My experience at #OOW14 was very good. I found that Oracle is really more focused on analysts and what we know about their products and services and want to create a solid relationship with the analyst community. While there is a relationship between analysts and Oracle, it is clear that with new leadership at the helm of Analyst Relationships, new life has been brought into the mix. This is important for vendor’s to understand the relationship between a vendor an the analysts who cover that particular area.
Many analysts want to try to keep up with everything that is going on, but there are only so many hours in a day, a week and a year. We do our very best to be current. But it’s really a shared responsibility between vendors and analysts to help buyers and users of technology to discern what all these new announcements mean to them and how to apply them to the work they have to get done on a daily basis.
