Oracle Enterprise Metadata Management 12c for Big Data and Analytics

One of the best reasons for introducing Hadoop into your clients is as a lower cost ETL and staging platform for any data warehouse... the so called “Data Lake” Concept. But as discussed by Gartner “Beware of the Data Lake Fallacy”... this still needs governance: “Without descriptive metadata and a mechanism to maintain it, the data lake risks turning into a data swamp.”

So, as a follow on to my last blog ( Partners’ Get-Started-Kit with Oracle Big Data and Analytics ), let’s now explore how you can help your clients to better govern and manage a cost effective data lake that delivers additional value to their data warehouse.

Oracle has expanded its Oracle Data Integration portfolio with the addition of Oracle Enterprise Metadata Management 12c, a comprehensive platform that helps reduce compliance risks and ensure the success of governance programs within organizations by providing much-needed business and data transparency (read the Press Release). Together with Oracle Enterprise Data Quality, Oracle Big Data SQL, and Oracle Database security you can manage and control all aspects of big data stewardship, lifecycle management, data protection, auditing, security, and compliance.

To find out more, start with these two webcasts:

Data Quality and Metadata Management for Big Data Governance webcast:
  • Understand how data governance can be applied to big data
  • Explore new Oracle Enterprise Metadata Management technology
  • Learn how data quality is integral to any data governance initiative

Big Data Integration for the Big Data Reservoir webcast:

  • Keep big data reservoirs accurate and real-time using Oracle Data Integrator and Oracle GoldenGate
  • Leverage Hadoop and Data Integration technologies across heterogeneous environments
  • Implement best practices using big data reservoirs to unlock the most value from your enterprise big data

Then try the Tutorial @ Tame Big Data with Oracle Data Integration

And Download a full version of Oracle Enterprise Metadata Management 12c software and documentation.

Partners’ Get-Started-Kit with Oracle Big Data and Analytics

If you are struggling with how (and why) to get started with “Big Data” and Hadoop based tools with Oracle and your Analytics practice, then see below for some resources and I will post some additional topics and hints on this theme in the next month. Especially start by trying the ETL tools (ODI & GoldenGate) on Hadoop as a lower cost ETL and staging platform for any data warehouse, and try out the new Oracle Big Data Discovery, Now Available - The Visual Face of Hadoop.

Hands-on Labs - Big Data and Analytics

There are several hands-on-labs available to help you get started with the platform which you can practice by downloading the pre-configured VM (Oracle Big Data Lite Virtual Machine):

Oracle recently announced the enhanced version of Oracle GoldenGate 12c with expanded support for heterogeneous databases and big data solutions, improved manageability, and support for hybrid cloud environments.

Oracle GoldenGate 12c provides best-of-breed, real-time data integration and heterogeneous database replication. Among many new features, is better support for Big Data with Oracle GoldenGate Adapter for Java enabling integration with Oracle NoSQL, Apache Hadoop, Apache HDFS, Apache HBase, Apache Storm, Apache Flume, Apache Kafka, and others which allows real-time, noninvasive data streaming into big data targets to give customers new insights into business and improve the customer experience.

Oracle GoldenGate is part of the industry-leading Oracle Data Integration portfolio, which includes real-time and bulk data movement, transformations, data governance, data virtualization, data quality and meta-data management. Oracle Data Integration has also gained notable industry recognition, with Gartner, Inc. naming Oracle a Leader in its July 24, 2014 Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools and Database Trends and Applications naming Oracle GoldenGate 12c a winner in the “Best Data Replication Solution” category of its 2014 Readers’ Choice Awards.

“Before embarking on a big data or cloud journey, enterprises need to ensure that they are not creating any more data silos – disjointed analytics leads to partial insights,” said Surya Mukherjee, senior analyst, Information Management at Ovum. “Oracle GoldenGate 12c is a step in the right direction; its new features allow real-time data integration across their diverse data platforms, so that enterprises can build strategies for their data and application universe, whether it be in the cloud, on-premises,  structured, or semi-structured.
