Every day at Oracle we change the way the world does business by challenging the status quo through the delivery of innovative cloud, infrastructure and data platform services. The largest names in technology and global business rely heavily on Oracle's Paas, IaaS and SaaS Platforms. We continue to push the boundaries of technology and currently offer the most comprehensive end-to-end cloud stack on the market . We passionately believe that our cloud technology helps businesses stay agile, competitive, innovate faster and capitalize on new opportunities.

During the 2016 Oracle OpenWorld conference we unveiled our next generation of Software as a Service (SaaS) Cloud offerings called Adaptive Intelligent Apps (AIA). Adaptive Intelligent Apps are uniquely powered by enormous amounts of digital consumer and business data from Oracle's Data Cloud, sophisticated decision science/machine learning, and a scalable cloud infrastructure. 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.
