Founded in 1977 by Larry Ellison, Bob Miner, and Ed Oates, Oracle Corporation quickly became a global leader in database software and technology. Originally named Software Development Laboratories (SDL), the company introduced the first commercially available SQL-based relational database management system, revolutionizing data management for businesses.

Larry Ellison's vision and leadership propelled Oracle to prominence, expanding its offerings to include cloud computing, enterprise software, and hardware systems. Despite facing regulatory and competitive challenges, Oracle remains committed to innovation and delivering robust, scalable, and secure solutions to businesses worldwide.
