    [$$] Ocado: ‘Microsoft of Retail’?

    Ocado shares climbed 5.5 per cent on Wednesday after Peel Hunt argued the company has the potential to become the “Microsoft of Retail” by transforming itself into a core platform for the sector’s logistics. James Lockyer, an analyst at the brokerage said the company should adopt the approach deployed by Microsoft to make its Windows operating system available to all PC manufacturers, unlike Apple which limited use of its MacOS to Mac computers. By becoming the open industry standard, Ocado would gain “higher penetration, stronger control and greater revenue”, Peel Hunt said.

    Do Developers Prefer Oracle over Its Peers?

    Earlier in the series, we discussed Oracle’s (ORCL) position in the IaaS (infrastructure-as-a-service) and PaaS (platform-as-a-service) spaces and compared its market share, revenue, and growth rate to those of its peers. Oracle’s PaaS and IaaS cloud offerings revenue, despite being at a smaller base of ~$416 million, has grown less than the revenues of top players such as Amazon (AMZN), Microsoft (MSFT), and Google (GOOG). While Google has reported growth of 120%, Microsoft’s cloud offerings have grown 98% on a YoY (year-over-year) basis.
