For Matthew F., Director and Lead of Security Competitive Intelligence on the Global Technology Competitive Intelligence team, the move to Oracle came five years ago after spending time in the startup space. “After being part of several smaller startups, I welcomed the opportunity to join a consistently winning team. Oracle is a powerhouse in the space, with tremendous resources and talent. We have the ability to adapt quickly to changing conditions, and we’re backed by enough financial capital to ensure that we can always make the right decisions for our business and customers,” Matthew says.
As an industry analyst covering the Security space for Oracle globally, Matthew’s job is to “know the Security vendors, which products are complementary or compete against Oracle’s portfolio, what trends are emerging, and how Oracle can improve its ability to compete in the Security space.” Matthew adds, “It’s interesting work because it requires a deep understanding of how the technology works together, and also the ability to translate how technologies can be applied to meet various business requirements. Ultimately, it’s about adding value to our customers’ bottom lines, and helping the field to understand how to best position Oracle to do that.”
Oracle’s resources and talent may help Matthew consistently win at his sprawling Security job, but his team’s nature also has a hand in making it possible. As Matthew explains, “Our team has visibility not only across the global landscape, but also into every strategic product area across Oracle. It’s a unique group in that we’re not caught up in the minutiae of only one market, geography, or technology. We have the opportunity to impact Oracle’s business globally.”
Last but not least, Matthew’s own attitude plays an important part in his career success at Oracle. Having won the Whatever It Takes Award, Matthew admits that “it feels good to be recognized for having the right attitude and commitment to our internal stakeholders. I use it as a reminder to always do whatever it takes to exceed expectations.”
