Oracle CEO lays out cloud computing strategy

Oracle unveils suite of 'cloud computing' services - "The 35-year-old company hailed its technological transition Wednesday at its Redwood Shores, Calif. headquarters, where hyperbolic CEO Larry Ellison announced plans to distribute more than 100 business software applications over the Internet instead of selling them as products that have to be installed on individual office computers. The concept of leasing software applications reachable on any Internet-connected device is known as "cloud computing." It's an idea that Ellison has frequently mocked as a passing fancy, but his comments Wednesday made it clear that he realized some time ago that the trend had become a serious business. Ellison said it took thousands of Oracle engineers the past seven years to develop the company's suite of cloud computing services. The work was code-named "Fusion," but Ellison acknowledged it became so disjointed that he understood why it was skewered as "Project Confusion.""
