The new economic realities have caused companies to re-think their strategies and business models. As economies emerge from the recession, industry leaders are displaced, new competitors emerge, and companies take on acquisitions to gain market share. However, the requirements to lower costs, gain competitive advantage, streamline operations, accelerate innovation, and improve customer service have not changed.

In 2006, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison met with Mark Sunday, Oracle’s CIO, to discuss the impending tidal wave of acquisitions that would hit the shores of the information technology (IT) department. The challenge was to have a clear strategy for scaling business processes that would accommodate the acquisitions, reduce costs, and maintain Oracle’s operating efficiencies and margins while expanding its product portfolio and revenue growth.

In this webcast, Mark Sunday will share best practices from Oracle’s own transformation and how Oracle leveraged the shared services model to realize its growth strategy. Oracle’s own IT transformation has enabled it to successfully complete 30+ acquisitions over the last three years. You will also hear from Tim Meehan, Vice President of Sales for Oracle On Demand. Tim will highlight Oracle On Demand best practices to enable your shared service strategy.

You’re sure to walk away from this event with a solid foundation for what it takes to gain more agility, scalability, and essentially how to do "more with less" through shared services and outsourcing.

Also, for attending this seminar, you will receive a copy the Oracle Impact Series white paper "Oracle Information Technology: Building a Foundation for Future Growth – Transformation Through Datacenter Optimization".
