Happy Earth Day! I thought it appropriate to include a blog today about our upcoming 2014 Oracle Sustainability Innovation Awards, part of the Oracle Excellence Awards. These awards recognize customers and their partners who are using Oracle products to take an environmental lead as well as to reduce costs and improve business efficiencies using sustainable business practices. For example, a customer may use Oracle Self-Service E-Billing for paperless invoicing or Oracle Advanced Compression for reduced disk space and power usage. Nominations are due Friday June 20. These awards will be presented during Oracle OpenWorld 2014 in San Francisco by Oracle Chairman of the Board Jeff Henley. See this award information page for more details.
