Oracle predicts the future of computing is in the cloud and that's where it's headed. A leader in software (about 80% of its sales with a rising amount coming from cloud-based applications), it also provides hardware and services to help companies improve their processes. Best known for its focus on databases (its first products), it offers aid in areas such as data management, collaboration and application development, customer relationship management, and supply chain management. In recent years the company has aggressively used acquisitions to expand. To further boost its cloud offerings Oracle bought NetSuite in 2016 for $9.3 billion.
