  • We won’t be doing any “road maps” today. Everything we’re here to discuss with you is either ready for use, or at a minimum ready for your evaluation, right now.
  • Cloud adoption is well past the stage of pilot projects: it’s now part of the solution portfolio in organizations of all kinds
  • We move the complete freedom of a custom logic capability up into a metadata layer, uniquely combining the power of custom logic with the economy and robustness of a full multi-tenant environment. Someday, others will do likewise: for now, is unique in delivering this combination of characteristics.
  • Partitioning of data enables compliance with regulation; further, liberating the latent value of legacy IT assets is often the most unexpected bonus of the cloud – and it’s “the” cloud, one common cloud with many interoperable services, not multiple clouds representing separate silos
  • When you design from Day 1 for massive sharing, you build in a representation of data ownership from the bottom up instead of trying to construct a perimeter
  • Measurable productivity improvement, independently estimated by three separate studies, is the result
  • Faster In The Cloud
