Redefining Real-time Database Performance

Published By: Oracle     Published Date: Oct 20, 2017
Databases have long served as the lifeline of the business. Therefore, it is no surprise that performance has always been top of mind. Whether it be a traditional row-formatted database to handle millions of transactions a day or a columnar database for advanced analytics to help uncover deep insights about the business, the goal is to service all requests as quickly as possible. This is especially true as organizations look to gain an edge on their competition by analyzing data from their transactional (OLTP) database to make more informed business decisions. The traditional model (see Figure 1) for doing this leverages two separate sets of resources, with an ETL being required to transfer the data from the OLTP database to a data warehouse for analysis. Two obvious problems exist with this implementation. First, I/O bottlenecks can quickly arise because the databases reside on disk and second, analysis is constantly being done on stale data. In-memory databases have helped address p

Seven Principles for Achieving High Performance and Scalability for Information Integration

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Oct 17, 2017
Every day, torrents of data inundate IT organizations and overwhelm the business managers who must sift through it all to glean insights that help them grow revenues and optimize profits. Yet, after investing hundreds of millions of dollars into new enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), master data management systems (MDM), business intelligence (BI) data warehousing systems or big data environments, many companies are still plagued with disconnected, “dysfunctional” data—a massive, expensive sprawl of disparate silos and unconnected, redundant systems that fail to deliver the desired single view of the business. To meet the business imperative for enterprise integration and stay competitive, companies must manage the increasing variety, volume and velocity of new data pouring into their systems from an ever-expanding number of sources. They need to bring all their corporate data together, deliver it to end users as quickly as possible to maximize

TDWI Report/Checklist “Delivering Business Value Faster with Visual Analytics” (2016)

Published By: Oracle Analytics     Published Date: Oct 06, 2017
Business decision making is undergoing a data-infused renaissance. Organizations are tired of the limitations of spreadsheets and dealing with long IT business intelligence (BI) development cycles just to gain access to the data they need now. Fortunately, with the advent of visual analytics and discovery tools (many offered in the cloud), the journey to data insight is getting simpler and faster. Rather than trying to divine meaning from a group of predefined reports or simple static dashboards, visual analytics helps users gain insights from data more quickly using intuitive data visualization. Increasingly, visual analytics tools provide easy-touse data preparation features for better data access. They support collaboration, mashups, and storytelling. TDWI Research sees growing interest in applying more modern, up-to-date tools for working with data.

Forrester Report: “Balance Self-Service Analytics And Governance To Achieve Business Success”

Published By: Oracle Analytics     Published Date: Oct 06, 2017
Empowered with mobile and cloud-based access to a myriad of products and services, customers now have a variety of options at their fingertips with regards to partnerships. Enterprises that do not follow the ever-changing tastes and preferences of their customers, or that wait too long to react, will fall behind and fail. Across functions, business professionals readily require big data tools and insights to understand and serve these customers. It is no longer an option for business users to rely on IT to deliver customer and other relevant analytics. On the flipside, handing the analytics reins entirely to business users can make governance nearly impossible. Organizations must find balance in a new approach in which IT mostly governs and curates data while business users are empowered to derive insights from data mostly ontheir own without delay.
