AWS and Salesforce may say 'Sayonara' to Oracle database - CIO Dive

AWS and Salesforce may say 'Sayonara' to Oracle database - CIO Dive | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
Salesforce and Amazon are both planning on entirely eliminating Oracle software from crucial business systems and replacing it "with open-source database software alternatives," reports The Information. Oracle Founder and CTO Larry Ellison's colorful remarks about the companies in the past is said to have impacted the move. 
Amazon already transitioned two internal databases that take care of its e-commerce operation to open-source NoSQL, reports Bloomberg. Salesforce is developing an internal database — code-named "Sayonara" — for its customer management and marketing automation software. Salesforce plans to end its reliance on Oracle by 2023. 
Oracle's database is currently considered the top in the world, according to The Information, but its reputation is overshadowed by price. There are now cheaper alternatives for customers.

Oracle Pitches 'Power of One' for Marketing Cloud -- Using Its Own Marketing Cloud

Oracle Pitches 'Power of One' for Marketing Cloud -- Using Its Own Marketing Cloud | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it

"In an effort to get attention in the crowded marketing cloud arena, Oracle is launching a new campaign built from the ground up using its own marketing tech solution.


Oracle's b-to-b campaign, called "The Power of One" is in effect, a case study of its marketing cloud, using its own platform across multiple capabilities in its stack to create a single coordinating story as an example of what potential clients can do.


The global campaign is the first to tap Oracle's marketing solution in this way, especially in the microsite where reports, guides and case studies are not only organized by capability. It also uses progressive profiling and retargeting to create personalized experiences for each customer -- just like the kind of experience it wants to give marketers for their own customers."

Recent Investments From Oracle And Salesforce Signal AI May Be Ready To Impact Marketing - Demand Gen Report | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
Recent pushes by both Salesforce and Oracle into the artificial intelligence (AI) space have stirred conversations around its potential in the B2B landscape. Both companies are expecting AI to provide users technology that can continuously learn and adapt to enhance how marketing and sales teams produce and execute campaigns.

With the ability to make intelligent decisions based on data and behavior triggers, Oracle states that it will help users streamline business tasks and provide them with individualized recommendations for engaging with prospective customers. The announcement, named Adaptive Intelligent Applications, was made at the company’s annual OpenWorld Conference and came shortly after Salesforce unveiled its Einstein project, which will incorporate AI into its core cloud offerings.

Both moves highlight the growing importance of analytics within B2B organizations, and advancements in technology position users to maximize the data they are gathering from target accounts and buyers.

If you're not completely invested in MarTech, you're going to be way behind competitors.

News Analysis: Oracle’s $9.3B Acquisition Of Netsuite Is About Cloud Consolidation - Enterprise Irregulars

News Analysis: Oracle’s $9.3B Acquisition Of Netsuite Is About Cloud Consolidation - Enterprise Irregulars | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
Oracle’s 9.3B acquisition of Netsuite came as no surprise to valley insiders.  The surprise came as how badly Oracle sought cloud revenue and to bring a friendly partner back into the family.  Constellation sees the following for the buy side:

  • Battle for cloud revenue continues.  Oracle as with every cloud vendor is seeking to grow their subscription revenues.  Netsuite brings almost 800M in revenue and grows the overall market share.
  • Serves the mid market and divisions in an end to end capacity. Netsuite gives the Oracle customer an integrated cloud ERP, CRM, and commerce suite.
  • Addresses gaps in Oracle’s Industry Cloud strategy.  Netsuite’s core has been strong in manufacturing, retail, commerce, and professional services.  While Oracle addresses these products in an on-premises model, Netsuite’s cloud approach fills holes in Oracle’s cloud strategy in key verticals.

Here’s Why Oracle’s Acquisition of Content Sharing/Visitor Tracker AddThis Adds Up - Marketing Land

Here’s Why Oracle’s Acquisition of Content Sharing/Visitor Tracker AddThis Adds Up - Marketing Land | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
The purchase of the Vienna, Virginia-based company, which offers content sharing buttons, audience tracking and content recommendations for websites, joins BlueKai and Datalogix in Oracle’s data stable.

The AddThis purchase is “an incredibly interesting move,” Forrester Research analyst Fatemeh Khatibloo told me. With this newest addition to Oracle’s growing data family, she said, the tech giant is “way in front” in the data race with such major marketing clouds as Salesforce and Adobe.

The reason? Oracle is now stacking up major sources of consumer and user data, she said, going beyond Adobe’s Audience Marketplace data exchange or Salesforce’s analytics cloud and lead-oriented Data.com. The closer competitive match to Oracle, she said, might be data powerhouse Acxiom.

The race, she said, comes down to how many sources of data you can offer users of your marketing platform, their quality and the ability to combine them into new insights about audiences.
