Welcome to the May/June 2018 issue of Oracle Magazine, focused on the Internet of Things.
This issue's cover story, IoT: The Business of Everywhere, looks at IoT's evolution from emerging technology to business opportunity. Customers of Oracle Internet of Things, Oracle Service Cloud, and Oracle Marketing Cloud describe their IoT experiences and the value it's delivering to their companies.
In Building Business from Data, Harish Gaur, Oracle senior director, product management, Internet of Things, describes use cases for IoT that improve operations, improve visibility, and enable new business models.
Our emerging technology and database developer how-to articles in this issue focus on modern devices and data formats. Frank Nimphius, in Building Complex Bot Responses with Ease, demonstrates how to improve on last issue’s pizza-ordering chatbot using Oracle Intelligent Bots. For database developers, Dan McGhan's Build REST APIs for Node.js, Part 1 is the first in a multipart series that describes how to start building those APIs. Steven Feuerstein's Working with JSON Arrays in PL/SQL describes how to use PL/SQL in the latest Oracle Database services to construct and manipulate in-memory JSON arrays.
