In the 2020 Magic Quadrant, Oracle is recognized for its completeness of vision and ability to execute. For omnichannel sales, we believe Oracle CX benefits from a rich ecosystem of applications, shared services, connected data, and common infrastructure. We go beyond point-to-point integrations that other vendors need to rely on; and instead deliver functionality that transcends application boundaries so our customers can run their business efficiently.

Our vision for the entire buying and selling ecosystem is what we call Responsive Selling, and it has its roots deep in our platform, connecting the entire customer experience across the front and back office:
