An Interesting Perspective on Oracle's Mobile Strategy
By Carlos Chang-Oracle on May 26, 2014
Oracle’s well known for being an acquisitive company. On average, I think we acquire about 1 company a month. (don’t quote me, I didn't run the numbers) With all the excitement around mobile, mobile and wait for it… mobile, well, you know...what' s up with that?
Well, just to be clear and quote Schultz from Hogan's Heroes "I know nothing! Nothing! " But I did recently run across this blog by Kevin Benedict over at mobileenterprisestrategies.com covering this very topic, Oracle Mobility Emerges Prepared for the Future, a little (fair use) snippet here:
"History, however, may reward Oracle's patience. While veteran mobile platform vendors (including SAP) have struggled to keep up with the fast changing market, R&D investment requirements, the fickle preferences of mobile developers, and the emergence of cloud-based mobile services, Oracle has kept their focus on supporting mobile developers with integration services and tools that extend their solutions out to mobile apps.”
It’s an interesting read, and I would encourage you to check it out here.
