June’s live Cloud Wars Expo event featured dozens of industry leaders allowing the Acceleration Economy team access to the inner workings of the greatest growth market the world has ever known. If you missed the Expo, or just want to catch up on sessions you were not able to attend, then you’re in luck. We recorded more than 40 hours of education sessions from the event, which we are previewing in this series of video Moments, which feature highlights from each Cloud Wars Expo session.
In this Cloud Wars Expo Moment, Oracle EVP Mike Sicilia, in the beginning of his main stage keynote discussion with Bob Evans, discusses the need for cloud elasticity and industry-specific applications.
00:16 — Industry functionality isn’t entirely new; industry-specific applications have been around for some time. However, the idea of an ecosystem being built around these applications is a relatively new development.
00:55 — The modern cloud infrastructure must allow businesses to scale up and down as needed, particularly in a mid- and post-Covid-19 environment.
01:48 — The more businesses transition from their own data centers to the cloud, the more the need for tailored applications naturally grows.
