However, Oracle saw growth in its license updates business and product support, as revenue grew 8.2% to $953m.

Company chief financial officer Jeff Henley said during an analyst's conference call that customers had "worked off" excess database and application purchases. He expects a "modest improvement" in IT spending and the general economy next year and a return to revenue growth by Oracle during the current quarter.

For the six months to November 30, net income dropped 17.2% to $877m on total revenue that fell 6.6% to $4.3 bn. Diluted earnings per share fell two cents to $0.16.
