Oracle announced that it has hired more than 800 new salespeople in Asia Pacific as part of its commitment to become the world’s largest enterprise cloud company. This positive momentum occurs just three months after the company launched a campaign to increase its sales workforce by 1,000 in an effort to capitalize on the growth of cloud computing across APAC.
“We are seeing significant momentum in our cloud business in Asia Pacific as more companies embrace cloud computing,” said Loic Le Guisquet, president, EMEA & APAC, Oracle.
“Cloud is transforming businesses, and Oracle understands that this fundamental change requires not only the best technologies, but also the best people. Our recruiting initiatives have already been tremendously successful and we are excited to expand our sales force to help guide more companies through their cloud transformations,” he added.
“We believe we are game-changers in the cloud space, and that technology as well as people are equally important in our strategy to capture cloud opportunities. Keeping in line with growing demands, our recently launch recruitment campaign has already achieved 80% of our hiring target. The momentum is a clear indication of the confidence India’s talent pool has in Oracle and reiterates the potential for Oracle to become the number one cloud vendor in the world,” said Shailender Kumar, VP, regional MD, Oracle India.
