At Oracle Modern Supply Chain Experience 2018, Oracle CEO Mark Hurd highlighted two major risks facing companies in nearly every industry: disruptive technologies and cybersecurity threats. Noting that more than half of the Fortune 500 companies from 2000 are now gone, Hurd emphasized that no company or industry is safe, and minimizing exposure to these risks should be top of mind in every boardroom.
Mark Hurd suggests that one of the best ways to stay ahead of industry disruption and security threats is for organizations to embrace innovation as a competitive advantage. He highlights how moving to the cloud accelerates adoption of new technology, strengthens security, and allows companies to adopt strategies focused on innovation.
