Ellison Swipes at SAP's HANA

larry ellison  Oracle OpenWorld, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison fired a shot across the bow of SAP's HANA.  The fourth generation of Oracle's Exadata X3 Database In-Memory Machine was announced as part of the company's infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) solution offerings. The marketing battle heated up when Mr. Ellison let slip that SAP has something a bit smaller. I think her name is HANA. The in-memory computing solutions offered by both companies offer incredible performance improvements for companies

Silver Lining to Oracle’s Q4 Earnings Miss


ORACLE DOUBLES DIVIDEND; CLOUD SAAS REVENUES UP 50%; STOCK DROPS 9% The release of Oracle Corporation’s Q4 earnings was more heavily anticipated this year than in previous years. This was in part because Oracle had missed Wall Street targets in Q3 and the bulls and bears were both taking strong positions for or against the technology bellwether. Also, Oracle always makes a huge sales push in Q4

For example, how he is too focused on Team Oracle's performance in the America’s Cup yachting event, or his oft-quoted 2008 remark about cloud computing—“Maybe I’m an idiot, but I have no idea what anyone is talking about.” What these analysts have failed to see is that now Oracle is mounting an all-out assault on all fronts of the cloud—IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service), PaaS (Platform as a Service), and SaaS (Software as a Service). As noted by Read More

The Application Server War Escalates


At JavaOne in San Francisco, a battle ensued between BEA Systems CEO Bill Coleman, and Oracle CEO Larry Ellison. In a truly ugly display of how contentious the application server market has become, they argued over whose product was better, faster, cheaper. The keynote was so rife with charges and countercharges that they had to hold an after-keynote press conference to explain themselves.

How Detrimental Can a 2nd-In-Charge’s Departure Be?


In an unusually terse press release from June 30, Oracle Corporation, one of the largest providers of software for e-business, announced that Ray Lane was leaving his post as Oracle's President and COO.

larry ellison  Oracle's CEO and Chairman Larry Ellison is seen as the visionary, Lane was regarded by Wall Street and many industry analysts as Oracle's ballast, the one who translates the vision into execution. While Ellison's name is often associated with terms like 'flamboyant', 'aggressive' and 'ruthless', Lane's, on the other hand, has often been mentioned in the context of the company's 'moral compass', professionalism, and customer relationship nurturing. Therefore, it is no wonder that his resignation has sent Read More

IBM’s Unix Servers Eclipse Sun


IBM’s latest RS/6000 server, the high-end S80, outsold Sun Microsystems’ E10000 by almost three-to-one in the fourth quarter. Who cares – it’s the performance and price that may end up burning Sun.

larry ellison  a friendly chat with Larry Ellison about pricing. This still leaves IBM with an advantage, so Sun needs to increase performance, or reduce prices, or both, to go head-to-head with IBM. Since the processing power growth curve for the SPARC architecture seems to be rising slower than that for Intel, Sun might want to spend more time in that area. And focus less on going after Microsoft. User Recommendations With a sticker price for a nicely equipped system upwards of one million dollars, the S80 is Read More

Intraware Acquires Janus for its Extranets


Janus Technologies gets out of the (IT glass) house, hangs out at the eStorefront, and finds a new soulmate. Best of all, the company has a good chance to have a date with Commerce One. Sounds like a good idea to us.

This rounds out the Argis suite nicely. In turn, Intraware gets access to Janus' professional services group, and its development team based in Pittsburgh. In part due to the lower cost of operations, Intraware has begun shifting some development operations from Intraware's Orinda, California offices to Janus' Pittsburgh headquarters. However, we can't help Read More

Netpliance’s 4X Price Hike - Will It Spell Boom or Doom?


Netpliance, Inc., whose i-opener could be considered the first Internet appliance, recently added functionality, but also decided to raise its hardware “membership kit” price from $99 (down from its normal $199) to $399, in an effort to get profits from more than its online services. Will people be willing to pay an extra $300 for the privilege of using a 10-inch display?

larry ellison  availability of Oracle Chairman Larry Ellison's New Internet Computer (NIC), with more features (except no monitor), the freedom to choose your own ISP (including the NIC's own free ISP), and no required subscription charges, probably spells big trouble for Netpliance. We expect that Netpliance will last until early next year. By that time, the Gateway/AOL appliance will be out, the first MSN Web Companions should be out, and other large manufacturers should be scoring with their appliances. We do not Read More

Information/Internet Appliances


Information appliances, also called Internet or PC appliances, are a new market that appeal to those customers who want to reduce their desktop hardware expenditures. What are they, who makes them, and what do you get for your money?

larry ellison  pushed by Oracle CEO Larry Ellison a few years ago under the name of Network Computer . Whatever you call it, this market is new and growing. In recent months, most of the large hardware vendors (Compaq, Dell, Gateway, IBM) have started to announce products or plans for products. In addition, COMDEX '99 highlighted a slew of new PC appliances, from Microsoft, Intel, AMD, IBM, and others. This market has grown due to the desire to reduce the price of computing, primarily from a hardware viewpoint, but Read More

APICS 2009 From the Expo Floor: Is S&OP Coming of Age? - Part 5


Part 1 of this blog series talked about my attendance of the APICS 2009 international conference in Toronto, Canada in early October.

My overwhelming impression from the conference's expo floor was that its main value proposition this year revolved around the flavors

These include supply-side metrics like expected plant utilizations, production capacity shortages, and critical component Read More

The Incredibly Shrinking Platform--and Price!


The transformation to a new supply chain technology market wave is already occurring. That’s good news for some and bad for others. This article describes the next wave--SmallSmartFast--and its impact on end users and vendors.

[1] Larry Singer, Executive Vice President SUN Microsystems Conclusion and Recommendation: Get SmallSmart Fast Software firms, like any business, have to address their cost of sales, their cost of production. Like HP or Dell, as painful as it sounds (to me, at least), they have to face the realities of outsourcing, off-shoring etc., with all the risks that entails. (erosion of intellectual property, quality, etc.). Lower your software development costs, lower services costs, create Read More

Turmoil in CPU-Land

Pure-Play CRM Vendors: Choose an Integrated or Best-of-Breed Solution?


When selecting a CRM vendor should you go with a one-source solution, reducing the need for integration with other corporate data sources, or go with a best-of-breed approach, getting the best in each category but being left with standalone applications that must be integrated? This article compares the two approaches and offers some advice.

larry ellison  meet your needs? Oracle's Larry Ellison has publicly stated that he hates the fact that users modify his code. Users should just accept Oracle's vanilla version, along with its inherent user-interface and workflow model, and shape their company's behavior to fit the software. Huh? No wonder Larry is the second-most-hated CEO in software-dom (Mr. Redmond is the clear leader). Larry has the gall to tell you to not touch his code, and to do things his way or not at all. Even Siebel Systems suffers a bit Read More
