until recently Oracle was primarily THE database company.
beside their core product the Oracle database (currently versions 11g and 12c) Oracle also has been offering for many years a number of software products around their databases:
- development tools
- applications server (roughly a web server based on Apache)
- an ERP (Enterprise Resources Planning) system called e-Business Suite (or short eBS)
since a few years (+/- 10 yrs) Oracle got into an acquisition frenzy and has been buying (in no particular order)
- competing ERP systems such as JDEdwards, PeopleSoft and Siebel
- competing databases (MySQL)
- and many more
as Oracle is the leading database (and related) product software company & the licenses are quite hight it has a "healthy" cash flow & has bought up many (smaller) database related companies - and will probably continue this practice in the foreseeable future.
beside those software companies acquisitions Oracle also bought in 2009 Sun which was originally a Unix (SunOS) and hardware (Sun workstations) company. despite many innovative developments Sun ended up having serious financial problems in the 2000s and in 2009 started talks with several of its competitions (Hardware & Software companies) about a merger. after those talks did not end up as hoped Sun agreed to be bought by Oracle.
thus Oracle is nowadays not only a database &related software company but a one-stop company that offers everything companies need for their ERP data center.
JDE Enterpriseone is a product developed by JDE prior to its acquisition by Peoplesoft which later got acquired by Oracle and is still sold nowadays by Oracle.Source(s): Oracle professional.
