According to Forbes, two-thirds of Indian CIO’s are expecting the majority of their information technologies to run on the cloud by 2015. Addressing the audience through a live webcast, Mark Hurd, President, Oracle Corporation re-inforced the company’s global cloud strategy which is to offer choice and flexibility to customers with the most comprehensive, modern, and secure portfolio of cloud products and services.
