Oracle’s Bob Evans on marketing and technology #cloudwf

Cloud World Forum Speaker and IT giant Oracle’s chief communications officer, Bob Evans, discusses why marketing is skewing away from the technology and towards its benefits.

Read his interview with Marketing Week below!

bob_evan_460“Oracle is at its heart a hardcore technology company,” says Bob Evans, the IT giant’s chief communications officer. After 35 years of building databases, the company is in the midst of changing its marketing focus to create awareness of how its products can be applied to business.

Oracle’s target market is changing too, comprising not just computer technicians but professionals from many other business areas.

Moving to communicate with new audiences outside the traditional IT customer base is not an unusual journey for business-to-business (B2B) technology companies. The largest – by profit, turnover and market capitalisation – is IBM, which has been trying to shift perceptions through its Smarter Planet campaign. The aim is to emphasise the effects of technology on the world.

Financially, it has not worked well of late for IBM. Profits and revenue both shrank in the year to December 2013, while this year’s first-quarter results disappointed stock markets, with revenue down 4 per cent on the same period last year. Oracle’s corresponding figures were up for its most recent quarterly results, though they were also short of analyst expectations.

Oracle does not have IBM’s size or brand value – Millward Brown’s BrandZ ranking of the world’s most valuable brands put the two at 35th and 3rd respectively in 2013. Business software provider SAP also outshined Oracle, at 19th place, despite being a smaller company. However, Evans believes Oracle has a distinctive selling point in helping its business customers adapt to today’s new global business environment “at every level”.
