Oracle last week announced strong results for fiscal 2020 Q3. Total revenues were $9.8 billion, up 2% in USD and 3% in constant currency compared to Q3 last year. Cloud services and license support revenues were $6.9 billion, up 4% in USD and 5% in constant currency.

These consistently growing and recurring subscription revenues now account for 71% of total company revenues," said Safra Catz, Oracle CEO.


Think About It

Organizations have progressively pushed more infrastructure from on-premise data centers into cloud data centers. Some of this is driven by the desire to reduce costs, but more often than not, organi­zations are realizing that the infrastruc­ture required for the level of connectiv­ity, data growth, and analytics needed for success in a modern organization is well beyond the reach of homegrown infrastructure.
