Oracle has long been one of the most sought-after companies globally for developing database software and technologies. More recently, its popularity on this front has extended to the cloud.
Now, as the California-headquartered company aims to make further inroads in the segment, it is looking closely at the Indian market to tap the country’s huge budget for implementing IT projects.
Earlier this year, Oracle released a number of India-first projects as part of efforts to deepen client relationships and also make a mark in the country’s growing startup market.
There has also been buzz that Oracle will launch its first data centre in India this year. This is unsurprising given that Oracle sees high demand in the banking, financial services & insurance (BFSI) segment along with the telecom and manufacturing sectors, where companies are jostling to ride the digital transformation wave.
In an interview with TechCircle, Ravi Pinto, director of product management at Oracle India, shed light on the company’s software development blueprint. He spoke about the technologies playing a crucial role in the process, how blockchain and IoT can work together, and the future of artificial intelligence, cloud and DevOps in creating the next generation of agile applications.
