"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.

Can your cloud provider keep up with your modern business?

This week at OOW we gained a wealth of information. At a high level we got to hear from many technology experts and industry analysts on the era of digital disruption and how these no longer “new” technologies “cloud” “social and mobile” are taking over the way we do business. Old applications just can’t measure up. As CEO Mark Hurd said it best during his keynote on Monday morning, most of these “old applications are pre-internet, pre-cloud, pre-mobile and pre-social. They don’t allow for flexible upgrades or other capabilities that are a must have in today’s modern digital age”.

Amidst the buzz around Oracle’s modern cloud offerings, Oracle made another announcement regarding its innovative Customer2Cloud program. Here is a quick summary in case you missed the details. Oracle install base customers can now easily migrate to the cloud by reallocating their existing unused seats and support spend to moving their applications to the cloud. In addition, to removing financial barriers, Oracle offers rapid start-up services and packed integrations to ensure a successful transition to the cloud. The best part? The program is available for all Oracle ERP, EPM, HCM and CRM customers. With Oracle’s new Customer2Cloud program, you can now start achieving all the real benefits of modern cloud applications for your business- faster innovation, lower costs and a better experience for your customers.

Where do you go next? There are many cloud providers in the marketplace today. How do you choose the one that is best for your business? A cloud provider should be more than provider. They should be a partner that you can trust for the long term. They should be able to support your business along its journey to innovation, expansion and competitive edge in the marketplace. With Oracle’s Customer2Cloud program and modern cloud applications, you can be on your way to the cloud in no time.

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.

  • Oracle’s Cloud Computing Strategy: Your Strategy, Your Cloud, Your Choice (CON1980)
    As enterprise adoption of cloud computing accelerates, organizations must have a strategy and a plan for moving to the cloud. What should you put into public clouds? Should you create a private cloud? Should you use cloud applications, platform, or infrastructure? This session explores best practices and helps attendees define their own roadmap to the ideal cloud environment, whether in a private, public, or hybrid cloud. It examines the trade-offs between different cloud models—and how Oracle’s complete offering can meet the needs of any organization.
  • Cloud Odyssey: A Hero’s Quest (CON1977)
    The time has come for humanity’s first interstellar trek to Terranuvem, the cloud planet, and Chief Engineer Cyrus Agarwal has been chosen to ready a ship for the voyage.

Oracle Managed Cloud Services Earns Elite Status for Federal Deployments

Oracle Corp. has been approved to deliver a sophisticated new type of highly secure managed cloud services to federal customers that will help them rapidly and confidently comply with "Federal Cloud First" initiatives.

Three federal agencies - the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, and General Services Administration - plus an outside company, participated in the rigorous review of solutions from technology vendors.  Having met those stringent requirements, Oracle's Managed Cloud Services was granted provisional authority to operate under the federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, or FedRAMP.

This new status makes Oracle Managed Cloud Services the first private-cloud services provider to be given authority to offer federal customers a Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering using a hybrid-cloud environment encompassing both private cloud and community cloud.

Because Oracle's advanced cloud-computing technology allows it to offer a single-tenant model dedicated to U.S. government customers, and because Oracle Managed Cloud Services has earned the FedRAMP authorization, those departments and agencies can rapidly transition to a managed private government cloud.

"Oracle is committed to protecting the information assets and sensitive data of our U.S. Government customers," said Gail Coury, Vice President of Risk Management for Oracle Managed Cloud Services.  "Our FedRAMP provisional authorization exemplifies our continuing commitment to helping our U.S. Government customers satisfy their security requirements."

In that context, the FedRAMP provisional authorization becomes "a critical milestone in Oracle's efforts to implement and deploy secure private-cloud environments to our U.S. Government customers and partners," said Rick Cirigliano, Vice President of Public Sector for Oracle Managed Cloud Services.  "This provisional authorization adds a great deal of leverage to agencies in their efforts to comply with Federal Cloud First and Shared First Initiatives."

Oracle Managed Cloud Services gives its U. S. Government customers access to a full range of services for both software and hardware, including infrastructure, platform, and Oracle applications as well as certain approved third party applications.  These managed services include applications such as ERP, CRM, and HCM; hardware and facilities setup/configuration; application management, testing, monitoring and patching; as well as incident management and problem resolution, technical and functional service desk, point upgrades, security, and disaster recovery.

FedRAMP is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services.

FedRAMP uses a "do once, use many" approach to security assessments, thereby saving time and cost while providing full security transparency.

FedRAMP's primary governance group consists of the CIOs of the Departments of Defense and Homeland Security and the GSA.  More information about the FedRAMP program can be found at http://www.fedramp.gov.

Why More (Cloud Applications) Really Is Better

It doesn’t matter that I’ve done it a dozen times before. I am still amazed at how easy it is to submit a claim for out-of-network expenses through my health insurance provider. I log onto their web site, enter information from the physician’s statement, hit submit, and the money is in my bank account three days later. When my husband suggested that we switch to his health plan to save some money, I refused. I simply can’t go back to the days of printing claim forms, scanning receipts and faxing in documentation.  Like everyone else, I want speed and simplicity. With two kids, a horse, and 2 spoiled dogs to take care of, can you blame me?

Today, people expect that digital experience. For many companies, cloud applications offer a quick on-ramp to a digital way of doing business. For example, you can find highly qualified candidates faster through social recruiting. You can target messages and promotions to individual customers with cross-channel marketing. You can use a mobile device to generate a quote for your customer while you’re meeting with them.

So far, most companies rely on cloud applications to address a specific business opportunity. Eventually, though, you’ll want to integrate these cloud applications into a larger process. Let’s say you’d like to recruit sales people who have a greater likelihood of becoming high performers. You’d need to identify your current top sales performers, create a “top sales performer” profile, recruit people based on that profile, and then measure how they perform. This is no longer just about social recruiting. It involves sales, HR, talent management, and finance.

Think back to my claims processing example. I’m no health care expert, but I know that level of service requires different systems working together – including the customer portal, provider database, claims processing, benefits tracking, reimbursements and accounting. It also requires master data management, security, analytics, and integration.

At Oracle, we say we have more enterprise cloud applications than anyone else does. But what does that really mean? It means that we think business needs both speed AND standardization. You get speed and innovation by adding cloud modules to your existing on premise portfolio. When you’re ready, you also get the benefit of standardization by migrating core transaction systems to the cloud as well. Our core Fusion cloud applications for CRM, HR, ERP and SCM all share a single data model, single sign-on, business intelligence and integration framework.

So the next time you’re caught in vendor hype over the cloud (mea culpa, we’re all guilty of this), think about everything that goes into making an exceptional business experience. It’s a combination of rapid innovation AND standardization.

Questions You Should Ask Your Cloud Provider

By Mike Vilimek

wow

The shift from complex and costly on-premise business software to flexible and more cost-effective cloud solutions is not only underway, it’s inevitable. The business advantages both in terms of cost and functionality are simple too great to ignore. Whether it’s HCM, ERP, or CX, businesses will continue to shift away from managing on-premise versions of these systems to cloud solutions. But are all cloud solutions the same?

ICYMI...Oracle Cloud at Cloud Expo NYC

In case you missed it, the Oracle Cloud Solutions team had a significant presence at this month's Cloud Expo conference in New York City. As a Platinum Sponsor of this year's conference, not only did Sandra Cheevers deliver the Day Two keynote about Cloud Odyssey which chronicles a journey to private cloud, but Marty Gubar also presented a general session on Oracle's Big Data strategy. Oracle's cloud strategy and offerings were also well represented through a host of technical sessions and our demo booth.

As in previous years, there was a very good turnout for the conference not only with respect to attendees, but also from a vendor perspective. Something I've noticed at each Cloud Expo I've attended, and this year was no exception, is that the level of understanding of Cloud within the collective audience had increased over the previous year. In other words, I'm coming across fewer and fewer Cloud "newbies" at these events than in years past. It seems to me the average Cloud Expo attendee has moved on from basic concepts and is now more interested in what's coming next in the Cloud. It shouldn't come as a total shock since Cloud computing has been a hot topic for years and unless you've been hiding under a rock, you're bound to have been exposed to Cloud in your professional or personal lives.

While most people have a general understanding of what cloud computing is and what it can/can't do, many organizations are still trying to come to grips with how to best take advantage of the Cloud in an effective and economical way. You see, there is no shortage of potential and promise with respect to the benefits that Cloud can deliver, but it's the realization of those benefits that is still proving to be so elusive for many. There are new cloud technologies and strategies that are being developed every year and I'll be the first to acknowledge it's not all just coming from Oracle. After all, hearing different perspectives and about different cloud experiences can only broaden one's horizons. That's why conferences like Cloud Expo are as beneficial as ever, whether you're just getting started with cloud computing or even if you consider yourself to be an expert in Cloud.

Stay tuned to this blog to hear about upcoming Oracle and third party Cloud events where Oracle Cloud Solutions will be next. We could be coming to a city near you and we'll hope to see you there. Until then, here's a few pics of Oracle Cloud Solutions @ Cloud Expo...enjoy!
