I was just in Budapest for the Oracle Partner Community Forum last week. They showed us a a preview of what Oracle has been up to with their Oracle Process Cloud Service and Oracle Integration Cloud Service since OpenWorld, and it’s looking good.
Right now, there doesn’t seem to be any reason to buy into Oracle’s cloud at the Platform-as-a-Service level. After all, their only semi-available services are a database in the cloud and a WebLogic application server in the cloud. At the usual Oracle price tag, you need to be willing to pay a lot above market rate for the privilege of running your application in Oracle’s cloud.
But once the new services announced at OpenWorld (Process Cloud Service, Integration Cloud Service and Document Cloud Service) become generally available, Oracle has a much more compelling story.
