Bengaluru, India —August 10, 2017
Oracle sees a very vibrant and active software development scenario in India, with developers working on all spectrums of technology. In particular, Oracle finds there’s more developer appetite for cutting edge technologies such as Containers, Chatbots etc. for building innovative applications.
The speed-to-market business imperative has redefined application development practices, with the number of application releases from typical businesses likely to double over the coming year. Developers are looking to quickly create applications with microservices, APIs, containers, mobile backends and chatbots using modern DevOps processes and thus, are realizing the need for rich and robust platform capabilities.
The following three trends are most visible with developers in India:
Above all this, the premium on open standards, open platform and open source remains a key priority, since developers want zero lock-in. In line with Oracle’s commitment to Open Standards and Open Source, Oracle recently announced three new Open Source Container Utilities – Smith, a secure microcontainer builder; Crashcart, a microcontainer debugging tool and Railcar, an alternative container runtime.
Oracle is also bringing its global flagship developer conference, Oracle Code, to Bengaluru for the first time. This is an opportunity for developers to experience easy, modern and open cloud development technology with workshops and other live, interactive experiences and demos.
“With the democratization of coding, Oracle is committed towards developing, supporting, and promoting various technologies for developers. India is a critical market for us and Oracle Cloud Platform validated for India Stack is a testimony to our commitment. We’ll continue to engage with and empower the vibrant developer community here to build world-class products” said Ravi Pinto, Director – Product Management, Oracle Cloud Platform and Cloud machine.
