Leaders

You’re running a sales or sales operations team. You get invited to a number of events—or are spending time out of the office with customers. That’s your job.

Another invitation comes along. You quickly scan it, thinking “what’s in this for me?

The Checklist

  • New Ideas: Do you look outside your company, to industry thought leaders and your sales peers for new ideas?
  • Career Planning: Is it important to look ahead—for your business and your career—to understand where Selling is headed and how it’s changing your job?
  • Translating Plans to Action: Is there something you could learn from your peers—running Sales organizations like yours—about doing things faster, closing more big-ticket deals?

You Are Not Even Wrong About the Cloud - Part 2

In the first part of this blog series, I described the orthogonal nature of costs and benefits with regard to Cloud computing. The mismatch between the forces that incur costs and rack up benefits has led to a general misunderstanding of this technology area. The first area for examination of this mismatch are the different audiences investigating Cloud computing.

The past couple of years have really reminded me of the early 90s, with Cloud taking the place of graphical user interfaces (GUIs). I distinctly remember being at the launch of Window 3.0, the first real GUI from Microsoft, the dominant client operating system. There were a bunch of crotchety old IT guys (who were probably younger than I am now) complaining about how they “weren’t going to buy 286s to run Windows”. And they were probably right. They didn’t buy 286s that year – they bought 486s in two years.

Because the wave of GUIs was an unstoppable tsunami. The client side of the environment went from green-screen/command-line to GUI in just a couple of years, whether IT liked it or not. The reason was simple: it was easier.

You Are Not Even Wrong About the Cloud - Part 1

Many years ago, I read an article in The New Yorker about a math expert who was working as one of the early quants on Wall Street. One phrase from that article has become a part of my vocabulary – “You are not even wrong”. By this, the mathematician meant that the person was so far off base on a topic as to not even qualify as being wrong – it’s like they had left the universe of correct and incorrect on a certain topic.

I have used it over the years as a sarcastic description of some opinion I felt was on the far side of clueless. But, in reality, the description is not just an ultimate putdown of sorts. This phrase can apply to any ideas which don’t really apply to a particular scenario. The person expressing the opinion is not necessarily unintelligent, or even uninformed. They are just playing on the wrong field.

I’ve been product manager for the Oracle Database Cloud for the past 3 years, and I find that this situation is wildly common when people talk about Cloud computing. Seemingly everyone is excited about the possibilities of the Cloud, but the overwhelming majority of people are looking at this technology area from an inappropriate viewpoint.

Put simply, most believe the Cloud is magic. And we all know there is no magic technology – even a great advance like Exadata is a result of a bunch of good decisions implemented well.

The problem lies in something I refer to as the orthogonal nature of costs and benefits. When two terms are orthogonal, there is no statistical relationship between them. In the same way, there are important facets of Cloud computing where the costs and benefits stem from different places – places which are rarely united in a single world view.

This blog is the first of five parts. In the next three parts (with the first of these three parts here), I will discuss three prominent areas of orthogonal costs and benefits, which will help you to understand how to properly evaluate the what, when and hows of Cloud computing for your particular organization. The final part will be a general prescription on how to move to the Cloud to maximize benefits and minimize both problems and disappointments.

How Mobile & Social Increase the Value of HR Technology

By Mike Vilimek

wow

A key finding from CedarCrestone’s 2013 – 2014 HR Systems Survey was that improving the user experience is an important way to improve user adoption. It makes sense really. If a system provides an easy, modern, and engaging user experience, chances are more people will use it. Contrary, if a system provides a frustrating, complex and outdated user experience, people will simply avoid using it.

6 Tips to Fuel Customer-Focused Marketing

written by: Amanda Batista

In the modern marketplace, no longer can customer and prospect engagements be relegated to generic, templated messaging. Because technology has, and continues to, evolve at a rapid pace, consumers are kept connected, informed, and empowered to make smarter decisions to support their goals. The Amazon.com “You Might Also Like Approach” consumers have become accustomed to as consumers has translated to our professional roles, and they expect relevant and compelling offers and communications from the brands they engage with.

Organizations also need to meet more demands for programs, such as digital marketing and social media — with fewer resources — but the lack of access to customer information can make it difficult to create and deliver compelling campaigns. While this has challenged organizations to rethink their engagement strategies to refine the alignment of marketing and sales communications, the digitally fueled ecosystem also presents unique and exciting opportunities for marketers and sales people to interact with consumers across more channels, enhancing the ability to garner important behavioral data to build out detailed profiles.

Moreover, organizations are challenged to take a metrics-based approach to better serve these more informed consumers. To deliver on the promise of relevant and value, marketing and sales teams must be aligned in their strategic measurements and engagement communications.

Cloud technology facilitates greater access to customer information, enabling you to have greater top-line revenue and return on your company's marketing investment. A modern marketing approach — with the right mix of process technology (science) and creative content (art) — can transform your business.

To help you think outside your traditional marketing box here are 3 “building benefits” — or a phased approach — to integrating marketing communications in the cloud:

1. Understand your buyer with a universal customer profile- The proliferation of engagement channels has ushered in a massive outpour of valuable data that organizations can use to expand their prospect and customer profiles. For example, marketers can include activities relevant to digital assets, and track customer activity through earned, owned, and paid media during the engagement process.

2. Align organizational business practices- Organizations that have done the hard work to agree on definitions must collaborate to set shared goals for their sales and marketing teams. To make this process easier and more transparent, they need a shared set of metrics to define the Sales/Marketing pipeline – and form “one view of the truth." This shared sales and marketing dashboard can be a “holy grail” because it allows organizations to understand the velocity and shape of the sales pipeline and make real-time adjustments if they see an opportunity or issue. In addition to optimized efficiency and more seamless execution, a key benefit of alignment is that the end user experience is optimized as a result of that united front.

3. Demonstrate value to your audience- With the buyer in the driver seat, marketers have to find a way to comfortably ride shotgun rather than being left in the backseat, or worse, not have the opportunity to ride along at all. To optimize customer acquisition and retention, marketers must continually demonstrate value and commitment to their customers. With the proper understanding of how today’s digital marketing technology enables you to know your buyer (and appropriately action the right marketing engagement).

4. Improve campaign results by leveraging digital body language and real-time data

Tracking marketing effectiveness helps marketing departments determine whether their campaigns have been successful in compelling prospects to take a desired action. Marketers can then fine-tune their strategies in the midst of a campaign while keeping executive management posted on how Marketing is helping to fill the sales pipeline.

The World’s Gone Mobile. What Does that Mean for HR?

 written by: Stephanie Lepow

Today’s employees are accustomed to a new consumer-driven culture where they have a voice, are connected and can get things done when and where they want. Everywhere you look, people are tapping away on smartphones and tablets. And it’s not just about texting friends or posting Facebook status updates. Consumers today shop in their pajamas, and in the airport terminal and on their way to work. They pay bills while standing in line at the grocery store. They answer emails while waiting for their latte. Mobile technology—both the accessibility and the attention paid to delivering a simple and user-centric experience—has changed the way we communicate. This has spilled over into the workplace. In the 2013 Avanade “Work Redesigned” study of 600 executives, business leaders and IT leaders worldwide, 61% of companies report that most employees use personal computing devices at work. While most are still using phones and tablets for basic tasks such as reading email and managing their calendars, more than a third of companies say employees use the devices for advanced tasks such as customer relationship management (CRM), project management, content creation, and data analysis. The 2013-2014 CedarCrestone HR Systems Survey echoes this trend, noting that mobile-enabled process adoption grew 67% since 2012 with the most use in payroll, recruiting and performance management. CedarCrestone predicts that mobile-enabled processes will almost double by 2014.

Modern HR leaders are tapping into this trend, enabling their employees to access HR applications on their smartphones and tablets for everything from basic self-service tasks that used to require assistance from HR—such as updating personal data or reviewing benefits—to more complex tasks such as analyzing headcount reports and reviewing employee performance data.

As this video from Newfield Exploration shows, mobile applications can also play a huge role in keeping managers and employees aligned on objectives and performance goals, providing staff with real-time access to critical information, and connecting colleagues when they are spread out among offices.

Oracle celebrates a successful Oracle CloudWorld in Bogotá

written by: Diana Tamayo Tovar

Oracle CloudWorld Bogotá began with scattered showers, rain and strong winds, inviting Colombians to spend a whole day in the social, mobile and complete world of Oracle Cloud. The event took place on November 6th with 807 attendees, 15 media representatives and 65 partners, who gathered to share the business value of Cloud along with Oracle executives and Colombian market leaders.

Line-of-business leaders in sales and marketing, customer service and support, HR and talent management, and finance and operations, shared their ideas with Colombian customers, giving them a chance to learn, discover and engage with the tools, trends and concepts of Cloud.

The highlights of the event included the presence of keynote speakers such as Bob Evans, Chief Communications Officer, and a customer testimonial session with top business leaders from insurance, finances, retail, communications and health Colombian industries, who shared their innovation experiences and success stories on workforce empowerment, talent management, cloud security, social engagement and productivity, providing best case scenarios on how Oracle has helped them transform their business with technologies like cloud, social collaboration and mobile applications.

The keynote session was preceded by a customer success story from one of the largest virtual network operator in the country, providing an interesting case study of mobile banking innovation and a great customer testimonial of the importance of cross industry strategies and cloud technology.

The event provided five different tracks on the main trends of how companies communicate and engage with different audiences, providing a different perspective on the importance of empowering brands through their customers, trusting and investing in technology for growth, while Oracle University shared their knowledge with “Oracle Cloud Fundamentals” a training lesson regarding Java Cloud, Database Cloud and other Oracle Cloud product technologies and solutions.

The rainy day scenario included sideshows of aerial acrobatics and speed painting performances to recreate the environment of modern and flexible Cloud Solutions in a colorful and creative way.

Oracle CloudWorld Bogotá was a great opportunity to expose invalid cloud Myths and the main concerns of the Colombian customers towards cloud, considering IDC Latin America studies stating that 93% of Colombian business leaders are interested in cloud but only 47% understand its business value.

Spending a day in the cloud with 6 demogrounds stations, conference sessions, interesting case studies and customer testimonials will surely widen the endless market opportunities for Colombian customers, leaving them amazed with how Oracle Cloud works towards integration with other environments, non oracle applications, social media and mobile devices with bulletproof security infrastructure.

Recruiting Goes Social: How to Turn Connections—Yours and Your Employees’— into Quality Recruits: Part 2

 written by: Stephanie Lepow

In Part 1 of our post on social recruiting, we talked about tapping the goldmine of your employees’ social connections to generate high quality referrals. Getting an effective employee referral program in place will have a huge impact on your recruiting efforts. But that’s not the only social avenue to explore.

The next place to look for great talent is your own community of fans and followers. If you’ve nurtured your social networks and provided authentic and interesting information, you already have a pool of potential candidates who are passionate about your brand. Why not mine this group to see if your next top performer is waiting in the wings?

As with your employee referral program, success is in the details. Schedule targeted job postings to your social networks—distributing them in fans and followers’ Twitter streams and Facebook news feeds—and then let people apply for positions that interest them right then and there. Make it easy for potential candidates to view, search, and share jobs and to complete their application either on the network or via your social sourcing portal. Automation and ease of use are critical. With an automated program, you can schedule posts to your social networks ahead of time, space them out so you aren’t socially spamming your audience, and prioritize them so critical vacancies are posted first and more often. And with a user-friendly application process, you can get candidates right when they’re interested and you lessen the risk of them not following through.

You also want to take the opportunity to build up your talent community. Your fans and followers may not see their perfect job listed today but your postings may spark the idea of working for you later down the line. Encourage them to sign up for your talent community and allow them to set alerts based on criteria such as skill sets or job locations. When a matching job opens up, they’ll automatically be notified via email. This is a great way to attract passive candidates who may not be looking for their next opportunity until it conveniently lands in their lap.

Oracle Cloud IaaS: Compute and Object Storage

As another Oracle OpenWorld winds down, I’d like to reflect on some news at this year’s conference that was particularly interesting. If you read my blog post on Tuesday, you already saw the announcement about the new Oracle Cloud Database as a Service (DBaaS), WebLogic as a Service, and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offerings that will expand the Oracle Cloud portfolio. I’d like to drill down a bit on IaaS in particular. This morning, I attended Chris Pinkham’s (SVP of Development, Oracle Cloud) general session which focused on the topic. Some of you may recognize Chris not only as one of the co-founders of Nibula, a cloud infrastructure management company acquired by Oracle earlier this year, but also as one of original creators of the Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).  Clearly, Chris has not changed his penchant for innovation because he’s leading the charge to bring enterprise IaaS to the Oracle Cloud.

During his session, Chris shared some details about the new general purpose compute and storage services in the Oracle Cloud. Named the Oracle Compute Cloud and the Oracle Object Storage Cloud, both will scale elastically and support any type of workload. Because both services are general purpose, they’ll provide customers with a lot of flexibility and administrative control over the apps they deploy in the cloud. The Oracle Compute Cloud is compatible with OpenStack Nova and provides virtual CPUs that make deploying applications fast and easy. It comes with built-in elastic block storage in the form of direct attached, network attached, or DBMS-backed storage that’s persistent and portable between other services within the Oracle Cloud. The Oracle Object Storage Cloud also scales elastically and is compatible for OpenStack Swift to support Java and REST APIs.

Chris was joined on stage by Chris Brown (CTO, OPSCODE) who demo’d an integration between Oracle Cloud and Chef, an open source systems and cloud infrastructure automation framework. That was followed by a demo of a Ruby on Rails app running on the Oracle Cloud by Rob Walters (CTO of Engine Yard).  It was very cool to see the openness and flexibility of the Oracle Cloud to support such interoperability and diverse workloads.

I know there’s a lot more to come in the Oracle Cloud and that what we’re seeing now is just the beginning of the exciting new capabilities that are on the way. Stay tuned to this blog and like us on Facebook to keep up to date.


Recruiting Goes Social: How to Turn Connections—Yours and Your Employees’— into Quality Recruits: Part 1

written by: Stephanie Lepow

The cloud isn’t the only technology innovation to change the way we work—consider social. If you’re a recruiter, you know that social has changed the game. So how do you make it work for you?

It’s not just about the sheer volume of people on social media, it’s about the fact that by using smart social outreach, you can more easily zero in quality talent, in less time and for less money than you’d spend using traditional channels. Rather than hunting for the needle in the haystack that is the ideal recruit, top candidates will come to you.

Sound too good to be true? Let’s take a look at one way to make this work:

Tap the goldmine of your employees’ social networks
LinkedIn is traditionally thought of as the work network but don’t discount Facebook or other networks when it comes to finding great talent through your employees. Your employees are connected to a lot of people online and that can quickly fill your talent coffers.  
If you have 2,000 employees with an average of 100 social connections each and those connections have an additional 100 connections each, 20 million people could potentially see your job posting—for free.   Even if only a fraction share and view your post, you still have incredible reach.

When you start with your employees, you also have an automatic filter in place. Your employees know your company culture and they want to protect their professional reputation. Compare this to a job board where anyone can apply—giving you piles of irrelevant resumes to sort through.

In Survey.com research commissioned by SelectMinds, referrals were found to be the top choice for external sourcing for quality, speed and cost.

To maximize employee referrals, create an easy and automated program so you can match the right positions with the right employees (rather than blasting your entire workforce with every opening),  create targeted campaigns, track who brings in the best referrals, and make it simple for employees to share jobs, identify and recommend qualified connections, and see the results of their efforts.

Oracle and Microsoft: Partners in the Enterprise Cloud

Back in late June, Oracle and Microsoft announced a new partnership designed to help customers embrace cloud computing by providing greater choice and flexibility when deploying Oracle software. As an extension of its commitment to support multiple platforms, Oracle would certify and support Oracle applications, middleware, database, Java, and Oracle Linux on Windows Server Hyper-V and Windows Azure. Microsoft would offer Java, Oracle Database, and Oracle WebLogic Server to Windows Azure customers. Also, Oracle would offer Oracle Linux to Windows Azure customers. You can review all key elements of the partnership announcement by reading my blog post about it or the press release. Whether you’re in IT, a software industry analyst, or just a techie like me, you knew this was big news.

Now fast forward just a few short months and here comes more good news. Today at Oracle OpenWorld 2013, it was announced that Oracle software including Java, Oracle Database, and Oracle WebLogic Server is now available for preview in Windows Azure. During his partner keynote presentation, Brad Anderson, Microsoft’s Corporate VP of Cloud and Enterprise Engineering, discussed the benefits of being able to deploy and run Oracle’s mission critical software on a Microsoft-based public, private, or hybrid cloud. There was even a demo of how easy it was to deploy Oracle software using pre-configured images from the Windows Azure image gallery. The full list of available Oracle software images is available here
