SPECIAL REPORT


During June's Q4 earnings call, Oracle executives announced Oracle's best quarter yet for cloud. Oracle is now the second largest cloud Software as a Service (SaaS) company in the world, and executives plan to close in on the top spot by growing SaaS bookings over 50 percent.

"Our cloud subscription business is now approaching a run rate of $2 billion a year," said Oracle President and Chief Financial Officer Safra Catz. "As our business has transitioned, more software revenues are being recognized over the life of a subscription rather than upfront. We're making this transition to cloud subscriptions and ratable revenue recognition while continuously increasing our top-line revenue and our bottom-line profits year-after-year."

In our special report, learn more about Oracle's recent call, and find out how Oracle's new Oracle Data as a Service for Business helps executives make better business decisions across the enterprise—in real time. Plus, hear from some of Oracle's leading experts on cloud, including Oracle President Mark Hurd, on the secrets to a smart adoption strategy.

"As an antidote to all that complexity and cost and confusion, cloud computing can help CEOs transform their businesses by understanding customers and prospects more intimately, pouncing on new market opportunities as they emerge, accelerating new-product development, and hiring and growing world-class talent," says Oracle President Mark Hurd.
