This is a great example of the evolution happening in Oracle Data Warehousing environments as customers consolidate databases into a single source of truth for their businesses with Oracle Exadata. Not only was Targetbase able to integrate large volumes of social, retail, and point-of-sale (POS) data, such as Web blogs, to drive richer and more actionable insights for their clients. They enabled real-time analytics scoring and consumer-specific text mining on large volumes of marketing-related data while achieving some great performance gains with up to 40x faster queries. Learn how Oracle Database compression features helped reduce their storage costs by 30%.

A few times a year, I'm asked to update the Oracle Database Reference Booklet. Each time, the number of customers benefiting from upgrading to the Oracle Database grows. Read for yourself how an airline cut analysis time for travel partner bookings from 10 hours to 10 minutes, helping staff develop better informed partner sales and marketing strategies. Or how a bank completed their database upgrade without disruption to their day-to-day operations and minimized system downtime for more than 2 million customers, who expect around the clock services. Or how a manufacturing company saved an expected US$609,000 on storage hardware costs. These are just of few of the customer who improved performance, provided better service for their customers and saved money with the Oracle Database.
Need a good reason to upgrade to the Oracle Database? Look no further.

The best part of my job is getting to speak with Oracle customers about their experiences with our products. I recently spoke with Sven Lareum, BI Expert at Heidelberg, the world's leading service and solution provider in the print media industry about the five-figure cost savings they realized when Oracle Advanced Compression was deployed in their SAP environment.
Not only did they reduce storage consumption by 50%, they dramatically improved report processing times and database operational performance to achieve a total return on their investment in less than 5 months. Pretty amazing.
