Oracle Rolls Out Big Data Cloud Platform

29/10/2015 by Sharon Shahzad


Tech giant Oracle is pushing out a slew of cloud announcements at Oracle OpenWorld 2015 in San Francisco this week. One of the biggest taps into the big data trend.

The company unveiled the Oracle Cloud Platform for Big Data, which is positioned as an easier way for enterprises to access business value hidden within the mountains of information they collect. The overarching promise of the new solution is faster time to actionable insights.

“Big data is helping customers address critical areas: improving customer experience, reducing churn, streamlining operations and building Internet of Things applications,” said Thomas Kurian, president of Oracle, in a statement. He’s working to convince customers that the company’s new services -- Oracle Big Data Preparation Cloud Service, Oracle GoldenGate Cloud Service, Oracle Big Data Discovery Cloud Service [pictured] and Oracle NoSQL Database Cloud Service -- will answer those challenges.

Unified Big Data Management

Together with Oracle’s Big Data Cloud Service and Big Data SQL Cloud Service, the new services offer a portfolio of cloud solutions for big data that paves the way for enterprise IT to “integrate, aggregate, prepare and discover real-time insights from any and all data sources,” according to the company.

Cloud delivery, consumer applications, and ubiquitous mobility have fundamentally altered how users engage with their data, noted Tom Pringle, practice leader, information management at Ovum. That, in turn, has created new expectations about ease-of-use and access. With those realities in mind, he said he likes what he sees from Oracle.
