Billionaire founder Larry Ellison, who created the first Oracle database in the 1970s and transformed the project into an industry juggernaut that rules over the enterprise technology landscape to this very day, stepped down as CEO after 35 years at the helm of his company. Ellison is handing over the top title to co-presidents Mark Hurd and Safra Catz, but that is not to say that he’s simply relinquishing control of the company he helped to build. The executive is replacing Jeff Henley as Oracle’s chairman, a central role in which he is expected to continue playing a key part in directing the software giant’s vision as it moves to counter the growing threat of new-generation data management vendors such as Cloudera.
