Fast Data in Action

      A demonstration of how Fusion Middleware can be used to build an architecture based on Oracle Event Processor, Coherence and Oracle Database for customers that have a requirement for a mixture of real-time processing, near-time analysis and long running batch analysis of the same or a similar data set. This use-case is certainly common in Financial Services where customers need to process market and financial data in real-time as well as analyse long-term trends in large data sets. This architecture will also be applicable to any industry where the customer has requirements for analysing data at different frequencies and volumes.

     For example:
       • Financial Services -- Real-time Market and Financial data
       • Commercial Banking -- Customer Experience
       • Retail -- Real-time point of sale analysis
       • Telecommunications -- Real-time billing analysis
       • Oil and Gas -- Drilling (upstream) analysis
       • Energy -- Smart metering
       • Logistics -- Vehicle location analysis

In January 2014 we recorded a webcast for Fast Data. Please see it here.

Your Cinnamon Roll & Morning Coffee: Powered by Oracle Enterprise Manager

Truth be told, as I was getting my morning coffee today, I was pondering the recent election results more than Oracle [there, I said it]. But then an email from Glen Hawkins from the Enterprise Management team hit my Inbox and I started viewing this video. It was about the world’s largest convenience store chain, 7-Eleven, focusing on creating the best Digital Guest Experience (DGE) for their customers. Turns out that Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM) powers 7-Eleven’s DGE Middleware Platform as a Service solution that consists of Oracle SOA Suite, Exalogic, and Exadata. “We need to present a consistent view of 7-Eleven across all our endpoints: 10,000 stores & various digital entities like our websites and apps”, said Ronald Clanton, the DGE Program Director for 7-Eleven. As 7-Eleven was rolling out a loyalty program with mobile support across multiple geos, it had many complex business & technical requirements, including supporting a wide variety of different apps, 10M guests in NA alone, ability to support high speed transactions, and very aggressive timelines. A key requirement was shortening the cycle for provisioning new environments. Whereas with other vendors this would take a few weeks, Oracle consulting showed them how with OEM provisioning new environments would take half a day, which was quite impressive. 7-Eleven has started to roll out this new program and are delighted to report that some provisioning cycles are as low as 10 minutes which includes provisioning the full Oracle SOA suite, Exalogic and more. They are delighted with OEM’s reporting capabilities and customization thereof. Watch the video to see for yourself.
