Oracle Rolls Up Its Sleeves To Shift Pace Of Digital Transformation

Today ‘digital’ is the talk of the town. We hear about digital technologies, digital data, digital media, digital transformation, digital marketing. Everyone wants to go digital. It is no mystery as to why they say, that data is the new oil.

With the rise of the Internet of Things and mobile devices, our lives and habits have clearly changed. Everything is now connected and if it’s not, it’s about to. Get ready, your fridge will soon be able to to read out your email and social media updates.

The main takeaway of going digital is, if you are not online, it’s like you do not even exist. But what goes into the process is careful planning and strategizing. Both your customers, current or potential employees are interested in the best possible experiences and opportunities. And businesses have no other choice but be on the lookout and continuously improve to engage and retain them.

One of the biggest companies helping to facilitate you being online is Oracle. The company sells database software and technology, cloud engineered systems, and enterprise software products—particularly its own brands of database management systems. In 2019, Oracle was the second-largest software company by revenue and market capitalization.

The original name of Oracle was Software Development Laboratories in 1977. They switched the name to Relational Software Inc. in 1979. It was Oracle Systems Corporation in 1982 after the project they won with CIA was declassified, and in 1995 they changed the name to Oracle Corporation as is known today.

For more than three decades now, it has been the leader in the database software industry with more than 420,000 customers and deployments in more than 145 countries with more than 10,500 employees around the globe.
