LONDON, January 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

security solutions provider LOREX technology to enhance its customer experience and grow
its online operations. Meanwhile, Australian supermarket chain Coles selected Oracle to

any positive significance to this upcoming quarter’s release due to overwhelming
competition from rivals like Amazon, Apple and others in the cloud computing arena.
