The Forrester Wave™: Digital Experience Platforms, Q3 2017 report has been released, and Oracle has been named the only leader based on its current offering, strategy, and market presence!
Twenty-eight criteria were evaluated across fourteen vendors. Each company had a portfolio of products comprising digital experience platforms, pre-built integrations with other products within the portfolio, reference customers with at least $500 million in revenue, and mindshare among Forrester's enterprise customers.
According to the report, “Oracle's platform benefits from the largest portfolio and heavy cloud refactoring. Oracle’s broad portfolio compares favorably to all other vendors that were evaluated, and includes content, commerce, marketing, data, analytics, and customer care.” As one reference told Oracle: ‘No one else has the depth and breadth of integration and plans to spend as much in the future on product development. I think Oracle is in this for the long haul.’

Oracle OpenWorld was great this year! By the numbers - 60,000+ attendees, 18 million+ online views, thousands of sessions with speakers from over 90 countries.
A couple of key observations:
When compared to OpenWorld 2016, we really noticed an improvement in cloud functionality for the products Redstone re-sells and implements. Kudos to the Oracle Product Management teams!
The consolidation of Oracle PartnerNetwork activities within the Marriott Marquis made collaboration and learning much easier!
Larry Ellison’s keynote introducing the Oracle Autonomous Database was extremely timely, as it came on the heels of the Equifax data breach. The world’s first ‘self-driving’ database is sure to make a significant impact as it will reassure Executives that critical patches have been applied in a timely fashion.
