This IDC Perspective summarizes key takeaways from Oracle OpenWorld 2018 for technology buyers, including discussion around new product releases and future product road maps, contrasted with several maturing Oracle service lines.
"Oracle has invested heavily in recent years to optimize the security, speed, scalability, and cost of its integrated cloud stack (SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS). At the same time, Oracle has also taken steps to redefine itself with the Oracle Autonomous Database and AI-powered applications," said Eric Newmark, program vice president of IDC's SaaS, Enterprise Applications, and Industry Cloud research practices. "At OpenWorld 2018, Oracle further demonstrated its commitment to this strategy, with numerous product announcements and customer testimonials. Organizations looking to purchase cloud technology should consider these announcements coming out of OpenWorld when making decisions across their technology stack."
