Exalytics lowers the Operational Cost of Infrastructure for Business Analytics

It is natural that when evaluating Exalytics and planning for its adoption, organisations want to be sure that they can manage it effectively on a day to day basis in the context of their existing skill sets and organisational structures. As well as radically increased performance and capacity, a significant result of architectural simplification is that Exalytics can be much simpler to manage, thus offering the potential for more agile and lower cost administration. The white papers below provide examples of simplified administration and explain how these benefits can be maximised by considering 4 key questions;

  • Is Exalytics the same as standard Oracle hardware and software?
  • People. What impact, if any, might Exalytics have on application server support organisations?
  • Process. What tasks does the Exalytics support organisation need to be able to address?
  • Technology. What are the primary tools recommended to manage Exalytics systems?

To assist Partners, I.T. managers and senior executives, who are evaluating or planning for Exalytics deployments, to understand how to manage it as efficiently as possible and how it can fit into their support organisations and processes we have produced a white paper (Part1 below). More details of best practise for administration tasks are then also provided in the companion white paper, Managing Oracle Engineered Systems – Exalytics: Part 2 Administration Tasks and Tools.

  1. You can download these white papers from our BI & EPM Partner community Oracle fileshare...
  2. You will need your normal Oracle logon to do this.... (if you are already registered for this OPN Specialist fileshare).
  3. To get registered for this OPN Specialist fileshare, you need to be a current OPN member BI/EPM Specialist, and then to email to me your Oracle logon Userid (usually your corporate email id), so I can grant you access to it.

Information Management and Big Data Reference Architecture

This is essential reading for all Oracle Analytics partners, and something you can share with your customers. Here is the latest February 2013 version of the “Information Management and Big Data Reference Architecture” Oracle White Paper from our Doug Cackett and Andrew Bond.

“In our original white paper on Information Management Reference Architecture we described how information was at the heart of every successful, profitable and transparent business in the world – something that’s as true today as it was then.

What has changed in the last few years is the emergence of “Big Data”, both as a means of managing the vast volumes of unstructured and semi-structured data stored but not exploited in many organizations, as well as the potential to tap into new sources of insight such as social-media web sites to gain a market edge.

There is a pressing need for organizations to align analytical and execution capabilities with ‘Big Data’ in order to fully benefit from the additional insight that can be gained. Received wisdom suggests that more than 80% of current IT budgets is consumed just keeping the lights on rather than enabling business to innovate or differentiate themselves in the market. Economic realities are squeezing budgets still further. For organizations looking to add some element of Big Data to their IT portfolio, they will need to do so in a way that complements existing solutions and does not add to the cost burden in years to come.”
