7.30 AM, Norcini Café – San Francisco
Jurgen: “The Database is the key to Oracle’s power: massive databases and all other related components that are necessary to maintain the availability and integrity of the customer’s critical data.”
Anne Maurits: “Oracle is innovation – innovation where customers don’t have to worry about their own IT environment. Customers can implement Oracle systems in their organisations right away, so that they can spend more time innovating their own business.”
Jurgen: “And we can accomplish this much more rapidly than before: we are able to continuously deliver functionality to the customer at an increasingly fast pace to ensure smooth IT operations.”
“How are we able to continuously deliver functionality to the customer at an increasingly faster pace to ensure smooth IT operations.” – Jurgen
What is your favourite Oracle innovation and why?
Jurgen: “I really like the development of the 12c, the pluggable databases. It is really targeted at capability: what is the quickest and most flexible means to deliver functionality. The 12c provides a fabulous bridge to the near future: customers’ hybrid cloud environments. Not a single customer will be running on premise anymore 5 years from now. On the other hand: not a single customer will be running everything from the Public Cloud 5 years from now either. The pluggable database is a wonderful innovation that enables those hybrid combinations. But, that’s just one of the many great Oracle innovations…”
“Not a single customer will be running on premise anymore 5 years from now.” – Anne Maurits
Anne Maurits: “The total approach – Integration from disk to application. That is Oracle’s biggest strength – the vertical integration. It really helps. Customers no longer have to worry about all the technical IT layers involved in answering the question ‘how am I going to make it all work together’?”
