Cloud is now king for enterprise giant Oracle. The technology company established its dominance as a provider of software and databases for enterprise data centers. Last year, Oracle surpassed IBM to become the world’s second-largest software vendor by pulling in US $29.6 billion in software sales in 2013. But as more and more companies are using the cloud to power computing software and applications, Oracle is now shifting its software strategy and will make all of its software available to download in a subscription model from the internet come this fall. There’s a good reason for his move: revenue from the company’s cloud software products rose 29% in Oracle’s Q3 earnings earlier this year. And according to the company, Oracle is on track to sell more than $1 billion of new cloud subscriptions this fiscal year.
