Oracle spends 1.8 billion on research & development in 2006

According to this article by CIO Insight, Oracle spent nearly two billion dollars in 2006, ranking Oracle #6 in the top IT spenders on research and development, ahead of Google.

This demonstrates Oracle's commitment to hang-on in the competitive relational database market and to expand their presence in the ERP space, some money being spend on "project fusion" to integrate their diverse family of acquired ERP products like Peoplesoft and J. D. Edwards.

The highly anticipated Oracle 11g software promises to be revolutionary, building the foundation for a self tuning database and accommodating the new movement toward massive database consolidation onto large monolithic servers.  Oracle 11g also has features for predictive modeling, using historical workload data to predict future performance trends.
