Oracle now claims to be the only cloud provider to offer a full range of enterprise software services, platform services and infrastructure services under the banner Oracle Cloud Platform. Compared to Oracle, cloud providers have chosen to focus on certain services: Salesforce.com has specialized in software and services Amazon has essentially focused its activity on infrastructure services.

The provider has also launched several integrated cloud services that must allow companies to move their operations to the cloud, including a service to develop and execute mobile applications directly from the Oracle cloud and an integration service which allows them to combine multiple enterprise applications into complete systems.

Oracle now offers online services for enterprise resource planning, managing the customer experience, management of human resources, management of business performance, and management services supply chain.

The Oracle Big Data Service Cloud and Big Data SQL Cloud Service is a secure and efficient platform to run various loads on Hadoop and NoSQL databases and to help companies collect and organize their big data.

Oracle Mobile Cloud Service offers a set of Android applications development tools or iOS operating entirely in the cloud. The developer can use Mobile Cloud to build a user interface or to configure an API for data exchange. All development will be done entirely through a browser, so it is not necessary to install software on the desktop machine to each developer.

Developers can use their favorite languages ​​or go through the Mobile Application Framework Oracle framework. The service also includes a software development kit (SDK) that allows developers to follow their application, for example to know who uses it and how it is used.

The company also launched a service called Oracle Integration Cloud Service, which allows companies to work together their different enterprise applications and cloud services. Finally, Oracle has updated Business Intelligence Cloud Service, in particular by equipping it with new data visualization tools.
