Oracle acquires predictive intelligence service DataFox
In 2018, to enhance its AI capabilities Oracle acquired DataFox, which supplies business intelligence that can be used to help businesses plan a variety of customer relationship management services. The startup has a database covering 2.8 million public and private businesses and expecting to add 1.2 million new ones a year. DataFox, whose customers included Goldman Sachs, and Bain & Company, adds AU-driven company-level data to the company's existing portfolio of business planning services and is expected to help Oracle compete with Salesforce.
