SAFRA KATZ has turn out to be the only CEO of Oracle following the loss of life of her co-CEO Mark Hurd in October this 12 months.

The scoop was once showed closing week following the disclosing of the corporate’s 2nd quarter effects.

“We haven’t any plans for having a 2nd CEO, it was once an bizarre state of affairs,” Oracle co-founder and chairman Ellison mentioned. “Mark and Safra had been an incredible workforce, however now we have entire self belief in our present workforce.”

Revenues in the second one quarter had been up through only one in line with cent to $9.61bn, in comparison to the similar quarter a 12 months previous, whilst internet source of revenue was once down, additionally through one in line with cent, to $2.32bn. The corporate is suffering on plenty of fronts with cloud computing offering another for purchasers who, for a few years, have really feel that they’ve been held captive through Oracle.

Certainly, regardless of the corporate’s claims, there is scant indication of a surge in revenues from shoppers flocking to the Oracle Cloud.

Catz claimed that the autumn in Cloud and On-Premise Licence revenues was once all the way down to shoppers moving to cloud over purchases of device licences – this would, in all probability, be illustrated extra obviously if best the corporate was once in a position to file its cloud revenues become independent from its device revenues. µ
