  • The Pentagon plans to award the $10B winner-takes-all JEDI cloud contract in late August despite a pending court case from Oracle (NYSE:ORCL).
  • In April, the Pentagon confirmed the finalists were Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) and Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT). Google took itself out of the race last fall.
  • Oracle has complained the contract unfairly favored Amazon and that two JEDI team members had conflicts of interest due to prior AWS affiliations.
