Oracle is increasingly embracing the cloud as a way to move their business forward and provide more economical solutions for their customers. At Oracle OpenWorld last week they announced new offerings in areas their cloud customers seek: more flexibility regarding how they deploy their applications, which applications they use, and even how to pay for that flexibility.
The first big announcement last week came with the Oracle In Memory processing option delilvered by Ellison at the kick off speech. Later Oracle announced they added 10 new enterprise products and services to the Oracle Cloud. The newest additions include Compute Cloud; Object Storage Cloud; Database Cloud; Java Cloud; Business Intelligence Cloud; Documents Cloud; Mobile Cloud; Database Backup Cloud; Billing and Revenue Management Cloud; and Cloud Marketplace.
Oracle Cloud previously offered a range of integrated services running in what the company describes as a secure, enterprise, standards-based cloud platform Relevant Products/Services. With the new SaaS options Oracle now offers one of the most extensive collections of cloud-based enterprise applications.
The 10 new cloud services are all available on a subscription basis. Some of the key new offerings include human capital management, customer experience (CX) management, and enterprise resource management (ERP), with built-in business intelligence (BI), social and mobile Relevant Products/Services capabilities.
Oracle is promoting product flexibility as a top selling point. Oracle offers choices as to how to deploy Relevant Products/Services Oracle software: in traditional on-premise data Relevant Products/Services centers, or though private clouds, Oracle Cloud, or other public clouds.
While Oracle may have been late to the Cloud Computing game, they now offer a fully integrated set of services at very competitive pricing.
