Oracle was represented by Toby Emerson, senior director of Oracle University Americas, and Cisco was represented by Tom Kelly, vice president, Internet Learning Solutions.

Toby Emerson made some of the following key points:
Oracle University handles the course deployment for Oracle product training, but course development is handled by the company's product groups.Contrary to what one would expect, however, more than 80% of the courses are instructor-led training in class (70% is delivered by Oracle, and 30% by authorized partners), and only about 10% is in the form of eLearning.Partner and reseller training, however, has embraced eLearning more than have customers (some analysts blame this low eLearning adoption on the way the Oracle are structured and delivered eLearning courses).
To the question Does Training Sell Product?, Toby noted that most customers purchase software without taking training, but many existing Oracle customers take training to make their decision about upgrading (upgrading and maintenance contracts represent significant revenue sources for most software companies, although a growing number of customers are now looking for cheaper options that are available in the marketplace).
Toby emphasized that customer training and internal training are "very different animals" and made it clear that she reports to the president's office and that she has "very aggressive" performance (sales-growth and margin-requirement) objectives and has her own direct sales force that sells Oracle training.
