During a call with press and analysts on Monday, Thomas Kurian, executive VP of Product Development at Oracle, highlighted his company’s ongoing cloud application efforts. Kurian noted that since the summer of 2012, Oracle has updated its cloud offerings in a number of different ways.
In the public cloud, Oracle now has new releases of all of its software-as-a-service offerings including ERP, sales and marketing, human resources, talent management and customer service solutions.
“Each of these includes fundamental new capabilities and advances and also are integrated together, so people can use more of these pieces together, if they choose to,” Kurian said.
Kurian added that Oracle has delivered on its platform-as-a-service offerings for database and Java. Those two offerings have also recently been integrated with Oracle Fusion applications, Taleo and RightNow solutions.
“We have customers using those right now to extend the functionality of our SaaS applications by using our platform-as-a-service products in combination,” Kurian said.
