Federal Court Rules that Oracle Is Entitled to a Permanent Injunction Against Rimini Street and Awards Attorneys' Fees in Copyright Suit

Press Release
Federal Court Rules that Oracle Is Entitled to a Permanent Injunction Against Rimini Street and Awards Attorneys' Fees in Copyright Suit

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Aug 14, 2018

Today, for the second time, a Federal Court in Nevada granted Oracle's motion for a permanent injunction against Rimini Street for years of infringement of Oracle’s copyrights. In an opinion notable for its strong language condemning Rimini Street’s actions, the Court made clear that since its inception, Rimini’s business “was built entirely on its infringement of Oracle’s copyrighted software.” The Court also highlighted Rimini's “conscious disregard” for Oracle's copyrights and Rimini's “significant litigation misconduct” in granting Oracle's motion for its attorneys' fees to be paid.

“As the Court's Order today makes clear, Rimini Street's business has been built entirely on unlawful conduct, and Rimini's executives have repeatedly lied to cover up their company's illegal acts. Rimini, which admits that it is the subject of an ongoing federal criminal investigation, has proven itself to be disreputable, and it seems very clear that it will not stop its unlawful conduct until a Court orders it to stop. Oracle is grateful that today the Federal Court in Nevada did just that,” said Dorian Daley, Oracle's Executive Vice President and General Counsel.

The Court noted that it was Rimini's brazen misconduct that enabled it to "rapidly build" its infringing business, while at the same time irreparably damaging Oracle because Rimini's very business model “eroded the bonds and trust that Oracle has with its customers.” It also stressed that for over five years of litigation, “literally up until trial”, Rimini Street denied the allegations of infringement. At trial, however, Rimini CEO Seth Ravin, who was also a defendant, changed his story and admitted for the first time that Rimini Street did in fact engage in all the infringing activities that Oracle had identified.

Finally, the Court declared that over $28M in attorneys’ fees should be awarded to Oracle because of Rimini Street’s significant litigation misconduct in this action. Rimini comments to the market that this award would have to be returned to Rimini have proven to be false and misleading, like so many of its actions and assurances to customers and others.

Tue, 2018-08-14 10:00
Press Release
Start-up Uses Oracle Cloud to Launch AI-Powered Hub for Social Networks Virtual Artifacts’ new Hibe hub connects diverse mobile apps, enabling consumers to stick with their social platform of choice

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Aug 14, 2018

Oracle today announced Virtual Artifacts has launched its mobile application network, Hibe, with Oracle Cloud. The company has developed Hibe as a new social network for mobile applications that lets consumers communicate with each other from their social platform of choice. To prepare for rapid growth, Virtual Artifacts invested in Oracle Cloud, including Oracle Autonomous Database, Oracle Cloud Platform, and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

Hibe helps different mobile applications to seamlessly communicate with each other without fear of data or privacy spillage. Built on an AI-driven proprietary privacy engine, users are able to easily connect, interact, and transact together, each from their own favorite communication tools. The new network removes the inconvenience of having to switch between applications by keeping communications synched and in one place.

"With 4.7 billion users on 6 million mobile apps, our ability to grow our database exponentially and globally was critical,” said Stéphane Lamoureux, COO, Virtual Artifacts. “We wanted a cloud provider that shares our values on privacy, is agile, and can work closely with us to build specific solutions. Oracle was the only vendor that could meet all of our requirements. With Oracle Autonomous Database, we no longer need to worry about manual, time-intensive tasks, such as database patching, upgrading, and tuning.”

With Oracle Autonomous Database, the industry’s first self-driving, self-securing, and self-repairing database, Virtual Artifacts can avoid the complexities of database configuration, tuning, and administration and instead focus on innovation. Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud provides an easy-to-set-up and use data store for Hibe data, enabling Virtual Artifacts to better understand customer behavior.

The Hibe platform uses a number of Oracle Cloud Platform and Infrastructure services to support its current operations and anticipated growth. Using Oracle Mobile Cloud’s AI-driven intelligent bot on Hibe, Virtual Artifacts will be able to answer developers’ questions and make it easy for app providers to access the platform. The integration of Oracle’s mobile applications and chatbot technology on Hibe will also enable customers to directly engage with consumers, making it possible to quickly understand key audiences and improve the mobile experience.

Additionally, Virtual Artifacts will work with Oracle to develop the Hibe Marketplace, including an advertising engine to match items with interested consumers connected to Hibe through their respective mobile applications. The Hibe platform will also host and distribute content. By using Oracle’s blockchain platform, Virtual Artifacts and other content contributors on the platform will be able to track usage, distribution, and copyright attribution to help ensure it is being used and credited properly.

“The launch of the Hibe platform showcases the capabilities of Oracle’s Autonomous Cloud,” said Christopher Chelliah, group vice president and chief architect, Oracle Asia Pacific. “We essentially become the back end globally, leaving Virtual Artifacts to concentrate on the Hibe platform. This means that as a native cloud startup, we are supporting Virtual Artifacts from zero-to-production, and beyond. The combination of the strength of Oracle Cloud and Virtual Artifacts’ innovative privacy engine has the potential to revolutionize the app-to-app ecosystem.”

Tracking Down the Big Bang: CERN and Oracle Extend Research and Development Partnership

Mon, 2018-08-13 12:31
Press Release
Tracking Down the Big Bang: CERN and Oracle Extend Research and Development Partnership CERN uses Oracle cloud technologies to support its research infrastructure, used to investigate the fundamental structure of our universe and phenomena such as dark matter and dark energy

Geneva—Aug 13, 2018

The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) is extending its partnership with Oracle for another three years. This partnership is through a research-and-development program set up by the laboratory, called CERN openlab; it provides a unique research framework in which scientists and leading IT companies can work together. One of the aims of the partnership with Oracle is to develop a high-performance cloud infrastructure capable of storing and analyzing vast quantities of controls data, such as that generated by the gigantic research infrastructures used at the laboratory to probe the origin of the universe. Oracle can also make use of insights gained from the program to provide its customers with extremely powerful and future-proof cloud technologies.

CERN openlab has provided a unique setting for cooperation between science and industry since 2001. In this program, CERN cooperates with leading IT companies on the joint development of high-performance technologies for basic research in physics. Oracle has been a partner in the program since 2003 and started another three-year project cycle in 2018. As one of the largest members, the cloud provider is involved in four current CERN openlab projects. In addition, every year 40 students from all over the world get an opportunity to work on current projects during a nine-week summer school program.

“CERN openlab is a win-win project for everyone involved,” said Eric Grancher, Leader of CERN’s Database Services Group. “It gives our collaborators a way to get valuable feedback by testing their solutions in one of the most complex and demanding technology environments. And we at CERN can assess the potential that new technologies have for future applications during the early phases of their development. In addition, CERN openlab provides a neutral scientific environment where businesses can engage in dialogue.”

“We are pleased to extend our partnership with Oracle for another three years,” said Eva Dafonte Perez, Deputy Leader of CERN’s Database Services Group. “In addition to our 15-year partnership through CERN openlab, we have been working with Oracle since 1982. We will continue to need high-performance and, above all, quickly scalable solutions in the future in order to store and analyze the growing amount of data recorded by our instrumentation. Oracle offers flexibility because its solutions are available both on-premises and in the cloud.”

Based in Geneva, Switzerland, CERN is dedicated to basic research in physics. CERN uses its Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s largest particle accelerator, to investigate fundamental structure of the universe. In the LHC, subatomic particles are accelerated and caused to collide, simulating the conditions just a fraction of a second after the Big Bang. The LHC experiments currently produce approximately 50 petabytes of data annually, a volume corresponding to roughly 2,000 years of HD video content.

However, our current understanding of physics only explains the visible matter that makes up about 5% of the Universe’s total energy. The LHC is therefore to be made even more powerful, generating even more particle collisions and boosting efforts to investigate phenomena such as dark matter and dark energy. CERN also needs to have correspondingly powerful IT infrastructure in place; the laboratory’s cooperation with Oracle plays a key role in ensuring this.

“CERN’s research goals are extremely exciting, with technologies developed at the laboratory having had significant impact on our every-day lives. For example, technologies developed at CERN have already helped improve the treatment of certain types of cancer. So we are very pleased to renew our partnership in CERN openlab and hope to work together to develop even more powerful technologies that will advance both science and industry,” said David Ebert, Director-Government, Education, Healthcare Industry Solutions EMEA, Oracle.

Larry Ellison Announces Availability of Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing

Tue, 2018-08-07 16:50
Press Release
Larry Ellison Announces Availability of Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing New self-driving cloud database uses groundbreaking machine learning and automation to deliver unprecedented cost savings, security, availability, and productivity

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Aug 7, 2018

Oracle Executive Chairman and CTO Larry Ellison today marked a major milestone in the company’s autonomous strategy with the availability of the latest Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud Service, Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing. Leveraging innovative machine learning and automation capabilities, Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing delivers unprecedented cost savings, security, availability, and productivity. Oracle’s new self-driving database cloud service is built to run the world’s most demanding finance, retail, manufacturing, and government applications, supporting a complex mix of high-performance transaction processing, reporting, batch, and analytic workloads. Oracle’s Autonomous Database portfolio provides organizations with the most complete and advanced set of database capabilities on the market today.

“Oracle is by far the best database in the world and it just got a lot better because now it’s autonomous,” said Ellison. “This delivers a much more reliable, much more secure system—a system that protects against data theft, a system that is up 99.995 percent of the time, and a system that makes organizations and their developers dramatically more productive.”

Traditionally, creating a database management system required experts to custom build and manually maintain a complex hardware and software stack. Oracle Autonomous Database revolutionizes data management by using machine learning to provide a self-driving, self-securing, and self-repairing database service with cloud economies of scale and elasticity. The service enables users to instantly create new autonomous databases and easily convert existing databases, dramatically reducing costs and time to market.

Complementing the existing Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse service, Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing can support a complex mix of high-performance transactions, reporting, batch, IoT, and machine learning in a single database, allowing for simpler application development and deployment, and enabling real-time analytics, personalization, and fraud detection on live transactional data. Users can:

  • Cut costs: Complete automation of database and infrastructure operations cuts administrative costs up to 80 percent. The efficiency of a self-optimizing database together with elastic pay-per-use cuts runtime costs up to 90 percent. 

  • Reduce risk: Automatic application of the latest security updates with no downtime eliminates cyber-attack vulnerabilities. Protection from all types of failures, including system failures, regional outages, and user errors delivers 99.995 percent availability, or less than 2.5 minutes of downtime a month, including maintenance. Database Vault prevents administrators from snooping on user data.

  • Accelerate innovation: Eliminating database maintenance allows database administrators to focus on getting more value from data. Developers become more agile by instantly creating and effortlessly using databases that require no manual tuning. Integrated machine learning algorithms enable the development of applications that perform real-time predictions, such as personalized shopping and fraud detection. The simplicity of upgrading existing databases to the autonomous cloud enables IT to transform to a modern, agile cloud model quickly and easily.

Oracle Autonomous Database builds on 40 years of experience supporting the majority of the world’s most demanding applications. It is easy for customers to adopt because it uses the same proven Oracle Database as on-premises, with the same functionality and interfaces. Oracle Autonomous Database supports the most mission-critical workloads because it is based on highly-sophisticated Oracle Database technologies that are unrivaled by any other product, including high-performance Exadata infrastructure, Real Application Clusters for transparent scale-out and fault tolerance, Active Data Guard disaster recovery, and Online Data Evolution.

“The toughest job a DBA has is that of tuning and maintaining a mission-critical transactional database,” said Carl Olofson, research vice president for IDC’s Data Management Software research. “In addition to examining statistics and applying tuning adjustments, the DBA must also apply patches, including security patches, on a very frequent basis, which is both an error-prone and operationally-disruptive activity. With Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing, Oracle has eliminated these problematic tasks, allowing the DBA to concentrate on the higher value activity of enabling more business-responsive applications, and helping the enterprise to ensure that data will not be compromised due to known vulnerabilities.”

Press Release
Drop Tank Fuels Customer Loyalty Programs with Oracle Autonomous Database Loyalty technology provider puts the brakes on mundane database maintenance while achieving better performance and scalability for its customer loyalty offerings

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Aug 7, 2018

Drop Tank, a leading loyalty technology and rewards company, is using Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse to fuel its loyalty solutions for gas station operators. Removing the time consuming process to provision, secure, monitor and tune its databases, Drop Tank is able to automate data management with high-availability, performance and security features, enabling IT staff to innovate in more business-critical areas that drive growth and create powerful partnerships with gas station operators.

Partnering with major fuel providers such as Marathon Petroleum, as well as gas station and convenience store brands, Drop Tank deploys loyalty systems that not only drop the price of fuel for members, but also help capture and unlock customer insights through a wide range of data services. As the demand to expand its business and add more sites to its loyalty network grew, Drop Tank needed a more efficient, secure way to capture, analyze, and manage data collection for more than 3,500 retail locations, all with different systems running their operations. With Oracle Cloud Infrastructure as its underlying platform and Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse to store data and provide analytics, Drop Tank gathers insights that help gas station operators and consumer packaged goods companies identify trends and make more intelligent decisions on future promotions and sales strategies. 

“As our loyalty programs began to evolve and reach more consumers, we needed a more efficient way to seamlessly manage and scale to enable more partners to leverage our network,” said Timothy Miller, vice president of technology, Drop Tank. “By choosing Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse, we can automatically set load marks and scale, making it easy to support new campaigns without having to worry about time consuming exercises like indexing, patching, and tuning.”

Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse enables Drop Tank to easily scale to address new business needs, such as the introduction of a new rewards campaign within just hours of notice. Drop Tank has been able to grow its business to support 30x more retail locations over the past four years and manage its business-critical workloads from any participating location. With Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse, Drop Tank expects to handle a 50x increase in sales transactions through the end of next year.

“Today’s market dynamics require companies to constantly look for innovative new ways to meet customer demands,” said Andrew Mendelsohn, executive vice president, Oracle Database. “By bringing the capabilities of the Oracle Autonomous Database to companies of all sizes, the complexities of configuration, administration, and tuning are eliminated and the result is a solution that is quick to deploy, low cost, high performance, and securely-featured.”

Using Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse’s self-driving, self-securing, and self-repairing capabilities, Drop Tank has greatly reduced the overall time needed from DBAs as compared to more cumbersome competitive database offerings. With the Oracle Cloud Platform fully integrated, Oracle SOA Cloud is used to rapidly provision and link directly to gas station host systems to capture fuel and consumer goods data, eliminating the need for developers to write additional software.

Oracle Autonomous Database provides the industry’s first self-driving, self-securing, and self-repairing database cloud service. It’s built on unique Oracle data management technologies, including Oracle Exadata Database Machine, Oracle Database 18c, Oracle Real Application Clusters, and Oracle Multitenant, plus algorithms using artificial intelligence to make it autonomous.

OceanX Data Platform Helps Power the Subscription Economy with Oracle Cloud

Press Release
OceanX Data Platform Helps Power the Subscription Economy with Oracle Cloud Replacing AWS with Oracle for OceanX Data Platform enhances performance that enables clients to gain real-time, actionable insights into the customer journey

Redwood Shores Calif—Aug 6, 2018

Helping brands build lifelong relationships with consumers, OceanX LLC, a subscription commerce platform provider, has adopted Oracle Cloud for its business intelligence and analytics segment of the OceanX subscription commerce solution. In order to enable its clients to gain real-time access into the customer journey, OceanX moved its business intelligence and analytics systems from AWS to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and Oracle Database Exadata Cloud Service. With Oracle Cloud, the company has increased performance and saved on costs, while helping ensure its clients have 24/7 access to subscription performance metrics and consumer data that allows them to react to customer needs faster.

From apparel to beauty, subscriptions are undergoing a renaissance. The industry has grown more than 100 percent each year in the past five years. A subscription-based business model revolves around cultivating long-term customer relationships with a focus on lifetime value. OceanX’s data systems, as part of the all-in-one subscription commerce platform, builds these relationships by collecting and connecting data across the entire customer journey, delivering actionable insights to its clients and allowing them to analyze data at any stage and assess each membership experience. With the many services available in the market, failure to provide these immediate insights and capabilities will have a negative impact to the client’s growth in both customer acquisition and retention.

“Consumer packaged goods organizations and large omni-channel retailers are dealing with skyrocketing consumer demand for subscription services,” said Vijay Manickam, vice president of Data and Analytics at OceanX. “We needed our data platform to scale and deliver high performance at a lower cost. The migration of the data platform from AWS to Oracle was one of the most successful migrations at OceanX, and coupled with a significant performance gain with substantial cost savings meant the entire program was a tremendous accomplishment. This ultimately enables us to deliver our clients a platform that allows them to make more informed decisions, faster.”

OceanX enables great brands and passionate entrepreneurs to easily sell physical goods directly to consumers while building long-term relationships with their customers. OceanX's Exadata Cloud Service deployment on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure allows OceanX to go one step further and reimagine the future client data experience. OceanX has deployed multi-terabytes of data in Exadata Cloud Service, and Exadata's built-in database-optimization has enabled OceanX to improve its data processing throughput by 3x compared to its previous non-Oracle cloud platform. OceanX now has a solid foundation that can support emerging critical needs such as DevOps, analytics and monitoring. In addition, OceanX looks forward to leveraging Oracle’s upcoming AI-driven Autonomous Database Management capabilities, which will enable OceanX to make architectural changes with significant savings in overhead, cost, and speed of production deployment.

“Today’s consumers move in real-time,” said Kash Iftikhar, vice president of product and strategy, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. “Any slowdown in data-intelligence becomes a missed opportunity to deliver the services customers are seeking. With Oracle Cloud, OceanX has the agility to easily access the data needed to help its own customers build lasting brand advocates.”

Oracle Retail Recognized as a Leader in Point of Service in Independent Research Report

Thu, 2018-08-02 07:00
Press Release
Oracle Retail Recognized as a Leader in Point of Service in Independent Research Report

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Aug 2, 2018

Oracle Retail has been recognized as a leader in point of sale solutions by Forrester Research. “The Forrester Wave™: Point Of Service, Q3 2018” report recognizes Oracle Retail for, “…demonstrated strength in mobile extensions, back office functionality, and the architecture to deliver resilient, responsive, modern, cloud and mobile POS deployments. Oracle clients offered a positive view of Oracle’s global footprint, stability and architecture… Oracle is a best fit for sophisticated international retailers.”

According to Forrester, “The POS market is growing because more digital business professionals see it as a way to address their top challenges. This is in large part because they increasingly trust POS providers to act as strategic partners that help them deliver compelling customer experience (CX) through the path to purchase, return, and repeat purchase.”

“Omnichannel retailers are challenged with creating differentiated customer experiences that convert sales, drive loyalty and personalize service,” said Jeff Warren, vice president, Oracle Retail. “Oracle is uniquely positioned to provide retailers with modern POS infrastructure that arms associates with the tools and insights they need to offer the innovative brand experiences that customers expect.”

Xstore Delivers Resilient, Responsive and Modern Cloud POS Innovation Optimized for Mobile

Oracle Retail Xstore Point-of-Service delivers robust functionality which enables retail associates to deliver on brand promise in store with inventory visibility, customer intelligence, and seamless transactions. Here are some new advances with Oracle Retail Xstore Point-of-Service:

  • Rapid Deployment. With Oracle’s pre-integrated omnichannel suite—which includes Oracle Retail Order Management, Oracle Retail Order Broker, Oracle Retail Customer Engagement, Oracle Commerce Cloud and Oracle Retail Xstore Point-of-Service—we’ve built in the integration, orchestrated the synchronization and engineered the hardware for the ultimate Omnichannel experience.  Retailers can focus on configuring the system to meet their business needs/rules, instead of the building of the entire back-end integration. The out-of-the-box sophisticated customer shopping journeys can be implemented in weeks or months.

  • Enabling Flexible Omnichannel Journeys. Associates are empowered to deliver an experience that matches customer expectations. Oracle Retail enables the consumer journeys required to deliver a superior experience. Associates are now able to add multiple order types in a single transaction and during fulfillment split line and split item to improve their ability to sell down to the last item.

  • Single View of Customer. Today’s shoppers share personal interests to the extent where offers should be specific to them. First-hand data, together within Oracle Retail Customer Insights Cloud Service and Oracle Retail Customer Engagement Cloud Service help retailers understand what customers want, and when they want it.

  • Personalization. Customer Entitlements are delivered as an out of the box component of this suite of solutions. And with the stronger integration between Oracle Marketing Cloud and Oracle Retail Customer Engagement Cloud Service, retailers can personalize offers.

  • Thin Deployment with Oracle MICROS Hardware. Oracle software and hardware are engineered to work better together. Oracle Retail Xstore Point of Service has been engineered for smaller footprints and portability with the Oracle MICROS hardware. The software is now optimized to support sleek and slim hardware the 610 Series 700 tablet and the Compact 310.

  • POS Integration that Streamlines Investigation.  A heightened degree of integration between Oracle Retail XBRi Cloud Service and Oracle Retail Xstore Point-of-Service further enhances the ability of XBRi’s embedded science to pinpoint new sources of risk and deliver purpose-build reports that streamline and support investigative activities while leveraging the best practices built into the Oracle Retail portfolio.

  • Modern Retailing. Oracle Retail Xstore Point-of-Service delivers associate mobility that allows them to engage with their customers on the sales floor where the purchasing decision is made. Blurring the line between the shopping and the purchasing experiences, Xstore’s IP enabled store delivers shared peripherals (printers, PIN pads, and even the cash drawer) significantly increasing capacity while reducing the overall deployment cost.  

  • Secure Payments. Oracle Retail Xstore Point-of-Service offers retailers a secure abstracted payment solution that enables the rapid uptake of emerging payment technologies while removing the burden of PCIDSS overheads.

Thu, 2018-08-02 07:00
Press Release
Consumer Research Reveals Majority of Restaurant and Hotel App Users Engage Once a Week Oracle Food and Beverage Report Highlights Global Consumer Trends In Hospitality App Usage

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Aug 2, 2018

A new report titled Get Appy: Do Consumers Use Restaurant & Hotel Branded Apps revealed that a majority of global consumers (57 percent) have used or are using mobile applications to engage with hospitality operators. The study of 15,000 consumers across Europe, Latin America, Asia-Pacific and North America revealed that of the 23 percent that have at least one restaurant or hotel branded app on their mobile device, 70 percent are using them at least once a week. Increased app engagement across global consumers creates new opportunities to personalize service, incentives and menu offerings and highlights the need for modern food and beverage technology to deliver more meaningful guest experiences.

“Consumers are willing to engage with brands through mobile applications if operators can deliver differentiated value,” said Chris Adams, vice president strategy, Oracle Food and Beverage. “Operators that lean into the mobile opportunity for the food and beverage industry will have a significant competitive advantage with greater insight into service preferences and emerging menu trends.”

  • Of the 23 percent of consumers who have download a restaurant or hotel app, two-thirds have more than three apps on their devices.

  • Asia Pacific leads with 82 percent of consumers using a hospitality app at least once a week compared to 54 percent of consumers in North America.

  • One in five global consumers has at least one app for a food delivery service and 23 percent have a booking app for hotels or restaurants on their device.

  • Almost a third (28 percent) of consumers have paid for food and drink from an app on their mobile device at least once with increased adoption among Asia-Pacific consumers (37 percent)

“Historically development of food and beverage applications has been cost and labor prohibitive for a majority of the marketplace,” said Chris Adams, vice president strategy, Oracle Food and Beverage. “With a modern, cloud-based POS system operators can extend their investment and take control of guest relationships while encouraging long-term loyalty with personalized incentives through an integrated mobile experience.”

Oracle Food and Beverage provides operators with API interfaces through Oracle Hospitality Simphony Cloud Service that allow restaurants to extend their POS with mobile integrations. From mobile apps that enable loyalty or ordering flexibility, to back office applications that facilitate smoother operational efficiencies the open nature of the Simphony Cloud platform supports business growth and innovation.

Oracle Recognized as a Leader in 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Mobile App Development Platforms

Thu, 2018-08-02 07:00
Press Release
Oracle Recognized as a Leader in 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Mobile App Development Platforms For second consecutive year, Oracle positioned as leader based on ability to execute and completeness of vision

Redwood Shores Calif—Aug 2, 2018

Oracle today announced that it has been named a Leader in Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant for Mobile App Development Platforms1.This is the second consecutive year Oracle Mobile Cloud has been recognized as a Leader and further underscores the strength of Oracle’s solution, which offers developers the latest emerging technologies to help build unified multi-channel applications.

As mobile user habits continue to evolve, enterprises are expanding efforts to reach audiences on a variety of platforms. According to Gartner, “55 percent of all organizations will have deployed (used in production) at least one additional app experience in addition to a mobile app by 2020”2. Additionally, the analyst firm predicts that “by 2021 at least one-third of enterprises will have deployed a multi-experience development platform to support mobile, web, conversational and augmented reality development”3. Using Oracle Mobile Cloud, businesses are able to create cohesive experiences across all platforms to engage key stakeholders on the most popular devices and platforms.

“Smartphone adoption continues to grow and mobile apps, while key to engaging customers, are beginning to give way to new technologies like conversational interfaces,” said Suhas Uliyar, vice president, product management, Oracle. “The addition of services like Oracle’s intelligent bots, which can readily build chatbots for customers, will be instrumental for digital transformation as businesses engage with audiences on new and emerging platforms.”

According to Gartner, “Leaders have a strong combination of Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision. In the MADP sector, this means that Leaders are not only good at cross-platform development, deployment and management across the full life cycle, but also demonstrate strong vision for multiexperience development support. A Leader must also have open architectures and support open standards, while showing a solid understanding of IT requirements, and scalable sales channels and partnerships. Leaders must provide platforms that are easy to purchase, program, deploy and upgrade, and which can connect to a range of systems of record and third-party cloud services.”

It offers no-code solutions and enables customers to deliver engaging, personalized digital experiences that will delight customers across multiple channels.

In addition to providing a platform to build engaging experiences across mobile, bots and web, users also get actionable insights via analytics that provide deep understanding of user adoption behavior and app performance across platforms, so businesses can personalize engagement and ensure that everything is running at peak performance. The platform also enables enterprises to connect all backend applications, a key factor to creating a holistic engagement strategy.

Going forward, we will manage all of our HR, supply chain and financial data on a single integrated platform.”

Oracle Named a Leader in Digital Experience Development Platforms by Leading Industry Analyst Firm

Thu, 2018-07-26 07:00
Press Release
Oracle Named a Leader in Digital Experience Development Platforms by Leading Industry Analyst Firm Oracle recognized among vendors that enable developers to build a portfolio of digital experiences

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Jul 26, 2018

Oracle today announced that Forrester Research has named Oracle a leader in its “The Forrester Wave™: Digital Experience Development Platforms, Q2 2018” report. This placement confirms the exceptional growth of Oracle Mobile Cloud and Oracle’s innovative no-code solution that leverages the latest emerging technologies to help developers create a unified multi-channel digital experience across platforms.

“We believe this recognition by Forrester is further validation of Oracle’s commitment to building a comprehensive suite that enables enterprises to create unique, personalized digital experiences across web, mobile and chatbots,” said Suhas Uliyar, vice president, product management, Oracle. “Users have a variety of choices in the way they engage content and enterprises can’t assume stakeholders interact on any one particular channel. Using Oracle Mobile Cloud, customers can build across multiple channels and derive insights on usage and adoption across these to personalize end user engagement.”

In the report, Forrester utilized 33 criteria to evaluate nine digital experience development platform vendors, grouping these evaluations into three main categories, including: current offering, strategy, and market presence.

The author of The Forrester Wave™, Michael Facemire wrote: “Oracle has seen great adoption of its Mobile Cloud Enterprise platform since building it from the ground up in 2014. Oracle has added to this cloud-first platform with front-end tooling around web, chat, and low-code options. A unified programming model has allowed Oracle to build solid tooling (Visual Builder Cloud Service) to expose these components to a larger audience without going down the proprietary path where other vendors have stumbled in the past.”

Working with Oracle, Mutua Madrid Open became the first ATP World Tour Masters 1000 and Premier WTA tournament to offer fans an AI-equipped chatbot, “MatchBot,” for event information, including results, services, parking and more. “We wanted to position the Mutua Madrid Open as the tournament of the 21st century,” said Gerard Tsobanian, president and CEO, Mutua Madrid Open. “Development of the MatchBot using Oracle Mobile Cloud positions us at the forefront of technology and innovation. With this new technology, we were able to provide visitors with an amazing experience—a pleasant, simpler, and faster way to get the information they wanted about the tournament.”

Delivering breakthrough high throughput read and write speeds, TimesTen Scaleout achieves an impressive 144 million SQL transactions/second and 1.2 billion SQL statements/second running the Telecom Provider Throughput Benchmark (TPTBM) on commodity hardware.

"We are proud to announce the release of TimesTen Scaleout, a new scaleout in-memory database for OLTP workloads," said Andrew Mendelsohn, executive vice president, Oracle Database.  “Since it is based on the mature and time-tested TimesTen In-Memory Database, TimesTen Scaleout has both extensive sophisticated functionality, as well as incredible performance. This scaleout architecture is designed for extreme performance OLTP workloads and further extends Oracle's in-memory database technology leadership."

Built on Oracle’s unmatched experience delivering industrial-strength database offerings, Oracle TimesTen Scaleout offers always-on operations and instant scalability. It includes a highly available architecture with multiple active copies of data that are automatically kept in sync. Queries and transactions can be initiated from, and executed on, any replica, ensuring database users always have access to data. With instant scalability, organizations can expand or shrink database instances and resources as business demands change.

“Our marketing service system was successfully deployed under the new TimesTen Scaleout architecture with almost no application code changes,” said Tang Tang, head of the construction and maintenance department at Chongqing Mobile (China Mobile). “The entire system has not only improved performance by more than three times, but also successfully supported a number of new high concurrency business modules. This fully demonstrates that Oracle TimesTen Scaleout is an excellent distributed relational in-memory database product for OLTP SQL-based applications.”

“Processing business transactions with large workloads with speed and agility is critical for making real-time business decisions, particularly those related to connected IoT devices, fraud detection and billing,” said Julian Dontcheff, Global Oracle Technology Lead for Accenture. “Having teamed with Oracle for more than two decades to deliver the latest technology innovations to our joint clients to help them accelerate digital transformation, we look forward to leveraging TimesTen Scaleout as an important component of our data architecture toolkits.”

Oracle TimesTen Scaleout supports parallel SQL execution, global secondary indexes, and full-featured multi-statement distributed transactions. It features Oracle Database compatible data types, languages, and APIs, including SQL and PLSQL, the Oracle Call Interface (OCI), JDBC, among others. The system also allows for multiple data distribution options to accommodate a wide variety of application requirements and provides centralized management capabilities that can be accessed via Oracle SQL Developer.

Oracle Retail Breaks Down Inventory Barriers with Cloud Service

Wed, 2018-07-25 07:00
Press Release
Oracle Retail Breaks Down Inventory Barriers with Cloud Service Inventory Cloud Service Enables Retailers to Connect Customers with Items, Sizes, and Colors, No Matter Where the Item Resides

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Jul 25, 2018

To empower retailers to more easily track, access and manage inventory in store Oracle Retail has introduced a new Store Inventory Operations Cloud Service. By providing the ability to view inventory by size, color and other key attributes, the Oracle Retail Cloud Service helps retailers improve customer satisfaction and fulfill demand regardless of channel.

“With Oracle Retail Store Inventory Operations Cloud Service, we are providing retailers with the ability to have real-time inventory visibility to enable core merchandising operations, ecommerce and order management” said Jeff Warren, vice president, Oracle Retail. “The integration points provide the level of inventory visibility and fulfillment transparency that makes a tremendous difference to the customer and to the business.”

For fashion retailers, customer satisfaction often comes down to simply being able to locate and deliver an item in the size and color that the customer wants. Traditionally, store associates endeavor to fulfill customer requests for an elusive size, or color, by looking online or calling fellow stores. This process can be time-consuming and ineffective, consuming resources across a business that already operates on narrow margins.

Oracle Retail Store Inventory Operations Cloud Service solves this problem and provides the retail community with:

  • “Store Up” Vs “Warehouse Down” Approach to Inventory Management: By providing the ability to have visibility into inventory at a detailed level within the store, combined with a view of warehouse inventory, the Oracle Retail Store Inventory Operations Cloud Service enables stores to influence inventory sell through by requesting it directly from the warehouse.

  • Item Visibility by Size, Color, and Location. The Oracle Retail Store Inventory Operations Cloud Service is designed to address fashion or hardline retailers’ unique need for item visibility, and caters to them by enabling identifying items at the color and size level as well as by the item’s exact location within stores across the store network.

  • Access to Item Inventory Positions Across All Locations, to Meet Fulfillment for All Channels. With visibility to where an item resides, comes the ability to drive increased customer satisfaction, complete customer transactions and fulfill orders quickly and efficiently. While retailers often are asked to find and ship an item to customers, the task can consume an inordinate amount of time and resources with a lack of connectivity and transparency. By streamlining inventory management at the store, the Oracle Retail solution helps retailers to improve customer service and drive increased profitability.

  • Mobile, Intuitive User Interface Reduces Training for Store Associates. Oracle Retail Store Inventory Operations Cloud Service is designed to drive increased efficiencies across the store inventory processes. The intuitive user interface can reduce training time, and increases productivity and return on employee investment at a faster rate than ever before.

  • Faster Rollout, Lower Total Cost of Ownership. Oracle Retail Store Inventory Operations Cloud Service provides retailers the ability to deploy the store inventory solution faster, while taking advantage of future investment through frequent service updates.  The Store Inventory Operations Cloud Service plays a key role in Oracle Retail’s overall commitment to ensure a timely, common view of inventory across the retail network—an imperative for successful omnichannel fulfillment.
