Oracle sheds more light on 12c database and Exadata X3 machine
The key feature of 12c, which is set for release sometime next year, is multitenancy, which enables users, if they desire, to create multiple &#34pluggable&#34 databases that reside within a single database container, senior vice president Andy Mendelsohn said during a keynote address. This constitutes "a fundamental re-architecture of the database," Mendelsohn added. "Now if I'm an administrator, I have one database overall to administer.".

Database 12c also makes much more efficient use of hardware resources, saving companies money, Mendelsohn said. For example, it incorporates a &#34heat map&#34 feature that tracks how frequently different chunks of data are used, allowing customers to archive rarely accessed information on lower-cost mediums.

Loaiza also provided a sense of the market uptake for Exadata, which was first introduced in 2008. He also sought to show audience members that Exadata is relatively easy to deploy, bringing on an executive from PayPal who described how the company took its Exadata from a pilot project to a "business decision platform" in just 60 days…[Read more]

Oracle OpenWorld: Oracle goes social
Oracle has, to no-one’s great surprise, entered the social media fray as an important adjunct to its existing efforts in big data analytics. The pairing has rapidly become the eggs and bacon of enterprise development into the future, as all aspects of social media are likely to become the most prolific creators of data that needs analyzing to tease out new market, product or market opportunities.

So, during his second keynote presentation of the week at Oracle OpenWorld, CEO Larry Ellison took the opportunity to announce the Oracle Social Relationship Management (SRM) Suite. This is an integrated enterprise service that enables companies to do all those things that help identify trends and opportunities, such as listen, engage, create, market, and analyse interactions across multiple social platforms in real-time. The objective, of course, is to provide as comprehensive and holistic view of customers and consumers as possible…[Read more]
