Oracle, HP Address Enterprise Need for Fast, Secure Data Analysis

Business executives want to operate in real time. If sales are up or down marketing executives want to know about it right away. If a competitor cuts prices or dwindling inventory is going to mean constricted shipments or the social media is starting to chatter about your company’s poor customer service, you want to get that information as soon as possible so you can act on it.

Business executives also want to operate in a secure company. Leaky customer data, competitors fishing for your future plans or restricted information entering the public domain can undo a company’s best laid plans.

While fast will never be fast enough or security perfectly tight, there were some technology announcements this week that show help is on the way. Oracle claims that their previously announced 12c in-memory system will be shipping in sixty days. Then Hewlett-Packard introduced a set of encryption tools that would make it much tougher for the bad guys to get your data.

Oracle is late to the in-memory race, but on its face the Oracle in-memory system has some advantages over the competition. The rise of solid state memory to take over the tasks previously performed on spinning disks is one of the more positive enterprise business developments of the past several years.

The promise and the reality of in-memory database systems is that they can now generate reports that once took weeks to run in a matter of minutes. However, the effort required to prepare data and applications to run in-memory can run from trivial to prodigious. The Oracle system promises to be able to run previously developed applications without modification, a claim SAP’s HANA in-memory system is challenged to match.
