Cloud is driving IT transformation and Oracle innovation by: Eric Bezille


Today was again a very fully packed day at Oracle Open World. Starting with Mark Hurd, providing the vision of Oracle CEO on the global market and how Enterprises are forced to re-invent themselves or to face disintermediation, due to new comers leveraging the technologies to their benefits: doing the same thing but differently. Enterprise have to simplify and stop spending 80% of their IT budget to keep the light on. That’s where the Cloud model kicks in.

As Oracle we could not keep up if we were running Oracle Cloud like a traditional IT does, with multiple heterogeneous layers and vendors to integrate, patch and upgrade. The fact that we own all the stack from disk, to servers, to operating systems and even higher up with the Database and application stacks make a huge difference. We have one thing to manage, like Exadata to run the Oracle Database. That’s why Cloud is driving IT transformation and our innovation. (full video replay here).

This was clearly illustrated during Oracle Systems General Session, re-emphasis on the tight integration benefit of hardware and software, leading to unique optimizations, including one key aspect that was already touch on by Larry Ellision opening Keynote: Security (check here and here)… A new topics that is now also on CEO agenda.

And this tight integration is leading us to unique innovation capabilities helping us to scale, and you as well, as our technology is available in 3 deployments models. Again this was also demonstrated today with the launch of Exadata X7, applying in-memory technology in storage not to accelerate analytic but OLTP workloads: something pretty counter intuitive for pure hardware vendors of storage, but possible as soon as you combine hardware and software up to the Database layer. That makes a huge difference. Read the complete article here.
