Adaptive Intelligent Apps blends third-party data with real-time analytics and behavioral inputs to create Cloud Applications that adapt and learn. The applications will use data from Oracle's Data Cloud, social media and other sources to drive automated outcomes in a number of horizontal and vertical application segments. This is an exciting emerging venture for Oracle, leveraging latest technology in the mobile, big data and cloud application spaces.
