  • Oracle Corporation F3Q09 (Qtr End 02/28/09) Earnings Call Transcript

And we grew faster than SAP in every region around the world, clearly taking market share. Our software license updates and product support revenues, which hit $3.0 billion this quarter, are growing nicely off a very large base, and our customer renewal rates and satisfaction levels continue at record highs. This quarter clearly demonstrates the strength of our diversified portfolio products, the breadth of our enormous customer base, and the strength of our operating model.
