"We continued to improve our top line results again this quarter with total revenue growing 10% in constant currency," said Oracle CEO, Safra Catz. "These consistent increases in our quarterly revenue growth rate typically have been driven by our market leading Fusion and NetSuite cloud applications. But this Q4, we also experienced a major increase in demand in our infrastructure cloud business—which grew 39% in constant currency. We believe that this revenue growth spike indicates that our infrastructure business has now entered a hyper-growth phase. Couple a high growth rate in our cloud infrastructure business with the newly acquired Cerner applications business—and Oracle finds itself in position to deliver stellar revenue growth over the next several quarters."
"Cerner and Oracle together have all the technologies required to provide healthcare professionals with better information—and better information will fundamentally transform healthcare," said Oracle Chairman and CTO, Larry Ellison. "Better information will lead to better patient outcomes, better public health policy, lower overall healthcare costs, and a better quality of life—not just in rich countries—but throughout the world. During the pandemic, an award-winning Oracle cloud system called v-safeSM collected over 150 million patient records in the United States. An Oracle cloud system also managed vaccine programs in Ghana, Tasmania and dozens of other states and countries. We partnered with the University of Oxford to develop and deploy the Global Pathogen Analysis System (GPAS) that identified variants of the COVID-19 virus wherever and whenever they first appeared. A few weeks ago, we turned on a system to help researchers study a promising new HIV vaccine. There are so many opportunities to use information technology to improve healthcare and save lives. We made a good beginning during the pandemic—and we fully comprehend the importance of what remains to be done."
