Thomas Kurian, Oracle’s executive vice president of product development, began his keynote speech at Oracle OpenWorld 2014 by discussing three major trends in business and culture—big data, mobility, and the cloud. He then detailed and demoed new products and services from Oracle that enhance customers’ ability to make use of all three.
Kurian introduced a new set of tools called Oracle Big Data Discovery, which allows database managers and engineers to work more effectively with Hadoop, as “the visual face of Hadoop”. Oracle Big Data Discovery lets users profile, explore, and analyze Hadoop data, and do prediction and correlation. “With Oracle Big Data Discovery, you will be able to explore and find patterns and problems with your data,” Kurian said. Find out what Information Week reported about this Hadoop Data Exploration Tool.
Oracle Big Data Discovery combined with Oracle Big Data SQL, a recently introduced toolset for working with data across relational and big data systems using Structured Query Language, represent a powerful combination of technologies for supporting a truly effective big data strategy.
Kurian also referenced several other technology developments by Oracle:
- New cloud services, including Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud Service and Oracle Introduces Oracle Analytics Cloud.
- Oracle’s high-performance In-Memory Database Option is now available on Oracle Exalytics working with Oracle Business Intelligence Suite.
- A new interface for Oracle Business Intelligence Suite that enables users to “mash up” personal data with corporate data for improved visual analysis.
