There is a phrase called “Dogfooding” means “eat your own food,” mostly, it is used in the tech business implying that use your own product while running your own company and it is a very familiar term in the tech world.
Evidently, Oracle’s author, CTO, and official executive Larry Ellison cherishes both the thought and the expression.
Oracle runs its own organization all alone programming items like its database and “dogfooding” was one reason why Ellison purchased Sun Microsystems in 2010.
He needed to possess the equipment that would make Oracle’s product run speedier. Furthermore, that same equipment is the thing that Oracle is utilizing to fabricate its cloud.
Ellison says that by owning the greater part of the tech that makes up its cloud, Oracle can offer less expensive costs to clients while dropping more benefit to the primary concern. What’s more, it additionally pushes the organization to continually patch up its own particular items to serve their clients, and themselves.
The main issue? Oracle’s CEO Safra Catz despises the thought of eating dog food, as reported by Den Howlett from Diginomica.
Identifying with cloud statistical surveying investigators amid an occasion prior this month at Oracle’s central command, the agile yet cheeky Catz put forth her defense for why Ellison – and others – ought to thump it off as of now:
“Larry is partial to stating we should eat our own dog food. First of all, don’t eat dog food. It’s bad for you. It’s dangerous. We eat our own cooking. That’s correct. We have to eat our own cooking. You know why? Because the entire scale of our business is to the point where I cannot meet the demands of all our customers unless I transform myself, meaning Oracle.”
