Good work demands proper recognition. These words remain true at Oracle where Phillips Charles’s formerly served as president. With impeccable records of performance, Mr. Philips resignation as a co-president of the renowned software company was not a simple thing to the CEO Larry Ellison. Although Ellison may not have told the public about his fears, the truth is that what his junior had done to the company was meant to leave a gap hard to fill up.
The resignation letter must have drawn fears of what would happen when his contribution to the company will come to an end. However, with many professionals such as Mark Hurd, there was someone to replace the good man. With his co-president Safra Cartz, who has remained persistently sure that she will deliver despite Phillips absence, the company seemed to have had good momentum. A little time of readjustment has contributed to the changing on the growth of the company’s sales, but it will remain seen what would happen days to come.
Although Charles Phillip Oracle work was great and contributed to the success of this company, his successor also brings to Oracle enough experience that he has hard with HP. The CEO of Oracle welcomes Mr. Hurd with applause for his contribution
At HP, as he comes to the company, he should be able to know that so much had been done by his predecessor and that it stands a challenge for him to steer the company to where it is supposed to go. With good stewardship, his work may not be difficult considering who much the way is already cleared.
The major competition that oracle faces is what will have keep the company on toe and Mr. Hurd will have to work harder to see that IBM and SAP do not become dominate the market. This may be tough, but achievable.
With all the good things done by Charles Phillips Oracle, there had been a feeling that he could be the one to take over the CEO’s position. What had been done for oracle so far was a good amount of work. His contribution will remain a mark to the company many years to come. It is therefore a challenge for Hurd and Catz to continue the good work. The challenge is that once the record is set, it may be difficult to maintain. During the initial stages, it will take time unless Mr. Hurd and Carts have a good working relationship.
