As oracle programmers rewrite fresh codes for its cloud services, the company is scripting a new history. It is transforming itself into a cloud-first company. Some industry watchers might argue that it is a tad late in entering the realm of cloud, but Oracle will tell you it doesn’t matter; it is scaling up faster than all others.
“Oracle’s comparison with Salesforce or Workday is unfair and it’s not an apples-to-apples comparison. Unlike Oracle, Workday and Salesforce are not end-to-end suites but specialist suites,” says Sanchit Vir Gogia, Chief Analyst and CEO, Greyhound Research.
“India is a cost-conscious market. Therefore, in order to get it right, first, Oracle needs to go soft on its pricing and second, spell out a clear process of migration to the cloud so the existing on-premise customers don’t incur any contractual wastages,” says Gogia of Greyhound Research.
