Oracle announced that fiscal 2015 Q3 total revenues were unchanged at $9.3 billion. Without the currency headwinds caused by the strengthening of the U.S. dollar, the company said total revenues would have been up 6% as measured in constant currency. "Oracle now has a cloud revenue run rate of well over $2 billion a year. We are already the world's second largest SaaS and PaaS company," said Oracle chairman and CTO Larry Ellison during a conference call discussing Oracle's third quarter financial results.
Oracle has announced Oracle Data as a Service (DaaS) for Customer Intelligence. The new Oracle Data Cloud product is designed to help organizations increase customer understanding and extract insights from unstructured data assets. This information can then be used to create a complete view of customer input across social and unify and enterprise channels, identify and manage customer issues, understand how customer voice is impacting sales, and ultimately arm businesses with the intelligence to create happier customers.
