  • Oracle's one-size-fits-all big data management strategy doesn't fit

    After Team Oracle's victory in the America's Cup, it's clear that the company is hot on big data -- and not just the technology necessary to make use of it. Oracle shops, too, need to be ready to take advantage of big data. And, as readers will quickly come to learn, staying afloat in the business of big data takes more than the one-size-fits-all concept at the heart of Oracle's big data management strategy.

    With a sea of options to choose from, however, that's easier said than done. In this three-part guide, SearchOracle editors will provide readers with the tools to select the right data management software for their organization. To begin, News Editor Mark Fontecchio examines the potential for database administrators in the evolving, complex world of big data. Will they still have a role once data scientists come to play? What can they do to remain relevant? Next, longtime contributor Robert Sheldon takes an in-depth look at two popular, and very different, approaches to putting big data to use -- and what those differences mean. To close, Sheldon examines the pricing considerations involved, and often missed, in evaluating two common approaches to Oracle big data architecture.

      • Giving your Oracle hardware performance a shot in the arm

        The performance of your databases and applications- both customer-facing and internal- are essential to your business’s success. And in the quest to improve performance, sometimes trying to dissect and fix code and tune important queries can be time consuming and expensive. You can’t just throw a bunch of hardware at the problem, since not all server hardware is created equal. This expert resource details how to pick the best server hardware for your Oracle environment. Also included is a report on how to determine where the database bottlenecks are and then find the right tools to help open them up. And finally, examine the increasing role that random-access memory (RAM) is playing in database and application environments.
