Re: Slightly off-topic question
From one "Anonymous Coward" to another, I completely agree with everything thing you say, but I will add a "however" or perhaps two "howevers." Clearly, critical business applications are moving from on-prem to the cloud. However, the transition is difficult, costly, and risky and in such circumstances, there is no guarantee Oracle customers will move to an Oracle cloud. In fact, many reasons stated by others suggests many won't. Second however, as new customers, not currently using Oracle plant applications in the cloud, there is even a smaller opportunity for Oracle to capture those opportunities. Consequently, while it is imperative Oracle transition to a cloud strategy, the outcome is far from obvious.
