Choosing a Global Software Development Partner to Accelerate Your Digital Strategy

They all form the Oracle Marketing cloud although they haven’t gone through a lot of integration. Oracle announced some information on the alignment of product release cycles and other updates. PC World has an article about it.
Oracle is trying to differentiate itself from the pack on a number of fronts, according to Stetic. One is the “openness of our platform,” he said.
Oracle will make it purposely easy for companies to build integrations between the Marketing Cloud and other data sources or enterprise applications, Stetic added.
In addition, Oracle’s tools can give companies “the most complete view of the customer,” with advanced collection of attributes and their online behavior, he said.
In addition, Market Watch has a little more info straight from a press release about the enhanced Oracle Eloqua enhancements and there are quite a few including deeper Oracle Social integration.
