“There’s still a lot of people running these applications on premise and they’re confused,” says Paul Vian, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Apps Associates. He says the concerns listed in the report can largely be addressed by reading contracts and talking to experts. “More of this conversation is driven around moving to a non-Oracle cloud,” he says.
