Research shows that NetSuite customers grow 3x faster and stronger and are amongst the most innovative companies in the world.
Summarized from great keynotes, informative sessions, a huge expo hall, and the latest updates to the NetSuite product, below is a small recap of this incredible event.
NetSuite’s Growth & Expansion
NetSuite has grown substantially over the past year and so have their customers. Since the acquisition in 2016, NetSuite is now operating in 21 new country localizations, 212 countries/dependent territories, and 22,000 + new international subsidiaries representing over half of the new subsidiaries in NetSuite customers.
NetSuite continues to be a huge success for Oracle Cloud with more growth and more confidence than ever before. Mark Hurd, CEO of Oracle, attended this year’s conference in person, sharing his views on trends, AI, and the future of the Oracle NetSuite applications. Mark mentioned that acquiring NetSuite 2.5 years ago was the most strategic acquisition Oracle has ever made.
NetSuite is offering a few new enablements for global expansion with installments, expense management, and SuiteTax. Evan Goldberg, EVP of Oracle NetSuite, said that “A big twist the Oracle acquisition, has allowed us to refocus on you, on great companies that are growing from the startup phase to become multi-hundred million-dollar companies.“ NetSuite enables customers to achieve their vision with one system in the cloud to help them grow.
A huge change for NetSuite is the migration into the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. OCI uses machine learning to automatically update database performance, optimize tools, and refine the system at rapid rates. “In a matter of hours, this interactive autonomous infrastructure wrote 6000 indexes, further optimized it and gave you a performance kick. Imagine that rippling through our entire database.“ -Mark Hurd, CEO of Oracle
Hurd is dedicated to supporting NetSuite with the commitment for NetSuite to go on forever: “We’ve invested in more industries, more countries, more salespeople and adding R&D in the interest of continuing to invest in the technology and the product. NetSuite is going to do nothing but get better and better and attract more investment from us.”
