This is really worth watching if you have a chance and whether you know it or not if you are on the web, you are somewhere along the line using some Oracle product, Java being the most frequently accessed and used since their acquisition. Larry Ellison, CEO and Founder of Oracle talks about their new open standards cloud. Beware of false clouds, you have to love this one and throughout the video he talks about the “Roach Hotel of clouds” with Salesforce.com, where you can go in and you can’t come out.

This is really worth watching if you have a chance and whether you know it or not if you are on the web, you are somewhere along the line using some Oracle product, Java being the most frequently accessed and used since their acquisition. Larry Ellison, CEO and Founder of Oracle talks about their new open standards cloud. Beware of false clouds, you have to love this one and throughout the video he talks about the “Roach Hotel of clouds” with Salesforce.com, where you can go in and you can’t come out.

What this means is that the other folks use a proprietary software, which he calls a false cloud. In addition, he points out too that each cloud has it’s own data base, again unlike the folks at Salesforce who combine it all into one. With healthcare, this is a big deal with privacy and security issues for sure. You can also move the cloud functions back to local servers or move it back and forth to Amazon’s cloud. Larry states it took 6 years to re-write and “fuse” all their applications, a lot of work but now they all work together and then they added on the “Oracle Social Network” to work across all “Fusion” applications.

Larry Ellison is in great form and these are some major new offerings from both the cloud and application side of the business Business intelligence is a big function and integration platform with all Oracle apps. You have to laugh listening to him with talking about SAP R/3 comparing as well as Salesforce.com.
