Oracle just announced its fiscal 2021 Q2 results. Total quarterly revenues were up 2% year-over-year to $9.8 billion. Cloud services and license support revenues were up 4% to $7.1 billion. Cloud license and on-premise license revenues were down 3% to $1.1 billion. Fusion and NetSuite Cloud ERP Applications contributed to Oracle’s Q2 FY2021 Growth.

Oracle Fusion Middleware is the digital business platform for the enterprise and the cloud. It enables enterprises to create and run agile, intelligent business applications while maximizing IT efficiency through full utilization of modern hardware and software architectures.

Q2 GAAP operating income was up 13% to $3.6 billion and GAAP operating margin was 37%. Non-GAAP operating income was up 14% to $4.6 billion and non-GAAP operating margin was 47%. GAAP net income was up 6% to $2.4 billion, and non-GAAP net income was up 9% to $3.2 billion. GAAP earnings per share was up 16% to $0.80, while non-GAAP earnings per share was up 19% to $1.06.

Short-term deferred revenues were $8.1 billion. Operating cash flow was $14.0 billion during the trailing twelve months.

“Our highly profitable multi-billion dollar Fusion and NetSuite Cloud ERP applications businesses grew revenue 33% and 21% respectively in Q2,” said Oracle CEO, Safra Catz. “These two strategic cloud applications businesses are major contributors to Oracle’s increased operating earnings and consistent earnings per share growth. We expect this rapid market share and revenue growth trend to continue as both Gartner and IDC rank Oracle’s ERP suite number one in the cloud.”

“Oracle’s Gen2 Cloud Infrastructure is adding customers and growing revenue at a rate well in excess of 100% per year,” said Oracle Chairman and CTO, Larry Ellison. “Demand for our Gen2 Cloud Infrastructure is exceeding our plan and we are opening new data centers as fast as we can.  Oracle opened 13 additional regional datacenters in 2020 to bring our total to 29 regional data centers worldwide, more than AWS.”
