SAN FRANCISCO -- Oracle's Autonomous Database Cloud, which runs without human intervention, was a highlight of this week's OpenWorld conference.

Another highlight: Larry Ellison slinging insults at the competition, and the competition returning fire.

Despite all the talk about automation, there were plenty of people on hand for Oracle Corp. (Nasdaq: ORCL)'s annual convocation of the faithful.

Also on hand: a futuristic hotel and car. And dogs. And me and my camera.

Here's some of what I saw, and links to our OpenWorld coverage.

 

The conference took over all three buildings of San Francisco's Moscone Center. Oracle also took over the street between the two main Moscone buildings, where you can see attendees relaxing and catching up on work.

Live Digital Audio

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
