Do you know the expected size of the audience at Oracle OpenWorld 2011 in San Francisco , October 2-6. ? Probably at least 41 000 attendees .No doubt that this year again the huge software company will succeed in attracting a very large crowd of IT decision makers and managers anxious to learn more, and solve daily problems as well as planning future services for their organizations.
Cisco this year again will be present as a diamond sponsor – And guess what ? John Chambers , Chairman and CEO of Cisco will on Wednesday October 5 morning the key notes speaker starting at 8:00 am PST . Well ..what does it mean ? Let me give you my perspective on that
First the partnership between Oracle and Cisco is getting stronger and deeper over the time- Yes our entrance on the server market with the Unified Computing systems at the time that Oracle was acquiring Sun Microsystems makes the relationhip more complex , but let’s face it – Oracle is first of all a software company, and when a company like Cisco is coming with a very successful server platform which makes your software shine in terms of performances, you definitely want your applications on this platform. Check out here benchmark reports and some customer testimonials.
Second Cisco is a very good Oracle customer with a very strong practice in terms of SCM, HR, financial management … Beyond the revenues generated by the “customer” no doubt that Oracle is learning a lot from the excellent Cisco IT practices – No surprise that Cisco is always invited as a customer to share testimonials and experiences.
Finally it’s clear that the unique vision of Cisco (Built the Human Network) , the large portfolio (Data Center and Cloud, Collaboration, Borderless Network) , as well as the quality of products and services, benefit to the Oracle customers, which are by far also Cisco customers. Oracle customers are eager to hear what John Chambers has to say, because they recognize the importance of the network to the success of their Oracle environment.
Cisco is absolutely committed to this success, and developed over the past years practices to secure the deployment of solutions called “Cisco Validated Design “ . Cisco engineers and architects have been working diligently with their peers from Oracle to offer to the customers as well as to the partners of both companies a level of understanding and knowledge , conducive to a very stable environment
