NetSuite SuiteWorld’s opening keynote was filled with new announcements and partnerships that are poised to push NetSuite beyond its standing as a midmarket player. NetSuite is ready to go toe to toe with other ERP players like Microsoft Dynamics.
To position itself as a key player, NetSuite CEO Zach Nelson announced on Tuesday during his keynote speech NetSuite’s partnership with Oracle. Oracle’s Exadata will now power NetSuite’s cloud, providing unparalleled cloud capabilities whether you are building or using a public or private cloud.
Another big announcement Nelson made was NetSuite’s partnership with Accenture, one of the leading consulting agencies in the world. The fruit of this partnership was a joint customer win of Qualcomm. Another big customer win for NetSuite is Groupon. Groupon will be rolling out in 40 countries in 40 weeks and turned to the NetSuite OneWorld solution for its multi-language and multi-company capabilities, as well as its ability to deliver real-time data.
What do these partnerships and customer wins mean for NetSuite and its customers? For NetSuite, these partnerships with big names like Oracle and Accenture speak to the company’s desire to expand its reach and to take on business software giants like SAP by offering a product line that is powerful and agile. For customers, integration with Oracle will give NetSuite products a powerful technological foundation for their solutions.
