Thread regarding Oracle Corp. layoffs

The Honeymoon Is Over (what, no prenup?) Microsoft dumping Oracle

I'm sure you saw this, but it belongs here, as well. Get out, or face having your resume become obsolete, and you will join the ranks of the people who are certified in Novell, dBase, Compaq, and Windows 95. Every day you spend at Oracle, migrating to their tools, is another day you fall behind on some of the insanely cool technology other companies are using to get ahead.

Any company using O365 or G-Suite already has a huge productivity advantage over us. I'm out, hopefully soon.

Oracle not being uplifted by the "other" key cloud providers, say it isn't so. prices too high if you don't chose Oracle Cloud, say it isn't so. Oracle DB features and performance s—s on other cloud vendor sites because it is de-tuned, say it isn't so. Support lacking for other cloud provider instances of Oracle DB, say it isn't so.

Oracle is doing great. You who work for Oracle and complain about it do the rest a favor and find another company to go to.

Yep. Please, please, please. Leave the sinking Oracle ship now. The customers have spoken. We're done with Ellison. We're done with the arrogance. "Arrogance diminishes Wisdom."

Oracle didn't completely rely on Microsoft, true. BUT, MS gave it some legitimacy after Amazon bailed on Oracle db. Now Microsoft is doing the same thing. I work for a company now which is dumping Oracle in favor of Azure products, and others are doing the same.

At least Oracle's cloud is doing aight. LOLOLOLOL

Oracle's cloud is like a Trump rally: Not nearly as well attended as LE would have you believe.

Exactly one year after longtime rivals Microsoft and Oracle paired up on a cloud-interconnect deal, Microsoft is now saying that replacing Oracle on-prem databases with Microsoft cloud databases has become an absolute top priority.
Speaking at an investors conference on June 2, Microsoft corporate VP of data and analytics Rohan Kumar said, “So we definitely see a lot of discussions around that. In fact, what I will say is migrations, not just of SQL Server but a lot of the on-prem databases and their corresponding workloads to the cloud, is our #1 motion.”

No news here. Everyone is getting off of Oracle as fast as possible. It's not a cloud war, it's just good business driven by the customers. No shots fired.

Yeah, don’t learn this lesson the hard way, when O rifs you and your skills are circa 2000.

Wait. When did Oracle completely relied on Microsoft ? How does O365 or G-Suite related to Oracle product ?
Just to quote from your own link ... The MS guy has compared O with Ferrari. Its a good thing and shows that Oracle is still a leader. In software terms the features can be split as Microservices and deliverable. That gives Oracle more advantage than any other DB providers.
Oracle is doing much better than others and it will.

Only difference is it doesn't focus on growth, salary, political games and retaining its employees. It seems O does this intentionally to shed some people from old acquisitions. If you think your growth or salary is stalled, better look for other opportunities. It will never happen in O.
