Finding the next place of work was not easy for former co-president of oracle. It was six weeks later after his resignation at oracle that he landed a lucrative position at Infor. This position puts him at a strategic place to compete with the two current residents of oracle.
As Phillips becomes the new CEO of this company, he brings with him very important skills and experience having steered Oracle to a great level of placement in the market. Infor too is known to be huge company that is handling the largest gusiness software in the world. The capacity of software that Infor sells is quite high. They make up to tow billions dollars per year worth of software, their main target being mid-sized companies. This is a market ripe for them to explore with more to be done.
For this reason, it can be said that the position of a CEO to this company is quite honorable. While Phillips is coming in to be in a higher position, it is imperative to say that his recognized contribution in the previous work place puts him in a good place to deliver. Mr.Charles Phillips Oracle must be a happy man considering that after resigning from a position in business executive, he again gets to another competitive one.
Seen from the business stand point, a lot of games have been taking place in the executives among the markets of the business software. It did not take long before Charles Phillips position at oracle was filled by an executive formerly of Hewlett-Packard. At the same time, HP in its part brought in Leo Apotheker who had been heading SAP to take over the vacancy left by Hurd.
Infor has been on top list for considering small customers who have been ignored by the other major software companies. Companies such as SAP, I.B.M and Oracle have been concentrating their efforts of focusing major buyers. With Infor, its products which include the management systems for businesses, its main target has been the small holders. In fact, this has been able to raise its standing as the best among many small companies and businesses. Mr.Charles Phillips Oracle who had been hoping to tap the potential in the small market seems to have found the best place so far.
