OpenWorld 2015: Finally a real Vision and Mission. A pleasant surprise by Robbrecht van Amerongen

clip_image001For me the 2015 Oracle OpenWorld was a pleasant surprise.  The surprise was not the announcement of an additional set of cloud products like the Identity Cloud or the Application Builder Cloud Service. The biggest surprise was the different tone of voice during the conference.

In the past you could summarize Oracle’s message as: We are Bigger and Better in technology, Open Source is bad,  Cloud is important, We (Oracle) Offer a full set of products and you do not have to look at other vendors. All your problems will be solved when you buy Oracle.

There is a change happening in Oracle, and the most important change is not the new products. Is a change in market approach, culture and structure.

Larry finally found his vision and mission

The change was visible in the Sunday and Tuesday keynote by Oracle’s CTO Larry Ellison. After a long time Oracle finally has a vision. And surprisingly it has nothing to do with technology. The vision steers Oracle in a completely different direction. Oracle needs to transform from a tech company to a services organization. It was definitely an inspiring keynote. The SAAS, PAAS, and IAAS business is taken very serious. I expected a full blown attack on Amazon and Salesforce,  but Larry is seeing them as inspiring example.  The CTO of Oracle seemed to have found his new horizon and he is eager to get there. He really looked like he enjoyed it again.

The full stack offering is not the only choice  anymore

OpenWorld 2015 – Middleware & PaaS perspective

 

clip_image002Oracle OpenWorld 2015 market an important point for Oracle as all the Oracle PaaS services are in production, more are announced and integration starts. Let us start from the beginning of the Platform as a Service (PaaS) journey for Oracle; at last years OpenWorld Oracle announced several PaaS services in advance of availability. Based on Java Cloud Service, which is available for more than a year, Oracle grow the portfolio within the last 12 months. With the majority in the PaaS service, which became wildly available, the European Partners are leading the adoption to the cloud.

Let’s take a look why, with more 50% of the global specialized partners are based in Europe, it is easy for them to join the journey. Oracle offers the same middleware software on-premises as on the cloud. This enables customers and partners to adopt easy and to secure investments. Over the last 12 months, our partners like Amis have proven successful cloud adoption by building proof of concepts, projects and showcasing our PaaS service. Customer can choose from a variety of cloud service offerings and fist applications at the Oracle Cloud Marketplace for example the Amis Cloud Activator Service. Oracle crossed successful the PaaS Cloud Chasm.

What is the next step in our joint cloud journey? During Oracle OpenWorld 2015 the keynotes focused on the integrated hybrid cloud. Integrated with Developer Cloud Service and also within each other. A great example is the HCL predictive maintenance showcase. The use case includes the complete flow from fault recognition, gather and diagnose information, repair and settle and schedule preventive maintenance. The whole show case was build on the Oracle PaaS Platform including IoT, Integration, Process and Mobile Cloud Service. In the upcoming months integration between cloud services will be much tighter including hybrid scenarios.

The unique Oracle value proposition are the same middleware products on-premises as in the cloud. In case you missed it Oracle release key now on-premises versions including SOA Suite, BPM Suite and WebLogic. Key features include multi tendency in WebLogic 12.2.1, JSON support in SOA Suite 12.2.1, Java Script in Service Bus or in memory SOA to name some of the highlights. This new version make hybrid solutions much easier from deploying the same Java application on a private WebLogic instance or a Java Cloud Service to shifting workload of a running application. Or to start a process in the cloud and continue the same process in a private cloud.

At the same time we see the raise of the citizen developer. Business users with technical background will be able to build dashboards in Data Virtualization Cloud Service or applications by drag and drop including integrations. This cloud adapters can be deployed anywhere on-premises, private cloud or a public cloud. Citizen developers will shift their daily work for Outlook and excel to cloud enabled applications. At the same time we will continue to see consulting companies like Amis to build enterprise applications, for the core competences of our joint customer base, with full blown functionality, big data & warehouses and enterprise wide integration platforms. In this hybrid cloud world security is key.
