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.

Oracle Data Integrator and GoldenGate Training

Oracle Data Integrator is a key strategic resource for an Oracle Big Data or Analytics partner. It is Oracle’s strategic ELT tool for BI-Apps v11, for Hybrid Cloud, and for an integrated Big Data architecture: and has strong technical advantages over competitive tools to provide better productivity and performance speed.

You can download a pre-built VM environment to trial ODI and Golden gate with the Oracle Big Data Lite 4.4 VM to see how it integrates Hadoop and Databases.

To learn more, select briefings and by-example hands-on tutorials from the Learning Library – here are some examples:

There are also lots of tutorials on YouTube, and there is also further Oracle University training available.

Big Data SQL on Cloudera and Hortonworks on all Hardware

Big Data SQL (version 3.0) is now available on any hardware with Cloudera or Hortonworks.

Most Oracle Data Warehouse customers are using Hadoop somewhere in their organization, and what they all want to avoid is information silos where different people and applications can only access a subset of the data.

With Big Data SQL we have a great solution to deliver one fast secure SQL, querying on all data, joining Hadoop, Oracle Databases, and NoSQL databases.

Big Data SQL runs on the Oracle Big Data Appliance and Exadata, but these are not mandatory. It works with any Cloudera or Hortonworks Hadoop cluster, and any Linux-based hardware for Oracle Database 12c (12.1.0.2 to be precise).

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.

1-Day Sales Workshop for Oracle Partners on Data Visualization and Modern Analytics

9th February 2016 in UK – Click here for more information – Free to all OPN Partners in EMEA

Business users want Self Service data Visualization and analytics where they can quickly mash-up their data with integrated enterprise data from ERP systems and data warehouses and Big Data. Combining this with an explosion in the variety and quantity of data, traditional IT approaches are struggling to keep up with costs and skills.

In this 1-Day Workshop for Oracle Partners we will present and demonstrate how Oracle is successfully selling solutions that rapidly deliver business value, and help our existing customer base to modernise and exploit their current investments in Oracle products and expand into new technologies such as Hadoop.

Partners can seize this great opportunity for self-service Data Visualisation by prototyping and showing visual stories to their clients; convincing them on the agility and depth of analysis the partner can deliver with an integrated Oracle architecture.

Click here for more information – Free to all OPN Partners in EMEA

To prepare yourself you can preview some of the new visualization tools such as:

  1. See and Try Oracle Data Visualisation to Re-Boot your Business
  2. And see Oracle Big Data Discovery Demos
  3. There are also many BICS tutorials @ BI Cloud Service - Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud Service DocumentationVideos and Tutorials.

Predictive and Advanced Analytics with Oracle BI

Partners can differentiate their services by adding extra smart predictive and advanced analytics to Oracle BI deployment projects.  Indeed OBI 12c now includes some capabilities integrated into OBI: but there are many additional techniques and tools to provide “data science” integrating Oracle Database, OBI and Hadoop with Advanced Analytics.

The core database Oracle Advanced Analytics product consists of two components, and you can learn more of these from a series of on-demand free of charge tutorials:

And there is a more general introduction @ Video Lecture Series Data Science Boot-Camp Tutorials. To get some practice on getting this all to work together, you can download pre-packaged VMs from OTN all set up ready to work:

Oracle University also offers Data Mining Techniques, available as Training on Demand, which includes access to labs to do the practical - you can see a demo on this course hereThere is also the Oracle R Enterprise Essentials course available as a scheduled Live Virtual Class.

There are many more aspects to “Advanced Analytics” with Oracle, for example you can follow some articles @ advanced and @ https://blogs.oracle.com/R/ and https://blogs.oracle.com/datamining/. Among the other components critical to specific types of analytical problems are the Spatial and the RDF-Graph options which run in the Database and we now have Big Data Spatial and Graph Analytics for Hadoop.

Oracle can even provide Real-Time Decisions using machine learning to make optimal decisions in the circa 100ms timeframe; reacting to events such as fraud detection, machine failure or to increase revenue by improving the probability of click-to-buy on a web-commerce shopping cart.
