Oracle has announced plans to create 200 new jobs focused on cloud technologies, through the opening of a digital sales hub in Sydney.
As part of expansion plans, the software vendor will house a new team of over 200 digital sales professionals, designed to help mid-sized organisations transition to the cloud.
“Cloud is changing the heart of business in Australia, and at an unprecedented pace,” Oracle Australia and New Zealand managing director, Rob Willis, said.
“We are seeing companies selecting and starting to use their new platforms in less than six weeks in some cases.”
Willis said the Oracle Digital team will deliver support to customers in a bid to reshape the buying experience, delivered through real-time demos remotely.
“Marketing can optimise their campaigns on the fly,” Willis explained.
“Finance can get figures in hours when it used to take days or even weeks. HR can accurately analyse future workforce trends, and take pre-emptive steps to keep top talent engaged and productive.
“Success breeds success, so as one part of the business dips their toe in the water and gains the benefit, so the roll out moves on to other areas.”
The opening comes amidst a hiring spree for the tech giant, who revealed plans to hire over 1000 new staff across Asia Pacific in 2015, with a core focus on cloud.
