My private Corner – when leadership changes III

imageVikas Anand the driver and great supporter of the PaaS Partner Community accepted a new challenge. As a friend and VP of Integration we will keep him in mind for the excellent support and the joint on-premises and cloud business.

Vikas message for the partner community: 17 years of fun times, challenging times and everything in between. Yes, the clock really ticks fast. And what an amazing ride this has been. Oracle provided me amazing opportunities through the years, to eventually lead the Oracle Integration Portfolio.

It’s bittersweet to leave a workplace you’ve enjoyed. I have had the privilege to meet many of you through the years during my travels to Oracle offices across the world. It has been a pleasure working alongside the incredible talent Oracle has. This place, this work, and its people have meant so much to me. I am #oracle and #oracleintegration proud!

I am very grateful for the support you have provided to me, and my team over the years – that has translated into the huge success Oracle integration has experienced. In the most recent Gartner MQ we are #2 in vision, and Oracle integration continues to march upwards vs the competition. We enter into FY20 with a stellar roadmap, amazing go to market, and new saas attach opportunities. Plus, you will have the support of the outstanding and passionate Oracle integration Product Management, and Engineering team!

None of us achieve in isolation, and the successes we’ve enjoyed together have been a result of our mutual cooperation, and collaboration. This collaboration and success will continue to amazing new levels with:

  • Scott Haaland and Jon Huang as your point of contacts for outbound support for SOA CS & OIC, and OIC4SaaS respectively
  • Siddharth Pande will be your contact for anything related to OIC product roadmap and plans
  • Jagdeep Singh on the team will help you build executive partner relationships
  • Jim Bole on the team is your point of contact for strategic customers deploying OIC, SOA CS etc

I will continue to track the progress of OIC albiet from a distance.

Stay in touch Vikas Anand

Thank you and keep the flag of Oracle Integration flying high always!
