It looks like the rumors we were hearing over the weekend are true, Mark Hurd has joined Oracle as co-president. Hurd has also been named to the company’s board of directors.
"Mark did a brilliant job at HP and I expect he'll do even better at Oracle," said Oracle CEO Larry Ellison. "There is no executive in the IT world with more relevant experience than Mark. Oracle's future is engineering complete and integrated hardware and software systems for the enterprise. Mark pioneered the integration of hardware with software when Teradata was a part of NCR."
