Re: Aconex
It could be a boon for Oracle for years to come, but the U.S. economy at least is due for a recession. Nothing specific on the horizon, but historically, they occur about every seven years.

Re: Aconex
With what seems to be a construction boom happening globally this is probably an arena that will be highly profitable in for Oracle in years to come. Noting that possibilities of " end-to-end construction project management through the cloud that touches all aspects of these large-scale endeavors," and a trillion dollars in business the company brings to the table it should all be for the good.

There is always room for one more
I am quite familiar with Oracle’s supply chain products but I didn’t know about its dedicated Construction and Engineering Cloud. In fact, this information comes handy right now. There is always room for one more company under the hood. Perhaps even more aquisitions, if the opportunity presents itself?

Re: Aconex
@Scott I didn't know they were interested in that vertical in particular. I suppose they have done their own reserch that made them convinced it is worth pursuing now.

Re: Aconex
@Ariella: The construction industry does have a lot of its own rules and terminology that it's a very highly specialized vertical within the enterprise. I know a lot of small companies specialize in construction, much like healthcare. I was actually surprised that Oracle has such a large part of its business dedicated to this.

Intereresting acquistion. Does one have to specialize to win some share of the construction market then?
