Mark Hurd Keynote: Why Big Data Management Will Drive the Future
By mharrist on Sep 23, 2013
After inviting the audience to participate in sending a personalized video message to ORACLE TEAM USA as they attempt to claim the America’s Cup trophy for a second time, Oracle President Mark Hurd turned his focus to the new dynamics of both customer service and big data at the Monday morning kickoff keynote at Oracle OpenWorld 2013.
Noting that there are nearly nine billion personal devices such as smartphones and tablet PCs being used worldwide—and that number is predicted to grow to 50 billion by 2020—Hurd’s focus was on getting value out of big data. Oracle’s range of products, including Oracle Exadata, Oracle Exalytics, Oracle NoSQL, Oracle Enterprise Manager, and the newly announced Oracle Database Backup Logging Recovery Appliance, is helping customers like Airbus, Thomson Reuters, Turkcell, UL, and the NYSE create a solid and extensible foundation for acquiring and making sense out of enormous volumes of data within hours rather than days or weeks.
Thomas Kurian, Oracle executive vice president, Product Development, supported Hurd’s remarks by reviewing the specifics of how customers can readily get value out of data, and how they can do so in an environment with an infrastructure that can be monitored, administered, patched, maintained, and upgraded—all within Oracle Enterprise Manager.
