Feature: A Centerpiece Conversation With Mark Hurd, CEO, Oracle
Hosted By Mark Anderson
At The Inaugural SNS Predictions : West
- About Mark Hurd
Publisher’s Note: Last week, at our first-ever Predictions : West event, in San Francisco, I had the pleasure of interviewing my friend and guest Oracle CEO Mark Hurd. This is now the third or fourth time I’ve had the opportunity to interview Mark, and each time I learn something new – not just about Oracle, which one expects, but about larger issues in the worlds of sales, marketing, operations, management, and even human psychology.
This interview was no exception, and members will find that, while we had a great time moving very quickly through cloud computing, Platform as a Service, security, data center management, hardware and software optimization, and other technical issues, plenty of unexpected gems came out in the same half hour, such as understanding Mark’s view of the world’s demographics in terms of age, income, and sales potential. I think all of our members will enjoy this conversation as much as I did. – mra.
