18 Apr 2017 Oracle's Hurd: Answer The Questions That Really Matter To Your Business [62684]
By Chris Murphy

Chris Murphy writes in Forbes, "Oracle CEO Mark Hurd tries to avoid broad tech industry jargon like 'big data analytics.' Instead, as a CEO, he wants to hear about a real business problem and how data analysis helps solve it.

Like this question, which he's pushing his own teams to answer:

'What kinds of people succeed at Oracle?' Hurd asked, speaking to HR leaders on April 11 at the Oracle HCM World conference in Boston.

Oracle has hired tens of thousands of people over the past five years as it grows, adding to its a massive employee data set. Do recent grads from certain universities, with certain GPAs, tend to do better at Oracle, or does the success of such hires have more to do with the manager they're assigned? 'What common corollaries are there among the people who succeed?' Hurd asked..."

12 Apr 2017 Oracle CEO: We Can Beat Amazon and Microsoft Without as Many Data Centers [62447]
Fortune, April 12th 2017

Barb Darrow writes in Fortune, "Conventional wisdom in the public cloud market is that there are three leaders: Amazon Web Services followed by Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform.

Those companies assemble and sell massive arrays of servers, storage, and networking to businesses-most of which don't want to build more of their own data centers. Towards that end, those three cloud superpowers alone spent roughly $31 billion last year to extend their data center capacity around the world, according to the Wall Street Journal, which tabulated that total from corporate filings.

By comparison, Oracle, which is making its own public cloud push, spent about $1.7 billion. To most observers, that looks like a stunning mismatch.

But Mark Hurd, Oracle's co-chief executive, would beg to differ. In his view, there are data centers and then there are data centers. And Oracle's data centers, he said, can be more efficient because they run Oracle hardware and supercharged databases..."

22 Mar 2017 OracleVoice: Hurd Predicts Demise Of Best-Of-Breed Technologies [61820]
By Michael Hickins

Michael writes, "If nothing else, cloud technology has simplified the IT landscape, reducing the pressure on businesses to manage hundreds of different applications for myriad different purposes. 'I don't think we'll return to the complexity we created in the past,' said Oracle CEO Mark Hurd during a keynote presentation on March 21 at Oracle Industry Connect here.

The current generation of Oracle financial, HR, and other applications that are used broadly across industries is built on the same code base, making it easier for those applications to interoperate, Hurd said. Oracle is 'working to do the same' for applications that address specific retail, hospitality, health sciences, and other industry needs, he said..."

17 Mar 2017 Hurd: Oracle Poised To Overtake Salesforce.com In Cloud Revenue [61606]
By Rob Preston

Rob writes, "Securing its position as the 'fastest-growing cloud company at scale,' Oracle reported that its combined software-as-a-service (SaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) revenues rose 73% in its fiscal third quarter, to $1.0 billion. Its total cloud revenues, including infrastructure as a service (IaaS), increased 62%, to $1.2 billion.

Oracle CEO Mark Hurd noted that the company's SaaS and PaaS revenues have grown more than three times faster than those of rival Salesforce.com during the last year. 'If these trends continue, where we are selling more SaaS and PaaS in absolute dollars AND growing dramatically faster, it's just a matter of when we catch and pass Salesforce.com in total cloud revenue,' Hurd said..."

By Rick O'Herron

Rick writes, "Oracle CEO Mark Hurd spoke last week to an audience of 30 veterans about the challenges in global IT and about Oracle's insatiable need for talent and leadership. He was followed by a panel of Oracle employees who are military veterans, who shared their experiences transitioning from the military to corporate life at Oracle.

The event was organized with BreakLine, an education and employment company that helps military veterans build careers in the private sector, including veterans looking to pivot into technology..."
