The heart and soul of Oracle, Larry Ellison, admits his company is in a new cloud-based era.

The world’s sixth richest man also said companies like Salesforce, Workday and Amazon are now his chief rivals.

Ellison claims Oracle is the now the fastest growing cloud company in the world.

In this day and age where companies keep accumulating data, most still keep it at their own data centers. But Ellison said Oracle’s new software services make it easier than ever to migrate that data to the cloud, have it run properly there and transfer it back and forth.

Oracle also announced its acquisition of cloud security startup Palerra. In addition, Ellison went so far as to cite alleged Russian hackings as one reason why Oracle isn’t taking any chances on keeping data safe.

Oracle also introduced a new platform to create chatbots, artificial intelligence-based assistants that respond to messages through text.
