Amid mixed Q1 earnings posted on Wednesday, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison dropped an important tidbit about the agenda at OpenWorld starting in 4 days.
While last year’s edition of the annual conference drew Oracle’s cloud strategy into the spotlight, this year the hardware giant is honing in on in-memory databases. Specifically, we can expect to hear more about the new In-Memory Option for the Oracle database.
“Virtually every existing application that runs on top of the Oracle database will run dramatically faster by simply turning on the new In-Memory feature,” Ellison boasted in the first fiscal quarter earnings statement. “Our customers don’t have to make any changes to their applications whatsoever; they simply flip on the in-memory switch, and the Oracle database immediately starts scanning data at a rate of billions or tens of billions of rows per second.”
An obvious target here is SAP, among other players in the data management and applications markets.
Approximately 60,000 people from 145 countries are expected to drop in at Moscone Center in San Francisco over the course of the show with another two million attendees checking in online.
