ROBERT STEELE: ORACLE has enough cash flow to beat Amazon (which at this time is poised to destroy IBM, Oracle, and Microsoft as well as Google and others). ORACLE appears to lack the imagination and incentive to break away from the same 19th century streamboat that houses IBM DB2, Microsoft SQLServer, and the other Code based systems. All of these data access systems — with Amazon's being far in the lead at this time — cannot deliver the data access reliability, the data integrity, or the data precision. Oracle, which is today where NSA was a quarter century ago on the Thin Thread front (NSA decided it would rather spend stupid than process smart) is simply not making the jump it could make to leap-frog Amazon. Neither ORACLE nor Amazon have solved automated decision making on the data in the cloud nor the obvious need to move beyond data centers. ORACLE has a sales force larger than its technical staff and the same legacy albatross everyone else has (including Amazon, they just have a ten year lead and will collapse ten years after ORACLE). My bet: Thin Thread + Trump Truth Channel. Coming soon.
