Key take-aways from the Oracle PaaS Cloud announcements – Integrate, Accelerate, Lead

imageMonday June 22nd was the launch date for Oracle for 24 (and more) Cloud Services. June is traditionally an important month for Oracle when it comes to product launches and important announcements. This year is the same in that respect. The announcements came in a many-hour live webcast including a 45 minute presentation by Oracle CTO Larry Ellison (see videos from Oracle Cloud Platform Launch). I have harvested some of the most relevant slides from this presentation – that capture the essence from his announcements (or at least the things that stood out to me).

See some other relevant resources regarding these announcements:

  1. In all a lot off fluffy Cloud air when offerings (already announced @OOW14) still don’t show more than a “Coming Soon”-button. Thanks for the overview.
