Oracle's math is a little mushy.
I find Oracle's reports a little confusing because at Oracle OpenWorld 2013 it claimed to have 150 ERP Cloud customers (with 50 in production). At Oracle OpenWorld 2014 it said it had landed another 263 ERP and Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) customers over the previous 12 months, bringing the total to 413 or so. In Friday's report, Oracle said it landed 250 new Oracle ERP and EPM customers in the most recent quarter -- 150 of which were net new and replaced legacy solutions with Oracle cloud."

That totals more than 663 by my math, so I'm wondering why the company isn't reporting "more than 650 cloud ERP and EPM customers." I also would have thought the addition of EPM into the ERP count would have sent those numbers higher? I guess Oracle's cloud equivalent of Hyperion EPM in the cloud is relatively new and doesn't have huge numbers just yet.

Can somebody from Oracle break out ERP and EPM and clarify at bit?
