“Oracle customers need networking solutions that span their data centers and global networks. By combining Oracle's technology portfolio with Corente's industry leading platform extending software-
defined networking to global networks, enterprises will be able to easily and securely deliver applications and cloud services to their globally distributed location.” —Edward Screven, Oracle’s Chief Corporate Architect

“Cloud computing provides enterprises cost-effective, flexible access to big data's enormous magnitudes of information. Big data on the cloud generates vast amounts of on-demand computing resources that comprehend best practice analytics.” —Satyendra Kumar Pasalapudi, a practice manager in the Infrastructure Managed Services Team at Apps Associates and an Oracle ACE

“Our approach all along has been to deploy software applications that are seamless to end users. The beauty of a cloud-based system is that much of the functionality takes place behind the scenes so we can focus on making sure users can access the data when they need it. This model greatly improves their efficiency.” —Tom Crane, chief HR and communications officer for Skanska in the United States

“It's a standard consideration when it comes to ERP deployment. The question to ask is, 'Why not Oracle Cloud?' rather than 'Why cloud?'”—Rondy C. Ng, senior vice president of application development at Oracle

“In India, whenever cloud is discussed, cost is of course important. However, cloud is also thought of within the context of India’s focus on achieving its developmental goals. Namely, how can cloud help India grow its economy and enhance its standing as a global leader in innovation?”—Sandeep Mathur, Managing Director, Oracle India Cloud Computing Is A Force Multiplier For Emerging Markets
