Oracle Management Cloud @ Oracle OpenWorld 2018—Round Up

Now that Oracle OpenWorld is behind us, I wanted to take a few moments to share some of the Oracle Management Cloud highlights and news that happened during the conference.

This was one of our best Oracle OpenWorld's to date. We had a ton of Oracle Management Cloud sessions, demos, hands-on-labs and partner events with several customers telling their story of how they benefited from the solution. Not to mention that a few of them won Oracle Excellence Awards. So a big congratulations goes out to the winners:

  • Cox Automotive

  • SK Hynix

  • Anthem

  • Optima Gaming

During mid-week at Oracle OpenWorld, we had our Oracle Management Cloud product keynote, Modern Management and Security in Action, (watch the full keynote here) featuring Prakash Ramamurthy, Senior Vice President along with Dan Koloski, Vice President, from the Security and Systems Management team. In the keynote, Prakash talked about how organizations need to maintain control and operational integrity of fast-moving hybrid cloud environments.

He talked about the challenges customers are facing when it comes to managing applications. And why it's important that IT knows about everything that happens within their environment. So you can avoid any surprise outages that can negatively impact end-users or customers or even worse, revenue.

The session featured a customer panel of those who were using Oracle Management Cloud to gain visibility into their Cloud estates and as a result were able to transform their business. The customers featured included, Anthem, Cox Automotive, Kingold, Optima Gaming and LOLC.

Anthem, a US-based health benefits provider, uses Oracle Management Cloud to drill down from application tier to the database SQL tier in order to troubleshoot issues and tune applications faster. By doing this, Anthem is able to spend less time on manual effort and gain visibility into Oracle Exadata's performance. 


Cox Automotive, a global auto auctions and wholesale services group, which includes popular online sites such as Autotrader.com and Kelley Blue Book, uses Oracle Management Cloud’s machine learning to get predictive insights into its business as it moves to the public Cloud.

Kingold Group, a Chinese based multi-industry conglomerate, uses Oracle Management Cloud to help manage and monitor its hybrid cloud environment. As the company underwent a digital transformation, it was able to uncover over 500 previously unknown issues using Oracle Management Cloud’s machine learning and IT analytics capabilities.

Optima Gaming, an e-gaming provider, saw a 90% productivity savings from its support team. Using Oracle Management Cloud's machine learning, Optima Gaming can now predict potential issues in its applications, helping the business to dramatically reduce the number of escalations being done by the first-line support team.

Faced with a complicated IT environment, LOLC Group, a financial services firm, was dealing with multiple banking systems across it's business groups. The company found that monitoring such a diverse and heterogeneous IT estate was very complex. The organization turned to Oracle Management Cloud and was quickly able to improve software code quality by moving monitoring telemetry upstream for developers. As a result application page load times were dramatically reduced by 96%.

It certainly was a busy and exciting OpenWorld week for the Oracle Management Cloud team, we want to thank everyone who came out to support us and hope you learned a lot. We look forward to seeing you at the next Oracle OpenWorld in your region.
