Oracle CEO Mark Hurd with Bill Blausey at Blockland Solutions Conference

Oracle CEO Mark Hurd sat down with Eaton’s Bill Blausey at Blockland Solutions Conference in Cleveland, Ohio to talk about blockchain and emerging technologies and his predictions for the tech industry. One of the main points Hurd wanted to drive home was the idea that new technology advancements won’t eliminate jobs, but will instead create new positions.

This is going to create more opportunity for decision makers, for people that lead, for programmers that can do things that, frankly, skillsets haven’t yet enabled people to do, with the technologies that are coming. I think most processes will be touched by this automation. It’s a very exciting time to be in IT.
