He also said that the company targets on delivering an integrated suite of Platform as a Service (PaaS) packages which will make it very easy for the enterprises to move their applications and data to the Oracle Cloud Platform.
Oracle Cloud Platform helps the customers to develop new applications, expanding the existing ones and easily move existing on-premises workloads to the cloud without application charges.
The new Mobile Cloud Service by Oracle deals with the issue of enterprise mobility, providing next generation mobile backend as a service which reduces the cost of mobile app development, while Integration Cloud Service simplifies integration between on-premise Oracle, cloud and third-party applications.
Oracle Cloud Platform is growing exponentially and is already powering some of the world renowned brands. Oracle Cloud Platform has more than 1,800 customers out of which 1,419 were added in the last quarter. Avaya, Calix and Australian Finance Group are a few of the many organizations using already existing Oracle Cloud Platform services, including the Java Cloud, Business Intelligence Cloud, Documents Cloud and the Database Backup Service.
