Introducing the OracleNext Podcast

By: Roland Smart


OracleNext is a new podcast featuring wide-ranging conversations about how companies are putting emerging technologies to work. From cloud to artificial intelligence and from blockchain to customer experience, the critical choices we make today determine where our business goes next.
