  • LNS Research Blog by Matthew Littlefield, Oracle Value Chain Summit Highlights Need for IT and Business Transformation
    Distribution rights do not expire
    "Oracle has taken the hard road when it comes to moving towards the cloud. Rather than re-platforming existing applications to the cloud, Oracle is rebuilding applications from the bottom up. This is no small feat, especially when considering the number of successful legacy customers on applications like Oracle JD Edwards and Oracle’s Agile PLM. As Oracle is building these new Cloud applications it is also taking a unique approach to multi-tenancy, differentiating between multi-tenancy at the database vs. application layer, to again help address some of the issues identified above around flexibility, speed, and user adoption."

    ..."And although other areas of enterprise applications have moved quickly to the cloud and have been addressed by many enterprise application vendors through acquisition, in the value chain we are still at the early adopter stage and as Oracle releases more and more capabilities in these areas over the coming years, it may be well timed with the appetite of the broad market."
