There was a buzz in the air at Oracle CloudWorld in San Francisco last week at the Westin on Market Street. It was a great opportunity to hear Oracle's strategy for the Cloud across Applications such as ERP, HCM, Eloqua and other as well as Oracle's strategy for Mobile. There was something for everyone with a floor dedicated to demos and numerous sessions for all interested. CloudWorld in San Francisco is just one of several locations worldwide where this event is being held. CloudWorld is slated to take place in Melbourne, Moscow, Beijing and Chicago - so if you missed last week, not to worry, it's coming to a city near you!
CEO, Larry Ellison delivered an energizing keynote in the afternoon to a packed audience. He focused on Oracle's investment in HCM and why it sees this is an important initiative and one that requires additional staff resources and greater innovation in order for us to maintain our leadership position in the market. Following his keynote, there was a good amount of time set aside for Q & A from the audience. Among the many sessions, the one not to be missed was delivered by Ray Wang, Principal atConstellation Research. He had a very well attended session that covered what a sales cloud-related product should entail (feature, function and address which business needs) .
