Is oracle making an offer you cannot refuse?

Published by Richard Parry on 12th Feb 2013

On the first day of OpenWorld, Oracle unveiled a slew of products designed to position the company as the preeminent cloud vendor: a high-end server; an upgraded flagship database, version 12c, which will be released early next year; and a range of new or upgraded applications for the cloud.

Although Oracle highlighted a number of apps during the first day, including Oracle Fusion, RightNow and Taleo, it reportedly ran out of time and was unable to present all of its new wares. Given Oracle's hyper-focus on everything cloud, there was a lot of attention paid to the latest iteration of Fusion, which combines Oracle's many acquisitions over the past year and has been structured to run both on-premises and on the cloud.

Oracle also said it plans to continue to build out its private cloud infrastructure, as well as add Infrastructure as a Service to the Oracle Public Cloud.

It short, it has unveiled a complete cloud-oriented line of products -- from the hardware to the database to the application layer.

The Exadata server, X3, can be coupled with the Oracle database, Java development tools, and other Oracle software to be delivered in complete Software as a Service offering, as described by President Mark Hurd.
