Oracle Data Cloud: Powering connections to customers.

The Oracle Data Cloud enables companies to use data to inform and measure business decisions. We do it by providing Data as a Service, or DaaS, to help create connections to customers across channels and devices. The Oracle Data Cloud was created in 2014 through the acquisition of BlueKai and was expanded in 2015 through the acquisition of Datalogix and later the acquisitions of AddThis and Crosswise. These brands live on as products within the Oracle Data Cloud.

Join Oracle Data Cloud and be part of the team creating innovative and groundbreaking data-driven solutions for Marketing, Sales and Customer Intelligence.
