At OpenWorld 2015 Oracle Shows it is Red-y, Willing, and Able (Video)

You close off a street in the middle of San Francisco, park a large catamaran at one end, ship in multiple tens of thousands of your geekiest friends, add myriad keynotes and sessions that deliver both mind-numbing specificity and mind-enhancing generalities (sometimes simultaneously!), bring Elton John and a boatload of co-operating/competing vendors along for the ride, and finally you daub as much red on as many surfaces as you can find. There you have it – Oracle OpenWorld (OOW)!

ESG Recap of Oracle OpenWorld 2014

This year’s Oracle OpenWorld has reflected some interesting bets on the future of databases, cloud, big data, and analytics, along with many other macro-trends like social, mobile, and Internet of Things (IoT).

Oracle is doubling down on positioning itself as a cloud leader with emphasis on “pluggable” databases that can be easily hosted multi-tenant on-premises or migrated to a public cloud with a single command line. Database-as-a-service or DBaaS is clearly a priority and it’s being complemented by more cloud-oriented middleware and many new SaaS offerings.
