Father of Oracle Bone Inscriptions: he ranks the sixth in the world, but believes in “America first” as his life creed

When I was young, I was full of idealism. Although I changed three universities, I didn’t even have a graduation certificate. Ellison, who had achieved nothing before the age of 32, was still conceited that he would never die in a company. Later, relying on the database list of the CIA, it established Oracle, the largest database company in the world. According to the latest relevant data, Larry Ellison is worth as much as 66.5 billion US dollars, ranking sixth in the world. As a Russian immigrant, Larry is undoubtedly successful, but he is a complete failure in judging Sino US relations in the new era. < / P > < p > some people may think that in the 900 layoffs in May 2019, Oracle’s implementation of N + 6 compensation for overseas employees is humanized. However, it is undeniable that Oracle has never regarded the overseas market as its “purse”, which is also reflected in many aspects. < / P > < p > first of all, Oracle’s core R & D center has always been in the United States. Overseas R & D centers only do some updates, solutions and API related work for overseas versions. Since 2015, there has been a rumor that Oracle will build an overseas R & D center. So far, there is no following. < / P > < p > different from Bill Gates’s idea of attaching importance to overseas markets, there are almost no mainland employees above the M5 level of Oracle, and only a few executives are registered in Taiwan or Hong Kong. Ellison intentionally or unintentionally keeps a “safe” distance from overseas markets. In fact, such a persistent attitude towards who is the first and who is the second has greatly affected the development of Oracle in the overseas market. Although Oracle is the world’s largest database company, Oracle is everywhere, but it has been unable to develop its own cloud data center for a long time. < / P > < p > on the one hand, Oracle takes too much care of its own feathers. Cloud technology is bound to lengthen the profit return cycle. Oracle is not willing to easily change its most advantageous database business. On the other hand, we will never let overseas engineers have access to their core technologies. Oracle has hesitated in the progress of overseas localization and has been showing its arrogance. For example, Microsoft, Amazon and SAP have all found local companies to settle down and break through the policy barriers, “but Oracle has always been arrogant, it does not look for anyone, waiting for others to find it.” In fact, Oracle has not made great efforts to cooperate with overseas local companies, and has also sought cooperation with Tencent cloud. Unfortunately, the proportion of Oracle in Tencent’s business is too small, and the business volume is not equal. How can it last for a long time? < / P > < p > in addition, Oracle has also come up with other ways to evade regulation to push its own cloud products, such as launching cloud all-in-one machine in the name of Digital China. Although this kind of risk-taking method can be tried, it is not a long-term plan after all. If we want to develop for a long time, we still need to take advantage of the trend of globalization. To be fair to all, many foreign enterprises are acclimatized overseas, and most of them have committed the same common fault as Oracle Bone Inscriptions: cultural identity is not well done. In a word, they want to develop their own business overseas, but they are not willing to share their precious technology with others. In hesitation and wriggling, they miss a good opportunity to develop themselves. They show their talents with high attitude in strategy, but they don’t pay attention to the advantages of emerging big data cloud integration in tactics. Oracle may be the number one database company in the world now. If it doesn’t change in time, who can guarantee how long this advantage can be maintained? < / P > < p > why not learn from the golden mean of Chinese culture, not stick to the inherent technical forms, but also appropriately decentralize the overseas technical centers. Maybe it is not suitable at the beginning, but in the long run, the company has been developed and expanded, and its advantages will naturally expand. Why should we not keep the first place when the overseas market is so large? It’s a lot more cost-effective than Ellison’s “America first” chastity archway, isn’t it?
