Lashed to the much bigger ship that is Oracle, cloud software provider NetSuite is setting sail for a new market near you.
Until now, the 18-year-old company based in San Mateo, California, has focused on English-speaking countries and Japan. As part of Oracle, it plans to localize its products for many more countries while expanding its data-center capacity, sales operations, partner channel and other assets to reach customers in those new areas.
Oracle announced plans in July to buy NetSuite for $ 9.3 billion, and it closed the deal on Nov. 7. On Thursday, executives laid out some of their plans following the takeover.
