FEATURES

The Virtual Enterprise

By David A. Kelly
Virtualization—of desktop, server, or storage resources—requires a reliable infrastructure, solid plan, and strategic management. The payoffs include IT flexibility and efficiency, as well as server consolidation and lower energy costs. Learn how Oracle’s desktop-to-datacenter solutions can virtualize your enterprise.

Strategize. Plan. Execute.

By Marta Bright
Planning for the future—based on analytics rather than guesswork—is important for both public and private organizations. See how new features of Oracle’s enterprise performance management applications can improve confidence in financial reporting and enhance budget management and profitability.
