New Big Data Appliance BDA X6-2

The Big Data Appliance X6-2 is designed to meet the demands of evolving big data workloads which are less batch-oriented and increasingly near-real-time; delivering more value at the same price as prior models.

In-memory workloads are largely driven by the emergence of Spark as a processing engine and innovative new applications and discovery tools like Oracle Big Data Discovery.  With 20% more cores and twice the memory, BDA X6-2 is optimized to meet the rigorous demands of the new processing frameworks.

How to Sell your Partner BICS Solution Offer with the Oracle Sales Team

Internal to Oracle, we have a portal repository for the use of the global Oracle Business Analytics Sales Team, so they can easily find Analytics Cloud Partner Solutions (the “Analytics Cloud Partner Solutions Portal”).  This is private within Oracle to protect any partner ideas and confidential information: although it can of course also include any public information too (such as URLs to your web-site).

The portal holds details of all BICS & DVCS offerings from Partners that wish to collaborate with the Oracle sales team; and you can input and update your information to this portal. These Partner solution offerings can be, for example, quick start implementation services, and provide some pre-built content or “Apps”, built in BICS or DVCS, maybe with connectors to applications (ERP, CRM, HR...) that partners can implement to provide customers with a fast path to value.

Oracle Sales people select an area (e.g. EMEA from the regions menu) ... And then filter on multiple values including things such as Country, Industry, Data sources and so on.... These Oracle Sales people can then contact the partner to approach customers and to do joint marketing campaigns.

So, if you want to sell your Partner BICS Solution Offer with the Oracle Sales Team, then download this Partner Cloud Solutions Portal - Info Needed Guide.pptx * and send us your solution offers in the templates provided, and our sales team can then find you and introduce you to their customers.

* To download, you need to gain access to the Emea Analytics Partner shared folder. If you do not already have access granted (e.g. the link above does not work), then send to Mike.Hallett@Oracle.com your Oracle.com logon-ID, and I will add you.
