Oracle Database In-Memory Ease of Use and Instant Analytics Empowers SAP Customers

Oracle recently announced that Oracle Database 12c and Oracle Database In-Memory were now certified and supported by SAP for use with SAP Solutions. Our ongoing collaboration with SAP ensures the latest Oracle Database technology is always available to our joint customers.

The common need for instant analytics is pervasive, whether it’s a business running SAP applications with SAP BusinessObjects or an individual user searching for available tee times or hotel rooms. When we press the <ENTER> or <Search> key, we expect information instantly. With Oracle Database In-Memory, both IT and their end users can access analytics instantly. Below are two use cases illustrating how customers benefit from the speed and ease of adoption of Oracle Database In-Memory

Engineered for Ease of Adoption:

Oracle Database In-Memory is designed with ease of adoption in mind. No application changes or migration of data is required.

Swiss insurance leader, Die Mobiliar, chose the Oracle Database to be the strategic database after a series of mergers and acquisition. Important in the database decision were the impressive performance improvements that Oracle Database In-Memory offered to existing applications and the fact that no changes or fine-tuning were required to achieve these performance benefits. For example, one report that was running in 200 to 300 seconds now runs in just 1 second. The enabler for this is Oracle Database In-Memory’s unique dual-format architecture that allows for fast analytics together with high-performance OLTP. Data is processed at a rate of billions of rows per second rather than millions and allows analytics to run directly in OLTP databases to help provide reports in seconds rather than the traditional days or week’s manual efforts.

Designed for Speed & Cost Savings:

Shanghai Customs is a government agency for the General Administration of Customs in China. It oversees the surveillance and control of imports and exports through the Shanghai Free Trade Zone (SHFTZ). Shanghai Customs experienced rapid growth in SHFTZ’s customs activities due to the significant increase in re-export and off-shore trade and the expansion of customs duties and business rules. In response, they have used Oracle Database 12c, Oracle Database In-Memory, and Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database to build a new customs-surveillance and control-information platform that ensures efficient logistics operations and supports future trade growth.

Oracle Database In-Memory’s dual-format architecture enables customers to automatically route OLTP transactions to the traditional row format and OLAP queries to Oracle’s new in-memory column format, expanding memory capacity and improving query performance. This approach helps to eliminate the need to copy analytical data out of the OLTP environment into a data warehouse thereby reducing system complexity and storage costs.

Oracle Times-Ten In-Memory Database further adds to speed and cost savings. By storing transactional and analytical data in Oracle Database 12c and managing this data with Oracle Database In-Memory and Oracle Times-Ten In-Memory Database in the application tier, customers can gain microsecond response times to accelerate data processing and achieve microseconds response times.

Stay tuned for more examples of customer use cases for Database In-Memory.

Larry announces Oracle Database In-Memory Option

Oracle OpenWorld 2013 started yesterday and San Francisco is a buzz with Larry Ellison’s announcement of the Oracle Database In-Memory option.

During last night’s keynote, Larry explained how the Oracle Database In-Memory option dramatically accelerates Analytics, Data Warehousing, Reporting, and OLTP performance by allowing data to be stored in-memory in a columnar format.

Having worked at Oracle for years on query optimization, I've personally seen the excruciating effort that enterprises go to in order to squeeze the most performance out of their systems. A lot of our customers run mission-critical systems on Oracle Databases, so their ability to get answers quickly literally translates into their own competitive advantage. Oracle Database In-Memory is one of the most exciting products I've worked on, because it takes companies to a whole new frontier of data-driven decision-making and competitiveness. And as Larry said, it'll be as simple as flipping a switch. Every application that runs on Oracle Database 12c can automatically and transparently take advantage of the Oracle Database In-Memory option.

If you are lucky enough to be attending Oracle Open World, and want a more detailed explanation of the Oracle Database In-Memory option check the Oracle Database In-Memory—The Next Big Thing Session GEN9312 Presented by Juan Loaiza at 11:45am in Moscone South - room 103. Or stop by the Oracle Database In-Memory demo on the engineered systems showcase in the lower lobby of Moscone North.
