Thread regarding Oracle Corp. layoffs

Growth by acquisition

I wonder why Oracle chooses acquisitions among the opportunities to grow organically or inorganically. Isn't growing a business by acquisitions a greater risk than organic growth?

It avoids Oracle managers having to get their brains around new concepts long enough to see development through to the end. Instead they are just handed a working product to sell.

Oracle has been good at it for a long time and it has worked. Others, too until the protective veil is pierced and then, it is only a matter of time before things change. Human greed, misconduct, abuse, fraud, etc., attract investigators.

Question: Is LE fading away, losing interest and if, so his succession plan will matter.

Why?? It simply has worked in the past. Going forward who knows? They might be able to pull it off. But likely have been caught and will devoured by another predatory rival. The whole model is predicated on the smoke and mirrors of marketing hype. Oracle is really good at it. Remember Saas is just Oracle software with a different revenue structure. They really don't have the real estate for autonomous cloud offerings. They are dependent on co-location sites. In the great tradition of Oracle they will claim this as an advantage.
Why?? Because they get by with it. They buy good products that can be slowly squeezed until mere shells of what they were then discarded without consequence.

It is easier to plunder than to actually develop.
