Oracle OpenWorld 2018: Top 5 Technology Highlights

Oracle OpenWorld 2018: Top 5 Technology Highlights

Team Elire packed their bags and set off for an exciting week of networking, knowledge sharing, and Oracle product updates at Oracle OpenWorld from October 22nd-25th. While in San Francisco, the Elire team was able to take advantage of all #OOW18 had to offer – including exciting keynotes, product roadmaps, product demonstrations, customer success stories, and networking with other Oracle Partners and User Group Partners!

With four days of action-packed activities and sessions, there were a LOT of exciting announcements for the future of Oracle’s Cloud and On-Premise solutions. If you missed out, don’t worry – below are the top five takeaways and announcements you need to know!

  1. Announcement – Oracle Gen2 Cloud – During Monday’s keynote, Larry Ellison announced the arrival of Oracle’s Generation 2 Cloud Platform. Previous Cloud Platforms relied on Shared computers for User Code and Cloud Control Code – meaning that the Cloud Provider can see your customer data and User Code can access Cloud Control Code, making the system vulnerable. Previous Cloud Technology was not meant to run “Mission Critical” business applications, and security was simply an afterthought. Oracle’s new Gen 2 Cloud is run on Separate Cloud Controlled Computers, meaning that Oracle cannot see Customer Data and no user can access Cloud Control Computer or Code. This updated platform has new Cloud Architecture with security built-in from Core to Edge, allows the easy move of Enterprise Workloads to Cloud, and has Oracle’s Autonomous technology to streamline and optimize day-to-day tasks, which enables superior price performance. Gen2 Cloud is an extensible Platform for SaaS applications as well, meaning you can run your open source programs and other applications on the Oracle Cloud with ease. For more information on Gen2 Cloud, watch Larry’s keynote here.
  2. Security, Security, Security with Gen2 Cloud Infrastructure Services – Another part of Larry’s first keynote included the introduction of Oracle Gen2 Cloud Infrastructure Security Services. This new security infrastructure includes key management services – creating customer control of network keys for all levels. Additionally, the Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) automatically and continuously monitors and remediates changes and threats. CASB utilizes AI technology and machine-learning to observe your network usage patterns and recognize anomalies to identify and kill security threats immediately with minimal downtime – specifically 99.9995% availability, even under attack. A press release on the announcement can be viewed here.
  3. Analytics Data Warehouse – As a part of the closing keynote, Larry Ellison announced the new Fusion Analytics Data Warehouse, enabling extended analytics for all fusion applications. The Data Warehouse is built on Oracle Analytics Cloud and Autonomous Data Warehouse with packaged KPIs, visualizations, and dashboards. The analytics can be produced in a matter of seconds without database design, tuning, ETL, modeling, etc. Just a few clicks and your fusion data is at your fingertips!
  4. Oracle Digital Assistant Voice UI – The closing keynote also announced the new Digital Assistant Voice User Interface, allowing you to interact with your Siri and Alexa devices for transactions throughout your Fusion applications. A video of the interaction can be viewed here. 
  5. Mark Hurd’s Predictions for 2025 – Similar to the last OpenWorld, Mark Hurd included his predictions for 2025. Predictions this year were comprised of the inclusion of AI technology in ALL Cloud Apps – predicting that these apps will have AI woven into all business apps and platform services, further distancing them from legacy apps. Mark predicted that AI will power 85% of customer interactions, which would improve service levels, engagements, and allow retailers to create personalized experiences on any channel. This would infer that hotels could run 24/7 without people constantly at the front desk and for all industries to connect with their customers in new, innovative ways. He also predicted that 60% of the IT jobs that will exist in 2025 have not been created yet – including Data Professionals, Robot Supervisors, Human to Machine UX Specialists, Smart City Technology Designers, and AI Assisted Healthcare Technicians.
