Business Segments Description

New Software Licenses

New software licenses include the licensing of database technology software and applications software. Our software platform is based on an internet architecture comprised of interconnected database servers, application servers and client computers or devices running web browsers. This architecture permits end users to access business data and applications through standard web browsers, while allowing enterprises to manage business information and applications from centralized locations. Database servers manage the underlying business information, while application servers run the business applications. These servers are typically managed by professional information technology managers. In contrast, traditional client/server computing architectures require that each client computer run and manage its own applications and also be updated every time an application changes. We believe that the network-centric design of our software for internet computing improves network performance and data quality and helps our customers better control installation, maintenance and training costs associated with information technology infrastructure. Our integrated, component-based architecture can be adapted to the specific needs of any industry and is supported on many different operating systems, including Linux, UNIX and Windows.

New software license revenues include all fees earned from granting customers licenses to use our software products and exclude revenues derived from software license updates and product support. The standard end user software license agreement for our products provides for an initial fee to use the product in perpetuity based on a maximum number of processors, named users or other metrics. We also have other types of software license agreements restricted by the number of employees or the license term. New software license revenues also include other revenues, which consist of documentation and miscellaneous revenues.

Oracle Information Architecture

The Oracle Information Architecture, which underlies our database, application server and applications, is integrated, modular, and based on industry standards. The architecture is designed to eliminate information fragmentation and to provide companies with the consolidated information they need to run their businesses more effectively. Unlike proprietary, mainframe-type architectures, the Oracle Information Architecture is open and provides basic integration across multiple applications, whether Oracle’s or others, thereby allowing users to create a single, integrated information technology infrastructure. The foundation for the Oracle Information Architecture is a grid computing infrastructure that dynamically provisions processing power and storage to keep applications running smoothly and without interruption.

Database Technology

Our database technology software provides a platform for developing and deploying applications on the internet and on corporate intranets. Database technology software products include database management software, application server software, collaboration software and development tools that allow users to create, retrieve and modify the various types of data stored in a computer system. In fiscal 2004, we released a new version of our database technology software, Oracle  10g.

Oracle Database

The Oracle relational database management system is a key component of our internet platform and enables the storage, manipulation and retrieval of relational, object-relational, multi-dimensional and other types of data.

The Oracle Database can run applications with a very high degree of scalability and reliability across multiple computers clustered together. Designed for enterprise grid computing, Oracle Database 10g with Real Application Clusters acts as a single database in a cluster of computers that are linked together. Oracle Database  10g does not require data to be separated on multiple computers. Customers can simply add computers to the cluster, and the database software adapts to utilize the additional computing resources, thereby significantly improving application scalability and availability without requiring users to modify their applications. Customers can achieve significant cost savings by scaling up and eliminating fail-over servers, and by using lower-cost hardware as the basis of the cluster, instead of larger, more expensive computers.

Oracle Database 10g also contains self-diagnosing and self-tuning features, as well as features that facilitate customers’ ability to build, deploy and manage internet applications at lower costs. The key features of the Oracle Database include improved database availability, functionality, enhanced security capabilities and an integrated infrastructure for building business intelligence applications.

Oracle Application Server

The Oracle Application Server, a consolidated software platform based on industry standards, makes it easier for developers to build and deploy web services, web sites and portals and web-based applications. The Oracle Application Server supports a range of development languages and tools, including the latest J2EE technologies. Designed for grid computing, Oracle Application Server 10g incorporates clustering and caching technology, which significantly increases application reliability, performance, security and scalability.

The Oracle Application Server comes with an integrated set of business intelligence software including Oracle Discoverer, Oracle Reports and Oracle Clickstream. Oracle Discoverer is an intuitive web-based ad hoc query, reporting and analysis tool for end users. Oracle Reports offers an enterprise-reporting tool for the production of high quality reports. Oracle Clickstream provides a facility to analyze web site traffic. Additionally, the new Identity Management option for Oracle Application Server 10g Standard Edition makes it easier for companies to manage multiple identities and access privileges, which helps to safeguard information, critical systems and applications against unauthorized access.

The Oracle Application Server also includes Portal, which allows personalized portal sites to be rapidly developed and deployed, all with single sign on and security. Portal sites are assembled using “portlets,’ which are reusable interface components that provide access to web-based resources such as applications, business intelligence reports, syndicated content feeds and outsourced software services. With the wireless capability of Oracle Application Server 10g Enterprise Edition, portal sites can be made available to any wireless device.

Oracle Collaboration Suite

Oracle Collaboration Suite is a single, integrated suite that manages email and voicemail messages, facsimiles, calendaring, file sharing, search and workflow. The Oracle Collaboration Suite centralizes administration and lowers operating costs by consolidating email and file servers. Additionally, users are provided with one folder for their email, files, voicemail and facsimile messages. The Oracle Collaboration Suite is built on the Oracle 9i Database and Oracle 9i Application Server, supports enterprise-scale implementations, and offers high-availability features like rapid server failover, disaster recovery and automated backup. With Oracle Collaboration Suite, users access all their communications content via desktop applications, the internet, personal digital assistants or mobile phones, improving communication and collaboration.

Oracle Developer Suite

Oracle Developer Suite is an integrated suite of development tools designed to facilitate rapid development of internet database applications and web services. The Developer Suite contains application development and business intelligence tools and is built on internet standards such as Java, J2EE, XML and HTML.

The Developer Suite includes Oracle JDeveloper, a Java development environment for modeling, building, debugging and testing enterprise-class J2EE applications and web services. In addition, the suite contains Oracle Designer, a tool that allows developers to model business processes and automatically generate enterprise database applications, and Oracle Forms Developer, a development tool for building database applications that can be deployed unchanged in both internet and client/server based environments.

The Developer Suite also includes Oracle Warehouse Builder to consolidate fragmented data and metadata (machine understandable information for the web) pulled from packaged applications, custom applications and legacy applications. Oracle Warehouse Builder enables developers to graphically design the multidimensional database schema and to automatically generate and load the data warehouse.

Oracle Data Hub

Data hubs serve as repositories for metadata about the enterprise, defining key business objects such as customers, products, and employees. The Oracle Customer Data Hub is a packaged solution that enables companies to create a single enterprise customer database by consolidating customer data from heterogeneous systems. After the data is consolidated into the central customer data store, it can be standardized, cleansed and enriched by use of embedded functionality and then used by other applications with near-real-time synchronization. The Oracle Customer Data Hub can operate independently of Oracle applications and can be deployed even in non-Oracle environments. The Oracle Customer Data Hub differs from a data warehouse in that it provides near-real-time access to customer data without the need to move data between the transaction system and a data warehouse. The Oracle Customer Hub is designed to help companies gain a complete and consistent view of a customer across all transaction systems. We envision the creation of additional hubs to consolidate information related to products, suppliers, employees, or other metadata from a variety of systems and applications.


We offer a fully integrated suite of applications, the Oracle E-Business Suite, built upon a unified information architecture. Applications software includes financials, projects, marketing, sales, order management, procurement, supply chain, manufacturing, service and human resources, which can be accessed with standard web browsers and can be used to automate business processes and provide business intelligence.

The Oracle E-Business Suite, which is offered as a suite or on a component basis, provides integrated enterprise information that enables companies to manage their business cycles on a global basis and to solve end-to-end business problems.

The Oracle E-Business Suite utilizes Oracle’s full technology stack, including database, application server and developer tools. The E-Business Suite is an open architecture, which can be integrated to third party and legacy applications that exist in a customer’s environment.

The Oracle E-Business Suite applications combine business functionality with innovative technologies, such as workflow and self-service applications, that enable users to lower the cost of their business operations by providing customers, suppliers and employees with self-service internet access to both transaction processing and critical business information. Self-service applications automate a variety of business functions such as customer service and support, procurement, expense reporting and reimbursement. The Oracle E-Business Suite can also help companies automate and improve business processes associated with financials, projects, marketing, sales, order management, procurement, supply chain, manufacturing, service and human resources.

Software License Updates and Product Support

Software license updates provide customers with rights to unspecified software product upgrades, maintenance releases and patches released during the term of the support period, which is typically one year. Product support includes internet access to technical content, as well as internet and telephone access to technical support personnel. Product support is provided by local offices, as well as by our four global support centers located around the world. Software license updates and product support are generally priced as a percentage of the net new software license fees. Software license updates can be purchased separately from product support; however, only customers who purchase software license updates can purchase product support. Substantially all of our customers purchase software license updates and product support when they acquire new software licenses. In addition, substantially all of our customers renew their software license updates and product support contracts annually.
