Back in April I started to compare the mega-vendor’s revenues and strategies related to how cloud changes everything.  With Oracle’s Q4 2017 out of the way, I thought I would update the material.

Cloud-based business applications, or SaaS, describe and support what a business actually does, and are therefore more important to a CEO and business leaders such as sales, marketing, supply chain, operations etc.  Cloud infrastructure does not describe what a business does; infrastructure (storage, processing and pipes) is more important to the CIO, and this describes what IT does (to support the business apps, among other things).  Platform as a Service is another kind of IT centric topic in that it provides a platform on which users can assemble their own custom apps, applets or large-scale applications.
