Future Of The IT Labor Market: An Optimist's View
Oracle, December 6th, 2016
"If you're an armchair economist like me," writes Chuck Hollis in Forbes, "you've spent time studying labor markets: how they're structured and how they evolve. When it comes to the IT industry, we have no shortage of analysts prognosticating the future of various technologies and vendors, but there's almost no insight into the future of the people who make the technology work.

It's relevant because change is in the air. In a word: cloud..."

Mexican Telecom Gains Competitive Advantage With Cloud-Based CRM
Oracle, December 8th, 2016
Monica Mehta writes in Forbes, "For 25 years, one company dominated Mexico's telecommunications sector. Tariffs were high, and adoption of new services was low.

For instance, if I need someone to repaint my house I would assume whichever contractor has been around the longest would do the best job. I'm no expert in the area, but sometimes you just need to make a decision based on a gut feeling or a quick comparison of your options. Worst case, my walls would be missing a coat of paint..."

Orchestrator at GitHub
By Shlomi Noach, December 8th, 2016
Shlomi Noach blogs, "GitHub uses MySQL to store its metadata: Issues, Pull Requests, comments, organizations, notifications and so forth. While git repository data does not need MySQL to exist and persist, GitHub's service does. Authentication, API, and the website itself all require the availability of our MySQL fleet.

Our replication topologies span multiple data centers and this poses a challenge not only for availability but also for manageability and operations..."

5 Cloud Lessons Learned: Tales from Oracle's Customer Success Managers
By Chris Murphy, December 6th, 2016
Chris writes, "AnnaMarie Stroh sees a cloud software project and thinks of Dorothy's ruby slippers: a few clicks, and that cloud project could be gone. Poof.

That's how easy the cloud makes it to start, or end, a tech project.

And that ease of starting and stopping is the reason people like Stroh play an increasingly important role for cloud companies like Oracle, that of 'customer success manager.' As an Oracle employee, Stroh works in support of just two Oracle Cloud application customers, making sure they're getting the most value possible out of their cloud app experience, and therefore are likely to remain customers..."
