Oracle Going All-In On The Cloud, Significant Share Upside [42261]
By Brian W. Wu

Brian W. Wu writes, "Oracle's (NYSE:ORCL) co-president and co-CEO Mark Hurd recently told Bloomberg that the giant database management software maker plans to have 95% of all its products available on the cloud by the time it holds its annual Oracle OpenWorld Conference in October this year, as opposed to 65% of Oracle's products currently running on the platform. In other words, the company has given itself an ambitious 6-month timeline to achieve an almost 100% cloud transformation.

Oracle's announcement is hardly surprising, considering that the company's cloud segment is its fastest growing.

Why the Internet of Things should matter to you [41982]
Erika Webb

"The Internet of Things (IoT) is this amorphous concept that might be hard to grasp in some ways and might creep you out in others," writes Erika Webb.

"Years ago, I remember running a usability study for a local regional Bell operating company who happened to provide cell phone service in addition to landline service. We actually asked people how they would feel about their pre-smart phones displaying the correct time and weather if they flew to a new city and several people looked a little shocked--how would the phone know where I was?
