      Yes Tim

      To clarify IaaS, infrastructure as a service = subscribing to basic compute from Oracle. We still manage everything on the server, same as today; but technically I am in the "cloud". This probably won't be a big play for Oracle since Amazon and Microsoft can likely continue to do it cheaper.

      PaaS, platform as a service = what we have called a "hosted solution" for years. Oracle runs the infrastructure and maintains the software (patching, trouble tickets, etc.) This is where Oracle has a lot of opportunity, especially in certain ERP spaces. They have Fusion in the cloud as a SaaS, but if you look at the other ERPs like EBS, PeopleSoft, and JD Edwards, PaaS is the best option for getting those customers into the cloud. Getting people to abandon those after 20+ years isn't going to be so easy. Oracle needs to change the proposition to allow people to lift and shift their existing apps into the cloud. Effectively moving to the cloud becomes a hardware refresh. In my opinion this is the only way to make it palatable to some organizations.

      So if this becomes the strategy for many organizations, then I go back to my original question, if I go to the cloud but I'm using "on-premise" software, do I still get treated like a step-child? Oracle needs to solve that right away. Extending the support, I believe, is a first step in that direction.
