Oracle may face challenges in 2007

According to the Motley Fool, Oracle Corporation may face some challenges in 2007:

  • Applications - Oracle's eBusiness suite is threatened by competitors IBM and Microsoft.
  • Open source database - PostgreSQL, MySQL and EnterpriseDB remain threats to Oracle database sales.
  • Middleware - Oracle nemesis Red Hat has just purchased the popular JBOSS middleware.


Opportunities for Oracle in 2007

The Motley Fool also notes some great opportunities for Oracle in 2007, and notes that Oracle stock is still a good investment.

"Of course, expect Oracle to buy more companies. But the deals are likely to remain small (below $1 billion).

Also, expect it to focus on certain industry "verticals." This has been an effective strategy, as seen with its acquisition of Retek. The deal provided Oracle with lots of traction with retail customers.

In fact, Oracle is now doing the same in financial services, such as with its transaction for i-flex. There is also the move into telecom with the acquisitions of MetaSolv (Nasdaq: MSLV) and Portal Software.

Moreover, the firm should benefit from a major trend in information technology (IT) in that customers want fewer vendors. Simply put, there is much value in having applications and databases that work together seamlessly.

Because of its $19 billion in acquisitions over the past few years, Oracle now has a broad product offering."
