Oracle was founded in 1977 by Larry Ellison, Ed Oates and Bob Miner. At the time, it was known as Software Development Laboratories. Ellison noted that he was inspired by Edgar F. Codd who published a paper on relational database management systems (RDBMS) in 1970. He also tried to make his company’s products compatible with IBM’s System R but he failed because the system codes were kept a secret by IBM.
