From their website: Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL) is the world’s largest enterprise
Three decades ago, Larry Ellison saw an opportunity other companies missed when
he came across a description of a working prototype for a relational database
and discovered that no company had committed to commercializing the technology.
Ellison and his co-founders, Bob Miner and Ed Oates, realized there was
tremendous business potential in the relational database model—but they may not
have realized that they would change the face of business computing forever.
With the agility of a much smaller company, Oracle has proved throughout its
history that it can build for the future on the foundation of years of
innovation, intimate knowledge of its customers’ challenges and successes, and
the best technical and business minds in the world. The company has shown both
the ability to leverage its immense size and strength to serve its customers, as
well as the capacity to make decisions that upend conventional wisdom and take
its products and services in new directions.
After 30 years, Oracle remains the gold standard for database technology and
applications in enterprises throughout the world: The company is the world’s
leading supplier of software for information management, and the world’s second
largest independent software company. Oracle technology can be found in nearly
every industry, and in the data centers of 98 of the Fortune 100 companies.
Oracle is the first software company to develop and deploy 100 percent
internet-enabled enterprise software across its entire product line: database,
business applications, and application development and decision support tools.
