The Transition To The CloudIt is forecast that by 2025, 95% of IT spending will have shifted from on premises to the cloud. This is already having a seismic impact on the service offerings and competitive landscape of the Enterprise Resource Planning, IT infrastructure, and application industries. This is likely to continue into 2016, as more businesses transition existing on site infrastructures to the cloud. In the long term, traditional providers are at risk of becoming obsolete if they do not adapt to and become involved in the transition to the cloud.

Oracle has identified the importance of security to its users and made its focus to be a market leader in this area. “The biggest concern we have as an industry and for our consumers is security” – Larry Ellison This is something that Oracle are looking to address in their security as they move to the cloud.
- Security should be as close to the “bottom of the stack” as possible
- Security features of the system should always be enabled by default
- Oracle is moving its security features out of the software and into its silicon
