Twelve IT Project Disasters Demonstrate There are No “Safe” Choices
How can it be that projects continue to go wildly over budget or result in significant business disruptions but profits by systems integrators continue to rise? How is it that with fixed price contracts, modern implementation tools, and supposed sophisticated project management capabilities, clients are still getting burned?

Oracle's Georges Saab on the Impact of Faster Java Releases
When the new six-month cadence was announced there was some talk about "release fatigue." Have you seen that in the Java community?
It's sort of like asking, if your kids had Christmas twice a year, do you think they'd experience "Christmas fatigue?" The parents might, I guess. What I'm hearing people say now is that they are seeing so much evidence that updating to 9 and finding the move to 10 and 11 so smooth, they're excited about the new cadence and what's coming down the pike.

Oracle swings axe on cloud infrastructure corps amid possible bloodbath at Big Red
These US-based layoffs are part of a broad round of job cuts around the globe this month, said to range from 500 to 14,000 at the database giant. The biz employs about 140,000 worldwide.

You wait for one IT giant to show up with its sales figures, then two come at once: Red Hat, Oracle
Still swinging:

> "Jeff Bezos gave the command, 'I want to get off the Oracle database.' And they've been working on this for a few years to try to get off Oracle Database, and get on to the Amazon databases. It's taken Amazon, which is dedicated to doing this, several years, and they are not there yet. Nobody else is going to go through that forced march, to get onto Amazon databases, if Amazon can't even get there without this effort."

The computational legacy is Oracle's cloud opportunity today
> The company said it was saving most of its cloud-native announcements for KubeCon in December, but highlighted its new managed Kubernetes service (OKE, launched in May), platinum-level membership in the Cloud-Native Computing Foundation and growing support of open source projects (e.g., Fn, a functions project; Terraform for Oracle Cloud orchestration) as evidence that it has turned over a new, developer-friendly leaf. Oracle acknowledges a credibility gap with developers, but notes that it is at the start of making a transition similar to the one Microsoft has largely accomplished. As part of this effort, it may pursue acquisitions that give it access to customers that will help change Oracle's image and shift the culture within the company (perhaps similar to what IBM is hoping to accomplish by buying Red Hat).

Amazon move off Oracle caused Prime Day outage in warehouse
> The outage, which lasted for hours on Prime Day, resulted in over 15,000 delayed packages and roughly $90,000 in wasted labor costs, according to the report. Those costs don't include all the lost hours spent by engineers troubleshooting and fixing the errors or any potential lost sales.

I assume Amazon has, and will save much more than that by moving off Oracle.

Oracle Gets Cloudy: What’s Behind Their Change in Financial Reporting?
“Oracle did announce during the earnings call that cloud revenue was $1.7B for the quarter, but failed to break that out between SaaS and the combined IaaS and PaaS, as was previously reported. Also, with BYOL, it is impossible to know if customers are using those licenses in the cloud or on-prem, thereby obfuscating their cloud performance, which is now the number one factor in determining Oracle’s success against its peers. Oracle is claiming customers are deploying BYOL licenses in the cloud immediately, or have plans to do so in the near future, but it is impossible to know for sure.”

Vendors switching from on-prem to public cloud is hella hard, often deadly.

CIOs planning to snub Oracle for other cloudy vendors – analyst
“Murphy has told clients that a survey of 154 CIOs revealed negative spending intentions towards Oracle, with CNBC reporting that his note said just 2 per cent of respondents said Oracle was their most integral vendor for cloud computing. In contrast, 27 per cent chose Microsoft and 12 per cent opted for Oracle CTO Larry Ellison's cloudy nemesis Amazon. The analyst's note added that CIOs have told the analysts they are migrating off Big Red and onto Microsoft SQL Server, Amazon databases and PostgreSQL.”

As it shifts cloud focus to platform services, Oracle tries to hold on to its database legacy
‘“the way Oracle plans on differentiating itself from Amazon is by offering a complete suite of platform services at a higher level than infrastructure services,” Ellison said. Open-source databases like MySQL and MongoDB have become very popular with developers in the cloud era, but there are still lots of companies running Oracle databases on their own hardware as well as companies that want to maintain application compatibility with Oracle but through Oracle’s cloud services.’

Oracle stays the course on IaaS
Oracle reports its PaaS and IaaS revenue together, which makes understanding its IaaS growth difficult. FY16 to FY17 revenue increased from $0.9bn to $1.4bn, equivalent to 60% YoY growth. The company claims to have added 14,000 IaaS and PaaS customers to OCI since its inception, almost all of them existing customers of its licensed software. Oracle's overall revenue in 2016 was $37bn, so IaaS and PaaS still represent a small slice of the pie.

Oracle Solaris update plays nice with OpenStack | PCWorld
Oracle announced that it’s putting OpenStack into Solaris, which is good fun. James Niccolai asked for my thoughts on the topic for his story. I hadn’t been briefed, so it was just speculation, but here’s the full text of what I sent over: Solaris was always - and no doubt still is - technically advanced. For example, the zfs filesystem, dtrace, and zones were always tasty looking for Linux folks. At the end of the day, Solaris is a rock-solid UNIX system that got run over by Linux becoming equally rock solid: but Solaris is still what it’s always been, a solid operating system. Layering OpenStack over Solaris is a good step for Oracle who’s always been dodgy all the way up to Larry on cloud. I’m eager to see how the OpenStack community reacts to this - it’ll be all over the map (the first salvo will be to question Oracle’s genuineness, followed by “yeah, but how much will be open source?”), Oracle having a mixed reputation in the open source world, unfortunately. To pick one technology of interest: Docker is of course a darling of the cloud world for the last 6-7 months. Docker is built on Linux containers, which are painfully similar to Solaris zones. And since Docker is OpenStack…you can start to imagine that you’d be able to do Docker/container magic with Linux containers and/or Solaris zones. Then there’s zfs which has all sorts of file system magic: seeing how that gets applied to the OpenStack world will be interesting. Finally, Oracle’s database and ERP portfolio is widely used in IT departments now. If Oracle gets to the point where you can run its database and ERP apps on OpenStack (even if it’s Oracle “proprietary” version vs. the Red Herring of “OpenStack mainline”) then that’s a big deal for the OpenStack world. Here’s James full story.

"We’re not going to have that alone … our intention is to sell our customers IaaS and the same customer a highly differentiated platform-as-a-service which will let us get better margins and a highly differentiated suite of applications for the cloud."

Oracle Speaks Out on Java, One Year Later...Sort Of
"JavaOne used to be the event for Java developers," Coté said, "and a significant one for the development world in general. Folding it into Oracle OpenWorld sends the wrong signal (Oracle is more important than Java: it wasn't SunOne) and probably makes some Java people not want to attend. The Java world is much bigger than the Oracle world and it definitely deserves its own conference, if only in name."

"And while Oracle says they're happy for the community to carry the Ruby torch, I doubt that will happen. IDE work is difficult and requires much time and money, even if the final result is free."

Oracle offers student coders free access to JavaOne
"'Oracle certainly likes developers, no doubt,' he said. "[But] Oracle's core business model is cemented in enterprise product lines and milking revenue from them -- Siebel, PeopleSoft, Oracle databases and now Java,' he said. Most large companies are already sizable users of those technologies, Coté said. Therefore, Oracle has no need to court developers like an open-source company would in order to generate 'viral, bottom-up sales,' he said."
