The Most Powerful People In Enterprise Tech
Mark Hurd co president Oracle
Hurd s boss, Larry Ellison, has a vision for Oracle s next decade. He wants Oracle to be the Apple of the enterprise, meaning a one stop shop for software and hardware. It s Hurd s job to execute on the vision. He s been retooling Oracle s salesforce to handle the brave new world of hardware sales.
His name has also been on the shortlist to become the next CEO of Dell should activist investor Carl Icahn s bid to take over Dell prevail (though Hurd says he has no interest in that job).
