In the last three decades, Oracle has grown from a small start-up into the world's leading supplier of software for information management. Our technology can be found in nearly every industry globally, and in the data centers of 98 of the Fortune 100 companies. Yet Oracle remains an industry pioneer because we have always maintained the agility and entrepreneurial spirit of a much smaller company.

Today, Oracle is rolling out Oracle Fusion, the next-generation enterprise-computing platform.
