Autonomous IT Now
How will autonomous technology services alter business strategies and change the nature of IT? Companies using Oracle’s Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud are providing some of the earliest answers. For example, for the first time ever, a businessperson who isn’t an expert in IT can order up a powerful, autonomous data warehouse and be ready to load huge amounts of data—accomplishing in minutes what might have taken a DBA days to set up.

“This gives database superpowers to business people who never had it before,” says Accenture Chief Technology and Innovation Officer Paul Daugherty. Read more about how Daugherty and fellow leaders in business and tech are using autonomous IT right now.
