The Top 100 Executives Of 2016

Each year, CRN's annual Top 100 Executives list singles out the IT channel’s most effective leaders who play an integral role in shaping the industry - whether by driving cultural shifts or forging new routes to success. This year, CRN has recognized Oracle’s Bill Swales, GVP of North America Alliances and Channels, as one of those leaders.

Bill earned this recognition for the profound changes he's implementing in the Oracle Channel, which include increased training & enablement resources as well as expanded lines of communication by garnering necessary partner feedback via "Listening Tours" and the Partner Advisory Board. Bill’s energy and enthusiasm is quickly spreading throughout the North America partner community and his presence was very well-received at the FY17 NA Partner Sales Kickoff held at Oracle Headquarters in June.

Join us in congratulating Bill on this impressive achievement with CRN. And learn how Oracle is facilitating new levels of support & resources to help partners evolve their business models and increase revenue.

OPN @ Xchange 2015

The Oracle PartnerNetwork team just got back from a great couple days at The Channel Company’s 20th Annual Xchange 2015 conference in Washington, DC on August 9-11.  Following the conference theme of “Next Steps,” the OPN team shaped their messaging around the huge opportunities afforded to partners as Oracle seeks to become the #1 cloud software company.

OPN was proud to showcase our 2015 CRN Annual Report Card (ARC) Award wins at Xchange. We were thrilled to be recognized in the Data & Information Management and Business Analytics categories this year.

There were a number of highlights during the action-packed 2.5 days. OPN Director Steve Lemme lured solution providers to our booth with a demo of the Oracle Cloud platform, and WWA&C Director Tim Dwyer presented on Oracle Cloud offerings for partners in front of 250+ attendees.  We really enjoyed building relationships with current OPN partners at a private dinner meeting, as well as engaging with so many new faces on the Solutions Pavilion floor. OPN also had a blast celebrating 20 years of Xchange with the Channel Company - we loved the craft beer and food truck themed reception.

Looking forward to the Best of Breed and NexGen Cloud conferences coming up later this year. Thanks for a rewarding and FUN conference, Channel Company!
