Oracle recently organized an Oracle Cloud Day in Sri Lanka to help its customers get insight from the industry experts as to how Oracle Cloud will enable them transform their businesses by building a complete cloud strategy and harnessing applications on the cloud to capitalize on digital opportunities.
Regional speakers at the event talked about how the recent advancements in technology are attracting more and more organizations towards the cloud to derive value from their IT investments, leaving them to focus on business growth. Also discussed was the trusting they have in Oracle to help move their workloads onto the cloud.
Also highlighted was Oracle’s vast portfolio of cloud solutions and the recent addition of a range of new Oracle Cloud services to help companies transition to the cloud. The new services enhance the breadth and depth of Oracle’s extensive cloud portfolio across all layers of the stack –Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).
Major innovations across the Oracle Cloud Platform are designed to give organizations the confidence they need to run their most critical applications in the Cloud. At the heart of Oracle’s Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) is Oracle’s new Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) based on Oracle Database 12c Release 2. Oracle’s new database is being made available in the Cloud first, providing businesses of all sizes with access to the world’s fastest, most scalable and reliable database technology in a cost-effective and flexible Cloud environment.
Newly introduced Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offerings include bare metal cloud servers that are 11.5X faster and 20 percent cheaper than the fastest solution offered by the competition. The new additions to the Oracle Cloud Platform enable customers to get the best of both multi-tenant and single-tenant environments and include Oracle Bare Metal Cloud Services, Oracle Ravello Cloud Service, Oracle Container Cloud Service and enhancements to existing Oracle Cloud services.“Oracle is the fastest growing scaled cloud company in the world and the only one delivering cloud capabilities across all three layers of the cloud – IaaS, PaaS and SaaS,” said Chris Chelliah Group Vice President and Chief Architect, Core Technology and Cloud.
“With the recent additions, customers are taking advantage of the choice they get with Oracle and we have signed up and have already helped many new customers go-live with Oracle Cloud.”
Oracle has recently expanded its SaaS portfolio with new additions to the Cloud Applications suite, alongwith intelligent enhancements that span sales, marketing, finance, human resources, and other areas
Oracle’s strategy for next generation Software as a Service (SaaS) Cloud offerings blend third-party data with real-time analytics and behavioral inputs to create Cloud Applications that adapt and learn, resulting in intelligent Cloud applications that automatically offer individualized recommended actions and streamline the tasks of business users such as human resource or finance professionals.
“Whether it is data-driven insights, enabling collaboration between teams, or providing analysis to support the backbone of a new strategy, digital is the engine of innovation and business transformation,” said Adrian Johnston, Vice President of Application, Oracle APAC. “Our new Adaptive Intelligent Applications use Oracle’s web-scale data and applies advanced data science to learn and ingest data around an organization’s users and their behaviors. The result is targeted information delivered to customers and employees that provides the insights needed to build a knowledge base that helps to improve business results across organizations.”
Oracle has also announced a number of innovations in analytics that give organizations a unified and complete suite of cloud services to unlock value from their data. The industry’s only end-to-end solution for business analytics, Oracle Analytics Cloud includes a high performance analytic processing infrastructure at scale; a broad suite of tools for data preparation, discovery, visualization and collaboration; a pre-packaged suite of domain-specific machine learning models; packaged best-practice analytic key performance indicators (KPIs) to run your business; and large scale, curated public data sets all designed for analytics.
