Why Read This Report

This report, originally written for CIOs, includes content relevant to application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals. With Oracle's strong footprint in the enterprise business apps market, AD&D professionals must be aware of any upcoming shifts in its app commitments and strategies. Oracle's commitment to supporting older applications (e.g., E-Business Suite and PeopleSoft) via its Applications Unlimited program has left customers with little incentive to migrate to the newer Oracle Fusion Applications product suite. We believe Oracle is under pressure to drive faster adoption of Oracle Fusion Applications, with the goal of achieving longer term growth in app revenue. AD&D pros therefore need to place a higher priority on their Oracle applications road map. They should carefully weigh the pros and cons of their current Oracle apps situation versus those offered by Oracle Fusion Applications (including Oracle's cloud services), as well as alternative cloud-only products. This research includes the results of a Forrester survey of Oracle customers, which revealed a low interest level in adopting Oracle Fusion Applications and continued confusion about how the newer apps fit in with the rest of Oracle's app portfolio, which is supported by its Applications Unlimited program.
