Oracle Hospitality’s looks to the cloud for growth


In 2014, Oracle bought Micros, a merger that didn’t go smoothly. But the company's new CEO says that transition is mostly over. Renewed growth and improved customer satisfaction will be the new normal.

Oracle Hospitality provides the most widely used property management systems and point-of-sale systems in hotels worldwide. Giants like Hilton, Hyatt, and Marriott rely on it, as do many small independents.

Two weeks ago, Oracle Hospitality installed Greg Webb as its new top boss. Webb was previously vice chairman of Sabre, a travel technology company with a large hospitality division of its own, for 16 months. Webb rose up through the ranks there. His stints included five years running Sabre’s biggest division, which powers global airline distribution.

Skift interviewed Webb at HITEC, the Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition and Conference, last Wednesday in Houston.
