1. Interview: Will AI replace DBAs too? Yes, If You Ask Oracle (Acceleration Economy)

Oracle is ranked as the world’s largest database management company. Under the leadership of Safra Catz Oracle is integrating AI into its products and services, driving the company’s transformation.

Oracle’s strategy has two main components.

  • Encouraging enterprise software customers to move from proprietary data centers to the cloud and building a cloud-computing business.
  • Integrating AI and machine learning (ML) across its extensive product line.

Here are some of Oracle’s advancements in AI:

  • Fusion Cloud ERP: ML tools automate numerous reporting and reconciliation tasks, reducing the time to close books from weeks to days.
  • Customer Experience (CX) Applications: Built with embedded AI, these applications automate and integrate marketing with sales to generate better leads.
  • Autonomous Cloud: By making Oracle Cloud autonomous, the company aims to replace the need for Database Administrators (DBAs) to eliminate human errors.
  • Enhanced Cloud Infrastructure: Improvements in cloud infrastructure focus on boosting performance and security.

These initiatives highlight Oracle’s commitment to helping its business customers operate more efficiently, intelligently, and effectively.
