Bill Clinton will give the keynote speech at Oracle's AppsWorld conference in New Orleans next week.
"There's not a lot of people who have sat in his seat," said Jennifer Glass, vice president of corporate public relations at Oracle (orcl). "His experience as president during all this technological innovation gives him a unique perspective."
Oracle would not disclose how much it is paying the former U.S. president for his speech Monday, but Glass said it is comparable to other speaking fees he has received. Last week, Clinton accepted between $100,000 and $150,000 to speak at Morgan Stanley. The move sparked the financial company's CEO to issue an apology to shareholders. --Cecily Barnes, Special to ZDNet News
