Data Centre Technician

Oracle (Daettwil, Schweiz) Vor 2 Tagen veröffentlicht

The next 5-10 years will see the software industry move away from on-premises software solutions towards software delivery via cloud-based services. Oracle number one strength is the size and strength of our software portfolio to which most of the business world is already addicted.

Our vision is to bring this to the Cloud from our app server and development tools to our dataset and people management software. We already have the core infrastructure that all of this is built on.

The future is about providing higher level services that companies can more quickly consume. Oracle poses an interesting concern for other hyperscale cloud providers, they are not worried about us catching them Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) side, they are worried more about Oracle ‘s enterprise customer base and the unique opportunity to convert those customers to cloud.

Oracle plans to manoeuvre the entire company’s tech focus to provide this.
