  /TI  Oracle Reveals Future of Government Sales -- The senior VP of 
    government sales speaks about security policies, wireless 
    applications, health-care opportunities and e-mail solutions.

    ABSTRACT: 
  /AB  (LEAD PARAGRAPH) Although the industry is well familiar with 
    Redwood Shores, Calif.-based Oracle as a commercial-side star 
    the world's largest enterprise software company, for starters 
    -its origins are actually rooted in federal government sales: 
    Oracle was founded a quarter century ago as a project for U.S. 
    intelligence agencies. Dubbed, appropriately enough, Project 
    Oracle, the venture resulted in the first commercial SQL relational 
    database-management system. 
     
    Today, Oracle is still a top player in government sales, and Kevin 
    Fitzgerald is the executive who oversees all of it. As the senior vice 
    president over Oracle's government sales-as well as the education and 
    health-care markets-Fitzgerald has 1,000 employees targeting the 
    public-sector market across the United States. Government sales worldwide 
    now represent up to 25 percent of the company's total revenue, which, for 
    the most recent fiscal year, was $9.7 billion. Oracle is the largest 
    software-only provider for federal customers, most recently recording $318 
    million in annual GSA sales. 
     
    TEXT: 
  /TX  Fitzgerald is chiefly responsible for all government contracts at Oracle, 
    covering everything from relatively small county commission purchases to 
    state-budget appropriations to sales agreements with virtually every 
    federal agency in existence. Those agencies include heavyweights such as 
    the departments of defense, health, energy and transportation. Among the 
    top government VARs teaming up with Oracle is its largest partner, Herndon, 
    Va.-based DLT, as well as Blue Bell, Pa.-based Unisys and Virginia Beach, 
    Va.-based Mythics. But, as Fitzgerald explains in a recent interview with 
    VARBusiness, Oracle is eager to provide plenty of exposure for the smaller 
    VARs seeking a growing presence in the government marketplace. 
     
    ( . . .) 
    In his conversation with VARBusiness, Fitzgerald explains how this era of 
    homeland defense and global reach has translated into a wealth of 
    partnership activity between Oracle and its VAR partners-activity that 
    continues to evolve rapidly every day.
