Oracle Corporation was founded in 1977 by Larry Ellison, along with Bob Miner and Ed Oates. The first company, named Software Development Laboratories, was changed to Relational Software, Inc. (RSI) in 1979. By 1983, RSI had been named Oracle Corporation after its flagship product. Ellison remains today as the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

A working prototype for a relational database was already in existence when Ellison had seized on an opportunity other businesses hadn't then recognized; an enormous business potential was staring him in the face, if such a model were to be commercialized. Managing information, through relational databases, is now standard procedure across the entire business spectrum. In addition to its database products, Oracle delivers an application server, an enterprise manager, an E-Business Suite, a Collaboration Suite, data hub products, and development tools.

Oracle's innovations have made its business applications available through the Internet, and other software companies now do the same thing. An increasing number of software companies are also beginning to see the value of designing their products to work together. Besides making sense and saving countless hours of work, this results in better public relations and greater profitability.

Oracle Training Sources

Oracle Certification, whether for Database Administration (up to 217 class hours) or Internet Application Developer (up to 146 class hours) requires intensive training. Courses are available through consulting companies that will teach at a customer location, or through universities, such as the University of New Orleans Computer Technology Training Center. However, Oracle products may best be learned from Oracle University, since their experts know the product well. Training formats include: Instructor-Led In-Class, Instructor-Led Online, Self-Paced CD-ROM, Self-Paced Online and customized special events at the client's site.
