Oracle Q2 Earnings And Revenues Surpass Estimates

Moreover, the next-generation autonomous database launched by Oracle, supported by ML, is gaining traction. In the reported quarter, the company added new Autonomous Database cloud customers. New product introductions, including new OCI managed services, are likely to bolster growth in this category. Markedly, autonomous database in Gen2 public cloud infrastructure is witnessing rapid adoption.

Oracle’s latest Exadata Cloud@Customer service offering is also gaining traction among on-premise customers.

Noteworthy deal wins of OCI during the reported quarter include MercadoLibre (MELI - Free Report), Conduent (CNDT), Nippon Life India Asset Management, OUTFRONT Media, DeepZen, Workhuman, Temple University, and IQAX.

Oracle, currently carrying a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold), is making every effort to enhance functionalities of cloud-based applications, which is encouraging adoption.

These initiatives are expected to provide the company an edge in the Database-as-a-Service market and reinforce its competitive position against Amazon’s (AMZN) Amazon Web Services.
