Medic chuckled as he recounted the moment. Three hours earlier, at least four gunmen and a suicide bomber had stormed 14 Riverside Drive, a leafy office, restaurant and hotel complex in the heart of Kenya's capital, kicking off a 20-hour siege in which 21 people were killed. At 3.39 p.m. (1339 GMT), Medic, the 56-year-old Swiss founder of a private security firm, was on his way home from work in a taxi when he saw injured people being carried along the side of the road.

Kenyan security forces have killed all the Somali militants who stormed an upscale Nairobi hotel compound, taking at least 21 lives and forcing hundreds of people into terrifying escapes, the government said on Wednesday. Fifty people believed to have been in the complex remained unaccounted for on Wednesday afternoon, the Kenya Red Cross said, raising the possibility of a much higher final death toll. The bloody bodies of five attackers were broadcast across social media as President Uhuru Kenyatta announced the end of a 20-hour overnight siege that echoed a 2013 assault that killed 67 people in the Westgate shopping centre in the same district.
Gunmen blasted their way into a hotel and office complex in the Kenyan capital on Tuesday, killing at least 15 people and sending workers diving under desks to escape an attack claimed by Somalia-based Islamist group al Shabaab. Nearly 11 hours after the assault began at Nairobi's upscale 14 Riverside Drive complex, bursts of gunfire and an explosion were heard in the area, suggesting the situation was not yet under control despite government assurances. A U.S. State Department official confirmed one of the victims was American.

In the previous article, we discussed how Oracle’s (ORCL) revenue growth slowed in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 and improved just ~0.5% in the first quarter of fiscal 2019. According to the outlook provided by Oracle, it expects its revenue to grow between 0% and 2% in constant currency terms in the quarter, but the strengthening US dollar could hurt its revenue growth expectations. In August, the Turkish lira went through a bad phase that spread to other emerging markets.
Last year, Oracle (ORCL) and AT&T (T) entered into an agreement through which Oracle will migrate thousands of existing Oracle databases on AT&T’s network to Oracle cloud. The exercise was supposed to be a massive one for Oracle, as it involved migrating petabytes worth of AT&T data, making it one of the biggest ever business deals for Oracle. Oracle mentioned that it would finish this migration within the year.
In the previous article, we discussed how Oracle’s (ORCL) Autonomous Database is an attempt by Oracle to penetrate the IaaS (infrastructure-as-a-service) market, a category of cloud computing. Despite Oracle’s small presence in the IaaS market, it’s known to be a leader in the traditional on-premises database market. According to a report from TechRepublic citing Gartner as its source, the open-source database market is worth $2.6 billion compared to $34 billion for the traditional database market.
The real driver of growth for Oracle in the SaaS market is its growing presence in the ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) space. ERP includes functions such as procurement, project management, financial management, and accounting. According to Gartner, ERP was a $31 billion market in 2017 and is poised to grow to $34 billion by the end of this year—decent growth despite worldwide economic concerns such as currency volatility, trade wars, and Brexit. The report mentions that SAP (SAP) continues to be the largest player in the ERP market with revenue of over $7 billion in 2017.
SaaS (software-as-a-service) is the concept of the licensing of software applications by a third party on a subscription basis. Alongside SaaS, IaaS (infrastructure-as-a-service) and PaaS (platform-as-a-service) are the other two major categories of cloud computing. According to a report from IDC, SaaS continues to be the biggest category in the cloud services market, clocking $90 billion in revenue in 2017.
Another growth market for IBM is blockchains, a decentralized and mutually-verifiable peer-to-peer technology. The blockchain market is poised to grow rapidly—according to Wintergreen Research and as the chart below shows, the market could grow 89% (compounded annually) from $708 million in 2017 to $60.7 billion in 2024.
The company’s cloud subscription revenue soared 41% YoY (year-over-year) in the third quarter, with its management saying that its cloud subscription business was eclipsing its traditional software license business faster than expected. Its software subscription business was 40% larger than its software license business at the end of the third quarter. As part of its efforts to encourage its customers to transition to its cloud services, where it sees a brighter future, SAP is cooperating with leading cloud companies Amazon (AMZN), Microsoft (MSFT), IBM Corporation (IBM), Google (GOOGL), and Alibaba (BABA).
WALLDORF, Germany, Dec. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- More than half (54 percent) of American consumers consider themselves to be socially conscious shoppers, and nearly two-thirds (63 percent) of respondents prefer to purchase holiday gifts from brands that support specific social causes. The study also revealed that 60 percent of individuals will avoid buying from brands that support causes they disagree with during holiday shopping.

Microsoft (MSFT) has secured the renewal of its software supply contract with Israel’s government, according to Reuters. This contract renewal is notable because in August, Israel threatened to terminate its software contracts with Microsoft after the company proposed shifting it to a different licensing model. Specifically, Microsoft had wanted to move Israel to a software subscription model from a perpetual software license model (in which the customer is free to use the software as desired).
It seems Oracle (ORCL) is about to lose a key customer, Amazon (AMZN). For a while, Amazon has been rumored to be working on its exit from Oracle’s databases, and it’s recently become clear that Amazon is dropping Oracle as its database provider. Amazon’s top cloud executive, Andy Jassy, told CNBC recently that Amazon is on track to move off of all Oracle databases by the end of 2019.
