The path from today's custom-developed enterprise applications to container-native microservices and serverless functions is fast becoming a well-understood paradigm with rapidly emerging best practices, patterns, and approaches. In this session learn about Oracle's container-native application development and deployment strategy in which an automated container-centric development lifecycle for Docker is built into the product line alongside an end-to-end site-reliability engineering approach for ongoing cloud-scale operations. See demonstrations directly from product development showcasing where Oracle has focused its container-centric application development investments and where it is going forward.

In this session learn how to survive and thrive in the collision between the four paradigms of modern development: microservices, containers, continuous integration/continuous delivery, and the rise of the IaaS giants. These forces are all working to shape the way developer teams—and the businesses they create—move to be faster, more agile, and more competitive. As software eats the world, all companies become software companies, and developers become the new kingmakers. Attend this session and learn what you need to know.
Extend and Enrich Oracle SaaS Applications with Oracle Mobile and Chatbots [CON7123]
Tuesday, Oct 03, 12:45 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. | Moscone West - Room 3022
Srikant Subramaniam , Oracle
Vivek Ahuja, CTO , Sofbang LLC
Enterprise mobility is transforming businesses by providing new channels for end user interaction, leading to dramatic process improvements and faster decision-making. Mobile apps led the initial charge, but users are now rapidly migrating toward conversational interfaces via chatbots. As a result, increasingly large numbers of interactions are being driven via Facebook Messenger, Whats App, WeChat, Alexa, or Siri. But the challenges of integrating mashups of data from disparate sources and the need to abstract the resulting complexities still remain. Come to this session to learn how Oracle Mobile Cloud Enterprise can help you in the transition from “there’s an app for that” to “there’s a bot for that.”

By using modern container technologies, companies can leverage all the advantages of modern software development. This session covers the impact of modern software architectures based on a real-life scenario, which we implemented to establish faster delivery cycles and to start innovations.
