Special Report: Your Autonomous Future
In line with its commitment to expand autonomous capabilities across its Oracle Cloud Platform, Oracle this month announced the availability of Oracle Autonomous Analytics Cloud, Oracle Autonomous Integration Cloud, and Oracle Autonomous Visual Builder Cloud. These new groundbreaking PaaS services build upon the capabilities of Oracle Autonomous Database, which ushered in a new class of IT offering when it was introduced earlier this year.

Autonomous capabilities are the future of not only Oracle’s technology, but of IT in general. Last month, Oracle CEO Mark Hurd predicted that more than 50% of enterprise data will be managed autonomously by 2020. “It’s rare to find a system that is faster, less expensive, and more secure, but autonomous technology promises to deliver all three,” said Hurd. “The benefits are too compelling to ignore.”

And IT isn’t the only sector being revolutionized by autonomous capabilities. Here, learn more about the benefits of autonomous technology and how it’s transforming companies in multiple industries, and find out how your company can get ahead of the curve.
