    Cloud Computing SIG Techcast: Database as a Service (DBaaS): How to Create a Database Cloud Service
    Michael Timpanaro-Perrotta and Burt Clouse, Oracle Corporation 

    The evolution from traditional IT silos to a service-oriented cloud environment involves several steps. The first step is to identify the essential services that IT will provide. Then, rationalize the variety of vendor and technology components supporting the current estate to a standardized and manageable set. By reducing complexity and increasing standardization, IT is able to more efficiently consolidate workloads, automate more processes and deliver services faster, all with lower risk and costs. In this webcast, the concepts will be illustrated with customer use case examples. A catalog of standardized Oracle Database service offerings will also be presented.

It is now a mainstream business technology strategy that is delivering the agility and flexibility that businesses require to move forward.

While definitions of “cloud” vary, for purposes of this survey, “private cloud” is defined as on-demand shared services provided to internal departments or lines of business within enterprises. “Public cloud” is defined as on-demand services provided by public cloud providers.
