"Visit Oracle's Redwood Shores, Calif., headquarters and you'll
be surrounded by a sea of suits — sales professionals and
customer support experts who deal with CIOs and corporate
customers. But poke around and you'll find the blue-jeans-wearing
developers and engineers who design Oracle's products. That's where
Coekaerts fits in.
Down to earth and soft-spoken, Coekaerts doesn't own a suit but
Oracle still puts him in front of customers because he talks their
language: Scalability, reliability, security, performance.
