ORACLE CLOUDWORLD — It’s almost as though COVID-19 never happened. On Tuesday, thousands of people converged on the Venetian Convention and Expo Center in Las Vegas for Oracle’s much-anticipated cloud event.

The day started with a series of keynote conversations between CEO Safra Catz and a range of key Oracle customers. Each discussed how Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is changing and elevating how they do business. (We deliver the specifics in the slideshow above.)

Along the way, we took some miscellaneous photos of the activity happening outside of the keynote room. People could lounge while a DJ played music, or they could attend sessions, or they could get lunch on the CloudWorld show floor and check out the many, various booths.

Then, the first afternoon of Oracle CloudWorld wrapped up with a keynote speech from Oracle founder and CTO Larry Ellison. Hint: Ellison has an extremely big vision for Oracle and Cerner, and, frankly, the whole world’s health care systems.

“What we are trying to do has never been attempted before,” he said.

(He also talked a little bit about multicloud interconnectivity — we cover that, too.)

See our slideshow above for a roundup of Oracle CloudWorld’s first day back after a two-year break.
