Oracle sees a very vibrant and active software development scenario in India, with developers working on all spectrums of technology. In particular, Oracle finds there’s more developer appetite for cutting edge technologies such as Containers, Chatbots etc. for building innovative applications.
To connect with Indian developers, Oracle has brought its global flagship developer conference, Oracle Code to Bangalore for the first time. This is an opportunity for developers to experience easy, modern and open cloud development technology with workshops and other live, interactive experiences and demos.
As the speed-to-market business imperative has redefined application development practices, developers are looking to quickly create applications with microservices, APIs, containers, mobile backends and chatbots using modern DevOps processes and thus, are realizing the need for rich and robust platform capabilities.
According to Oracle, the trends that are most visible with developers in India are:
Cloud Native development using Microservices set to go mainstream:Microservices based development is no longer a buzzword, but a best practice to deliver products quickly to the business in the digital era. This boosts agility, giving enterprises a significant competitive edge
Real chatbot applications with natural language processing will become the norm by 2018: Using chatbots, existing applications can be extended to newer channels, while newer applications can interact in novel ways
Open standards, open platform and open source remains a key priority: As developers want zero lock-in they will continue to contribute to the open source
“With the democratization of coding, Oracle is committed towards developing, supporting, and promoting various technologies for developers. India is a critical market for us and Oracle Cloud Platform validated for India Stack is a testimony to our commitment. We’ll continue to engage with and empower the vibrant developer community here to build world-class products” said Ravi Pinto, Director – Product Management, Oracle Cloud Platform and Cloud machine, who was present at the Oracle Code event yesterday in Bangalore.
