"Managing IT resources is part of this shift," he said. "The entire stack of cloud resources needs to be managed across all layers. Cloud management needs a full stack approach as well as allowing self service to users, scalability, metering and monitoring of usage giving the ability to do capacity planning."
"Management of the full stack as well as the full cloud life cycle is what is required," said Wang, adding that Oracle Fusion Middleware has solutions to provide for all four paradigm shifts as well as all main layers of cloud management.
"Oracle's philosophy is one of a hardware-software integrated approach, which allows us to deliver excellent step benefits," he said. "For example, Oracle Exalogix Elastic Cloud can deliver not just double but 10x more performance benefits than other competitor solutions because we own all the components, which allows us to realise faster and more efficient computing that leads to more cost benefits."
