Oracle Corporation

Founded in 1977 by Larry Ellison, the small database start-up has grown into one of the biggest names in the database market around the world. For years, the company’s database products have been some of the most successful and widely used platforms in the industry. Massive growth in the tech industry and increased need for big data storage and analysis tools have transformed the small California start-up into one of the largest companies in the world in terms of market value. Oracle has shown great ability to adapt to the changing tech environment, quickly establishing itself in the cloud services business and constantly improving its database products. Despite the growing presence of free, open-source database software, Oracle’s quality and reputation within the industry has ensured that it remains one of the most popular platforms in the market.
