Oracle OpenWorld Sneak Preview: Oracle’s Newest PaaS Offerings for IT Operations Management – Oracle Management Cloud
By Scott Mcneil-Oracle on Oct 16, 2015
OpenWorld is always a very exciting time for Oracle and our customers, and every year we reveal some of our newest offerings. We sat down with Prakash Ramamurthy, Senior Vice President of Oracle Management Cloud, to discuss this year’s conference.
Q: Tell us about what’s happening this year at OpenWorld for Oracle Management Cloud?
PR: This year, we have a rare and fantastic opportunity to introduce an entirely new category of systems management cloud services for Oracle customers – the Oracle Management Cloud. Oracle Management Cloud is a suite of next-generation, integrated monitoring, management and analytics solutions delivered as a service on Oracle Cloud. It is designed for today’s heterogeneous environments across on-premises, Oracle Cloud and third-party cloud services.
Q: Why will Oracle Management Cloud be so valuable to customers?
PR: Customers today are struggling with the need to reduce time-to-market for new applications, even as those applications are getting more and more complex and distributed. Whereas a new offering five years ago might have been supported by a monolithic, on-premises infrastructure, today that offering may be composed of half a dozen cloud services from several different providers. Oracle Management Cloud was purpose-built to provide the new level of operational efficiency and visibility that these rapidly-changing environments require.
Q: What services will be available in the Oracle Management Cloud?
PR: We will be offering three services out of the gate focused on some of the highest pain points for customers today. Oracle Application Performance Monitoring Cloud Service provides development and operations teams with the information that they need to find and fix application issues fast, via deep visibility into your application performance from end user experience, through application server requests, and down to application logs. Oracle Log Analytics Cloud Service monitors, aggregates, indexes, and analyzes all log data from applications and infrastructure – enabling users to search, explore, and correlate this data to troubleshoot problems faster, derive operational insight and make better decisions. And finally, Oracle IT Analytics Cloud Service provides 360-degree insight into the performance, availability, and capacity of applications and IT investments, enabling line-of-business executives, analysts, and administrators to make critical decisions about their IT operations based on comprehensive system and data analysis.
Q: Where can customers go to learn about these new offerings?
PR: The single best
place to experience the power of these new offerings will be in the Oracle
Management Cloud Launch General Session, which is titled GEN9778 - Oracle
Management Cloud: Real-Time Monitoring, Log, & IT Operations Analytics
and takes place on Tuesday, October 27 at 11AM in Moscone South Room
