  • Nailing down a business case for Oracle Fusion Applications

    Oracle Fusion Applications, a suite of enterprise resource planning applications, get a lot of air time. Still, evidence has shown that adoption has yet to hit a blistering pace. While Oracle promises the new applications will bring genuine business value to an organization, some of the hurdles -- among them, cost -- have kept businesses away.

    In this three-part guide, readers will benefit from an in-depth look at how well -- to the surprise of many users -- Oracle Fusion Apps thrive in the cloud. Further, they'll learn why and how to determine the best fit for their organization from Oracle's catalog. First, IT writer Robert Sheldon drills down on the development of Oracle Fusion Cloud Services -- how they came to be and where they're headed. And he gives a rundown of services offered. Next, Alyssa Johnson, Oracle Applications Users Group president, sits down for an interview and details the future of Oracle ERP systems and Fusion Apps. To close, ComputerWeekly writer Lindsay Clark explores the reasons -- despite high expectations for enterprise cloud applications and at least one notable example of a company running them -- Fusion Applications have yet to see a mass conversion.

  • 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.

      • Oracle analytics: Real time isn’t for everyone

        Gaining business insights from company data is no longer just something on the organizational wish list; it's a must-have. But that doesn't mean it's free. Oracle shops starting up business analytics projects must take heed and determine what information is most important and how quickly it should be processed. In this handbook, learn the differences between real-time and "right-time" analytics in Oracle environments, understand what is best for your organization and get the lowdown on real-time data integration and tools.

      • 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.
