Oracle said it has added generative AI throughout its Fusion Cloud Applications Suite and expanded its Oracle Database at Microsoft Azure effort into Germany with more regions around the world on tap.

The announcements were made at Oracle CloudWorld in London. The Oracle Database@Azure plans were previewed on Oracle's third quarter earnings conference call. With the launch of Oracle Database@Azure in Frankfurt, Oracle is planning on adding 15 regions globally including France, Italy, UK, India, Japan, Australia and United Arab Emirates and others.

Oracle CTO Larry Ellison said Japan is shaping up to be a big market for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) and sovereign data workloads are critical.
