Boado Lama also outlined a certification program for partners, requiring them to register and ensure their consultants are trained and certified. Oracle provides a range of tools to aid partners in enhancing the implementation process, making it more efficient. The emphasis on certification and training ensures that partners have the necessary skills to deliver quality solutions to customers.

Boado Lama emphasized the expansive partner ecosystem, ranging from large organizations to local partners. He mentioned the creation of a marketplace where partners can contribute their tools and intellectual property to extend Oracle applications with local adaptations. This collaborative approach allows for a diverse and dynamic ecosystem, enhancing the overall value of Oracle’s cloud offerings.

Watters added to the discussion by highlighting the significance of the UAE in Oracle’s market share, noting that it is one of the countries with the largest market presence. He acknowledged the impressive growth Oracle has experienced in the region, especially in migrating customers to the cloud. Watters stressed the importance of partners in ensuring the success of these implementations.

Watters emphasized Oracle’s commitment to partner success, viewing it as a top priority alongside customer success. With the growth rates seen in the UAE, he expressed the need for partners to have the right resources. He underscored the importance of having partners with adequate capabilities to support the increasing demand for Oracle’s cloud applications.

The Oracle CloudWorld Tour Dubai 2024 shed light on Oracle’s collaborative approach with partners in the UAE for the successful implementation of cloud applications. The certification program, support tools, and the vibrant partner ecosystem all contribute to Oracle’s commitment to customer and partner success.
