Oracle president of Product Development Thomas Kurian demonstrated advances in autonomous cloud, extending autonomous capabilities across its entire cloud platform. The company said it expanded its Oracle Cloud Platform Autonomous Services beyond the Oracle Autonomous Database to make all Oracle Cloud Platform services self-driving, self-securing and self-repairing. Self-driving services use AI and machine learning to help organisations lower cost, reduce risk, accelerate innovation, and get predictive insights, Oracle said in a press release.

Oracle’s autonomous capabilities are integral to the entire Oracle Cloud Platform, including the world’s first autonomous database unveiled at Oracle OpenWorld. The Oracle Autonomous Database uses advanced AI and machine learning to eliminate human labour, human error and manual tuning delivering unprecedented availability, high performance and security at a much lower cost, the company said in a press release. Multiple autonomous database services, each tuned to a specific workload, will be available in 2018, including Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud Service for analytics, Oracle Autonomous Database OLTP for transactional and mixed workloads, and Oracle Autonomous NoSQL Database for fast, massive-scale reads and writes.

In addition to the Oracle Autonomous Database, Oracle Cloud Platform autonomous capabilities for application development, mobile and bots, integration, analytics, security and system management, are scheduled to be available in the first half of calendar year 2018.

Examples of additional autonomous capabilities being added to functional areas across the rest of the Oracle Cloud Platform include application development; mobile and bots; application and data integration; analytics; as well as security and management.

Oracle also demonstrated a single Oracle Digital Assistant for users to interact across Oracle’s SaaS and PaaS services including analytics.
