Oracle Acquires Micros Systems in $5B Deal

Oracle, the world’s leading supplier of information management software, is now close to acquiring Micros Systems for over $5 billion. Micros Systems sells point-of-sales hardware to restaurants, stores and hotels; it also sells customer-relationship management software, invetory-tracking software and analytics software. This acquisition would diversify Oracle’s product lineup as it would now include more hardware. It will also enable Oracle to pick up many of Micros’ customers in the food , retail and hospitality industries.

Last year a few of these customers included:

  • Cracker Barrel
  • Burger King
  • Arbys
  • Hard Rock Café
  • Hilton
