Oracle to hire 1000 sales staff in APAC

Approximately 125 staff will be hired in Australia says vendor

Oracle has unveiled plans to hire 1000 new sales staff in Asia Pacific to sell its cloud offerings including software-as-a-service (SaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS).

The vendor will be hiring approximately 125 staff in Australia.

Oracle will also be recruiting in China, India, Korea, Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

Oracle Australia and New Zealand regional managing director Tim Ebbeck said it is focused on helping its customers’ transition to the cloud so that they can achieve their business goals.

According to the vendor, it invests $5 billion in product research and development every year.

One of Oracle’s biggest customers in Australia is National Australia Bank (NAB) who implemented Oracle Service Cloud in 2012.

The platform combines Web, social and call centre functions. Within six weeks of the rollout of the Service Cloud platform, NAB call centre rates dropped from 20,000 down to 2000 calls per month.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
