Oracle Roadmap to Enterprise Cloud Computing

As some of you might know I have been busy developing the new Capgemini Cloud Computing strategy and solutions the past half year for Oracle products. Due to this I have been talking to Oracle a lot and we both Capgemini and Oracle have been working together the past half year to get things in both a business as a technology way up and running. We are at the doorstep of launching this new platform so from time to time I am already allowed to slip some information to the outside world.

It is interesting to watch that the combination Capgemini and Oracle have a strong research and development partnership during the build of our new cloud platform. It is also nice to see that Oracle is running their own roadmap which includes quite some of the same viewpoints as we are having within the team inside Capgemini. This is not very surprising as we are developing this together with Oracle.

To me personally and to Capgemini it comes as a no-brainer that cloud computing is the future and the road we should take and which we are taking. However a lot of different opinions within do exist within the IT world on what cloud computing is, which way we should go and what the best way is to create a cloud computing platform. I am not diving into this discussion at this moment. Some very good mailing lists do exist on the future and the roadmap of cloud computing and if you are interested in discussing on the future of cloud computing I would invite you to join one of them.

Within this post I would like to share a presentation from Oracle which is given by Rex Wang who is vice president and is sharing the Oracle roadmap and vision on cloud computing. A very interesting presentation to watch if you are interested in the cloud computing topic. This presentation is on enterprise cloud computing so it is not touching public cloud computing. In my personal opinion we will see a lot of things happening in the field of private and enterprise cloud computing as companies do tend to prefer having data inside their own network and are getting more and more data to process and the need for more and more on-demand computing power.
