Joining the Chatbot Club, Oracle has announced the launch of a new platform to build and run chatbots. The Chief Technology Officer, Larry Ellison, made the recent announcement from the global stage of Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco.
The latest move by Oracle is about the launch of Chatbots that draw similarities with Facebook Messenger, Slack and others of the same ilk, reports VentureBeat. The news comes close on the heels of Facebook and Microsoft hinting at advancing towards the Chatbots age.
As per the details shared by the report, the new tool, developed under the aegis of Oracle, will allow the users to drag and drop on a graphical interface instead of writing in PHP, JAVA and other computing scripts. Giving a glimpse of its structural design, Oracle showed a Messenger chatbot built on an iOS platform. “He exchanged text-based messages with the bot, which went by the name Oracle Mobile Procurement, to place an order for a new set of business cards,” adds the report.
