In addition, the Bexar County Commissioners will consider Oracle’s application for an economic development grant.

The company specializes in developing and marketing computer hardware systems and enterprise software products - particularly its own brands of database management systems. Oracle is the second-largest software maker by revenue, after Microsoft.
