Partner Perspective: Cloud, Big Data and Trust
By Mharrist-Oracle on Oct 01, 2012
Cloud computing is transforming the way IT deploys infrastructure, builds applications, and provides access to users. It is also emerging as the only viable means of managing the exponential increase in the demand for compute power and the data volumes of today's IT landscape. Coupled with breakthroughs in big data analytics and data science, IT visionaries now have the ability to transform the businesses they serve.
These new capabilities are uncovering dramatic new value in the information being created, while also giving rise to increasingly sophisticated threats and intrusions. Thus, any cloud computing or big data implementation can only succeed if it is underpinned by a foundation of trust that the information and infrastructure is uncompromised and available 24/7.
In Tuesday morning’s keynote at 8:00 a.m., EMC Chairman and CEO Joe Tucci will review the key technology trends enabling cloud, big data, and trust. He will provide his perspective on the transformative effect of these trends on IT and business and the essential role that Oracle OpenWorld attendees can play in these profound transformations.
Meanwhile, in London, New York, and Singapore, data collected from individuals around the world will be featured in “The Human Face of Big Data,” a project sponsored by EMC. This groundbreaking, globally crowdsourced initiative is based on the premise that the realtime visualization of data collected by satellites and by billions of sensors, RFID tags, and GPS-enabled cameras and smartphones around the world is enabling humanity to sense, measure, understand, and affect our existence in exciting new ways.
Oracle and EMC have partnered closely for 17 years and share 70,000 joint customers worldwide. According to IDC, more Oracle data resides on EMC storage than any other vendor. This success is based on a history of developing unique product integration, best practices, proven solutions, and pre-release beta testing using real-world Oracle workloads. EMC and Oracle provide outstanding customer support and enjoy co-located, joint customer service escalation centers and live technology centers in Menlo Park and Santa Clara, California; Reston, Virgina; Atlanta, Georgia; Hopkinton, Massachusetts; and Cork, Ireland.
