So every year before and during Oracle Open World we all complain about how data and database is brushed to the side.
This year it is the feature. It is the one thing the big sign on Moscone West screams. “The Autonomous Database”
Here is a picture from showing it. It is all about database.
Every year there is talk about how Oracle needs to return to data and databases. Now that they do, I think we should be very happy even if we suspect the actual feature isn’t what we would have requested.
Any day Oracle talks about database is a day they’re not spending on forgetting it.
