Data Swamps Try Provenance to Clear Things Up

Data lineage used to be a nice-to-have capability because so much of the data feeding corporate dashboards came from trusted data warehouses. But in the big data era data lineage is a must-have because customers are mashing up company data with third-party data sets. Some of these new combinations incorporate high-quality, vendor-verified data. But others will use data that’s not officially perfect, but good for prototyping. When surprisingly valuable findings come from these opportunistic explorations, managers will look to the lineage to know how much work is required to raise it to production-quality levels.[Read More]

Evolution of Your Information Architecture

Information quality is the single most important benefit of an information architecture. If information cannot be trusted, then it is useless. Big Data is not an exception to this core principle.

Oracle commissioned IDC to do a study that illustrates how Oracle customers are approaching Big Data in the context of their existing and planned larger enterprise information architectures. The study was led by Dan Vesset, head of business analytics and big data research at IDC, who authored the paper, titled Six Patterns of Big Data and Analytics Adoption: The Importance of the Information Architecture, and you can get it in the blog post below.

Big Data = Bigger Responsibility

“Companies of all sizes and in virtually every industry are struggling to manage the exploding amounts of data,” says Neil Mendelson, vice president for big data and advanced analytics at Oracle. “But as both business and IT executives know all too well, managing big data involves far more than just dealing with storage and retrieval challenges—it requires addressing a variety of privacy and security issues as well.”

In a talk at the Technology Policy Institute’s 2013 Aspen Forum, Federal Trade Commission chairwoman Edith Ramirez described some big data pitfalls to be avoided. Though many organizations use big data for collecting non-personal information, there are others that use it “in ways that implicate individual privacy.”

With big data, comes bigger responsibility. A new joint Oracle and MIT Technology Review paper drills into these pitfalls and how organizations can mitigate them using Oracle's Big Data solution.
