At Oracle, we are making this a reality.  We are weaving autonomous capabilities into the fabric of our cloud to help customers safeguard their systems, drive innovation faster, and deliver the ultimate competitive advantage with smarter real-time decisions.”

Skills and talent are also at the core of Oracle’s reasoning for pushing autonomous technology, believing that more important tasks can be prioritised by staff who will be saved time by the cutting edge enhancements.
