\"Oracle has a larger set of software as a service than any other company software or cloud, cloud options for ERP, human resources, corporate performance and supply chain,\" said Ellison.
Strengthening the focus on cloud comes in the wake of a fall on the set of software sales, which in the last quarter dropped 17% compared to the same period in the previous year. On the other hand, in the same period the cloud services revenue increased 29 percent.
For Lopez, the cost reduction proposal by applications in the cloud are the flagship to enter in medium and small businesses, with restrictions on investments or that dropped the Oracle as a supplier of large organizations.

One such strategy is the expansion of Customer Success, customer tracking cloud strategy, a service that, according to Lopez, no other provider offers segment similar to Oracle.

According to Lopez, the multinational's plan is to have a compact structure to meet this demand, with a consultant for every 15 customers, in a joint effort between Oracle and your ecosystem of partners.
" is something that will also require a change in our sales and consulting force, as we will be increasingly concerned with the process of business than the products themselves, " Lopez.
Although the new strategy is based mainly on cloud portfolio, declared new pride of the multinational, the VP emphasizes that this support structure will also be at the service of customers of hybrid or private infrastructures.
" our goal is to provide a growth of over 100% for our ecosystem, with our partners ready for new and traditional architectures. We will attend to all ", finished Lopez.
