What an amazing edition of the Oracle ‘In Touch’ PartnerCast we have seen! The recent broadcast was packed with hot topics including a review of the new X5 generation of Engineered Systems and Oracle Database Appliances. In case you were unable to tune in, we encourage you to catch up on demand by following this link:
David Callaghan was joined by experts Linda Mihalic, Senior Director, Oracle EMEA Alliances and Channels Systems Sales Leader and newly appointed VP for Cloud, Oracle EMEA Alliances and Channels, Jean-Marc Gottero. We also enjoyed live updates on recent developments from each of the EMEA regions with a review of the past quarter and some very interesting case studies we can all learn and develop from.
Patrick Fenton, Partner, KPMG, came into the studio to speak about how partners can prosper from a relationship with Oracle and highlighted "Oracle and KPMG have a longstanding durable relationship. What the combination of KPMG and Oracle can bring in the SaaS/Cloud world is going to be a game changer for our relationship and I'm hugely excited about that prospect."
Paul Thompson, Commercial Senior Director, Oracle EMEA Alliances and Channels, joined us via a live video chat, in which he spoke about the commercial gains to be had from the Cloud proposition and noted that, “all of the PaaS services, and the underlying IaaS required for PaaS, can be transacted through Partners, be it metered or unmetered.”
