As part of its commitment to become the world's largest enterprise cloud company, Oracle has recently expanded its workforce by hiring more than 800 salespeople in Asia Pacific.
This positive momentum occurs just three months after the company launched a campaign to increase its sales workforce by 1,000 in an effort to capitalise on the growth of cloud computing across APAC.
The new cloud salespeople come from a wide array of backgrounds, from established IT companies to newly founded start-ups. This brings both valuable experience as well as fresh enthusiasm, according to the company. Other new recruits also come from line of business positions in a wide variety of industry sectors such as finance, manufacturing, telecoms and utilities.
As customer cloud adoption rates continue to accelerate, Oracle's cloud salespeople will be fully equipped to enhance customer success and play an integral role in driving the region's cloud transformation.
"We are seeing significant momentum in our cloud business in Asia Pacific as more companies embrace cloud computing. Cloud is transforming businesses, and Oracle understands that this fundamental change requires not only the best technologies, but also the best people," said Loic Le Guisquet, President, Oracle, EMEA & APAC. "Our recruiting initiatives have already been tremendously successful and we are excited to expand our sales force to help guide more companies through their cloud transformations."
