Oracle Committed to Leadership in the Analytics Market

A number of analysts comment on the analytics marketplace from time to time, such as Forrester or Gartner: and as an Oracle partner we ask you to position these most effectively with your clients.

Specifically with the latest one from Gartner, Oracle chose not to participate in this survey for 2016, and if your clients ask about this we would ask that you individually present this “Oracle_Gartner BI Magic Quadrants Guidance.pdf” to your personal client contacts.*

As this guidance makes clear, our perspective is that your customers need a bi-modal analytics strategy designed for speed and discovery, as well as for consistency and scalability. Our market leadership grows from the integrated combination of these two capabilities with the foundation of OBI12c now integrated with Oracle Data Visualisation.

Also check out his blog from our VP Rich Clayton - Oracle’s Perspective on the Analytics Market.

See and Try Data Visualisation for Big Data

By now you have probably already looked at how you can See and Try Oracle Data Visualisation to Re-Boot your Business, and maybe you are thinking how can you do this for your clients who have complex problems with large amounts of data in many different varieties of formats, probably with lots of text and documents (email, call-centre notes, asset maintenance logs, click streams, twitter, facebook…).

Maybe these clients have already started with Hadoop, but would like to be more productive in their “Data Science” and need to show their business executives some visual stories about the “big data” and how this can create business value.

To start with you can still use Oracle Data Visualisation to access data in Hadoop – for instance see this video demonstration @ OBI 12.2.1 : Visual Analyzer on Big Data. Here the information being used is joining database sets with structured data on Hadoop.

For un-structured, messy data, text information, and where the number of data-sets is large and being acquired so fast that your teams are finding it hard to define structures and prioritise where to start… then you need Oracle Big Data Discovery (BDD) to pre-analyse, mash-up, clean-up, and visualize the many different data sets together – and then to share your evolving insights and analysis with business analysts who can see the value and prioritise further work.

  1. For example I suggest you start with Getting Started with Oracle Big Data Discovery – Module 2: Process Overview (maybe even skip to 2.30 minutes into this video …).
  2. Then review the whole Oracle Big Data Discovery Playlists,
  3. And to download your own VM image with Hadoop, Oracle DB12c and BDD 1.1.1 try Download VM Oracle Big Data Lite 4.2.1 Including Big Data Discovery
  4. And then check back to Partners’ Get-Started-Kit with Oracle Big Data and Analytics and more articles at big and advanced.

 

For partners, we are running a series of 2-day technical training workshops on Big Data Discovery in EMEA (e.g. in UK), so look out to join these in your or nearby countries.

Hopefully this will get you more productive in your Big Data Science practices and help you visualize a greater variety of solutions and business value for your clients: or even just to make Hadoop a lot easier for your consultants to exploit.
