Special Report: Next-Generation Cloud

June 2018

In June, Oracle announced its next-generation Oracle Cloud Platform services featuring built-in autonomous capabilities, including Oracle Mobile Cloud Enterprise, Oracle Data Integration Platform Cloud, and Oracle API Platform Cloud Service. With embedded AI and machine learning, these services automate operational tasks to enable organizations to lower cost, reduce risk, accelerate innovation, and get predictive insights.

Last year, Oracle outlined its vision for an autonomous enterprise, unveiling the world’s first autonomous database. Since then, the company announced it would extend autonomous capabilities to its entire cloud platform portfolio.

Delivering on that promise, Oracle recently made available a number of autonomous platform services, including Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud, Oracle Analytics Cloud, Oracle Integration Cloud, and Oracle Visual Builder Cloud Service. With this month’s availability of another set of autonomous platform services, Oracle continues to build momentum.
