He’s giving up the chief executive title, and it will take two execs to replace him.

Oracle said today that its directors appointed him to the position of chief technology officer as well as executive chairman of the board. The company’s software and hardware engineering functions will continue to report to Ellison, who founded the business software behemoth in 1977.
