OpenWorld 2014

A General Recap of the Oracle OpenWorld 2014

2014 Oracle OpenWorld

Oracle OpenWorld is a year event for Oracle’s customers and is geared towards information technology managers, decision-makers and C-suite executives.  The event has grown to become the biggest conference for Oracle.  And you could certainly learn a lot about where the company is going when you attend OpenWorld. This includes what to expect from Oracle in the next few months and further down the line.

More focus on the cloud

If the 2014 Oracle OpenWorld keynotes are any indication, we should expect that the company would be offering more products and software that are geared towards the cloud, or enhancing the features that they have related to the cloud.  Oracle Chairman Larry Ellison himself talked about the requirements of public and private cloud together with Renee J. James, Intel’s president.  In his keynote address, Mark Hurd, the company’s co-CEO, talked about the value of the cloud to the enterprise, while Oracle executive vice president for product development Thomas Kurian discussed the various cloud services that today’s businesses use.

Further, John Fowler, Oracle’s executive vice president of systems, talked about how Oracle Database, engineered systems and the cloud are powering today’s real time businesses.

The focus on the cloud is very justified.  In 2012, Oracle asked attendees of their Collaborate event regarding their opinions about the cloud.  Out of 6,000 respondents, not more than 50 people said that they were interested in the cloud.  However, only two years later, the interest has certainly picked up.  In fact, the question now is not whether the cloud is viable for today’s businesses or not, but when they should start considering moving to the cloud.  Oracle has shown that customers could easily use the company’s products and software to get onto the cloud.

Oracle also trained the spotlight on its partners, including Intel, Xerox, dunnhumby, GE, P&G, Walgreen’s, and Pearson.  Keynote speakers included Dr. Didiet Bonnet of Capgemini who shared portions of his latest book, and Infosys CEO Dr. Vishal Sikka talked about the future of IT and business.

Other topics discussed at the Oracle OpenWorld 2014 includes the following:

  • Big Data
  • Engineered Systems
  • Enterprise resource planning
  • Customer experience
  • Human capital management
  • MySQL
  • Supply chain management

We can expect that Oracle would be coming out with more products, software and features touching on these areas as well.

Tomorrow’s biggest and most competitive companies are those that are able to take advantage of the latest technologies.  These include mobile, cloud, social, big data, the Internet of Things, unified communications and a host of other technologies, including emerging ones.  As we can see in the 2014 Oracle OpenWorld, the software giant is very much ready to assist you in getting everything that you need in order to take advantages of these technologies.   If you are thinking of moving into the cloud, getting into big data, starting your own mobile campaigns, or tapping into the Internet of Things, then Oracle is there for you.
