“We are completely transforming the way all companies buy and use cloud by providing flexibility and choice.” —Oracle Executive Chairman of the Board and CTO Larry Ellison

“In a couple of weeks, we will announce the world’s first fully autonomous database cloud service. Based on machine learning, the latest version of Oracle Database is a totally automated ‘self-driving’ system that does not require human beings to manage or tune the database.” —Oracle Executive Chairman of the Board and CTO Larry Ellison

“The economics of cloud computing are so powerful, it’s easy to get caught up in the impact on operating margins. But businesses don’t win on efficiency alone. If you want to win, you have to be something more than cheap.” —Chuck Hollis, senior vice president for Oracle’s Converged Infrastructure group

“With Oracle Data Cloud, we’re tying together the high impact of TV with the great new things you can do with advertising in the digital era.” —Eric Roza, senior vice president and general manager of Oracle Data Cloud
