Oracle's Integration Play: Beyond Databases
October 13, 2009[From Datamation]
Oracle co-presidents Charles Phillips and Safra Catz had a tough act to follow after last night -- with their boss Larry Ellison issuing a challenge to IBM and Sun's Scott McNealy delivering a nostalgic look at the past and future of the company he co-founded.
But they tried, talking about about what they described as the "backstory" of Oracle's integration strategy. In doing so, Phillips and Catz also offered a look at Oracle's thinking behind not just its acquisition of Sun, but of all of its acquisitions to date.
