Oracle today announced updates to the Oracle Customer Experience (CX) Cloud Suite to support the connected digital enterprise with new artificial intelligence applications, data analytics solutions, and innovative search, voice, and video capabilities.

Instead, we are focused on helping our customers remove barriers that prevent their employees from focusing on the customer and creating epic experiences.
