So, why no presence at Oracle OpenWorld?

Lack of vision and execution could be part of the answer, but perhaps lack of understanding or simply not listening to your customers could be a bigger reason. An increasing number of NetApp customers are moving their Oracle Enterprise applications from NetApp to vendors who are more in tune with application providers.

From structured data and relational databases to unstructured data, these days it is more important than ever for hardware vendors to understand customer applications and work closely with software providers. The fact that NetApp was a “no show” at Oracle OpenWorld speaks volumes.

Dear NetApp:  Elton John and thousands of Oracle customers send you a big “hello,” and wish you get better soon!
