Oracle

Oracle is one of the largest enterprise software companies in the world and has the #1 market share in database management systems, although Microsoft and Amazon have gained share. Oracle's platform and infrastructure revenue (e.g. database software) is roughly 2x its applications revenue (e.g. ERP, HCM, CRM) for its overall on-premise software and cloud revenue. Oracle has high margins, strong FCF generation, and ~2/3 of its revenue is recurring. Oracle's FY 2018 non-GAAP revenue was 66% from cloud services and license support (recurring), 16% from cloud license and on-premise license, 10% from hardware, and 9% from services. Oracle's software revenue has significantly higher margins than its cloud, hardware, and services revenue. In its traditional software business model, Oracle generated lucrative upfront fees (new software licenses) and recurring maintenance fees (software license updates & product support). Oracle's cloud revenue, which is generally recurring, has resulted in revenue deferral and margin pressure. However, the rapid cloud growth is increasing the overall long-term opportunity, and SaaS margins are improving as the company gains scale. (31 Jul 2018)
