    Might be a good idea to ask some their competitors. Sometimes it is simply the people who were interested in doing all the work to enter the contest. Maybe Oracle did all the work. I wonder if could find out if there any comparitors.
    Makes one just a little skeptical that they made a clean sweep.

    Thats a good question. The verbage from Oracle gets excited about showing the validation in the platform for this purpose.
    I will dig into this a bit more.

    What does that mean though in relation to the other players in the market? I guess what I’m asking is, why did Oracle make such a huge sweep?
