Oracle is likely to continue buying companies in the future, as Davis noted the company is projected to generate nearly $14 billion in operating cash flow this year. In the past, Oracle has bought a number of smaller companies in a particular space, not going after the leader. It's managed to effectively use this strategy by putting its strong sales force to work, selling assets that maybe aren't at the top of the sector.
With Ellison, 69, showing no signs of slowing down, Oracle seems poised to continue its ways of slow but steady growth.
