Oracle stumbles over open source databases

orable db

Giant Oracle has stumbled upon open source databases and is reporting profit losses due to the latter. In the past, Oracle created a large database that dominated the market, but with the emergence of open source databases, many have preferred to use them and the business has collapsed.

In recent times, databases relational (SQL-based) and non-relational (NoSQL) They have emerged strongly and there are many very good alternatives to Oracle products. These alternative databases work well and do not cost anything, there is the key that they do not want to go to Oracle.

Oracle had a near monopoly in the field of databases, but now it can no longer even compete with some free projects. Oracle has to renew and rethink the database business if it wants to continue in the business, otherwise it will suffer more and more with the open source projects that are taking over the market. So Oracle just needs to assume that: The future is open-source!

    By God, what news is this? Nor does it say anything new. Nor does it provide data (amount of losses? Context?). There is no source. What a mental straw of news for God's sake.

    It is true, a source to verify the data would not be bad at all.
