Oracle NetSuite expands in EMEA, opening new data centres

19 Oct 17

Oracle NetSuite has launched its SuiteSuccess editions for Ireland and UK headquartered companies.

This announcement came in combination with further EMEA-specific product enhancements, more offices in the region and more customer and partner wins.

NetSuite asserts with the resources of Oracle, the company is able to accelerate growth and product innovation to strengthen its commitment to customer and partner success in the region.

The provider of cloud-based financials/ERP, HR, Professional Services Automation (PSA) and omnichannel commerce software suites currently maintains six data centres with four in North America and two in EMEA – one in Amsterdam and the other in Dublin.

Following this recent growth and the company’s further foray into EMEA, NetSuite plans to build a data centre in Germany as the company asserts this will remedy the ‘lack of modern cloud computing offerings in the country.’

VP EMEA for Oracle NetSuite, Mark Woodhams says the the company is excited with the recent wins and expansion in the region.

"EMEA has long been a strategic region for NetSuite and a key factor in our growth," says Woodhams.

"With the backing of Oracle's resources, we are doubling down on our commitment to the region to help ensure more customer and partner success."

At the heart of NetSuite’s growth in the EMEA region is its strengthening channel ecosystem as it continues to add new partners in the UK, Sweden, Finland, Belgium, South Africa, Middle East and more, to meet the growing demand for cloud ERP in the region.

Following this massive growth, the company has quadrupled its sales force in EMEA since January this year.

That investment also includes direct sales forces in the Netherlands, Sweden and Germany, as well as direct sales forces in Dubai and Qatar to serve the Middle East and South Africa.

NetSuite is adding marketing and services personnel in the region and development staff to continue to localise the company to address country and even region-specific requirements.
