Podcast: What the JEDI Cloud Contract Award Means for Oracle


When the Department of Defense (DoD) first issued an RFP for the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (“JEDI”) last November, Oracle almost immediately filed a lawsuit claiming that the RFP process violated federal procurement law. After being removed from consideration, Oracle continued to go to court and lost on the grounds that Oracle failed to meet the requirements. Oracle has since appealed that ruling, but on Friday, the DoD announced that it is awarding the $10B JEDI cloud contract to Microsoft over AWS. In this podcast, Oracle Practice Leader, Jeff Lazarto discusses what this means for Oracle and how Oracle’s persistence in the matter could impact its reputation.
