The Internet-of-things (IoT) has captured the headlines in 2014 and continues to capture the imagination of CxOs across Europe. At a macro level, IoT consists of data capture, data transport, data analysis, and decision making/business process change. By its very nature, it involves a plethora of players.
As with any "next big thing," very many vendors with diverse origins are vying for position within the IoT ecosystem. Vendors from the security, software, consulting, hardware, telecoms, and other markets are all seeking to build a strong market position. With this announcement, Oracle is throwing its hat into the ring, and its aim is nothing less than to make itself the Big Data and analytics platform of choice for IoT.
