IT giant Oracle has launched two new Cloud platforms “Oracle SCM Cloud” and “eCommerce in the CX Cloud”. The announcement was made by the firm’s Executive Chairman and Chief Technology Officer Larry Ellison at the Oracle’s OpenWorld 2015 Conference taking place in San Francisco. He emphasised on maintaining security as private data is at the risk of being stolen via cyber attacks.
While Oracle SCM Cloud will offer the first complete supply chain and discrete manufacturing with 100 per cent fusion, the eCommerce in the CX Cloud platform will be a complete, integrated modern suite covering the customers’ requirements across the spectrum like marketing, sales, service and social responsibility.
Ellison said, “Oracle has committed to make its Cloud and data platforms easy, performing, compelling and secure. We will lower the costs and accelerate your power. We are building solutions that will take off your workload and give you a better performance.”
Apart from it, Ellison announced a new mobile, consumer-like Cloud UI- a state-of-the-art mobile user interface. “It is a modern tablet and smartphone-friendly Java-based platform which will become the best choice among all other mobile platforms available today,” Ellison informed.
He also announced an integrated “Just-in-Time Learning System” that will be embeded in all Oracle SaaS applications for the benefit of the consumers. “We started building all our application on the Cloud and for this, we had to rewrite our entire database. We had SaaS then. Once we had this, we found that now, we need PaaS (Platform At-A-Service),” he said.
PaaS is a category of Cloud computing services that provides a platform allowing customers to develop, run and manage web applications without any complexity of building and maintaining the infrastructure.
Ellison further announced the “Exadata Cloud Service” that will facilitate identical software and hardware on-premise.
The five-day event (Oct 25-29) taking place across 18 locations is going to see some of the greatest minds brainstorming on the future of the enterprise, Oracle’s integrated Cloud platform and the new era of secure computing.
Over 45 Oracle products and services will be unveiled throughout the conference during multiple sessions and events, also offering opportunities to customers, partners and peers for networking.
