(Bloomberg) -- Oracle Corp. will move its marquee annual user conference to Las Vegas, abandoning its longtime venue of San Francisco due to the rising cost of visiting the city and its homeless crisis.Oracle’s OpenWorld will be held in Las Vegas beginning next year, the San Francisco Travel Association said Tuesday in a statement. The travel group, in an email reported earlier by CNBC, said the software company committed the conference to Las Vegas for three years, costing San Francisco an estimated $64 million. Oracle, headquartered about 22 miles south of San Francisco in Redwood City, California, told the travel authority that its conference guests were unhappy with San Francisco’s dirty streets and costly hotel rates, according to CNBC.Las Vegas is a key destination for technology conferences. Amazon.com Inc.’s cloud-computing arm, Dell Technologies Inc., Adobe Inc. and Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co. are just a few of the companies that host conferences in the desert city -- drawn to its large venues and inexpensive hotel room rates.Oracle declined to respond to requests for comment on the move.Oracle also holds OpenWorld conferences in Dubai, London, Singapore and Sao Paulo. The company encourages customers and partners to “register for an OpenWorld near you,” reducing the importance of the San Francisco gathering, where the company unveils new software products. The San Francisco OpenWorld generally attracted about 60,000 attendees. For years, the conference has been overshadowed by Dreamforce, rival Salesforce.com Inc.’s annual confab that the company describes as the world’s largest software conference. Dreamforce had more than 170,000 registered attendees in November.San Francisco hasn’t been a happy home for OpenWorld or Dreamforce for years, with residents complaining about street closures caused by the conferences and a surge of pedestrian traffic downtown. Local hotels swell room rates in anticipation of demand among attendees.Oracle held the first official OpenWorld conference at San Francisco’s Moscone Center in 1996, according to its website. The company’s user gatherings date back to 1982, when 50 attendees gathered for International Oracle Users Week at a hotel in San Francisco.To contact the reporter on this story: Nico Grant in San Francisco at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Jillian Ward at firstname.lastname@example.org, Andrew Pollack, Robin AjelloFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
The directive is the first publicly known instruction with specific targets given to Chinese buyers to switch to domestic technology vendors, and echoes efforts by the Trump administration to curb the use of Chinese technology in the US and its allies. The US recently proposed that technology sales into the US from “foreign adversaries” would be vetted for national security reasons, and has been pressuring European allies to freeze Huawei out of 5G infrastructure projects.
(Bloomberg) -- Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co. unveiled a software platform to help customers manage their increasingly fragmented information technology, marking another step in the server maker’s efforts to win a bigger place in a world shifting to cloud computing.The portal, called GreenLake Central, lets clients evaluate the cost, performance, and security of their various computer data systems, the San Jose, California-based company said Tuesday in a statement. The tool also allows companies to buy new computing services and select whether to run them on their corporate servers or those operated by cloud-computing vendors such as Amazon.com Inc. and Microsoft Corp. The effort may generate more recurring revenue in the midst of HPE’s transition to a subscription-based business model.Demand is slowing in HPE’s central server market. With global economic and trade tensions, many companies have opted not to order new servers, networking gear and storage hardware for their data centers. HPE last month reported its fourth consecutive quarter of year-over-year sales declines.To meet a goal of delivering 1% to 3% revenue growth in the next three years, the company has sought to match the flexibility of cloud services with a subscription model, so by 2022 customers will be able to pay for equipment incrementally or based on usage. HPE rival Dell Technologies Inc. said last month that it would also make all of its products available with a subscription or based on consumption.Like many established hardware makers, HPE has embraced the hybrid-cloud trend, in which corporate clients keep some data on their own systems and some on server farms operated by the big cloud vendors. All of these services create a splintered information technology environment.“With this offering, every user in a company gains access to a unique console from which to run their organization and achieve powerful business outcomes,” Chief Executive Officer Antonio Neri said in a statement.To contact the reporter on this story: Nico Grant in San Francisco at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Jillian Ward at firstname.lastname@example.org, Andrew Pollack, Molly SchuetzFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

(Bloomberg) -- Want the lowdown on European markets? In your inbox before the open, every day. Sign up here.Silver Lake Management’s expensive foray into British soccer reflects the soaring value of live matches in the streaming era and the potential for new apps to cash in on the global following of teams like Manchester City.The U.S. private equity firm is buying just over 10% of City owner City Football Group Ltd. for around $500 million, the companies said Wednesday. At that price, City Football would be valued at $4.8 billion, based on simple math. But Silver Lake acquired preferred shares in the transaction, which would normally demand a premium, so the real valuation may be lower, according to people familiar with the matter.In any case, the deal puts City Football, controlled by Abu Dhabi’s royal family, among the highest-priced professional sports organizations. It lit a spark under shares of City’s crosstown rival, Manchester United Plc, which jumped as much as 14% in New York trading Wednesday. That’s the biggest intraday gain since the team’s 2012 listing, and gives the company a market capitalization of about $3 billion.Silver Lake is best known for tech investments such as Dell Technologies Inc. and China’s Alibaba Group Holding Ltd., and could bring that expertise to the English Premier League club. The firm is also well versed in sports through its stake in Madison Square Garden Co., the owner of New York’s Knicks and Rangers.While the big clubs still make most of their money from broadcast rights and merchandising, they’re looking for ways to use technology to sell privileged access to fans.Some have developed apps showing exclusive content such as player interviews, short documentaries, press conferences and even match highlights. A platform developed recently by London’s Chelsea Football Club found an enthusiastic audience.Manchester City demonstrated the potential value of behind-the-scenes content last year when it partnered with Amazon.com Inc.’s Prime Video streaming service for an eight-part documentary charting the path to its 2018 title win.“There are large international audiences and fan bases for Premier League clubs, particularly in Asia,” said Richard Broughton of Ampere Analysis. “There is potentially a large and arguably under-served opportunity outside the U.K. -- albeit at a lower price point.”The bigger teams will have to tread a careful path, offering enough to entice fans without upsetting the leagues that bring them TV revenue.Prized ContentIncome from sports broadcasts has been surging since media companies latched onto the live events as one of the remaining ways to bring in advertisers, which are increasingly moving online. The emergence of the big U.S. streaming platforms in rights contests has helped to buoy valuations for the most sought-after content.The Silver Lake deal values the business among some of the world’s top sports names including the New York Yankees baseball team, worth $4.6 billion, and basketball giants the New York Knicks, at $4 billion, according to Forbes estimates.While Manchester United’s market capitalization might be lower than the new Man City valuation, “any bid by a company wanting immediate exposure in Asia would generate a significant premium if the controlling Glazer family ever decided to sell,” said John Tinker, a media analyst at Gabelli & Co., referring to United’s owner.KPMG valued Manchester City at $2.8 billion in May, though that estimate didn’t include City Football’s other teams, such as New York City FC and Melbourne City FC.“Then you have to take into account any synergies the buyer might have with the asset,” said Andrea Sartori, global head of sports at KPMG. “And then there’s a strong branding factor, given the exposure associated with a football club.”Few TV shows can match the audience pulling power of a big live sporting clash. Manchester City was the world’s fifth-highest revenue-generating soccer club in the 2017-18 season, according to a study by Deloitte, following a strong run of success in domestic and European competitions.Comcast Corp.’s European pay-TV unit Sky has said recent Premier League audiences were 23% higher than last season.“We remain very optimistic for continued increases in global football broadcast rights,” said Manchester United Vice Chairman Ed Woodward in an earnings call with analysts last week.Private-equity investors have long been drawn to sports clubs and agencies. Last year, Apax Partners agreed to acquire data and technology company Genius Sports, fresh on the heels of a purchase by Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and private equity firm TCV of a minority stake in Sportradar AG, another sports data analysis firm. Providence Equity Partners sold its interest in Major League Soccer’s media and marketing arm back to the league in 2017, tripling its initial investment in Soccer United Marketing.Silver Lake is plowing more money into sports and entertainment, including an investment in Endeavor Group Holdings Inc., which runs sports leagues, hosts fashion events and represents top athletes and entertainers.City Football Group plans to use the deal funds to expand its business overseas and develop technology and infrastructure assets, according to a statement. No existing shareholders sold their stake, and Abu Dhabi United Group remains the majority shareholder.\--With assistance from Joe Easton.To contact the reporters on this story: David Hellier in London at email@example.com;Scott Soshnick in New York at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Rebecca Penty at email@example.com, ;Nick Turner at firstname.lastname@example.org, John J.

On a conference call with analysts and investors, Dell noted weakness in China, said memory prices are likely heading higher, and cautioned that (INTC) (INTC) processors were in short supply—a comment echoed by (HPQ) (HPQ) on its own call. A quick review of the facts: For its fiscal third quarter, ended Nov. 1, Dell posted revenue of $22.8 billion, up 2% year over year, but slightly below the Wall Street consensus forecast of $23.04 billion. On the call, CFO Thomas Sweet said Dell is trimming its forecast of revenue for fiscal 2020 to a range of $91.8 billion to $92.5 billion, down from $93 billion to $94.5 billion, and below the $93.5 billion Wall Street expected.
Dell Technologies (NYSE: DELL) posted its third quarter earnings on Tuesday after the bell. Expectations were strong considering that Dell has beaten EPS estimates 100% throughout the last year and even revenue estimates 75% of the time. Total revenue of $22.84 billion was close to Refinitiv estimates of $23.04 billion.
