What three things could you not live without?

1. Oracle Public Cloud - it is the gift that keeps on giving. 2. Partners - they are the cloud market change agents for Oracle. 3. The Oracle On Premise to Cloud ROI Tool - it makes me happy every time I see a partner or customer's reaction to its output.
