“The initiative was led jointly by the business and IT. We received excellent support from our partner and developer, Infosys. I think the foundation of our success was that it was a team-based transformation, and effective change management was pivotal.” —Peter Scougall, Chief of Staff for Global Sales, Telstra Global Enterprise and Services

“These [Oracle Data Integrator] interfaces provide a huge benefit for Shelf Drilling…. Otherwise, the company would have had to invest millions of dollars per rig each year for greater connectivity, which would still not allow the rig crews to access the system when the communications network was down.” —Mohammad Tauseef, Global Head, Oracle JD Edwards, Tata Consultancy Services

“At the end of the day, Eclipsys did a wonderful job. They hit it out of the park, and our website is one that I’d hold up to any in terms of responsiveness and design.”—Brian Anderson, Vice President of Operations and Chief Operations Officer at BC Transit

“We are working with our Diamond partners to ensure they have the right tools to implement Oracle Cloud solutions predictably and successfully. These partners have priority access to enablement opportunities to learn about the power of our cloud offerings.”—Troy Richardson, Senior Vice President, Strategic Alliances, Oracle

“Our goal is that every year we are reducing the costs to deploy all of our applications. Traditional systems integrators can have the opposite motivation, which is to make the project longer and more complex.”—Rod Johnson, Group Vice President of Oracle’s cloud applications business, on how Oracle challenges its partners
