Oracle on Wednesday debuted the latest generation of its autonomous platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offerings covering the areas of mobile, data integration and API. Earlier this year, Oracle announced availability of a number of platform services with built in automation, including Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud, Oracle Autonomous Analytics Cloud, Oracle Autonomous Integration Cloud, and Oracle Autonomous Visual Builder. The aim is to use machine learning to make app and data integration, analytics and system and identity management autonomous, enabling organizations to lower cost, reduce risk, accelerate innovation, and get predictive insights. Applied to its database, Oracle said automating tasks would be more secure and allow admins to move to higher level functions.
