Oracle engineers hardware and software to work together in the cloud and in your data center–from servers and storage, to database and middleware, through applications. Oracle systems: Provide better performance, reliability, security, and flexibility Lower the cost and complexity of IT implementation and management Deliver greater productivity, agility, and better business intelligence For customers needing modular solutions, Oracle's open architecture and multiple operating-system options also give customers unmatched benefits from best-of-breed products in every layer of the stack, allowing them to build the best infrastructure for their enterprise. More than three and a half decades ago Larry Ellison saw an opportunity other companies missed: a description of a working prototype for a relational database. No company had committed to commercializing the technology, but Ellison and co-founders Bob Miner and Ed Oates realized the tremendous business potential of the relational database model—but they may not have realized that the company they formed would change the face of business computing forever. Throughout its history Oracle has proved it can build for the future on the foundation of its innovations and its intimate knowledge of customer challenges and successes analyzed by the best technical and business minds in the world. The company has leveraged its immense size and strength to serve its customers, and to implement key technology and business decisions that upend conventional wisdom and take its products and services in new directions. Innovation is the engine of Oracle's success. Oracle was one of the first companies to make its business applications available through the internet—an idea that is now pervasive.
