Oracle’s profits up

Oracle reported a 17% rise in revenue to $7.1bn (#4.4bn) for its 1998 financial year, but reducing margins on its core database and applications products saw profits rise just 11.5% to $845m (#521.6m). Over the past year, however, Oracle has put more effort into its business applications, which include Oracle Financials and a host of operational modules. Software and services revenue in this area rose 58% to $1.8bn (#1.1bn), cementing the company’s position as the main rival to SAP, said Oracle.
