Customers can take all their in-house developed Oracle applications, all their Oracle ISV applications, and just run them on Oracle Cloud without incurring any application changes. This is particularly important, as customers can utilize all their existing applications, developer skills, and administrator skills, and get the same support for their Oracle Databases both on-premises and on Oracle Cloud.
