Imagine what Oracle would be like if they had actually produced new code lines, as opposed to all those acquisitions. JDE, PS, Seibel, Sun (who I loved before Oracle ruined them, and I was only a distributor!) NetSuite, blah blah blah. All were considered ‘transformative’ Will lead to new ‘synergy’. Oracle Cloud apps? 10 years in, UI is a joke. User experience? Please. Being all things to all users on any device has led to something only 7% of the EBS could tolerate. On any device, it’s useless. How many dashboards have come and gone? Developed to hide the fact that no real transactions could be seen and managed end to end. Monitor the exceptions the young people say, you don’t need the details... until you do. Never comes up in a demo, only in the dismal adoption rate. I tried to warn them. I said they were on the road to ruin, by not doing the hard work. That was in 2014. Got riffed after a principle SC put the knife in my back, by telling the VP he could do my job. And since the Cloud app was years away, do it now to save money. They haven’t had a fortune 100 win in the space since. I’m sad about all the losses, but not those two. I hope they rot.
