That's it Oracle's desperate and out-of-breath sprint to the cloud is showing, it's laying off pointing a finger at an urgent need to realign itself more towards the cloud.
welcome to ViralML, this video will be classified under 'state of the industry'
From what I've read they've laid off in the US and India (being the second largest presence for ROrcle).but details are sparse. From what I've been able to infer - some 100 in India and 500 in the US but can't confirm exact numbers as I've been lifted from various article and newsgroups.
Layoffs anywhere or in any form stink for those being laid been off. Doesn't matter if you're in the middle of nowhere or in NYC or CA -
It's a nightmare as every situation is. different. like being on a work visa or don't do well on job interviews
I've been laid off and know how it feels - - I feel for you!
Let's look at some numbers -
Two things I want to cover in this video - the new database is the cloud - and a companies reputation.
the move to cloud-based databases is here and in 5-10 years, the days of local DBs may be completely gone.
It will be more secure to do something on the cloud than local, I imagine even Hippa, Ferpa, GLBA certified data centers will only be able to be online, anything local will be disqualified.
reputation does come back to haunt you. this is a stark reminder for all of us, entrepreneurs, budding entrepreneurs, small companies, big companies.
I've worked around DBS for over 20 years.
and I can tell you, Oracle started with a solid reputation and MSSQL was desperately trying to catch up - and they eventually passed the and know Oracle was never in new the conversation for new databases, it was either MSQL, or opensource like Postgres.
Oracle is still a big player probably from its existing enterprise accounts but it has to pivot quickly, just like Microsoft did with Azure.
Oracle definitely got the message in the last 5 to 10 years and has been desperately trying to pivot and follow in Microsoft's brilliant footsteps.
