Oracle CEO Mark Hurd reads 'mean tweets' about his 2025 vision



These predictions included that 80 per cent of IT spending would be on cloud services, that the number of corporate-owned data centres would drop by 80 per cent and that there would be two SaaS providers by 2025.

His prediction is that the future belongs to Amazon (AWS) and Microsoft (Azure) with Oracle doomed to "also ran" status along with other bit part players like IBM? Interesting. Personally I think the likes of Alibaba will still be significant (at least regionally), but mostly I would have to agree with Hurds prediction of progressive Oracle marginalization. I'm surprised Leisure Suit Larry lets him voice this publicly though.
