Oracle is a software company which develops, manufactures, hosts and supports a wide array of software, cloud infrastructure, and hardware system products.
Oracle offers a fully integrated bundle of software and business hardware systems. The company has been #1 (40% market share) in the mature enterprise database market. Now the company is investing heavily to be a factor in several new trends including: cloud applications, platform services, and engineering systems.
Oracle is a serial acquirer, making over 50 billion in acquisitions the past decade. Most of these acquisitions have been less than 1 billion and strategically integrated into the Oracle ecosystem. Their broad portfolio of industry specific software solutions lock-in customers by offering individual customization features.
Oracle has a large established customer base from which it draws in assisting in transitioning from the old license and support business model to new cloud based subscription models. Software as a Service (SaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) cloud application services are experiencing astronomical growth for the company.
The legacy relational database segment of the company is in decline. This makes the new SaaS and PaaS services critical to the company’s growth and profitability. The company is falling behind Microsoft and Amazon in providing Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud services.
Oracle has used its pristine balance sheet and keen ability to recognize strategic acquisitions to acquire dozens of companies. These have played a key role in strengthening its product line up, advancing innovation, and increasing customer service and product support.
There is no doubt the company’s database business will continue to erode. These revenues must be replaced in cloud based services where there is plenty of competition from large companies such as Amazon, Microsoft, Salesforce, IBM, SAP, et al.
