Oracle's Lisa Marcyes says, 'People trust people more than they trust brands'

Media 7 | May 13, 2022

-
The key to good social media marketing is knowing everything about the audience, shares Lisa Marcyes Director, Global Social Media at Oracle, in this interview with Media 7. Read on to find out more about the best go-to approach for audience gap analysis, top social media marketing trends to look out for this year and the best ways to generate leads on social media.

Knowing what content resonates with our community helps to inform the direction we should go in when developing future content.

MEDIA 7: One of the most recent developments in social media marketing is the emergence of Creators and Creator communities. As the Director of Global Social Media at Oracle, what are your thoughts on this?
LISA MARCYES:
People trust people more than they trust brands. As brands look to make an impact and engage in new and unique ways with their followers, collaboration with creators will significantly increase. A few of the things we think about when developing social-first campaigns:

  1.  Who will resonate within the community?
  2. What message do we want to tell?
  3. What type of content will deliver that message most efficiently?
  4. Where will the content live?
  5. And most importantly, let the creator provide their unique voice and direction.

The landscape is changing. As people build personal brands, they become micro-influencers and experts in their own right. The brands that incorporate creators in their social plans will be successful.


M7: In your role, you have developed and created social strategies for more than 24 social channels and across at least 8 lines of business. How did you identify which social networks are right for the brand?
LM:
As with any business, the key is to learn everything you can about your audience: who are your customers; what do they care about, and where are they most active. Then, tailor your content and strategy to meet them where they are!

For example, developers tend to be more active on Twitter and communities (Stack Overflow, Medium, Reddit, etc), so we tend to develop strategies that cater to those channels. In addition, we’ve found marketing jargon doesn’t resonate. Therefore, we keep our messaging to the point, educational, and fairly technical.

If you aren’t aware of what others are doing, you’re operating in a silo and can miss emerging trends.



M7: What is your go-to approach for audience gap analysis for Oracle?
LM:
I’m always looking 3 things when looking for content gaps:

  1. Content Analysis: How is the current content, that we’re developing, performing? What is the top-performing content, and just as importantly, what is the bottom performing content? Knowing what content resonates with our community helps to inform the direction we should go in when developing future content. Of course, I consider every stage of the buyers' journey when evaluating so that we can consider, the top/middle/bottom of the funnel.
     
  2. SEO: Are we utilizing SEO as effectively as we could? How are our competitors ranking over us? When people search for our products, what questions are they looking to answer? Answering those questions can provide a blueprint for the type of content we can develop to rank higher.
     
  3. Competitive analysis: We consistently monitor what our top competitors are doing so we understand the landscape, what is resonating with the audience, and where we may have gaps. If you aren’t aware of what others are doing, you’re operating in a silo and can miss emerging trends. 

M7: According to you, what are some top social media marketing trends to look out for this year?
LM:
This year we’re all in on streaming on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, and Instagram. We’re at an interesting time. We’ve been completely digital for a few years, and are now just getting back to in-person events. The comfort level with digital is there, so we are looking at ways we can create unique experiences that incorporate both in-person and digital across social moving forward.

With short-form videos, TikTok has changed the landscape and the way we approach storytelling. People connect with organic, honest, humorous content. Brands are faced with a unique opportunity to embrace this trend. A few ways we’re diving in include letting our customers tell their stories in their own way, highlighting employees and their experiences, and inviting creators/influencers to highlight new product advancements in their words.

People connect with organic, honest, humorous content.



M7: What are some of the best ways to generate leads on social media?
LM:
There are 3 key components to a successful social media post.

  1. Channel/Time: Go where your audience is and post when your followers are most active.
     
  2. Content: What’s in it for the user? Providing value for the user is key. That can look a lot of different ways, and vary depending on where they are in the buyers' journey. We’ve found success using a 4-1-1 approach: 4 top of the funnel posts which may be entertaining, educational, or thought leadership; 1 re-share or mid-funnel post product tips and tricks, offers, and 1 demand generation post.
     
  3. Imagery: In an oversaturated social landscape, the need to create feed stopping content has never been more important. Tweets with videos generate 10x more engagement than those without. Developing relevant gifs, stories, and images will make your posts stand out and garner more clicks. 

Always think about the mobile-first user. 88% of our users are engaging with our social media posts via mobile. Good branding is noticeable but not obtrusive.


M7: What advice do you have for social media marketing teams who are struggling to take it to the next level in the present market landscape?
LM:
The only thing that is consistent in social media is change. It can be easy to feel overwhelmed, but if you stay focused on your audience, you’ll find success. I always approach every post by answering the question, “What’s in it for them?”

Businesswire | March 28, 2023

Lightbits®, the innovation leader in simple, flexible, and cost-efficient data platform solutions for any cloud, has announced that it has been accepted into the Microsoft for Startups Founders Hub, a program designed to enable organizations to ideate, develop, grow, and scale their offering on the Azure cloud platform by providing the necessary resources for every stage of their cloud-first journey. Microsoft Azure is a secure and compliant cloud platform trusted by organizations small and large, including 95% of Fortune 500 companies. As a member of the Microsoft for Startups Founders Hub, Lightbits will optimize its cloud solution so that organizations running on or planning to migrate their IO-intensive workloads to Azure can do so with the confidence that it’s on a scalable, efficient, and highly performant platform. The Lightbits Cloud Data Platform on Azure delivers agility, flexibility, high performance, and predictable and lower costs enabling migration of transactional and other latency-sensitive workloads to the cloud. The software-defined scalable architecture allows dynamic scaling of storage performance and capacity with consistently low latency and works within most orchestration environments such as Kubernetes, VMware or OpenStack. It offers the ability to provision high-performance persistent volumes to applications, protecting data from failures, while at the same time offering the rich data services enterprise IT organizations desire. Lightbits is easy to use, plugging directly into Azure Virtual Machines (VMs), and supports hybrid deployments offering the flexibility to port the license between on-premises storage servers and Azure storage-optimized VMs. “Prior to Lightbits, organizations supporting IO-intensive applications such as SQL and NoSQL databases had two options to achieve their performance requirements on Azure: use VMs with local NVMe devices or scale out the VMs and provision more cloud-native storage. Neither option was ideal since it lacked data protection at the storage level and significantly increased overall costs,” said Kam Eshghi, Co-Founder and CSO at Lightbits. “If performance, cost, scale, or data services were limiting factors for organizations migrating their storage-intensive workloads to Azure, Lightbits removes all of those constraints and offers a better cloud experience. I’m confident that our partnership-driven approach and involvement in the Founders Hub will result in a well-architected complete data platform for Azure.” About Lightbits Labs Lightbits Labs® (Lightbits), is remaking modern cloud infrastructure on a global scale and offers a Complete Data Platform for any cloud in VMware, Kubernetes, and OpenStack orchestration environments.

MariaDB’s New SkySQL Release Reimagines How Companies Control Cloud Database Spend

Businesswire | March 31, 2023

MariaDB plc (NYSE: MRDB) today announced the immediate availability of a new release of MariaDB SkySQL, a second generation cloud database service. SkySQL offers fully managed databases including its flagship distributed SQL product MariaDB Xpand for maximum resilience and scalability. The release brings new innovation that lets organizations better manage their cloud database costs. SkySQL now enables autoscaling, which scales resources when demand surges and back down when demand normalizes to save costs. SkySQL also introduces serverless analytics to uncover insights on all current data without the need for ETL and all while paying for only what is used. Cloud database services offered by public cloud vendors were the first to bring open source databases, such as MariaDB, MySQL and PostgreSQL, to the cloud over a decade ago. These first generation cloud databases emphasized convenience and price, however, today’s world requires extraordinary resilience, elasticity and performance. Accelerated by the pandemic, at an unprecedented level, people have come to expect more from the services and applications they rely on every day – whether it's travel related, buying tickets to a concert, banking and more. Second generation cloud database services combine deep database expertise and cloud-native technology to run across clouds and achieve unstoppable performance. “At our heart, we are a database company,” said Jags Ramnarayan, SVP and SkySQL general manager at MariaDB plc. “We take that deep-rooted experience and knowledge to offer a cloud database service that is tuned and optimized for the most rigorous of situations. SkySQL brings hard-hitting capabilities such as distributed SQL with our Xpand database and we make it incredibly easy to operate, monitor, run analytics and scale elastically, all while being able to control your cloud spend. With other clouds, costs tend to only go one way, up. With SkySQL, we also let you shrink the cost footprint automatically when demand is low. For everyone looking for exceptional scalability and performance of MariaDB databases in the cloud, MariaDB SkySQL is the solution.” Autoscaling: Dynamically Adjust to Changes in Demand Unlike first generation cloud databases for MariaDB, SkySQL enables autoscaling of both compute and storage in response to changes in demand. Rules specify when autoscaling is triggered, for example when CPU utilization is above 75% over all replicas sustained for 30 minutes, then a new replica or node will be added to handle the increase. Similarly, when CPU utilization is less than 50% over all replicas for an hour, nodes or a replica is removed. Users always specify the top and bottom threshold so there are never any cost surprises. When paired with Xpand, MariaDB’s distributed SQL database, autoscaling means never having to worry about unexpected spikes in demand. Double, triple or quadruple the amount of users initially expected? No problem. Xpand on SkySQL with autoscale turned on will automatically add nodes to handle the increase in demand. Once demand is reduced, SkySQL will reduce nodes so you only pay for the resources needed. Serverless Analytics: Analyze All Current Data, Pay Only for What Is Used No ETL is required to do analytics! SkySQL enables operational analytics on active transactional data as well as external data sources using a serverless analytics layer powered by Apache Spark SQL. This approach removes any inconsistencies between an analytical view and a transactional view. Only pay for the CPU consumed for analytics without any need to provision compute. Data scientists also have access to an Apache Zeppelin notebook. The notebook is pre-loaded with examples that demonstrate ways to run analytics on data stored in SkySQL. It can also be used to discover database schemas, running queries on data stored in Amazon S3 and federating queries to join data across SkySQL databases and S3 object storage. Availability The new release of SkySQL is now generally available (GA) on AWS and Google Cloud, and includes updated MariaDB product versions: Xpand 6.1.1, Enterprise Server 10.6.12 and ColumnStore 6.3.1. Sign up for SkySQL. New users receive $500 in credits to start for free. No credit card is required. Supporting quotes "Our first look at the new MariaDB SkySQL release left us very impressed, especially with the user interface and autoscaling capabilities," said John Hundley, principal software engineer at Hughes Network Systems. "Our IoT smart power plugs are distributed nationally across hundreds of locations, collecting data from various plugs at any given time. The number of locations and data rates can vary significantly. The user interface is very easy to use and will give us a better view into our database usage. We expect autoscaling to help us in responding to our workload changes to ensure we have the right resources allocated." “Cloud-native DBMSs, such as MariaDB SkySQL, use dynamic compute and storage, making their use of resources more efficient and enabling them to deliver optimal performance,” said Carl Olofson, senior vice president, IDC. “The choice of which cloud-native DBMS to use comes down to fit. SkySQL offers scale and availability, the ability to run in multiple clouds, and to handle both OLTP and OLAP workloads. It also leverages skills that are transferable to all clouds. If these qualities are important to you, SkySQL is a cloud-native DBMS to consider.” About MariaDB MariaDB is a new generation cloud database company whose products are used by companies big and small, reaching more than a billion users through Linux distributions and have been downloaded over one billion times. Deployed in minutes and maintained with ease, leveraging cloud automation, our database products are engineered to support any workload, any cloud and any scale – all while saving up to 90% of proprietary database costs. Trusted by organizations such as Bandwidth, DigiCert, InfoArmor, Oppenheimer, Samsung, SelectQuote and SpendHQ, MariaDB’s software is the backbone of critical services that people rely on every day.
