Infrastructure as an Anchor


Oracle’s race to the cloud has offered multiple successes to its investors and some disappointment as well. No transition of this magnitude can be expected to run like clockwork, but the difference between revenues for Oracle’s SaaS apps for last quarter, $1.1 billion, and those for its IaaS apps, at $396 million, should at least get you thinking.

Many retailers jumped the gun, and have been offering special online deals for days. Cyber Monday in recent years has ranked as the third largest holiday shopping day, following Super Saturday and Black Friday. However, many online-only retailers, including Amazon, have started to offer pre-Cyber Monday sales to compete with traditional Black Friday in-store shopping madness.
