Oracle Escalates Mid-market Competition, Free White Paper
|March 10 2009|
Oracle has announced a number of initiatives that highlight its mid-market ambitions, its application integration strategy and – most of all – its growing passion for partners.
Although just one of Oracle’s newly announced initiatives – an expanded alliance with IBM – focuses solely on the mid- market, all of them address Oracle’s ambitions in this strategic battleground. Taken together, they should significantly extend Oracle’s mid- market reach, create new opportunities for partners, and foster solutions that are easier and less expensive for customers to implement.
That said, it’s another matter whether the initiatives will significantly expand Oracle’s share of the mid- market. The other major businessapplication vendors are making similar investments, and while this is good news for customers, it likely signals a protracted battle for market share.
Oracle is aggressively recruiting partners that have expertise in specific industries and markets, and will work with them to define standard solution bundles, prices and implementation times that reflect SMBs' typical resource constraints, and lower risk tolerance compared to large enterprises.
