Oracle (NYSE: ORCL) reported Q2 EPS of $0.61, $0.01 better than the analyst estimate of $0.60. Revenue for the quarter came in at $9.07 billion versus the consensus estimate of $9.12 billion.
"For four consecutive quarters our Cloud SaaS & PaaS revenue growth rate has increased," said Oracle CEO, Safra Catz. "As we get bigger in the cloud, we grow faster in the cloud. Our non-GAAP constant currency SaaS and PaaS growth rate is now up to 89%. This growth rate acceleration has driven our quarterly cloud revenue over the $1 billion mark. When salesforce.com crossed the billion dollar milestone their SaaS and PaaS subscription growth rate had slowed down to 36%, even after you include all their acquisitions."
"Oracle has now passed salesforce.com and become number one in SaaS cloud applications sales to customers with over 1,000 employees according to the latest IDC report," said Oracle CEO, Mark Hurd. "In other words, this year we are selling more enterprise SaaS than any cloud services provider in the world. We expect to book over $2 billion in new annually recurring cloud business this year alone. And, with the acquisition of NetSuite, we plan on being the #1 cloud applications service provider for companies with less than 1,000 employees as well."
"Our Database as a Service cloud revenue was $100 million for the quarter, driving growth in our overall database business," said Larry Ellison, Oracle Chairman and CTO. "We expect our Database as a Service and IaaS businesses will grow even faster than our skyrocketing SaaS business. A lot of people were taken by surprise when IDC ranked Oracle #1 in Enterprise SaaS, surpassing salesforce.com and overcoming their fifteen year head-start. Stay tuned. More surprises coming. I think we're going to do even better with IaaS and the Oracle database in the cloud."
