Welcome and thank you for joining us today! Today we’ll talk about Oracle’s offering for partners and the great revenue opportunities when joining our partner ecosystem.
Partners are a critical channel for our comprehensive product portfolio. More than 40% of our revenue is through partners, and over 80% of the transactions are through partners. Clearly central to Oracle’s strategy. And, Over the past three years, Oracle’s indirect revenue has grown faster than Oracle’s direct revenue. We’ve got a growing channel ecosystem with tremendous partner opportunity.
To understand why Oracle is the best choice for an integrated system, first consider the alternative. A business or organization can buy all the pieces for the stack from different vendors—but no single vendor has all the parts. The result is a labor-intensive and expensive integration up front, and a system that will be costly to maintain and complicated and risky to upgrade. Service and support will be fragmented for the life of the system. In comparison, Oracle’s uniquely comprehensive and integrated approach has provided tremendous benefit for our customers in a number of important ways. We’re able to provide more innovation more quickly than our competitors because we have coordinated development among all of our engineering teams at all the different levels of our stack.
Key questions: What is your R&D budget? What are the unique product requirements your customers are asking for? What is your core competency? What do you deliver to customers that is unique in the market? Why do customers select your application over competitors? What % of your development resources are dedicated to delivering that unique customer value? Do you know? Have you done the analysis? We ’ve found it is not uncommon that 30% of an ISVs developers are dedicated to elements of platform software that fall outside the core application functionality customers ask for – like reporting, workflow, etc.? Have you calculated the revenue impact of completing 10% more requirements for the next release of your product? What % of your current application revenue is tied up in 3 rd party royalties? How many different 3 rd parties are you paying royalties to?
We are excited to launch 4 new products that joined Exadata and Exalogic in the Engineered Systems family earlier this year. These new products adhere to the same technology principles as Exadata and Exalogic, and extend the Engineered Systems’ value proposition. We have been in this business delivering Engineered Systems since 2008 with the introduction of Exadata followed closely by Exalogic. The success of these products has been truly amazing – outpacing even our goals for adoption. We have over 1200 systems sold to date and expect that number to be 4000 later this year. Exalogic has already surpassed Exadata as the fastest growing product in Oracle’s history and the demand for our new products leads us to believe we will see even greater adoption of our products as they were designed to be “Better Together”. With all of our products the deployment time is minimized, manageability is maximized, the lowest total cost of ownership in comparison to our competitors is delivered to you, implementation risk is minimized, and as always you have one single point of contact for support. These core principles apply to our existing products, our new products, and will certainly apply to the innovation we continue to deliver.
Key questions: What is your current approach to building solutions? Do you/your customers build from scratch? Do you use reference configurations? How many different 3 rd party vendor ’s components go into your current reference configurations? How many FTE ’s spend time on activities to test, validate, install, config, and size your application against multiple third part software and hardware components? What more could you deliver to your customer if you could refocus this effort on your core application?
How would you like people to describe your enterprise? If you had to choose one word, would it be innovative? That’s what many of our customers say. Innovation means different things to different people, but at its core, innovation is about discovering and implementing new ideas that change the way we live and work. Think about these technology-driven innovations that have changed many of our lives: Today, you can find the earth’s largest selection of products* on Amazon.com. Amazon is essentially a software company that began as an online bookstore and currently ranks among the top 20 U.S. retailers**. Borders, its former competitor, is in the midst of bankruptcy. Today, you can access most of your entertainment online, whether it’s music through Apple iTunes, movies through Netflix or video games from Zynga. Notes: * Amazon’s words, not ours. ** Fortune 500 2011 Ranking: WalMart, General Motors, Ford, Verizon, CVS Caremark, Kroger, Costco, Home Depot, Walgreen, Target, Apple, Dell, Best Buy, Lowe’s, Sears, Chrysler, Safeway, SuperValu, Walt Disney, Amazon
