    products to suit the demands of Indian customers Over the last six months we have doubled our sales and pre sales team members and we continue to grow that Previously we had teams working only in Bengaluru Delhi Mumbai and Chennai Presently we have expanded in Kolkata Ahmedabad Hyderabad and Pune We have also recruited special channel managers to revamp our strategy and outreach for hardware channel partners It is evident that we have strong presence in the India geography In terms of products we believe that the launch of M7 systems in India will help us to increase market share to a great extent We are certain that they will see great adoption as it has the potential to completely abolish the exploitation of security vulnerabilities From which verticals do you see demand generation from Oracle traditionally has been very strong in banking and financial sectors In addition to this we are witnessing growth in telecom manufacturing e tailers and media entertainment sectors With Digital India programme gaining steam the government sector is another area on which Oracle is concentrating on Oracle recently launched the new M7 systems What does this mean for Oracle and what makes it so unique We see a lot of growth coming from our systems business in India and we are witnessing a great need for security today across key industries like banking telecom manufacturing e retailers etc The M7 systems are the newest generation of processors in the SPARC family The SPARC family has been there for a long time ever since the acquisition of Sun Microsystems by Oracle The M7 isn t only the most powerful version of SPARC technology to date it s also one of the most sophisticated processors on the market The M7 incorporates advanced software techniques guard against

  • Businesses are shifting towards an app-only model: Mitesh Agarwal, Oracle India | The Financial Express
    to be able to extend their current skill sets and tools to embrace mobile paradigms develop new types of mobile apps and spearhead strategic innovative endeavours for the enterprise What we are seeing is that Mobility is taking the same trajectory as that taken by the Web when it came into being Today nobody questions the need for a web presence Similarly time has come when it is imperative to have a mobile presence for all applications and services What kinds of challenges are being faced by the app developers in India Customers equate the experience they get via a mobile or tablet app with the quality of the brand behind it The design functionality performance and security of apps today have become the new weapons in the battle to attract and retain customers and businesses that do not arm themselves appropriately have little chance of coming out on top Poor app performance and speed are clearly deal breakers for a company when it comes to their apps While some businesses would argue that part of this lies out of their hands as the strength of data networks is of course not their responsibility in most cases it will fall to them to develop apps that fulfill customers requirements for functionality without being so clunky as to always require above average network connectivity to work This may extend to providing users with some offline functionality or background synchronisation options in instances when network performance is lacking Developers must also consider the impact of mobile traffic and load on back end systems that weren t originally designed for mobile apps Ideally mobile integration should be an extension of the service oriented architecture SOA that is already in place in an enterprise This will help bring down cost and provide greater agility to business application And then there s the cloud by abstracting back end functions in the cloud businesses can free up their resources to simultaneously focus on front end development and develop strong mobile business models Another major challenge revolves around ensuring data security With people accessing information and sharing personal details rather indiscriminately today via smartphones tablets and their personal computers companies will need to take proactive measures to protect their data No longer will simple encryption firewalls and network security controls alone do the trick Companies will need to control access from the inside out and at every layer of their IT from the database that processes data to the mobile devices tied to the system What are the most lucrative segments verticals for mobile application companies Today mobile apps have become must haves for every modern business and organisation that aspire to productively engage with their employee or reach and attract customers While retail especially e commerce and the banking have been at the fore front of capitalising from the burgeoning app economy sectors like manufacturing airlines healthcare and government are joining the band wagon The adoption of mobile apps is pervasive across every segment and vertical

  • Oracle is way ahead of others in cloud business: Mitesh Agarwal | The Financial Express
    is very different if you are not going to allow me to express myself on a social forum and you would have blocked my Internet access to one of the social forums then today s millennials won t take it lightly If HR systems don t understand this what is going to happen is companies will start seeing attrition Companies are using PaaS to start developing these interfaces that they have in their existing core HR system nobody is asking them to change All we are saying is keep it as it is and start developing extensions start developing a social extension Big Data extension analytics extension that is fueling huge growth on PaaS How will the new products strengthen Oracle s cloud play It has strengthened us in a few areas I will mention top two or three areas First thing it will do is it makes Oracle a complete cloud provider It is important to explain why I keep emphasising on complete today you can provide all services and therefore are simplifying customer s lives even more You can provide them with business service you can provide them with PaaS and you can provide them with IaaS So they do not need to go to five different vendors to decide how to integrate all this That is the biggest advantage with this launch The second the fundamental question that customers have asked us for a number of years OK cloud is great but if I want to come back to on premise for whatever reason new company acquisition or business diversification or business integration etc how do I do that No cloud provider in the world can answer that question They will simply tell you sir why do you want to come back No what if I want to come back It could be regulation it could be anything Today we do allow them to come back and go back again So you can keep doing this integration between on premise datacentre and the remote datacentre The third thing that we have solved is zero proprietary solution Everything is open standard based so whatever you used to buy from us on premise by license you can buy on cloud So there is no differentiation between these two for us as far as we are concerned That is the only part where we will say that there is no differentiation Everywhere else we will say there is a lot of differentiation Whatever we have developed is actually keeping the customer s interest in mind as opposed to keeping Oracle s interest in mind What is your go to market strategy to increase Oracle s cloud footprint in India We are going to go after all the major industries and the biggest place that opens up for us is the small and medium business The biggest space that opens up is the consumers who in the past would not avail of Oracle technologies because either it was unaffordable or they
