Editor's Note: The Cloud Is Winning
Once a year, Oracle customers take over downtown San Francisco for Oracle OpenWorld. This year something else happened as well: The cloud took over Oracle OpenWorld on an even bigger scale. As cloud dominated this year's agenda, here are three conclusions I took away:
The cloud is winning. The full shift may take more than a decade, but cloud's speed and cost advantages are becoming irresistible, even for the largest companies. GE CIO Jim Fowler, on stage with Oracle CEO Mark Hurd, said GE expects 70 percent of its workloads to be in the cloud by 2020. Read an analysis of the forces behind Hurd's own cloud predictions—such as 100 percent of application development in the cloud by 2025.
Security is the foundation. Oracle Executive Chairman and CTO Larry Ellison said cloud providers must push security down the stack, noting that database security and encryption are better than application security and encryption, and silicon security is better than software security. Ellison observed that the cloud needs "a next generation of security" because companies are losing too many cyber battles today. "If we're going to move all of this data to the cloud, we have to make sure it's secure, that that data cannot be stolen, that those services cannot be interrupted," he said.
Oracle is serious about cloud infrastructure. Oracle's early momentum has been in SaaS and PaaS, but Oracle President Thomas Kurian spelled out the ways Oracle also will compete in infrastructure as a service, including some low-price, commodity services. Oracle is leaving no cloud unturned in this historic shift to the cloud.
