Fortune 500 Corporate Blog Review: #196 Oracle (ORCL)

By Li Evans

Oracle It's been a while since I've been able to find the time to do a review for the Fortune 500 Blog Project, but tonight I set aside time to take a look at #196 of the Fortune 500, that company is Oracle (ORCL).  This company is the world's largest enterprise software company, specializing in databases and software to help companies manage their entire business from orders to shipping to human resources.

Lots & Lots of Blogs!!
Being a database programmer in a former life, I am very familiar with the products that Oracle puts out to the public.  I also know a bit about the company and its technology history.  So, I was not surprised to find that Oracle had a blog.  What I was surprised to find is how thoroughly this company has embraced blogging!  It is utterly amazing and refreshing to see a company take this approach with communicating with its customers and general public.

Larry_ellisonOracle has a page full of links to top executive blogs, and then another whole section with links to Oracle employee blogs.  We're not talking 1 or 2 here, there's a lot of blogs listed covering a wide range of specialties of their employees and executives.

The only disappointment?  No blog from Larry Ellison, the Oracle SEO who is well know in the press for his comments about everything from Microsoft to the Government.  It would be great to get some insight from this amazing businessman about where he sees the direction of his company going.
