Re: Encouraged by Oracle's Commitment
Laurianne:

Oracle is moving at the right pace. Offering a Big Data appliance and creating flexibility with their existing product base is fine for now. The obvious solutions for Big Data from the sales and marketing sectors have built this platform. Over the next few years we will see Big Data concepts explode into every vertical that utilizes large diverse data. From our engineering position consider the massive amount of data that is being acquired from electronic sensors built into equipment today. We are very interested in how we might utilize the Big Data analytic output with visualization techniques to help spot anomalies. We hope that our analytics tools produce conclusions but sometimes allowing a human to visualize the output is the only way to make sense of this massive amount of data. So maybe Oracle should investigate high density visualization techniques to highlight their Big Data solutions. This would be a step beyond normal BI visualization.

Thanks for sharing your perspective, Greg. Any other steps you'd like to see Oracle take in this regard?

Encouraged by Oracle's Commitment
Here at Missouri University of Science & Technology we are heavily committed to teaching "Big Data" to the extent of purchasing our own SAP HANA Appliance. But the reality for us and many of our corporate partners is that we live in an Oracle DB environment. Of course we are into Hadoop and the many options but I am encouraged by Oracle putting together a better appliance approach that spans all data repositories. I would expect we will explore this for the same reasons we acquired HANA. Great potential exists for how we might tie together the "Big Data" approach to many of our STEM research opportunities.
