"Sure there is a ton of money to be made from SaaS.

Does anyone think Oracle can deliver that?"

Of course they can.

Their old business model was based around screwing customers over with their licensing terms. Once their customers are in the cloud there's nowhere for them to hide, and Oracle will be able to audit their license compliance at any minute of the day, and hold a customer's servers to ransom.

SaaS just makes it easier for Oracle to fuck over it's customers.
