Introduction

Oracle is turning itself into a cloud-centric business. June 2015 was an important milestone in this process because as well as its latest annual results, it announced no fewer than 24 new services as the company continued to round out its public platform-as-a-service (PaaS) portfolio.

Highlights

  • Oracle’s public IaaS, PaaS, and software-as a service (SaaS) cloud business will continue to grow on the basis of its expanding and maturing portfolio, which the company needs to keep improving to maintain the momentum of its cloud transformation.
