Sometimes you just have to hand it to Oracle(s orcl). A day after IBM(s ibm) announced a disappointing quarter, Oracle puts out a release to say it’s supplanted IBM as the second-largest software company in the known universe. Presumably, that’s after Microsoft(s msft), although Oracle doesn’t mention the “M” word in the release. If you want Oracle’s numbers click on the link but net, net, Oracle said over the last four quarters it reported $27.8 billion in software revenue compared to $25.7 million for IBM. Okay, IBM, your move.
