Over the past several years, Oracle’s focus has been on the cloud. Although Oracle’s efforts to gain market share in this space have been minimal, this has not stopped it from developing new products, strategies, and compensation plans to get their customers to SaaS, IaaS, or PaaS product offerings. This briefing discusses trends we have seen in our recent Oracle engagements and the best practices we recommend to maintain leverage and drive deal success.

Key Highlights:

  • Comparison of how Oracle stacks up against competition in the cloud infrastructure race
  • Case trends highlighting the ways Oracle sales reps are keeping customers at the table
  • Common challenges and solutions when negotiating with Oracle, such as deconstructing bundles, forecasting demand, and understanding Oracle's compensation structure
