It’s not news to say that the enterprise software industry is being disrupted by cloud. But unless you’re in that business, it may be easy to lose track of who’s being disrupted and who’s doing the disrupting. When I joined JD Edwards in 1999, client/server architecture was the big disrupter. Many mainframe and minicomputer application providers didn’t’ survive that transition.
This article, Oracle's Larry Ellison Calls Cloud A 'Much Better Business’, provides key insights from Oracle’s top three executives as to why both Oracle and our customers are thriving amidst cloud's disruption. Long ago, under Ellison’s guidance, Oracle’s strategy was to be one of the disruptors in the burgeoning cloud business. From the article…
This increased value to customers was validated last week in Oracle’s earning release as evidenced by a 28% increase in SaaS and PaaS revenue. Yes, the disruption of cloud has put some short term pressure on sales and profits, but Oracle is in it for the long run. As Brian White, a 5 Star Analyst at Cantor Fitzgerald puts it, “Oracle's transition to the cloud appears to be occurring much faster than the company anticipated.”
Organizations are exploiting enabling technologies—including cloud—to digitally disrupt and transform. Oracle provides a unique portfolio of SaaS, PaaS, IaaS, and DaaS solutions to help our customers achieve greater results, faster and with fewer resources.
