Mark Hurd’s Latest Blog: Why IT Complexity Kills Business Innovation
 In this new blog, Mark writes, “Information Technology today touches every facet of business in ways that traditional enterprise technology never did. As a result, chief executives are demanding a lot more from IT than they’ve been getting. CEOs need IT to help lead the way to transformational change, to help keep up with customer demands for faster, more responsive engagement, to help gain market share, and to help prevent disruption by more nimble competitors.”
Read the blog to find out why Mark says this is where cloud, big data, and engineered systems come into play.

Dear Oracle Security Alert Subscriber,

The Critical Patch Update for July 2014 was released on July 15th, 2014.

It includes the list of products affected, pointers to obtain the patches, a summary of the security vulnerabilities for each product suite, and links to other important documents. Supported products that are not listed in the "Supported Products and Components Affected" section of the advisory do not require new patches to be applied.

Also, it is essential to review the Critical Patch Update supporting documentation referenced in the Advisory before applying patches, as this is where you can find important pertinent information. Critical Patch Update Advisories are available at the following location:
