Larry Ellison was inspired by the paper on relational database management systems (RDBMS) by Edgar F. Codd. Larry Ellison had read the article on ‘IBM System R database’ in the IBM Research Journal. Larry Ellison wished to make Oracle compatible with System R. But, he failed because IBM did not reveal their error codes.
The name of the Company was changed from SDL to ‘Relational Software Inc.’ (RSI) in 1979. This name was further modified to ‘Oracle Systems Corporation’ (1982) with Bob Miner as the senior programmer. On 12th March 1986, the Company made its first public offering.
