A Key Ingredient for Innovation

By Irem Radzik

Three Essential Data Integration Sessions

Our world is overloaded with information, typically stored in silos that hide the big picture your business needs to move forward. Data integration technology helps bring the pieces together from disparate systems across the enterprise and see the complete picture to make more-informed decisions. That’s why data integration is a key ingredient in finding innovative solutions for today’s never-ending business and IT challenges—and why it’s a key track at Oracle OpenWorld.

With 26 sessions, 20 customers and partners, 12 demos, and six hands-on labs, the Data Integration track covers a variety of topics including data warehousing, system migration/consolidation, data quality, data synchronization for high availability, application integration, cloud computing, and Master Data Management (MDM). And among the track’s many customer presenters you’ll find industry leaders such as Sabre Holdings, Sprint, FedEx, SiriusXM Radio, Citigroup, Thomson Reuters, and many more.

To get the most out of the Data Integration track at Oracle OpenWorld, download Focus on Data Integration, listen to a podcast preview, and don’t miss these three sessions:

  • Customer Panel: Achieving Zero-Downtime Upgrades and Migrations: FedEx, SiruisXM Radio, Dell Monday, October 3, 2 p.m., InterContinental San Francisco, Ballroom B

Get More Value

Oracle master data management value chains deliver more

By David Butler

Hamburgers and fries. Kites and wind. Movies and popcorn. Some things just go better together, providing more value. For example, consider Oracle master data management products. When you integrate Oracle master data management products with other Oracle technologies or applications, you accrue business value—the value chain.

For example, Oracle master data management products with Oracle Database Vault create value that neither product provides on its own: Oracle Database Vault is an outstanding technology for proactively safeguarding your application data, but without Oracle master data management products, you may inadvertently be safeguarding garbage.

Vale chains are the focus for the Oracle master data management track during Oracle OpenWorld, and all value chains will be covered—from clustered servers and Oracle Fusion Middleware, to applications and Oracle’s enterprise performance management system, as well as industry-specific value chains for financial services, retail, communications, and the public sector. Download the Focus On document (pdf) for a complete schedule of events and demonstrations.

And during the next six weeks, the Oracle master data management blog will post overviews of each of the key value chains that will be examined in detail at Oracle OpenWorld.
