While Oracle Databases rock, having the right skill-set to manage them might be a bigger struggle. The Oracle Autonomous Database is for that reason becoming more and more popular, as this database is fully managed and optimized by Oracle’s AI system.
Often to use a type is Database is dictated by the application. Does the application support that database. As Autonomous Database is relatively new, not all Apps support it yet.
This week I was pleasantly surprised to see that Oracle’s own apps are start to support the Autonomous Database!
