What are your plans around Big Data and Cloud?
If your organization has already begun to explore these topics, you might be interested a new offering from Oracle that will dramatically simplify how you use your data in Hadoop and the Cloud:
There is a perception that most of the time spent in Big Data projects is dedicated to harvesting value. The reality is that 90% of the time in Big Data projects is really spent on data preparation. Data may be structured, but more often it will be semi-structured such as weblogs, or fully unstructured such as free form text. The content is vast, inconsistent, and incomplete, often off topic, and from multiple differing formats and sources. In this environment each new dataset takes weeks or months of effort to process, frequently requiring programmers writing custom scripts. Minimizing data preparation time is the key to unlocking the potential of Big Data.
Oracle Big Data Preparation Cloud Service (BDP) addresses this very reality. BDP is a non-technical, web-based tool that sets out to minimize data preparation time in an effort to quickly unlock the potential of your data. The BDP tool provides an interactive set of services that automate, streamline, and guide the process of data ingestion, preparation, enrichment, and governance without costly manual intervention.
The technology behind this service is amazing; it intuitively guides the user with a machine learning driven recommendation engine based on semantic data classification and natural language processing algorithms. But the best part is that non-technical staff can use this tool as easily as they use Excel, resulting in a significant cost advantage for data intensive projects by reducing the amount of time and resources required to ingest and prepare new datasets for downstream IT processes.
