25 Facts You Should Know About Oracle

Oracle has come a long way in 30 years, from a small database management company to a power player in the cloud industry. We look at milestones in its history.

Oracle's wild ride, with significant highs and lows, has taken the company from a small database management firm more than 30 years ago to a power player in the cloud industry today. In between, Oracle transitioned itself from a database and enterprise software company to a software company with a hardware play, thanks partly to the company's history of acquisitions, including the mega-buy of Sun Microsystems for $7.4 billion in 2010. The company's reinvention continues as it positions itself to become one of the largest players in the cloud industry. Oracle has been building its cloud portfolio for more than a decade as it developed solutions at every level of the ecosystem and supported the Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) along the way. Channel Insider highlights major milestones in Oracle's history as well as some of the challenges it has faced.
