Tech Data’s recent Oracle Partner Update Briefing (PUB), held in the City of London and deemed ‘an unqualified success’, briefed partners on Oracle’s plans to finish the current year on a high.
More than 60 current and prospective Oracle partners attended, alongside Tech Data and Oracle personnel, taking the total attendance to over 100 people. As well as hearing about Oracle’s plans for the year ahead and its latest solutions and developments, partners were given the chance to meet senior team members, including Rob Tomlin, Managing Director of Tech Data Advanced Solutions UK&I, and Simon Hill, Head of UKI Alliances and Channels at Oracle.
With Oracle now well into the second half of its FY2018 (ending 31st May), Rob Tomlin felt it was the perfect time to learn about the company’s plans to finish the year on a high and boost its partners’ sales.
He said, “Oracle is a key strategic partner for Tech Data Advanced Solutions and we have unrivalled expertise in its solutions and services. We want to work with Oracle partners to help them grow and develop their skills and their business. This was a great opportunity for us to demonstrate that commitment and for Oracle partners to learn about our business and how we can help them achieve their ambitions.
“It’s important for us to stay in touch with the needs of our customers and ensure that there is always a good and positive two-way exchange of information and feedback. The PUB gathering was a good opportunity for us to do that with our Oracle partners – it was a great success and certainly something we’ll be repeating on a regular basis.”
Simon Hill, Head of UK and Ireland Alliances and Channels, Oracle added, “Oracle was pleased to support Tech Data Advanced Solutions in bringing many current and prospective Oracle partners together for this event. It was a good opportunity for Oracle and Tech Data Advanced Solutions to jointly brief Oracle Partners on Oracle's current priorities plus future plans and to get face-to-face feedback on how all parties can work closer together to strengthen and advance our partnerships and our business. I am already looking forward to the next PUB.”
The Tech Data Advanced Solutions team is planning its next Oracle PUB event to run in the midlands or the north. Full details will be announced in due course. Current or prospective Oracle partners should email email@example.com to register their interest in attending.
