As Oracle continues in it's race to catch up with Microsoft and Amazon by investing in its Cloud business, we hear of layoffs on one hand and further recruitment on another.
Recent layoffs of Salespeople in the UK perhaps show the trend of hiring newer and perhaps cheaper folks out in Oracle Digital, Dublin.
Oracle themselves have also announced via press release of 5000 new Cloud professionals in the US being recruited. We also have rumours via The Register Oracle finally decides to stop prolonging the inevitable.. of possible layoffs in the US for the Hardware folks. Hardware revenues have been in the decline since 2014. On the 2nd August The Register also reported that John Fowler, the then head of Oracle Systems had resigned. See article here.
With OpenWorld coming up it will be interesting to see what is announced for the future of Oracle Systems. I suspect we will see a change in language and an increase use of the term Hybrid Clouds as Oracle push the Cloud Machines for on-prem and Gen 2- Bare metal for public cloud.
