Trends 2015: Oracle Experts Weigh In

Yes, I realize it's the middle of February and not the first week of January. But I was leafing through Oracle Profit Online yesterday and found lots of valuable insight from Oracle experts about what to expect this year in this Special Report, Trends to Watch in 2015. The article includes links to insight on just about every technology subject that is (or maybe should be) on your mind this year--cloud, security, innovation, and big data, to name a few.

Of special interest to me is Trends in the Workplace: Gamification in the Enterprise since I am currently co-authoring an eBook on Modern Best Practice for Work Life Solutions (publishing in mid March). Given today's challenges of hiring and retaining top talent, many organizations are seeking ways to keep their employees more engaged and happier. It's a fascinating subject and I expect that Work Life technology solutions will soon become an important component of Modern Best Practice for HR and Talent.

Modern Best Practice exploits new capabilities made possible by cloud, mobile, social, analytics, big data, and the internet of things, making it possible for your organization to achieve more, faster and with fewer resources.  It is flexible, supports growth and innovation, and enables new ways to achieve consistently superior performance.

The views expressed here are my own, and not necessarily those of Oracle.

For Oracle's JD Edwards Customers--IT's Getting Better All The Time

By Jim Lein, Programs Management Sr. Principal, Oracle Midsize Programs.

The annual JD Edwards Oracle Profit Magazine Special Edition was released this week. Look for the print copy in your mailbox or access the online version here.

I entered the software industry when I joined JD Edwards in 1999. The next six years were a wild roller coaster ride for employees, partners, and--most unfortunately--for many of our customers. (Not entirely my fault BTW).

In this Special Edition, I immediately gravitated to Aaron Lazenby's interview with Lyle Ekdahl, Group VP and General Manager of Oracle JD Edwards, "Better All The Time". 

I met Lyle in 2003 when he joined PeopleSoft to guide JD Edwards' CRM development. He dropped by my cube (it was a double-wide cube, mind you) to explain his strategy. It was an intense first impression. Passionate, competent, personable.

From my discussions with partners and customers, it is clear that for Oracle's JD Edwards customers it is getting better all the time.

Now I've got that darn Beatle's song stuck in my head...
