Founded in 1991, Microsoft Research is dedicated to conducting both basic and applied research in computer science and software engineering. More than 1,100 brilliant scientists and engineers focus on more than 55 areas of computing and openly collaborate with leading academic, governmental, and industrial researchers to advance the state of the art of computing, help fuel the long-term growth of Microsoft and its products, and solve some of the world's toughest problems through technological innovation.

 Oracle Labs
The Mission of Oracle Labs is straightforward: Identify, explore, and transfer new technologies that have the potential to substantially improve Oracle's business. Oracle's commitment to R&D is a driving factor in the development of technologies that have kept Oracle at the forefront of the computer industry. Although many of Oracle's leading-edge technologies originate in its product development organizations, Oracle Labs is the sole organization at Oracle that is devoted exclusively to research. The acquisition of Sun Microsystems, along with dozens of other acquired companies, brought a wide array of technologies to Oracle's portfolio. Oracle executives recognized that in Sun Microsystems Laboratories, Sun brought the combined company the benefits of an independent research organization - now renamed Oracle Labs.
