Online Event Will Provide Partners with Critical Information, Strategies for Achieving Ongoing Sales Success
Redwood Shores, CA .-Further enabling its valued global partner community, Oracle today announced the first Oracle Virtual Partner Kickoff, an online event providing information and strategies for partners to successfully plan and engage with Oracle for the next fiscal year.
For the first time ever, partners across the globe will have access to product messaging, presentations and Webcasts delivered at Oracle’s own internal sales kickoff, and will gain critical insight into strategic partner initiatives designed to help them drive more revenue for their businesses through specialization and monetization of Oracle acquisitions.
Partners will also have direct access to critical sales strategies and messages, delivered by Oracle executives including Charles Phillips, Safra Catz and Judson Althoff, and will hear from top Applications, Middleware and Database product development executives on Oracle’s strategic focus areas, including Cloud Computing, Open Source and more. Additionally, top regional Alliances and Channels executives will address partners on specific strategies that will help partners in their geographies engage with Oracle in FY10.
All registered Oracle partners are eligible to attend the July 7, 2009 virtual event using their existing Oracle PartnerNetwork login and password. All content will be available on the Oracle PartnerNetwork portal for several quarters following the event. For more information, visit:

“Our partners’ success is our success,” said Judson Althoff, Group Vice President of Worldwide Alliances and Channels, Oracle. “This event symbolizes a new level of transparency between Oracle and our more than 20,000 member-strong global partner community. Globally, partner business accounts for more than 40 percent of our revenue. Empowering our partners with the same information that our own sales teams have helps align our strategies and sales efforts. Ultimately, this should produce the most value for our end customers.”
“Oracle partners are critical for us,” said Ted Bereswill, senior vice president of North America Alliances & Channels at Oracle. “Over the past year Oracle has invested steadily in Enablement 2.0 programs to help our partners continue to learn, grow and excel. In 2010 we will continue this investment and help partners move to new levels of specialization, allowing them to more easily gain expertise in Oracle’s newly acquired products, thereby broadening their own product and service portfolios.”
