“Why doesn’t software manage itself?” That’s the question Oracle President Thomas Kurian’s team asked approximately seven years ago. In 2018 the answer is, “It does.”

Earlier this year, Oracle launched the world’s first autonomous data warehouse. Now three more self-driving services have come online: Oracle Autonomous Analytics Cloud, Oracle Autonomous Integration Cloud, and Oracle Autonomous Visual Builder Cloud. The self-driving, self-securing, and self-repairing abilities of these services fill a gaping need in a software world where the default is far from secure or dependable. Beyond that, these systems learn from interactions and crowd-sourced data to suggest insights and reveal hidden patterns. Software is strategic. These services free technologists to focus on creative work and leave more-routine work to the machines.
