Oracle Fusion Applications breakdown

Mark Fontecchio Mark Fontecchio Profile: Mark Fontecchio

SAN FRANCISCO – Oracle CEO Larry Ellison showed some interesting Fusion Applications pie charts during his second keynote at Oracle OpenWorld on Tuesday. Basically it was a breakdown of all current Fusion Applications customers.

First off, Ellison said that Oracle currently has about 400 Fusion Applications customers. Then he showed a chart splitting up the Fusion Applications modules. Currently 39% are running Fusion Human Capital Management (HCM), 38% are running Fusion Customer Relationship Management (CRM), and the remaining 23% are running Fusion Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP).

On the second chart, Ellison showed where these Fusion Applications customers are running their apps. About two-thirds, 65%, are running them as Software as a Service (SaaS). Then 28% are running Fusion Applications on-premise. The remainder are running them with Oracle On Demand. Ellison tried to explain the difference between SaaS and On Demand, but to be honest I didn’t understand it. They both seem to me to be SaaS.
