Thomas Kurian who spent more than two decades at Oracle as the president of product development, resigned from the company a month before he wrote an email to its employees stating that he is taking an “extended time off” in September.

A source familiar with this matter also said that “The replacement of Diane Greene, maybe the part of an internal and external outcry over a controversial Department of Defence contract which happens earlier this year.
