Execution, Not Outside Competitors, Is Oracle's Biggest Challenge
Asked about the biggest competitive threats to Oracle, co-presidents Mark Hurd and Safra Catz said executing the company's strategy is the major focus right now.
Noting that Oracle has 124,000 employees, including a rapidly growing sales force, Hurd said keeping those employees moving in the same direction is key. "We have to keep them led," he said. "Our biggest issue is really making sure we're in the field with clear, simple messages that we can give the customers as we go execute. That is job one. That is our job."
"Our competitive threats are ourselves. It's all about execution," Catz said.
