The major competitors of Oracle

Oracle is an American company operating in the computer software sector which has established itself among the leaders in this sector in just a few decades. Although it's the world's number two in this field, Oracle remains highly competitive with various relatively large companies, some of which are also listed on the stock market.

Microsoft

Oracle's main competitor is, for the time being, the giant Microsoft remaining undefeated for several years.

Other competitors

Then come other companies more or less dangerous for Oracle such as Symantec, EMC, VMware, Salesforce and Intuit which should also be monitored. Finally, some outsiders such as Adobe, CA Technologies, SAS, Cisco, Dassault Systèmes, Siemens, Fujitsu, Autodesk, Citrix or Google can represent a longer-term threat for Oracle.


The major partners of Oracle

Here are some examples of the important partnerships that the Oracle group has established in recent years.

Salesforce

In 2013, the Oracle group partnered with one of its main competitors, namely Salesforce, under a 9-year contract for the integration of their Cloud. Lots of software developed by Oracle have since become Salesforce technological standards.

Microsoft

The same year, Oracle set up another partnership, once again focusing on the Cloud, with the giant Microsoft which is its main adversary.

The factors in favour of a rise in the Oracle share price:

To begin, it's important to remember that the success of the Oracle business is largely due to the fact that Oracle offers high quality products. The group is able to offer high quality products on the market, particularly thanks to its strategy of targeted acquisitions.

The Oracle group can also base its success on its impressive work force. To date, over 130,000 people are employed by the company around the world which allows it to benefit from a strong talent pool.

Another undeniable advantage of the Oracle group of course concerns its positioning in certain very specific segments such as on the database market for businesses. In fact, this leadership contributes to improving its brand image but also approaching private and professional customers more easily.

With regard to the great benefits of the Oracle group, the strong capacity for innovation of this company is essential. Oracle invests a large part of its budget in research and development and continuously tries to develop new high-quality products that meet various needs in order to outplay the competition.

Of course, the highly diversified product portfolio available to the Oracle group is another significant advantage, especially since some of the products have become true benchmarks on the market. In particular the Oracle database, Enterprise Manager, Fusion Middleware, Oracle servers, Oracle workstations and even storage solutions.

We also appreciate the strategy of diversification of its activities implemented by Oracle. In addition to marketing its benchmark products, the group has decided to put forward service offers such as SAAS, PAAS, consultancy services and even financing services which have enabled it to gain even greater loyalty among its customers and to broaden its prospect base.

The Oracle Group's communication strategy which is very well thought through is also appreciated and allows it to closely impact the market. The group particularly sponsors a large amount of events around the world, therefor gaining visibility without going through conventional advertising.

The factors in favour of a drop in the Oracle share price:

First of all, the fact that the Oracle group is currently one of the market leaders isn't just an advantage. This leadership often leads Oracle to face proceedings and certain controversies. Some have already had a negative impact on the brand image of the company in the past and the group is liable to see new conflicts of this type.

Finally, the second and last weak point of the Oracle Company of course concerns its sector of activity which has experienced very significant growth in recent years. Although this sounds like good news, it also means that the competition is both important and strategically very aggressive. This particularly concerns the consultancy and IT segment companies which are increasingly present and are partly responsible for limiting the growth of the group's market shares.

As you can see, Oracle's weaknesses are very slim compared to its advantages. However, you shouldn't just take the quantity of these arguments into account but also their possible weight on the decisions of traders. Because a single element can influence the evolution of a trend in itself when the market conditions are consistent.
