On the first day of the Cloud Computing World Forum, London 2012, Jon talked with Phil Wainewright about Oracle’s impossible-to-ignore cloud announcements. Phil explains why Oracle’s  “single tenant” approach plays into Oracle’s business model. The guys also talk about whether the SaaS market will ultimately be won by best of breed the “pure SaaS” players or if the big on-premise vendors have a shot.  The problem of cloud and on-premise integration is also raised.
