Larry makes some interesting points
.. but nothing particularly new to the world, and he glosses over the hard parts - e.g. is an activity spike an attack or the result of a sales promotion?
"Machine learning technologies will be used to detect normal patterns in the data, and take programmed actions when an anomaly is identified"
Yeah, the hard part is working out the rules and responses. But if Oracle Corp can pre-populate many of those from their Sun & DB teams experiences, that knowledge is a saleable product (A bit like Splunk Apps)
I wish them luck!
P.S. What _is_ the "general ledger"? The servers? The database? The front end app? Crack the problem of describing that (a CMDB?) and you're a long way towards using natural language.
